SCAMMER PRETENDS TO WANT TO BUY A SCOOTER

July 2004
The Tale of the Scooter Honda Elite CH150 1985

Hi, Folks.

This looks very suspicious. Have you run across similar things? This is the 3rd such response I've received to a couple of website ads that I've posted on craigslist and another free classified ads type website in an effort to sell a scooter.

Regards [from Canada]

From: Mark Donero <markddon@yahoo.com>
I am a New and used motorcycles and scooters dealer.I am interested in your Advert.I would want to know the firm price and mode of payment. In respect of shipping i have a reputable Shipping company with offices in the U.S that takes care of my shipping. Awaiting your urgent response

Hi, Mark.
I am not a dealer. Just trying to sell off this scooter which I've been using for the last few years. I was sort of assuming that the only way to sell this would be to find someone locally in the Vancouver, BC, Canada area who would be able to come over and look at it in person, then pay with cash or certified check. Short of trying to sell it through eBay, I don't see how we could arrange to have both us of protected from the inevitable trust issues that come up with long distance transactions of this nature. Where are you located? Is it practical for you or an agent to come and look at the scooter in person and buy it if its condition and price are satisfactory to you?

....thanks for the mail you send to me...so i want the bike and i will like to know the price of the bike....so i can send payment to you asap ok
MARK DONERO

Ok. My best price is $US 1000, you arrange and pay shipping. Payment via Money Order or other vehicle that could be cleared and verified quickly would be acceptable. Now, what do you need to satisfy yourself that it is worth it to you? I presume you've seen the photos of the scooter that I posted along with the advert.

.....Thanks for the mail,i am ok with your price..
Inrespect of payment i have a client in the U.S who is owing me $7,565.All i need to do to make payment easier and faster is to instruct him to procure a cashiers
check and mail it to you on the
1,Name
2,Address with country and
3,Telephone number you want on the check and you
know it takes 24hrs for a cashiers check to clear .But i would want to know if i can trust you to send my balance to me via WESTERN UNION MONEY TRANSFER after the money must
have cleared in your bank to enable me prepay the shipping company here so that they can instruct their nearest office to come and pick it from your location.pls mail me ASAP to enable me arrange payment.

Hi, Ken.

The scooter is still available. It is red, all parts work and the engine runs well. I am willing to sell it for $US 1000. I don't care how you want to pay for it but will only release the scooter to your shipper once the money is confirmed in my bank account. If this is acceptable, send me the $US 1000 in whatever form you like. If the scooter sells before your payment clears my bank account, I will refund your payment to you by any means you prefer, after taking the cost of transferring the funds back to you out of the amount. If you want to examine photos of the scooter click on the following link. The link also gives more details about the scooter. If you need further details, let me know.

[a craigslist link]

From: Kindly Contributor in Canada
To: ken melvin <ken_inc@outgun.com>
Hi, Ken.

This begins to read like a scam where eventually you will demand that I send you the change from $4k before your money actually clears in my bank account.

Why $4k? Who is Seagate Brokers and why can't I find any references to them on Google? What is your contact information? Where is your dealership? What is your website URL? Is your business listed in any reputable reference document where I can verify its reputation independently? It seems a bit hard to believe that my scooter is worth all the expense of shipping its bulk and weight (130 kg) half way around the world in addition to my asking price.

SCAMMERS GO AFTER LANDLORDS

June 2004:
Received from Vancouver:

Dear Scamorama,

As I had a basement apartment for rent in May and early June of 2004 I advertised online for potential tenants, as well as in a local newspaper. I am forwarding you a series of emails I received from supposed prospective tenants, which I initially thought might be a new wrinkle on the Nigerian letter scam, but sounded legit for a while. I continued to communicate with one of the senders (he called himself Allen Cook, a very Anglicized name, despite his lack of English literacy) until it became clear that this was, in fact, a new wrinkle on the Nigerian letter scam. As two different email accounts are involved, you will be receiving these forwarded emails as a series, rather than as one email. I apologize for that.

I hope you can use my experience in your quest to shut these fraudsters down, or at least keep them so busy they don't have time to ply their nefarious trade.

