Scammer Texting an Offer

Post by w7ry » Sat Nov 18, 2017 5:21 pm

Same old story of someone sending you a cashiers check for more than you are asking for and item...

BUT THIS TIME they had the cahonies to send me a text offering to do this!

Their phone number is 251-616-2367 or 2516162367.

When will "they" learn that this is a new twist on a very old trick? :evil:

Seller beware!

Jim:

1. Try running a Google search on that phone number. It may be out of Seminole, Alabama.

2. Get a free "trial" membership in "Peoplelooker", "Number Guru" or a similiar search. You might find out who the clown is.

3. Try *67 plus his phone number at 0200 Eastern time about six or eight times.

"Good luck and good hunting."
