I recently listed a car for sale on craigslist and other local classified ad services.
This is one reply I got, which is clearly an attempt at scamming:
From: Dave Smith <goldenwum12@yahoo.com>
Subject: [The title of the classified ad for the car]
Hello,
I just viewed your car posting on craigslist and i have interest on it
i will like to know the present condition and two more pictures of the
car before i proceed with the transaction.
Thanks
Problem is, the scammer is not very smart. I did not posted pictures to begin with, so there are no more pictures.
So, I sent this reply:
From: me
To: Dave Smith <goldenwum12@yahoo.com>
Pictures attached.
I intentionally did not attach any pictures. A genuine buyer would have noticed this of course. Instead, the scammer proceeded with the next step, revealing his true intent:
From Dave Smith <goldenwum12@yahoo.com>
To: me
Hello,
Thanks for your reply i got all your information about the car and am ok
with it, i will be making your payment today i need your full name and
address to make your payment today through electronic check i will handle the shipment myself.
All what you need about the mode of payment is to get a Blank check paper and magnetic versa ink to print the check, the check will be sent to your email and you get it printed from it. You can get this materials from the following stores.
1. Office Depot
2. Office Max
3. Staples Store
4. Stationery Store
5. Compusa.
When you get this materials you can print the check out and immediately after the printing you can then get the check cashed at your Bank or any bank of america branch around you I will wait for you to confirm and clear the check.
The payment will be in excess as i will want you to contact my shipper with the excess fund for shipping the car after you must have confirmed and cashed the check.i will wait for your bank to clear the check so you can deduct your own money and send the excess fund to the shipper via Western Union Money Transfer so as to cover the cost of shipping the car from your place to it's destination. I will add extra 100$ for the purchasing of check paper and magnetic versa ink.
For more information about the mode of payment you can check the website www.qchex.com and know more about it .Dont worry i will handle the shipping myself with my shipper. you can IM on this ID goldenwum10@yahoo.com or call me on 9145954296 for more information.
Thanks and God Bless
This is a classic scam where a fake cheque is sent to the victim for more than the amount owed, and the difference is to be wired to the scammer.

Hello,
I'm completely interested in buying it but I'm very busy with work and other important obligations so i anticipate that I'll have an Electronic Cashier Check issued out to you.I'm in no rush with you till funds are cleared in your bank.This is just a means to send bank check to your e-mail instead of mailing it to you and You will need a Blank Business Check Paper to print it from your e-mail. The blank business check paper is sold for $20 at staples, office max or any stationery store. I will reimburse you with additional $50 and we will arrange pick up when payment has been cleared by your bank. Kindly e-mail me back with your Name and Address address and also remove the Ad if you are interested in selling it to me to avoid interruption by others.
Expecting your response with details requested.

craigslist scam

Seems like Joe Scott has changed his name. I am selling a Gazebo on craigslist and received this email within hours of putting the ad up.
I will like to know if it is stil available for sale and also if you can get back to me with a phone number.
Thanks.
At this point no name was given but the email address supplied the name of Cliffton Russ.
The next email I received from him was as follows:
I am highly interested in it and am okay with the price & condition. my mode of payment will be via certified bank check, the check we be delivered to you via e check (www.q-check.com) which is fast,secure and generally accepted at any bank for cashout. only a VersaCheck paper (business size) is required to receive & cash the check which you can easily get from any of this stores (staples, stationary,office depots,walmart) cost $10.00. you will clear the check and have your cash at hand before i make arranagement for it to be picked-up. you can proceed to get the paper and as well provide me with your full name and & contact address which the check will be payable to. am awaiting you reply.

Since most people I know do not talk broken English like this, a major red flag when up. Also, my add specifically said Cash only. I send another email back stating I would only accept cash and work with an individual locally and this was the next email I received.
DOn't crate any atom of fear regarding this mode of payment payment is neither a fraud nor a scam, this mode of payment am introducing to you might sounds or look strange, it's a legit and generally accepted to keep you rest assured about this form of payment I will wait til you get the check cashed at your bank before arranging for the shipment. i would have loved have loved to come over with cash or mail you a check but am currently out on a business trip and I only have access to emails. you can proceed to purchase the VersaCheck paper from any of this stores (Staples,Office Max,Local Office Supply Outlet) which cost $10.00 and as well send me your full name and contact address along with email address where you want the check to be delivered.
The first email address was from clifrusrus@yahoo.ca and the second email was from cliffruss001@live.com.
Please, Please beware of scammers and no matter what you do don't ever give any of your personal information out to these creeps!!!!

!!!PAYMENT HAS BEEN MADE!!! - scammer email JeffCook@in.com

He wanted me to give him my PayPal ID and email address. first of all i dont give my personal information out someone i dont know. Instead I requested his email and ID and he responded my email is the same one i am using now. I was real leery at first, so I played along and got the confirmation from PayPal, but then the address was from Nigeria. and now that I found that others were sent the same mailing address, that right there was my indicator of a scammer.
Hello,
I have just ordered for your payment via PayPal. I am putting my trust in you and hope you will not disappoint me. I have sent your fund via (PayPal). PayPal will contact you immediately they verify your email address. Endeavor to email once you see the confirmation of payment. Kindly package the item ready to go for shipment also remember to ship the item via EMS of USPS so that it will arrive at my friend's address as soon as possible, i will await your email and also Express Mail Service Tracking Number. Please before you send the package, remove the paper work on the package because my friend told me it will reduce the custom charges in its country. I have added additional $100 to cover the shipping cost. I would like you to remove the case and you can put it in a small envelop so will look nice and okay. Here is my friend address below.
NAME :OLORUNTOBI OLALEKAN .O
ADDRESS :30 TEN TEN STREET,IKOLA ROAD OSI OTA
CITY : OTA
STATE :OGUN STATE
COUNTRY :NIGERIA
ZIPCODE :23439
PHONE # :+2348082023465
I will be very glad to hear back from you as soon as you receive the payment confirmation notification of your money...You can also proceed with shipment and also get back to paypal customer care service with the shipment tracking number as a proof for prompt verification so your money can credited into your PayPal account immediately.
Thank You.

"service@paypal.com®" ,
I'm selling my phoneon craigslist and received an email from the above account. He said his name was Burke hercules. And offered to pay me $150 more than I was asking for to cover shipping by usps and to compensate me for sealing a deal. Said their method of payment was through PayPal. And they would post the payment ASAP. When I did my share of research I confronted him about It and never received a reply. BECAREFUL!!