Hi xxxxx,am sorry for the delay.I hope u understand.i will like to tell u about my friend.He is a bussiness man like me too.he told me he sent it in west africa bcos he is in west africa for some bussiness.since the day he told me he has sent it.i have been trying to get intouch with him but it is very hard i mean the phone is not going through.this is bcos he is in africa.Telecomunication in africa is still not perfect like that of ours.e.g USA,canada,london etc.so to comunicate with him is hell.but i am still trying hopfully it will get to u before next week runs out.I still have not gotten the map.please you are my hope please keep my apartment for me please.just dont worry the check will get to u.please just have patient.If u dont mind i will like to sent u my wedding pics.MY friend lives in england too .yes,he sent the check.i dont actually know the name of the lacal courier he used.but i know u will get the check before next week runs out.that is to say before on the 12 of this month.there is know course for alarm u just stay calm ...ok.everything is under control.just keep,keeping my aparetment for me please.when am coming i will get u and ur family something.do u have kids?...allen

Hi Allen,

I'm sending this to you from my hotmail email address because Yahoo in North America has been down for about a day, but my husband said Yahoo in Europe is still working. Please send me duplicate replies to:

xxxxxx@yahoo.com and to: xxxxxx@hotmail.com

That way I'll be sure to get it.

I got you a map of the downtown Vancouver area today and will get you one of the whole city next week.

Anyway, it's Saturday night at about 8:30 pm Vancouver time. I haven't gotten a call from any courier nor has one come to my house today to deliver your friend's check. Sundays the couriers don't work, so I hope it arrives on Monday. Are you sure he actually sent it because it should have been here by today if he sent it on Thursday? Does your friend also live in the London area and did he tell you the name of the courier he used?

It's important to me to know what is happening because the people who wanted the suite have now gone elsewhere. Fortunately a nice young couple saw it yesterday and they also want it, but I told them you have first choice on it, since you came first. They are willing to wait a couple of days but I can't keep them hanging on too long either. It's not fair to them.

I know you are stressed with the wedding, so I don't expect a long reply, just please send me a short message with the information about your friend's courier. Thanks.

Scam-o-note: we are guessing the check would have been for an amount greater than the deposit, the difference being expected back in the form of a Western Union check.

SCAMMER PRETENDS TO BUY A SCANNER

June 2004
Received from the USA:

Dear sir i think i will go in a bussines tripp and the name and addres is from my brother that in case i'm not in country in the moment when the transaction will be close. That is not a problem. I wait the payment comfirmation.Thank you.

I'm still unable to access the site. Why is your address different to the one that you gave me before ?

I just manage the trasaction.
let's close here.

That's fine Brian just send me his details and I'll send it tomorrow guaranteed delivery for Monday.

Or if you prefer I can do a direct bank to bank transfer I just need your brother's name , bank account number and sort code.

If I can collect the scanner tomorrow then I'll do the transfer straight away or if you prefer the cheque that's fine .

hello
you can send a personal cheque at my brother bank because i don`t have a bank account. please let me know if that is ok and i will give you the details reply me asap

If you've already sent the scanner as you said before then I should be able to collect it today. No, I've offered to meet in person . I've offered personal cheque and bank to bank transfer . I'm registered with ebay and I tried to buy it through them . Now I've taken a day off work and spent four hours traveling back and forth to western union offices only to find that what you'd l told me was inaccurate and apparently illegal. If you are genuine then this is very unfortunate for both of us but other than what I've offered I can't do anything else . If this is no good then I suggest you sell the scanner back on ebay.

i don't know and i can't open.I think is a eror.I will wait.See so much time because you think i'm not a serious man.I told you you can trust me and you will have the package in only a day. I read about this scamer but i work with WesternUnion long time.Lock i know something about other payment method like Money Gram. you can visit www.moneygram.com Let's close this deal.

My browser won't open the "manage transaction" link - have you been able to ?

safest-trade.co.uk Inc.

Mee to. I will wait the e-mail that you have sent the money.and i will give the shipping details at they.

I've just registered.

I just talked with a friend and him told me to use a 3rd party like www.safest-trade.co.uk please visit because i read and for me is a safe way.reply me and lett me know what do you think.

Brian - I've just been to Western Union again in Leicester (a two hour round trip ) and after filling out the money transfer form they gave me another form to sign which reads "Payment cannot be delayed by 1. changing the receivers name 2. specifying a type of identification or 3. withholding the Money Transfer Control Number from a named receiver. I presume you weren't aware of this because it contradicts what yousaid exactly. I've just taken a day off work to get this sorted out and I'm not going to waste any more of yours or my time with it.
I can't offer any other evidence of my sincerity other than sending you a personal cheque , bank to bank transfer or agreeing to do a Western Union Money transfer on receipt of the scanner. I'm sorry if this is unacceptable to you but there it is.
Enclosed is a scan of the form that I'm referring to - if you want to continue or speak over the phone then let me know.
Otherwise , I'm sorry but I don't see a way forward.

Ok i will wait the comfirmation and i will give the shipping details. Thank you.

