its on the way! and i sent $800 so make it 2....thanks for the info.
Yea this dude tried to scam me yesterday on a set of 51 merc skirts, hmmm, no pictures? No Paypal and you're in europe? Yea... About that...
Take your pic
Tell him to send the parts c.o.d. and after you recieve the parts you will send him a check for 2,000 dollars more than the asking price, just out of kindness.......
Traced to Nigeria and jfld27 has been banned
Always use paypal
W C Fields said never trust a man with two first names!
This guy just dont give up! Everytime you guys mention him being Nigerian I think of a comedy show on channel 4 over here called PhoneJacker/FaceJacker and the character George who is always asking people to wire him "the monies".
This Guys a joke and its good to see that Ryan is blocking him but we all know... he'll be back
Yeah and the probably don't have any way of toasting the bread either
Pfffttt.... Bernzomatic torch does it every time.
I posted a couple of ads wanted and got two responses from Europe.
Herbert Lorenzo <firstname.lastname@example.org> in Madrid Spain was first and
Vincent Webb <email@example.com> UK was second. Vincent sent a couple of follow ups.
My reply was:
My shipping address is 4821 Eskimo Pie Rd, Otterbreath, Alaska 99981. I have a check from a lawyer in Nairobi from an uncles estate. I can have that put in your account and you. can send me the balance along with the parts. Please send me your bank information so I can get the paperwork started.
Thanks so much.
I'll let you know when I get his bank information ;<)

I got the above message...it is a scam
He may have changed tactic. He now emails direct without going through the board. His email is -firstname.lastname@example.org I hope he starts getting JUNK emails because I included his email address here.
Paypal is not so safe a bet unless you buy on ebay. They only will take a claim if less than 45 days old and only for parts from a known vendor. Just went through this with paypal and they would do nothing
It seems asking for particular extra pics is a good first move if you are buying, and suspicious,.........who doesn't own a pocket camera these days? Pics, or it ain't in your possesion.
I'd like to see someone bait this fucker..
send him some money with a die pack, or something with a GPS tracker..then pounce on the bitch.
They are at it again - i have three people reach out to me in response to my parts wanted ad.
All in the UK, all promising they had the parts i wanted. Their email had a direct cut and paste of my ad list on here. I checked the IDs and they are newbies with no posts.
I got scammed by this asshat about a month ago his name then was Andy383 or something
Got me for 300 for some carbs
His English was ok. ( better then the other Nigerian scanner emails I have seen anyways )
And he seemed to know what he was talking about when I asked about the carbs
Like I said got me for 300 then wanted another 90 for shipping from nigeria !!!
That's when my stupid alarm went off and I knew my cash and my dignity were gone.
Can't beleave this guy is this brazen to keep this up.
Look at us now we are saying to not post want add anymore for fear of being taken
Some one needs to find this guy
G'day, I have some stuff for sale on local Craigslist. I have been getting e-mails rather than phone calls on stuff and the names look like ones used in Nigerian money scams. The grammer and punctuation used is poor and they want my info so they can mail a check. No mention on how or where the parts would be shipped.
I also have a recent wanted ad on the Hamb that has generated response from the UK. Incredibly low price including shipping. New Hamber added a day before my ad...hmmm. Should I forward to Ryan?
wonder how much this guy/these guys have stolen from HAMB members?
probably making more money than I am. people just don't think. the internet has been around for a while now, yet people still send money away to thieves.
I signed up Mr. "Ken Autor" for some get rich fast sites, since he seems to be in that sorta business. Also, hope he likes porn sites and male enhancement along with free laptops. This man better get a good spam filter!
jc81 just tried to get me for $160.
Alert:::::::: Do not purchase anything from a guy in Oklahoma named Sonny Mac, Sonny Mac Industries, Sonny Mac Hot Rod Company or any other business accoiated with Sonny Mac. I've heard that he may be moving to Texas, Tenn. or Mich. I think hes run out of people in Okla/Tex/ Ark. to scam.
I wonder if you've pissed him off enough that his latest name deliberately resembles yours ? !!
I got this response to my wanted advert today . ( note - brand new member , nothing in his profile , no intro and wants me to reply by email )
