Scammer in the Classifieds

Recommended Posts

I've got Cat2Fold listed here in the classifieds, and I got a stupid scam artist trying to fuck me...

Has it happened to anyone else...?

There's an entire thread on this sort of thing somewhere.

Search the forums and you should find it.

Your thread title is misleading.  And if you actually replied to that...

Good luck with boat sale though!

Standard scammer BS, best to just ignore it, although I remember guys competing to see who could collect the most fake-bogus checks!  I got one once from a legitimate College outside of Chicago.  Called the bank, and they said it was a real account, but when I went there to attempt to cash, they said it was bogus.

I have several times received threatening phone calls form Asian accented people telling me that they are from the IRS and I am in big trouble, if I don't pay them money, or some other nonsense.  I'm sure that some people are naïve and taken in by these crooks, but "A fool and his money soon go separate ways", who said that?  Was it W.C. Fields, or P.T. Barnum?

The site that explains  some of the 'million dollar scams' ... and has hilarious (ok funny for me.... I may just be demented, as I love sailing...) examples of how they scam the scammers...  The BBC has one interview with one scambaiter....

 

I am sorry that some twit attempted to take you in... but be thankful it was not for millions... by a super scammer... that managed to defraud a Brazilian man, Nelson Sakaguchi, a Director at Brazil's Banco Noroeste based in São Paulo,[2] of $242 million, $191 million in cash and the remainder in the form of outstanding interest,[3] between 1995 and 1998.

We had a local radio station phone one of these guys. He first apologized for  taking so long to reply. He explained that he was in jail for attempted murder for trying to kill some one who was trying to rip him off. 

The guy in Nigeria immediately hung up.
