Here is and EMAIL From a SCAMMER

Post by n8rt » Tue Jan 05, 2010 12:45 am

Actually this person, sent me 3 Emails, all the same text , here is the Scammers Email address :

"DARNELL LOCKSLEY" <privatemailbox49@sify.com

I am sure the Scammers changes their Email address all the time, so do not answer these Scammers or get involved.

Here is the Message:

To:
mcyman@yahoo.com
HELLO DEAR...I HAPPEN TO COME ACROSS UR ADVERT ON WANTING TO
BUY THE AFOREMENTIONED ITEM.IT MIGHT INTEREST YOU TO KNOW THAT I HAVE THE
REQUESTED ITEM FOR SALE IN PARTS OR COMPLETE.WHY NOT GIVE ME A SWIFT RESPONSE
WHY OFFER LAST FOR THERE ARE OTHER PROSPECTIVE BIDDERS VYING FOR THE SAME
ITEM.SO LEAVE ME A NOTE TO SIGNIFY INTEREST.THANKS

Tip offs that the Email is a Scam , are WORDS Like:
DEAR, I have the requested item, Swift response, poor English!

Be Careful Selling/trading, these Scammers are out there just waiting to nail you!

Helping or hurting?

You know the scammers probably don't bother or have the time, but as we educate others about scam attempts, are we also not educating the scammers?
Anyway just a thought
