Thread: More Scammers to add to the list

    Angry More Scammers to add to the list

    I received 2 different messages from some idiots wanting to purchase an item I have for sale. Please add these phone numbers to the scammers list. (862)397-1857 & (661)468-9319. They both wanted to send checks even though my add said PayPal only. I sent the 2nd # just my address and he sent a bogus check for 3x the amount of the item. The bank verified the bogus check from "Credit Union Bank" in Riverdale, UT. I filed a police report and they took the check as evidence.

    I nearly fell for the same scam. He texted saying the check was for 3x my asking price plus a ridiculous shipping amount. Otherwise, I wouldn't have been suspicious. Same (661)-468-9319 phone number. I did a search for the phone number and this thread came up.

    i just had the same kind of text massage but with different numbers (980)-292-6560 --- (325)-268-2074 --- (971)- 599-1168 each number was 2 weeks apart but the same text content
    "Are you sure it neat and the condition is great? if yes pls provide me with your name and address to make a certified check to your mailing address and it will be out tomorrow. pick up arrangement will be made after check is confirmed and clear at your bank. thanks"
    i just replay back to them with a fake name and i lived at 123 dippedoda lane scammers Tx 00100 needless to say i havent heard back yet i choose Tx because the first # was from Texas

    also if you get far with them thay will send you a usps tracking number and then say you need to pick it up at the local post office and it will be there

    i hope this info will help so others can avoid them

    I also got one from BRCsinclair which I ignored sounded like a scam. I also got 2 text from different numbers saying his name was Benjamin Thompson. One said he was in Cali other one said he was in MS. Wanting to pay Paypal sight unseen and have a shipper pick up. Once I called him out on the 2 numbers he disappeared. 510-447-5343 & 363-742-2465 He tried to claim second number was his wife. Until I forwarded the one saying he was in MS. Then he was gone.
