    I politely responded that Craigslist states clearly above ALL adverts....
    Avoid scams and fraud by dealing locally! Beware any arrangement involving Western Union, Moneygram, wire transfer, or a landlord/owner who is out of the country or cannot meet you in person.

    Such a shame, I truly need a new home. The jerk.

    I hate this stupid scam!!!

    OMG, I knew it was a scam when I got the same reply above back from him. I'm still very mad knowing there's this kind of people exist...I hope very bad things will happen to them...this guy deserves the worst things
     
  6. MAD_AS_HELL

    MAD_AS_HELL New Member

    Bad Things have already happened to him! Look at where he lives? look at what he has to do to get money, to eat, etc......he cant afford an education, he cant afford to eat, he cant afford to live somewhere that doesnt have a dirt floor, They look at US as wealthy, STUPID westerners, that are easy to manipulate. They also prey on lonely ppl who belong to dating sites. In the end they ask for money and get it through western union. This is a HUGE operation! Dr. Phil had an episode on internet fraud. Actually located the hub of where these people work out of, its a huge room with wall to wall computers in NIGERIA AFRICA, kind of like a computer cafe, where these people sit on the computer and do this as a job! It was amazing! So please beware! "If it sounds too good to be true then, it probably is too good to be true" As soon as they say AFRICA, or " IM OUT OF THE COUNTRY" its a scam! How we can protect ourselves is to make sure the ads have a local phone number so that we may call and talk to someone and arrange a person to person meeting for an actual showing.
    Be careful out there, theres alot of bad people out there.

    If they want to send you a cashier's check or money order, or mention Western Union or MoneyGram that is the first sign it is a scam.

    If they are sending you money how can they turn it on you for a scam? Does the check never come? Is the check no good? I dont understand how that can work.

    They don't send you real money. They send you a fake check and you get stuck with it when it bounces and you already sent money to the scammer.

    In this case, the scammer who is pretending to own the house, is not sending any money to the victim, he is requesting that they send him the first month's rent and deposit via Western Union. By the time the victims realize they have been scammed, he's picked up the money using a fake name or a mule and he's in Nigeria beyond the jurisdiction of U.S. law enforcement. The number given is a UK Global redirect which forwards the phone call to his location outside the U.K. That's why you NEVER send money via Western Union/Money Gram to somebody you don't know.

    I have something up on craigslist.com for sale. He was saying that he is going to send me a check and then I am to deposit it and then give the guy coming to pick it up the rest of the check for his delivery fee. Obviously if the check doens't clear then I am not giving away my boat for sale. Any ideas about how he could scam me on this?

    He's going to overpay you with a fake check and ask for money back. Then the check bounces and you'll eat it so better to stop whatever it is and don't do it.
     
  17. report him

    you guys can maybe call the better buesinss bureau or the police and show them the string of emails/his history online. i emailed this guy about a house- and as soon as i saw the western union comment, googled his name and saw it was a scam.
    AND on the craiglist site- there is an email address you can use to mention if someone is "fraud"- here is the link.
