Snappy, while this is a common scam it still needs to be out there. By the time you and the bank figure out that the checck is no good, you would've been out of your part and the extra funds that you wired to them. Good job on this one!

Re: SCAMMERS Emailing from OUR CLASSIFIEDS!!!!

Watch out---- if you give them any information at all, they will try and use it to get into your paypal account and tap you dry. That's why I recommend that you don't have any communication with what appears to be a scammer. Don't fool around with them by bidding on their BIN $6,500 auctions for a 69 Z/28---- thats how they start to gleem information from you. They will use that little information to their advantage. Let's stick together to make scamming the least profitable industry ever! Charlie

Re: SCAMMERS Emailing from OUR CLASSIFIEDS!!!!

I like to lead them on and get them to send me the check (I enjoy seeing how real some of them look). Then I tell them I will send the overpayment back to them in the form of a check...It really ruffles their feathers.

I have even turn a few in to the local authorities, but they tell me that they can not do much.

You can scam the scammers too. Sometimes they will send you actual cash. Its risky and not worth it but i have heard stories about it.

I personally like to send contact info, but use the address and phone # for the FBI- (202) 324-3000

Washington, D.C. 20535-0001

Wouldn't you like to be there when the idiot dials that # and it is answered, all be it by an automated system! I wish I had the # for their IC3 (internet crime) division!

Re: SCAMMERS Emailing from OUR CLASSIFIEDS!!!!

What difference does the nationality make when you are a crook? Nigerians are the most common. The site I posted is hilarious. Now I am wondering how one would know where a scammer is from. There are many ways to obtain a IP from a country and disguise your actual location...
