Default Scam

Scam, can't believe this is still going on. Going to tell him cash deal only and we'll see what happens.

Hi,

Thank you so much for your response, I've been working really long weeks at work so I won't be able to meet with you before purchase, but am ok with the price and condition as shown on the advert, I'll proceed in issuing a check to you and when you receive the payment and it clears, I will make arrangement for pickup. So get back to me with below details asap.

Full name :
Physical Address (Only,not po box):
City, State, Zip:
Your cell Phone Number:
Deal Price:

As soon as this is provided, payment will be overnight to you through UPS next day delivery and I will let you know then tracking number of the package. I will also add an additional $50 for keeping other buyers off till my check gets to you, also please delete the posting or mark as sold.

Thanks and I hope we handle this in good faith while waiting to hearing from you

Standard operating procedure. "THEY" have been doing this a long time. Any change from THEIR plans and there will be no more contact. The best you can hope for is to string them along for as long as possible just to waste their time. That will piss them off more than you can imagine. Trust me, I talk from experience.

Told him in person cash deal. I don't think I’ll hear from him.

I was hoping 'F_Inscreenname' would reply. I may be wrong (apologies) but I think he was the one who had a different way to deal with scammers who want to get all your details and then send cheques.

He gave out a false name, received cheques and kept them just for fun. It was F_Inhilarious, I just had to keep his picture.......

If memory serves me correctly, that's exactly what the owner did with them!

I once gave them the Name of the head of our local FBI office AND that address...

They sent me tracking info, and they actually sent a check and it was signed for the by the FBI office receptionist..

Hope they got a kick out of it.. lol
