A standard reply to "Third Party" scammers.

Post by K4ICL » Sun Jan 30, 2005 3:06 pm

Rule: Accept ONLY CASH payment from any foreign buyer. Here is how.

Background: I have sold a few high dollar items to people in Italy and Russia (Moscow). In some cases, to avoid the high cost of transporting the items, the buyers requested I ship their new purchase to a New York forwarding company. These companies ship point-to-point bulk materials in containers at less cost to the customer.

How is one to know if the offer to buy is legitimate or a scam? Using the approach shown in the example email, below, it doesn’t matter. If the buyer is legitimate the deal will work. If the buyer is a scammer, you will not hear back from him.


Dear XXXX,

I accept your offer to buy my xxxx, however, I am unable to forward you any pictures of the unit. If you wish to purchase the xxxxx, please have your friend deposit the payment of $xxx.xx (Includes shipping within the USA) with the nearest Western Union Office and have the funds sent to:

Your Name
Your Address
USA

Please send me the Western Union transaction number by email. After I have received the proper payment, in cash, from my nearest Western Union Office I will ship the xxxxx to any USA address you provide.

Looking forward to hearing from you,

Regards,

XXXXXX

A Great "SUB-Hobby"

Post by k3ich » Sun Jan 30, 2005 7:47 pm

All these alerts about scammers are certainly messing up a new sub-hobby of mine, which is to collect as many of these bogus checks as possible. So far, I have about $30k worth. I was gonna list one on eBay for $20 but my daughter warned me that even if I clearly stated that the check was bogus, I would STILL be a party to passing a bad check, so I guess I'll just keep them as conversation pieces.

Play along, do whatever they want and when DHL or whatever delivers the "good-as-gold" cashiers check, break off the contact. It's fun to look at the checks with a magnifying glass too. An eight year-old with a $29 printer could make a better one. They're pathetic. You'd think they'd at least try to use a decent looking check. The only satisfaction you get out of all this is that it did in fact cost them quite a bit to "over-night" the checks. It would all be hilarious, except for the fact that I DO know someone who was take for six "large" plus his radio.

Finding gold nugget can really come true when you are really willing to invest in it. Gold nugget metal detecting distinguishes itself from other kinds of treasure finding activity like relics hunting and coins shooting etc. It does not only require an efficient specialized metal gold detector, but also involves a lot of technical skills to operate it appropriately.
