Well the thing is, as you might know, craigslist is a
haven for email scams, so a message with bad grammar
demanding a zip to start off an exchange isn't a good
base for trust. Anyway, the bike is located in Central
Jersey and I can have some pics for you soon. In the
meantime, if you have any questions about the bike
specifically, ask away...

I have ommitted my communication since I originally fell for the scam due to not educating myself about them prior to posting my ad. DOH!
I did receive fraudulent international money orders in an envelope with no return address postmarked from Paris, France. I also received the usual instructions to cash the money orders at my bank today and kindly wire the remainder to the "private shipper" who is also located in Paris, France.

my bank will take it not knowing it`s no good for 10 days.then they find out it was stolen. so that scam is old news.are there any new scams?
lancem,i hope you didn`t fall for that SCAM.
on dating sites pretty,young models sell photos to scammers.someone pretends to be the photo that the lonely guy is looking at on the screen.1 thing they ask for is for the guy to create an account on yahoo message.i don`t know how to explain it.it`s like the scammer uses the guys account[new email address]to
hide from the law.does that make any sence?

subjectThanks for your word
Robert bear with me once again the money order will arrived in the mail from today friday, the shipping fees has been included in the payment and the shipper details, All you need to do upon recieving the payment is to get hold of the shipper and set p pick up date while you take payment to the bank and cash, after then you contact the shipper with the shipping fees via western unionmoney transfer so that they can schedule pick up for the item. Infact Enclosed with payment is the shipping instruction.

"Hello am still pretty waiting on you to email me your payment details such as your name and address including your area code and telephone number so that i can proceed with remmitance of payment and forward it in the mail as soon possible, i will be going to conmtact a shipping agent that will be coming fdor the home pick up after payment has been recieved".

this guy sent me $2,550 in money orders for a pipe I was selling for $150 here on TT. Of course he wanted me to wire him the change after shipping costs. He insisted I deposit the M.O.s in my account then immediately send him the pipe and wire the balance back to him via western union...lol!
Oh, and his mail with the MOs etc. came from France. No return address.

Same deal 3 MO's for $850 each. I was unaware of these scams. I just thought it was some idiot with bad grammar, I was suspicious of him not asking anything about them. Like what years and if they would fit. Kinda figured he knew what he wanted. Then I got the letter from france....lol! Photocopy with that killer grammar, no namein the header or sign just "hello," and no mention of any part. I google earth-ed the address, both bunk. Starting with 1 duh! Orlando, FL. for the MO's and Paris for the western union transfer. the money grams came from Dollarwise, searched them and they have 12 locations in WA state. At first I offered to cash them at a cashing place (not @ my bank) because my bank was closed, then I thought better of it. So I sent him a reply asking for his address and phone number so I can return them, as the parts is not for sale anymore. We'll see if I hear from him! Then I searched here and found this thread.
I just got a reply as I was writing this! What a jackass, well I guess they got nothing to lose. He wrote...
moreso if you find it difficult to go to the cashing outlet or Busy , i guess you can complete the transaction tommorow after you ve finish recieving the money from the bank, am suggesting.
How could I string him along more, or piss him off besides slurs like "frog" etc?
My question is. Do these thieving, punk asses ever do anything online with your name, phone # and address?
ALL thieves are a waste of air, and should be exterminated.

Am Dayour Coal and i want to make inquiries about this item for my client which is interested in immediate purchase of this item and is ready to pay through certified cashiers check. Before the check will be sent to you,Why are you selling it?In your opinion, what sort of condition is it?How long have you owned it?Have you owned it from new?)If not how many previous owner?what year is this item manufactured?an you help me determine the weight?what is the final price?)i have a friegth company on my own will be available for pick-up of the item? because the operate 7:00am to 7:00pm mon-saturday, i want to tell you that it will be including some extra amount on the check which is meant for the shipping of this item to the buyer destination. After you deduct your money You will send the remaining money to the shipping company immediately in other to come for the pick up faster.If all this is understood by you get back to me with your full name,address,phone number and where to send the check to immediately.Hope to hear from you soon.E-mail (md_coalsmith1986kittymail.com)Thanks.
I sent him and email with answering the questions he asked. After reading this thread I am completely convinced that this is a scam. If he sends am e-mail back still interested in the "items" I think I will have him ship the "Cashiers Check" to my school address and then bring them to my bank and tell them that I am pretty sure that they are fake and that I want them to check it out. I can also get the senders IP address from the e-mail headers and track that IP. In my reply e-mail I asked where he is located so if it doesn't match up to where he tells me then i know it's a scam. Maybe I can take out one of these dirt bags.

i`m thinking no one will come get the bike.scammer wants your money.
you should call police.
dating sites are also full of scams.if you see a photo of a pretty lady,it`s really not her you are typing to.i think they buy photos from modeling agents.
these scams are old,you would think they would try something new.

