New Scam

Postby Knightster » Wed May 13, 2015 2:24 pm

I have a boat advertised in the Classifieds and received an email this morning flagged as possible phishing by Gmail. The sender (frankdaniel670@GMAILCOM) wanted to buy the "item", quoted the text of the ad, but did dot know the asking price. Said they could only pay with PayPal and would arrange for pick-up after the transaction was completed.
PayPal advises that these emails are used to get your PayPal account number (if you have one) or send you to a fake PayPal website to get one. Either way, they use the information to swipe your money.

I've built a few boats and had them on Craigslist and other places. I think I had last 1 on here in the " all other boats" catagory. Anyway the first few days I've had any for sale it'll be people emailing and texting an they know all about it except price. If u don't respond u won't hear back from them

Had my camper for sale on CL and some scammer tried to pull the exact same thing on me. I texted him back and said if he would mail me cash I would tell him where to pick up the camper. Don't know why but I never heard back from him. :dontknow:

I had the exact same thing when i posted my four wheeler last week. Oh FYI I'm selling my honda rancher 420. when they email me asking about the"item" you know its BS. craigslist is good sometimes but easy for people to try to scam you.
better to keep quiet and look dumb than to open your mouth and prove it.
