How does this sound to you?
We have decided to buy some new bedroom furniture and are simply trying to sell the old set on *****slist. So here we are now, just a few days after running the add. I have had quite a few responses that I initially put on hold, my mistake. I will put the emails that I have recieved from one person below.
I am Thomas Kimberly.I found interest on the item you listed on *****slist and i will like to find out if it is still up for sale and readily available for pick up........
I appreciate your response to my inquiry. I really want to buy this
item from you. I would love to come and check it myself but I
just got married and I'm presently on honeymoon to Palm Beach with my
wife. I would love a surprise change of look in our home on our
return. Pls do withdraw ,with immediate effect, the advert from Web, i
don't mind adding $50 extra for you to do that, so i can be rest
assured that the item is held for me. I should believe it is in good
condition as stated. I will be making the payment via Check, which
my secretary will mail across to you. I'll be picking the item from
you with the aid of my mover. My Mover will be coming to pick it from
you once the Certified Check has been cashed. Pls I will need both
your full name and residential address with postal code, also your
phone number to issue out the payment.
I await your response.
Thanks for your quick reply, your payment would be ready for the mail
today once it is gotten from the bank, as soon as its mailed, I will
inform you about this, so that you are aware of when to expect it,
normally it should take just about 1 to 2 workings days to reach your
place so that the mover can come over for the pick up after payment is
cashed and what he does is to have the item examined and picked up.
So I will need you to hold the Item on my behalf for at least a week
or thereabout for payment to arrive, please I will like if you kindly
inform me as soon as you get the payment so that I can have my mover
ready for the pick up. I will be looking forward to your reply, once
again thank you and have a great week ahead.
(4) Hi ,
How is your day going? I want you to understand that the deal is on
as my secretary has posted the payment already, but there was a slight
error i guess we can handle with care, instead of the actual amount of
$550 for the item, she made out the check for $2,550. She claimed that
was what i requested but she didn't get that straight. So once you
have the check by tomorrow, please cash it and deduct the money for
your goods plus the $50 thats for removing the advert from the web as
promised and your run around expenses.
The excess funds should please be sent to my mover via money gram, this funds will be used in offsetting the cost of the shippment he as undertaken for me in recent times.
**Please email at once to let me know that i can trust you to have the
excess funds sent to my mover**
I hope to read back from you.
My Warmest Regards.
Yeah, the last one is the best, how about I just send you a couple of grand. Don't even bother sending the check. I guess I will see what arrives in the mail. Thanks for reading !!
Re: How does this sound to you?
its a fake check. they don't want or need the furniture, just you to moneygram cash back before your bank finds out the check is fraud.
Re: How does this sound to you?
I agree 100%, fake check scam. Notice how the person does not address you by name and does even mention furniture, just the word 'item'. He does not even know or care what he is 'buying'. He sends out responses by the hundreds to every *****s list ad he can find. His 4 emails to you are just 'stock scripts' he sends to everyone. His only objective is to get you to send him money via Western Union or moneygram.
If you get a check from him, shred it. Delete any emails from him, don't even bother to read them, it isn't worth the effort. If you get an email from the fbi @ gmail/yahoo/hotmail, etc ignore that, too. That would be him again, trying to scare you to send him money. If he calls, just let it go to voice mail. He will give up eventually.
