Example of Scam Emails  Bottom

  • The classifieds here are very busy, because of the safeguards in place we don't have a big problem with scammers.

    However the criminals never stop trying so always be alert when you sell something online.

    Here is a scammer that was just reported by multiple members who all received the identical initial contact on their ad and then the identical followup email when they responded.

    In case you don't know, the ultimate goal is to "overpay" by some method (usually a very good fake cahiers check) and then get you to wire them the cash difference with some clever story.

    Hi, I am deeply sorry I will not be able to come to take a look at it
    due to my wife who has just delivered our second baby. I just deem it
    fit that I have to be with her for some necessities which she wouldn't
    handle on her own and receive some visitors who will be checking on
    the family to give their congratulatory messages. I want you to
    consider it sold to me and I will immediately instruct my financier to
    make a certified bank check of the exact amount to you once you
    receive it I will wait the appropriate time for it to be confirmed
    cleared then I will handle the pick up by my transport company. Please
    provide me with the following information below now in order to get
    the payment to you.

    (1) Your full name as it will appear on the payment.
    (2) Your address to ensure delivery in your courier service.
    (3) Your phone number.
    (4) Amount

    I am waiting to hear from you.

    Regards,

    Bryan Luebke