Very good - I'll do it tomorrow morning. Best regards,

Lock how i propose you to do the deal.
You will go and send the money via westernunion but you will send at your wife,son...or a name that you want and my address.I will give you the Tracking Number from UPS and you will go to pick up the package.After you will inspect all you have to do is to
call at WesternUnion and change the name in my name.In this case you can be sure i will not pick up the money until you change the name. I told you i have sent the package and i want to see
that you have sent the money. After you will do the payment you will send me ":
Sender name....
Receiver Name.....
#MCTN ...............so i can verify that the money has been sent
Thank you

Brian - I have no way to stop payment if for any reason there's a problem with the scanner once I've paid it into Western Union . The Western Union in Leicester assured me that once I've paid the money in the you can withdraw it by showing id and telling them who the sender is regardless of whether you have any tracking or #MCN number or not . I assure you that I'm not trying to rip anyone off .

I'm happy to send you a personal cheque ( by UPS if you prefer) which would obviously contain my bank details and as you already have my address on this email and my written agreement you'd be able to follow up any refusal by me to pay with the law on your side. However that won't happen because I want to buy that scanner off you ! If you're saying that you've sent it (?) and it arrives with me tomorrow then I will immediately pay £580 via Western Union in Leicester.

If you're not happy with this then maybe you'd better put it back on ebay and I'll bid for it and pay through paypal and everyone's happy. Best regards,

Dear sir you don't trust me?What is that.I have already sent package and i think you try to ripp me.I will send a scan paper from UPS but i will not give you the Tracking Number and if you don't trust me i want and you make the same send the money and send me the scan paper from WesternUnion and cover the #MTCN.
Please e-mail me ASAP and don't make some joke.We are bussines man not children Thank you.

Brian -I've just been to the Post Office and they don't do domestic money transfers. I then went to American Express - Western Union in Leicester and they inform me that they're unable to withhold payment once I've paid the money in , which wasn't my understanding . So, either I can send you a personal cheque this afternoon "Guaranteed Next Day Delivery" and email you the post office tracking number or I can do an internet bank to bank transfer ( you just give me your bank account number ) or I can do the same Western Union money transfer on receiving the scanner in full working order. Let me know if any of these solutions are acceptable.
Best regards,

Ok i wait the payment comfirmation tomorow and i will e-mail and with the Tracking Number.Thank you

Okay thanks Brian .
My full address is :

So i need your full details so i can arange the shipping.I will do that tomorow morning.I wait the payment comfirmation from WesternUnion.
Lett me know when you will do the payment. thank you

Don't take it personally , I don't trust anyone . I'll still need a name and location to transfer the money to though .. £580 was my bid If that's acceptable then so long as the scanner is as you say ( new , boxed and in working order ) then I'll pay in the cash and with hold the details until I've received it if that's what you prefer .
I say again that I'd be happy to exchange face to face then we're both secure. Regards,

> :) i think you don't trust me.
lock how we do that.
I propose you that and you will go to send the money now but after you will make the payment don't give me the payment comfirmation (#MTCN) from WU i only want to verify at www.westernunion.com and after you will receive the package and verify this you will give me the code.I'm a serious man and i don't risk my job and my libety and go to jail because i have 2 cildren.

If this is to be a sale outside of Ebay then for your security as well as mine we need exchange names and addresses , likewise if the transaction is to be outside of Ebay I'm not prepared to pay until I've received the scanner- we can get round this by doing a direct exchange.
Buying outside of Ebay from a person on an anonymous email address with no history on Ebay whose item has been removed from sale doesn't inspire me with confidence.

Dear sir sure but i don't have time to meet woth all this bussines.I will send the it thru UPS next day and i will be gald to use for payment WesternUnion. reply me and lett me know if we close the deal today.

Sounds okay - where are you in the country ?
I'm in Leicestershire. We would have to exchange face to face if it's to be done outside of ebay. If that's okay you can call me on ***** ****** or email back

I don't know when this hapening. We can close the deal now. lett me know what do you think.

Yes I still want to buy - I'll bid when it comes back online email when it does .

Have you removed your item ? I can't find it any more and I want to bid . thanks ,

Yes exactly.Is not used never.It work.

Okay thanks, is it direct from manufacturer ? I'm just trying to suss out if it's been used ? ie does it work or if it's ex display or what ?

Is brand new sealed in the box. reply me

Dear linfryt,

Hello linfryt - silly question maybe - but nevertheless, is the sealed in the box scanner new and unused ? thanks .
To view the item, go to:
http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/ebayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=5103263414

I'm not happy with this at all and am only willing to proceed by payment with a personal cheque. If this is no good to you then I'm no longer interested in buying .

