Seller beware

Post by Fester » Thu Dec 06, 2012 9:56 pm

I finally got a nibble on a pup I posted on here a couple days ago it reads like this

Dear Friend,
Explanation to make things easier for you is by spacing the email am typing
up anyways hope the new member of my family is fine there and you too ?

I will send you the payment and Once its arrives via ups or fedex courier
service
You will deduct the accrues fund that belongs to you

You will take the rest fund on the check in cash to the nearest Western union
money transfer around your home there either any store there or banks could
have a Western union money transfer

I will give you some information on the email here which says instruction to
follow and you will take the name and address of the shipper agent and
proceed to the western union money transfer place to send the money to the
shipper agent info.

You will also tell the western union agent that you want the money to be send
in money in a minutes version and once the fund is sent you will be giving
the receipt and on the receipt there some details on it which you will be
giving to me or to be more easier you can scan the receipt to me via email.

Afterward, the shipper agent will pick up the fund and they will have me get
the easiest date and time from you which they can come for the pick up and
the shipper agent also have some other things to pick up for me so i hope you
understand this all let me know asap you finish reading this to let me know
if you understood. I hope to read from you soon.
Regards
jackie

These types of scams have been going around forever. Just put an add on Craigslist and see!

They must still work though I cannot imagine how. Otherwise they wouldn't still be sending these stupid emails.
