dealings with Sheila Dedrick??

Post by KN4N » Wed Sep 21, 2005 12:11 pm

She (he) sent me email on item I had posted on here, wants to buy it for friend in Europe, will send me a Travelers Cheque on Bank of America.
Of course it will not be shipped until BA clears the cheque. Anyone else had any dealings with this person? "old Bill"

Scam

Sounds like a take-off on the scam that has been running for several years.

It IS a scam...

I had the same experience. The scammer declared that he/she was a Christian, and American citizen and trustworthy. ... you betcha..

The clinching tip off was that everything had be be done in a hurry.

I responded to the person demanding that all payment MUST be done via Western Union. All of a sudden there was no hurry and no "Sheila".

I went along with the scam just to get the travllers cheque for framing, with no intention sending anything. hope I don't get myself into a bind doing this.
