[email protected] is also an email he is using. I managed to string him along for 27 messages until I tired of it. Good times
Hello Guest - Please always operate based on "buyer beware" and don't trust anyone you don't know when using these classifieds!
Thanks for doing that!!!PINNING THIS into the wanted to buy section.
Please do report anyone scamming/suspicious accounts. We can investigate/ban accounts on this site that try this sort of thing.
There are probably dozens of scammers every day that target folks with the hopes that you'll be tempted to trust them unfortunately.
Everyone should always operate on the basis of "buyer beware" and don't trust anyone they don't actually know, and never do any transaction (like the paypal friend/family or a zelle request) that leaves you no protection/recourse.
I have been trying to find the zombie girl props to purchase for a long time, and I got an email from someone claiming to have two of them. After much back and forth, I agreed to pay him (at least I think it's a him) and, natch, he disappeared after I sent the funds. I'm writing this with the hope that nobody else gets cheated by this guy. I posted that I was looking for the items and got an email from someone on this site saying that he knew of someone who had been advertising the zombie girls. I thanked him and emailed the guy who was allegedly selling them.
He went by several names, so I'll list them here so that you can be careful not to interact with him.
[email protected] gmail.com
[email protected] yahoo.com
..and if anyone reading this actually has the zombie girls and is ethical, please LMK. Thanks.
I posted a WTB thread on mylespaul.com. I got an email from the same guy with a fraudulent offer. His mistake was two fold:I was targeted by a scammer today who saw one of my "Wanted to Buy" postings. I have been jerking them around for a couple of hours trying to get more information but figured I should finally warn people here.
Look out for "Iblis45" on HF, [email protected] gmail.com, [email protected] yahoo.com (where they tried to get me to pay).
I don't have time to post the entire exchange, or even sum it up in detail, but they pm'd me as Iblis45 (which is now gone), saying that they had recently purchased a number of items from someone named Mike ([email protected]), and that they knew he was also trying to sell Demon Guard. I emailed the person (thinking it was legit, initially), and mentioning that I knew it would be expensive to ship (I cited $285 as an amount I once spent for shipping on a comparable prop). mikescott (but who used Scott as their given name, a mistake someone from China, for example, would make) immediately replies back that it would cost $370, shipped. Took me a minute or two from there to realize this was a scam (if it sounds too good to be true, it is, and if you don't understand that...). Demon Guard would probably sell for $5-600 or more, plus shipping. I inquired about the condition, asked for photos. They said condition was excellent, didn't even respond to my requests for photos. Said they would ship immediately after I paid. They gave me the jamesmokay yahoo address (which I think I may have seen warnings about before, it sounds familiar). They of course asked for "PayPal with no fee", i.e. friends and family, for which I would have no recourse.
Anyway, this is clearly a scam. Ignore any contacts from the above screen-names, email addresses, etc.
My pleasure. Though I will say that my Gmail is my forst name followed by five numbers that would appear random, so...;-)Random words (including names) followed by a few numbers is generally a sure sign of a scam email address.
Thanks for the heads-up on this one.
So.... You're one of them! Quit calling me during dinner asking if I want to extend my car's warranty or demanding that I pay off my student loan! (Which I did from 1986 - 1991. 😇)My pleasure. Though I will say that my Gmail is my forst name followed by five numbers that would appear random, so...;-)
If you've been contacted by anyone recently registered on this site telling you they have a friend/person and providing a secondary contact (like email) do please hit the alert on their message or you can private message me their user name (either copy their name or their profile URL in the address bar) so I can trace their info and see if they're on any blacklists. If so, can ban them and force them to re-register and come up with another round of emails and if we make it a hassle without any rewards, they may stop coming to scam people on our site.Seeing these "instead of posting in my original post for the item, they PMed me and told me to email someone else" warnings has piqued my interest. No replies to my seeking a Rubies grave walker post, but I've gotten private messages telling me to email people. Not saying that can't ever be the case, but I'm definitely second guessing now.
Thanks! they were going around contacting several others too. Will be breaking the contact email link in your post so as to not encourage them.jiuuyeo9863 started a new conversation with you at 6 ft animated Sally by Gemmy
