The mirror is perfect where you put it—just beautiful! I posted your amazing story on my blog, which is dedicated to the best in Toronto craigslist furniture postings. May you enjoy your kingdom now even more. Jen June 30, 8: Too many more mirrors in our future!! Keira July 1, I nearly snorted out my morning coffee reading this post!
You are awesome, Victoria! I particularly loved your post on the many very high end design blogs out there. So funny, and so how I feel. Most of the blogs I follow are Scandinavian based because I feel like their spaces are more attainable and liveable.
Looking forward to reading more of your blog! Fantastic mirror by the way! Dianne March 13, 9: You are my mind doppelganger. I have had this same exact experience over Craigslist items with my other half.
You have described the murderous intent face exactly and my response to it. But the build up, and the thought process , and end result are all the same.
You are a kindred spirit! KarenAnita June 18, I absolutely love this post! Linley June 18, Melissa from the Blue House June 18, You find the best stuff!! Casey June 27, 5: Michawn June 28, Tracy June 18, Kim June 18, Good thing he never posted a photo of the mirror!
What a beautiful find! What a great husband you have too! Sarah June 18, Brynne June 18, Dear Victoria Elizabeth Barnes, You are officially now one of my favorite bloggers ever.
Your affection for Craigslist rivals my own, and I share your love for ornate, gorgeous, kingdom-y things. Shannon June 19, 2: I think he would be happiest if you lived in a cardboard box under a bridge.
Paul makes me sad. Maybe he needs counseling? I am pretty much certain he needs glitter therapy. Also, your mom is a great, supportive, loving creature full of joy for you and your Kingdom. As it should be. You know that Save-On-Crafts website? They sell German Glass Glitter by the pound. And it is wonderful. Maisy June 28, I totally agree with you Maisy. I kind of assumed Victoria knew I was mostly kidding about this.
If not, now she does. Kelley Hardison August 9, 9: Sarah Wolpert June 18, Laurel June 18, OK… So the real question that I have here besides my blinding jealousy over a mirror that a. AnnetM June 18, 1: Garden, Home and Party June 18, Actually, I now see the wisdom of these mirrors from craigslist…they are an investment and in your old age, before you move to the old folks home, you can sell them and have a well-funded retirement.
June 18, You are so funny! Eadie June 18, That mirror is beautiful and amazing. Curious- what were the final dimensions? Barnes, I enjoyed this post immensely and laughed deep in my stomach so many times. Thank you thank you! I have GOT to quit reading you at work. Thank you for existing. Bleubook June 18, I think I need to give you my contact info for your craigs list overflow. Tonya June 18, Molly March 1, Unless you did one and I missed it.
Jim June 18, 1: Stuart Richards April 14, Sue June 18, 1: I had to do a deep sigh when I got to the finish. What are you doing? You are making me want giant ornate mirrors. Not that I did not want a giant mirror before, but now you make it seem an essential! Melissa D-Z June 29, 1: We can peruse CL, while they speak quietly of their awe and love for us. Beth June 18, 1: This post is SO funny — you definitely have a gift for writing!
I cannot believe the things you find on Craigslist. That mirror is amazing — and it looks like it is was made to match to the one you have in your entry way, which is even more amazing! Annet M June 18, 1: Or to be exact, the ornate, gilded, giant and extremely heavy mirror count? June 18, 1: Carrie June 29, That to me would be a very difficult thing for a group of people to just steal. I mean can you picture a group of people getting away with it?
Then there is the fact that they kept it outside not worried someone might find it and know who stole it. Though the thought of a kingdom being stolen could start a whole new story. What sane person could resist that?? The mirror is gorgeous, a lovely match to the other one in your entry! Danielle June 18, 2: Anne Planting Sequoias June 18, 3: I now NEED a mirror with a kingdom on top, whatever that is!
Karen June 18, 3: Love, love, love this mirror and the fabulous price. Becky June 18, 3: Alex northstory June 18, 6: Ok if you ever come visit we have to go thrifting together. First of all let me just say what are you tricks for getting Paul to go with you? Marsha June 18, 6: Sarah June 18, 7: OMG I love it!! How can anyone not love this? Christine June 18, 7: You made me laugh out loud — your story is awesome, and glad you got the mirror you love!! Confession, technically, once or twice, I decided to change my mind and not do a project — after he convinced me -with much gesturing and colorful language — that the house WILL actually fall down if we do the project.
Thanks for adding laughs to our day!! Julie June 18, 8: What are you doing to me? And now you are making me want antique mirrors. Which would not go with anything I have, and my kids would destroy them. When I first saw the picture with the tarp?
You really know how to build up suspense. The mirror is gorgeous, and I love the way you placed it in your home. It makes the room look more spacious. It just looks fracking awesome on that wall.
I will be buying this for the price you have listed it for. Payment will be sent using PayPal and i will handle the PayPalsurcharge as well. I will arrange with a shipping company to have this picked up at your location once i have paid as i am out of town at themoment.
Am a marine engineer and due to the nature of my work, phone calls making are restricted,so you can send me your PayPal email account so that i can send the payment at once and its easy to sign upfor one just log on to http: Very odd that they want to purchase my vehicle sight unseen………. I was selling toddler toys and got a response from a guy whose email handle came through in my inbox as AA and who wanted me to call him immediately.
You ask too many questions. Thankfully I did a Google search and found this article before I gave him any information. I received a few emails from nichojohn gmail. Here is what he sent me:.
Hello, I got 8 Pentium IV dell laptops. Below are the things needed to be done one on each laptops. Get back to me with your total cost for the services of 8 Laptops. Then, after my response, I got this email: I have all the necessary software needed for the service installations…. I am very sorry for the late in response and i am okay with the price i have all the necessary software needed for the service installations….
