I posted something for sale in craigslist and some scammer really are very presistent that they think all people will fall for their scam. So I played along with him/her and let her/hin spend $20.00 for shipping the check of $980.00 (take note that the item is only $350.00) and check will be deposited in the bank and send the $630.00 to the "SHIPPER". whew!!! the last time we post something for sale for about $550.00 we recieved a 4 of checks (3000.00, 2500.00, 3500.00 and 2000.00) all wast sent overnight UPS or FedEX.

So Funny!!! I had this happen to me when I was selling my Acura, seems all the phonies came out trying to pass of this scam, little did they know I read all about the do's and don't's for selling on the site. I just kept saying sure I'll take your check but you don't get the car until it's cashed and I have my money, funny how I never heard back from any of them. I finally did sell the car to a guy in Buffalo who came to our town in Carthage and looked at it and paid cash. Never fall for the trick of deposit my check, mail it send it what ever they choose for you to do and then have to send them money back. I tried to find what you said but it didn't work for me. Kudoos to you!!!!!!!!

Maybe if enough of these scammers get scammed back, they'll quit trying to dupe people out of their money!

Oh she or he is not yet done. until I've been playing with him/her. told her that i went to western union and use my debit card but there is no money in my card yet and that maybe the check has not yet cleared and the item (big oak round table) needed to be gone (yesterday) as what my old land lord told me or I will pay 200.00 for 2 days and that her/his shipper needs to pick it up sooner. LOL I am trying to "scamming" him for his so called money until there is no more left and maybe she/he will send me another check? LOL!!!!
