Sarah Smith, purchase


New Member
Hi everyone,

I am from Malaysia and I wish to report another scam by this person name Sarah Smith. I googled her name and found this forum.

Coming from a third world, our local police will not act on this scam that I encountered just recently.

I hope by exposing another trick of 'hers' will alert the rest of the world. All these scammers really disgusted me. :mad:

I recently posted on a local free sale site selling my second hand CIMA exam text books. As my email and mobile are listed on the sale site, that's how 'she' approached me.

At first, I didn't suspect anything, but when the second email came, I noticed 1 huge mistake - She claimed that she is from Scotland and are planning to buy my text books for her kid at Nigeria - CIMA exam is from England, so buying locally is definitely cheaper than incurring postage rates, etc.

Here are the details:

Good that you searched. If everyone did, maybe no one would lose any money.

and...police in Malaysia are actually taking this kind of fraud more seriously but if the criminal is not in Malaysia there really isn't anything they can do about it.

Hi Everyone,

After I reported this 'Sarah Smith' scam here. 'She' disappeared, and has not contacted me since.

I believe these are well organized and IT-savvy con organisation. I hope by reporting this fraud, it will make the internet a safer place for all.

Thank you.