Oggetto: VENDO CBR 600 rr 2005 5500 euro
I don't mind getting the Item for the price because it worth the price and I think I am pleased with it. I will like you to know that Payment would be through a certified european cashier's cheque, the payment is also going to be including with the shippment money so as soon as you have the funds you send the balance to my shipper that will be incharge of the shipment.You will have the payment through my associate in the U.S.A. Because I do not have cash presently and would not like to loose the purchase item and also avoid delay because of the urgency in need of it. Kindly give me the
 your name that is going to be writting on the check
 your address that the check is going to be forwarded to.
 your phone number.
 your last offer.
Also you will not be in-care of the shipment to my country, because I have a trusted international shipper that I have been using for the past 18 years that will come for the pick-up of the goods in your location after payment has been confirmed by you.
Please make sure you do everything to make the purchase as clean as it was mention.any other interested parties tell them it has been sold.
My Regards to you and your family.

or money orders that the scammers mail to them.the seller could end up behind bars.
i`m thinking call cops as soon as scammers contact seller.there is probably nothing they can do beacause they are operating outside the usa.
Posted 29 February 2008 - 11:32 PM
Anyway I got another one on the hook, so I wrote him the following. This should be what anyone should write a suspicious intrested party.
"1. Are you in France, Nigeria, Russia or any other scaming countries?
2. Are you paying $2500 with fake money orders, and I have to western union the rest back to you?
3. Do you have a "shipper" that will pick them up?
4. What kind of bike do you have? ....
If not, then I will send you the photos. And I apoligize for the accusation.

My office gets a call from an operator saying they work for "a hearing impared service".
A staff member checks out the companies and finds that they are legitimate. After a call back we sell a "hearing impared customer some equipment". They use a two different credit cards for each piece of equipment explaining that they don't want to max out either card. We have a security credit card system, we have to feed in the name of the person, the billing address, and the three didgit number on the back of the card. Both transactions are approved and the "customer" signs a purchase contract and faxes it back to us.
The next day we get another assisted call from the same customer. They explain the equipment needs to be shipped to Hawaii and that the transport company does not process credit cards. The customer asked if we could bill their credit card for the shipping amount and then wire that amount to the shipping company via Western Union. Bingo! The red flags go up. I tell my staff member to call the CC company right away and explain the request and check out the CC numbers.
The CC company tells us that the names and addresses don't match the CC numbers and it appears fraudulent. We asked the CC company if there was a way to get them the info and fax number to them so they could investigate the stolen cards. The customer service rep gave us a phone number to call. We called the "fraud" department...........push 1 for this push 3 for that..................so on and so forth. After several calls nobody has called us back.
I have the staffer call the local FBI office to report the fraud and to give them the fax number (we checked it out, it is in Alabama). They give us an identity theft number, same thing............press one for this, three for that.............................. We never get a response.
In the mean time this "customer" keeps calling wonder if we could send money to the "shipping company" in Oakland. I do a lot of export and I have never heard of this company, nor has anyone in the Bay Area. I tell my staffer to string them along and get as much info out of them as possible to give to the authorities. After two weeks the "customer" quits calling. Now a month later, I still have not heard back for the CC company or the FBI.
No wonder there is so much fraud going on, no one cares.

I have forwarded your vehicle information to my client and after evaluation and due to time constraint on the fact that we are running short of time. I'm delighted to tell you that my client has recommended your vehicle, with full interest and he has instructed me to carry on with his transaction,he hopes the engine is serviced and oil changed too .He cant wait to see the vehicle parked in his garage.
However,My client made out a certified cashiers check of( US $19,000) before he traveled to london for death of his daughter,for a previous vehicle and its shipment charges etc,but it was unfortunately sold.The amount on the check he deposited for the vehicle is bigger than what should be paid to you now, so the check is now meant for the total expenses which includes the purchase of your vehicle,the pick up of the vehicle from its present location and the shipping charges/other necessary shipping arrangements. However he has instructed us to carry on with this transaction. So you're required to d deduct the cost of your vehicle being ( US $12,900)and send the balance of( US $6,100) to the Agent ( our shipper ) for him to be able to offset shipping & tax charges, and other cosmetic repair costs.After payment has reached you and balance sent to shipper, the shipper's agent will come for inspection, pick up (of vehicle & signing of title papers), make some cosmetic touches and drive to a prepaid shipper to be shipped to my customer.and also conclude other necessary shipping arrangements.so you don't have to bother yourself about the pick up and shipping arrangements.
Please Confirm this and provide full name,correct address and phone number for check payment to be delivered to you via fed ex courier .
Thanks and God bless you.
