The same thing is done with Ebay and Paypal as well. Good lookin out bro. Anytime I get an email like that I close it and go directly to the real website and log in from there. This way if the message is real it will be on that site.

These damn scam artist b!tches really pizz me off!!! Here we are working our azzes off trying to have nice things and these punks sit on their computers all day long to try and rip people off. When I sell things on Ebay and they send me these emails about they want to give me 300 bucks for something that cost 150 bucks, I send them very violent "I hope you burn to death & Go phuk your mother" type sh!t and they don't send anything back.....

Sorry...I had to vent....I hate theives and cons...scum of the planet!!!

I sit at a computer all day at work. I have Yahoo Messenger up and running. About every other day I get a message from some "young single girl" in West Africa. I tell them to eat chit and die!

Make sure when you get the Ebay types that you "forward" the email to [email protected] for evaluation, and then delete.
