Estonian Scammer #3

November 29, 2007

[This is a new one. The guy avoids being caught by Ebay by using a generic question to get my email but then proceeds to saying he needs a “money manager” and then he offers to send money to paypal if I moneygram it back. The catch is of course the accounts are stolen. I learned Paypal has no balls when I called up and asked may I accept the funds and then return them and call you up. NO they responded, then you are getting involved with them. …Really…. This is as bad as their chargeback policy!]
I hope scammer’s emais show up in the websearch from my blog and that can prevent at least one more scam victim.

My name is ****** *******. It sounds promising and I am interested. Could
you give me your paypal account first as I’m little bit hesitant of giving
mine out first. I could also deposit a dollar in your account just to make
sure this is real :).

Can you explain, this to me. Like am I right with this assertion? You
deposit 300 in my account and I send something like $275 to you? If it
would be mutually beneficial we could do this for even more money.

Thanks,
******

My paypal account is [some poor saps email with my first name oh well]

My mail closed on me, so I may have sent this twice! Yes that is
absolutely fantastic! My paypal email is actually a business accBeount too
so it should not have problems with being a personal account. I’ll let you
know first thing when buyers send payment and send out a moneygram as soon
as paypal money arrives. $300 a transaction Jesus Christ this is awesome
man!!!!

Nigerian Scammer #2

Nigerian Scammer #2. I just got a cancellation notice from ebay that it was closed because of a stolen account. I relist my item and I get this email. If I’m unable to get a buyer this next time I’m pretty sure I’m keeping the computer for myself, oh well.

Hello Mate,thanks for the offer,i am the winning bidder of your item you listed buy

Hi Kate, I’m slightly concerned as this is the second incredibly strange
things that happened with me in regards to this sale.

The first time I listed this the user became an unregistered user kb6454,
and now he wants me to ship the package to Nigeria and then they will
“credit” my account… Obvious scam. So I relisted and then I got an email
saying your account was hijacked.

So I relisted the earlier today for the third time. I’d prefer to do this
through ebay and not outside of ebay, please don’t send payment outside of
it. I’ve relisted on
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&rd=1&item=290185700070
yesterday and would still prefer Ebay’s $20 service fee for their
protection and feedback.

I would like to sell this as I have no use for this laptop, I just camped
outside of Best Buy from 7 till 5 in the very cold weather to get their
“door busters”, but selling is becoming a pain.

Thanks,

My post office closed tommorow so I can’t continue with Christina Esposito
and I also have two buyers!!! I have 2 laptops I’m selling but I already
told Esposito to Bite Me and suck my floppy dong! I’d really prefer not to
work with her, can you refund her monies?

I could also just not get tracking number becaus I no care if she see it.
Should I still deal with Christina and I also sold one to Kate Morgan ???
I am so fucking confused and what about the shipping address.

since Simon Rust thought he was the buyer. I’ve told him i will send it
with  others so i have 2 buyers. My moped is broken and is repaired on
Tuesday so both of you should be happy anyways. My guess is it will arrive
in 3 weeks but i have one last problem.

Now that i have correct i need a passport or Identification before i ship
this out because i got a warning from another member that you were not
