    Nigerian scammers going to shit?

    So this obvious bullshiter responded to me about an ad I have on Craigslist:

    He emailed me saying he wanted to pay an extra $50 to insure I would keep it for him?! Then he texted me in his almost real english:

    When I asked for his address, he went silent. My question is, how is he making money on this deal? Last month I bagged a dirtbag who was listing my cabin and soliciting rentals until someone contacted me. Is Craigslist the new home for all ex cons? WTF?!

    Karma for all the overpriced painting bids over the years.

    I would guess that it would most likely be the "Oops, I overpaid/purchase fell through, can you send back the money?" then the check is reported bad/fraudulent and the money is taken from your account.

    That makes sense, thanks. Just amazed they play this at this scale.


    Twodogs, you are probably right, too. Just submitted one for $750k and another for $350k last week. But that's with a $100M budget.

    Whatev. Hooked up a maggot you tried to rape, as evidenced by your prices. No paint job should go for that. That's just obscene. Have fun in the big time though.

    I always love the craigslist posters who insist, usualy with some exclamation points "No Scammers!!!!" As if the nigerians were just looking for someone to scam but then they thought "Oh, damn, he said scammers can't call him, guess we have to find someone else."

    They sometimes send the funds, fraudulent check that is accepted, but eventually bounces or is on a stolen/fraudulent check from someone else's account. Sometimes they later state they can't complete the pick-up and ask for the money back before the check is ultimately rejected and funds pulled from your account.

    Weird thing is, he had a Vermont number and was obviously texting me. Used the name Fred Herman of which there are none in VT.

    I'd love to f with him a bit... Keep him busy and out of circulation. Do I text back and say he can have it for free?... No money, no score for him, but he'd have to explain why he doesn't want it. I'd love to just get rid of it.

    So I texted him back saying he could have it for a case of Heady. I'm sure he'll jump at that...

    This thread is gold! You should definitely get involved with the crew over at http://www.419eater.com/

    Those guys get downright cruel, sending them on dangerous journeys or making them post degrading pics. Funny stuff, though. There are some seriously epic tales on that site.
