I just wanted to let everybody know that i had put my bike up for sell and a guy emailed me wanting to buy it... this is what he said...

HELLO,
GOOD DAY, I AM GOLDMAN WASHMAN, I SAW YOUR ADVERT ON THE INTERNET AND I AM HIGHLY INTERESTED IN BUYING OF THAT ITEM, PLEASE IF THE ITEM IS AVAILABLE KINDLY GET BACK TO WITH YOUR LAST OFFERING PRICE, I WILL BE LOOKING FORWARD TO HEAR FROM YOU SOONEST.
REGARDS,
MR GOLDMAN

sounds wierd huh... i yold him the price and he emailed back,

Hello,
Thanks for the mail, I want you to understand that am very much okay with your offer which is $2800 and i want you to know i have contacted my representative in the states who owes me a total amount of $4,500 and he has agreed to make out a Cashier's Check on my behalf for the payments. Having it in mind that business is based on trust ,i would like you to received the checque cash it and wire the excess funds after removing the payment for the ITEM which is $2800 . Then i would like you to wire the remaining $1700 through western union money tranfer to me so that i would arrange for the shipment of the car. If you agree with these terms mail me back with your fullname,address and phone number in which i would forward to my client in the state to issue out the payments to you.
Expecting a response from you as soon as you can.
Regards,
Mr goldman.

NB: Once you received the check i would like you to cash it immediatly and wire the funds so the shipment would commense and i want you to remove $200 for all your stress and effort in cash to a cashing point to cash it.

Found out right after wards it was a scam..... a good one too considering you are getting a cashiers check right off the bat....

Yeah if it ever involves cashing a check then immediatly wiring them a difference its a scam, the check clears your bank a first, you wire the money, then your bank comes back, whoops! turns out it was a bad check, now your out the difference! I get email scams all the time from people overseas talking about someone owes them money so im supposed to transfer it or something... i'll post the next one i get on here for ya! :)

the thing that cracks me up is there are people stupid enough not to see through it and give their money and info away



I have seen these all over the place. I have noticed that the more and more info they give away it leads more and more into the fact that its a scam....

If they just kept it simple and didnt explain so much it would prob work....

:nerd

The way it works, is you will go to cash the check...And most banks will acknowledge it and you can just deposit it(though its on you if the funds dont clear). About a month later or so when you already sent the items and the funds are supposed to clear,they dont! The bank will take back the money you deposited and your account will be negative(if you spent the money) and your items will be gone. And since its out of country there is no real way to follow it or get your money/items back. Because most of those address are fake or not really there anyway. And FBI and most international security agencies wont even touch it. They will make note of it, but they will never actually investigate. Well....Unless it involves over $250,000 worth of money/merchandise....

Anyway...

Its a really great scam if they are more creative with the way they word it. Because the majority of older people who dont know much about computers and really young kids with access to parents credit cards are the ones usually seceptible to these kinds of frauds.


Careful boys and girls!

Same shit happened to me! Also from Nigeria, fuckers...but I received the check 2 weeks after they said they have send it via UPS overnight. The check looked authentic but I was suspecious. So I called the number on the sender's address. They send me a check for 2500 for 3 phones I had for sale.

I mean, come on, how do you make a mistake sending 1k more than what he was supposed to. I mean what can be police do about things like this?

Seriously dude.....

The whole thing is a scam. It is well documented and everyone and their mom warns against getting involved in this. Just stop wasting your time communicating with these people.
Go out and find some buyers and dont bother with these f'ers.
