A while back someone said about people wanting your full name, mailing address and phone number when wanting to buy what ever your selling. Also adding $50 bucks to hold it! This just happened to me! Scumbag emailed me so I just deleted it.
Why wouldn’t you have fun with them? :)
I increased the price $10,000 and my guy still wanted it so your $50 is a lightweight
Tell them youre ph no is BR549
I had that happen on Craigslist and gave them the local police address and phone number as mine and never heard back from them.
Whenever a situation like this arises or I am out shopping and the cashier ask for a phone number I always give them the number of the local state police post. it is an easy number to remember so it works well
Beware of a scammer CLYNN the shit got me on the leatherwall on 11/19 for 400.00 postal money just so you know they are worth less than a personl check ! Got an e mail from my local police who are working with feds said they have identified him? last I have heard. He had at least four adds on leatherwall took my name and handle for one brazen. I am really hoping they pick him up I told the law I was willing to do whatever is required to put him in a cage. Any body who believes the post office is going to help you once your money order disapperars let me tell you a short story. Islander
I always thought Postal Money Orders were a safe way to go. Sounds like you might as well have sent PayPal Gift. Sorry to hear this.
Yup, I was hit up today by “firstname.lastname@example.org“ adding $50 to a BeeStinger MicroHex.
Asked for more to mail it to him...haven’t heard back!
Same guy Hank
I have arrows listed on BS & some dirt-bag (Dan Aloh email@example.com) offered to send me a certified check plus $50. He wanted my address, phone number, etc. I responded with PayPal or nothing. He has not responded....
If someone is willing to give you more for your used stuff than they could buy it new, it's probably a scam. The old, "if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is". I learned this a long time ago when trying to sell my motorcycle. Beware of any buyer trying to sweeten the deal or sending some shipper, or etc.
So they offer you more money than you are asking and they want you to send it first, then you never get the money, that’s the scam?