I'm willing to send you or your brother a personal cheque recorded delivery and when you receive it I would expect to be able to pick up the scanner immediately , if for any reason at all the scanner isn't available then I will cancel the check straight away.

If this is no good to you then I understand and suggest that we don't waste any more of each others time .

Regards,

Ok i agree and a personal cheque but you will send thru UPS or DHL.?

No I didn't get scammed but I almost did - yes I made an attempt to pay him but thought better of it when I read the western union warnings about changing recipients name on money orders etc - but you know the power of it is, there is still a part of me that says , well maybe he really is trying to sell a scanner ( albeit with bad Engllish ) and it'd be a great deal maybe I should give him the benefit of the doubt ... blah blah ... it's a powerfull carrot they dangle - that scanner is £2,500 by the way .

SCAMMER WANTS TO CONVERT CASH

June 2004:
Received in the USA:

I was contacted by Yahoo Messenger while in a chat room. This person talked to me for several days before asking for help to convert Nigerian Naira to dollars and sending it help her get to the USA. This has been ongoing and I now have a cashiers check in my possession. I didn't see any harm in this until after doing some research. Even this is different than the other examples.

I was instructed to convert the funds when received, but I got a cashiers check for dollars instead. I was to then send them half each by western union to two different names at the same address with the same safeword.

These names are Richard Uzuh, and John Williams
20, Kafa Street
Ikeja, Lagos
Nigeria
23401

The cashiers check looks like any other cashiers check I have ever seen.

It is drawn on Campus USA Credit Union, Gainesville, FL.
#120228
Amount $4,350.00
Dated 6/16/2004
Unable to read the signature but starts with a J. and looks like Juuf Durn

This arrived USPS Priority Mail with delivery confirmation
tracking code 0303 0830 0000 0706 0301
Amount $4.30 (00018871-11)
Mailed from Atlanta, GA 30338

Inside was a Glossy thick envelope with the cashiers check. No return address

I called the credit union at the 800 number and the check was bogus, so I have been playing with them. I said I sent the money out of my own funds since it was hard to cash the check and get cash. They are having a problem getting it. Lol. I have talked with them on the phone. They are going nuts trying to find the money. Love it! I just ran across this website later. Its appears Im just a amateur at this stuff. Some of those letters are great!

Let them spend some of their own money for a change.

SCAMMER PRETENDS TO SELL A CAR

June 2004

Hey I really enjoyed your site. This is a new scam I've recently encountered though it may have been going on for awhile.

The link is to a carpoint car listing.
http://www.carsdirect.com/used_cars/listings/vehicle_detail_prem?listing_id= 9434019&search=3a3b0f0f5401bac9a3a9486aa6941b49-107849814-9434019-dealer_ref erral_vehicle&zipcode=10954
The price is outrageous for a Honda S2000 2003.
I sent an email to make an enquiry and this is the response:

Hello ,
My name is Kim Bradlee and I am glad you are interested in buying my car.
The car was purchased from US.
The car is in perfect condition,it is running perfectly,everything on it is ORIGINAL , with only 28929 miles and
-no Scraches ,
-no wrecked,
-no accidents,
I want you to know that i'm selling at such a low price because my daughter suffered a kidney transplant and i need money very fast.
It's been a pleasure to ride this car, but my daughter's life is more than that.

The car will be shipped from London, UK.From here I will support the shipping taxes, insurance and handling via FedEx and you will receive the car within 4 to 5 days top.The price I hope to obtain is 9.000US$ and if you agree with this price we can start to complete the transaction. The payment must be done using a money transfer because in this way I will ship the car in the same day you make the payment.The inspection period is for 10 days. The car has a clear title wich you will receive it with it and it can be registerd into your name.If you agree with these terms,let me know and i will be more than glad to start to complete the transaction with you.
i'm not asking for any advanced payment or a deposit, all i need is a proof to see if you're really serious about this. i have something safe for you and in this way you'll pay me the money only after you'll receive and test the car. So,all you have to do is to make a deposit (2,000$) for the total amount using money transfer-western union, the deposit you'll be make in cash and for this you need my address.

for the receiver's name you'll use whatever name you want( brother's, father's, neighbour's) so you can be 100% safe that the money won't leave, and after you'll receive the car, you'll change the receiver's name with mine and pay me the rest of the money so i can get payed.
Name: Kim Bradlee
Address:26-27 Collingham Gardens,
City:London
Zip Code: WC1B 5BP
Country: United Kingdom
After this you'll
email me he following informations:
-MTCN:(money transfer control number)
-sender's full name and address;
-receiver's full name and address;