Also funny that he uses the same stupid form letter used by the same stupid scammers time and time again….
Please send the check to: When you have noted that the check has arrived, let me know right away. Something i realized that may help others is that the scammer i encountered yesterday and today used the same name with each message but a different email and the only way to realize this is to scroll over his name which is uncommon to do in each diff.
You can also see this because instead of the email getting longer and longer with each reply, it starts over each time. Thanks for the swift response to my mail,I am highly elated with your advert,Hence it is still available. I will send a bank check Check via UPS next day delivery. I'll be responsible for the pick-up and the pick up money will be included in your payment to avoid delay and to enable pick up company to schedule an appropriate time for he pick-up at your location after check has been cashed,as i have other properties to be moved alongside with yours.
I would have really love to come for the viewing but due to my work frame that might not be possible,but if you have the pics,might want to have a good look. Please do get back to me with your full name and address including your cell and land number so i can make out payment. I'm so glad i did read it though. I wrote him a followup message stating i received another offer cash and that i feel more comfortable with that transaction.
Also, that anything sent to me will be mailed back immediately. My son and husband have been listing items on CList and I can not convince them that I believe the following is a scam….
As promised, the check finally left origin yesterday and should get to you today unfailingly by USPS Express Mail Delivery with the shipping funds included. EO US you can track online using the link below so you can make yourself available at time of delivery. So get back to me with the following information on the Western Union receipt. I was able to at least convince them to have check sent to different address then our home and item is stored elsewhere.
I had the check sent to my office. I asked the sender to call me at my office…. I looked up the school my school is in NY online and sent a copy of the check to the school to see if they had issued it.
A nearby city had counterfeit 20s showing up at stores. Turns out they were some reports of passing some on Craigslist, not huge ticket items like cars but electronics etc. They would meet in person, give you cash and of course, no ID was needed for it. Some guy who sells on CL a lot had a great idea that he posted. He said he meets the buyer in a favorite neighborhood bar and gets his bartender friend to check the bills.
Just telling buyers to expect this has actually lost him two deals. If anything sounds funny to you, it might pay to have someone who handles money a lot check the bills, or get the pen and read up on the security items embedded in bills. Here is something I feel is suspicious and worth tell you about. I advertised an old Korg analogue synth and an obsolete 4-track cassette. The 4-track might be OK for spares and the Korg for musicians wanting an 80s retro sound.
I got two replies from the same person who asked about both things. He replied to each ad with the following: Your kind gesture will be so much appreciated. The message lacked any interest in precise details of either device. Looked very fishy to me. I notice that these scammers are after expensive items. I felt a funny feeling inside when I received their upbeat email.
I typed in craigslist scams to see if there were any like it, and there were dozens with the same wording as mine. Watch out and try to sell locally. I have used both CL and Ebay to sell things with some success. Luckily, I have not been a victim of them. I typically ignore the ones I think are scammers. However, this morning I received an email, and then I replied to it, and then got another email from someone else. I looked up scams on CL and found this site. Really great to see that others are trying to help one another identify the scammers.
I now feel like writing back that I know he is scamming and I will report him. March 14, 3: Let me know if you would like to see them. March 14, 8: Hello My assistant told me that you still have the item 4 sale,I will pay your asking price. I will likely make payment by check or money order as its the only way I can pay you at the moment I am actually out of the States on a business trip. I will make arrangement for pick-up after payment has been received by you.
Kindly reply with your full name,cell phone number,and address where payment should be sent,i will appreciate if you can get the ad off craigslist so i can be sure you are keeping it in my favor. I just read every single one of these letters… nice to know I am not the only target. As I am trying to sell off my jewels for medical payments… my posts seem to have attracted every crook in the book. I checked it out for myself after one of those replies.
HELLO… are you really going to tell someone when your not going to be at home after you have given them your address?
I did learn something new and just in the nick of time… please repeat the post about CASH… never thought about cash being an issue.. Now I know to meet buyers at the bank. Thank you, thank you very much for your energy to keep us informed.
God Luck everyone with your sales… and trust your gut on each response. So I posted a job resume on cl yesterday. The post was about looking for horse related jobs. I have received over 10 responses and NONE of then are for horse jobs! The guys name is carton roger, he also gave me him professsion, name, age, and where he lived.
The other one is for house is for house cleaning, I told him I had a friend who happens to clean houses and he asked if she was staying with and if she was my best friend. Also wanted to play for 3 days aweek for 3 hours a day. His name is Richard Thomas. I really think theses are too good to be true, if someone has heard of these before or has any advice plz help. I am a single mother with 2 kids And I am needing work badly.
I will never think of taking some kinda advantage over you and please take that out of your mind that is an awful thing to think about. Please understand me better. I currently have an item on CL, and I notice that when i replied to an inquiry it was sent to a different email address. The initial inquiring email seemed legit, hence the reason why I replied.
When I did not hear back from the person I check to see if the email was sent, and notice it was sent to a different address. Has anyone had this problem, is it normal, or is this a sure sign of a scam. Thanks for your prompt response and i have decided and concluded to buy the item from you. I am OK with the cost. I will be needing the following information to issue out the payment.. Not P o Box Address: I also have some other goods i already bought in other location which my mover will pick up all together.
Please note that the payment will be delivered to your address and I will also wait for the funds to cleared in your bank account before my mover come for the pickup of the item and i am still waiting for your response now.!
Luckily I am moving, but am curious, did he ever do anything with the info you gave him? Hello everybody i have received about 3 emails now and need some help determining if it is indeed a scam or not.
I have one other person asking about it if he doesnt want it or you give a better offer its all yours. You don,t need to bother your self with the shipment ok,I will take care of that myself…. So I will need you to provide me with the following information to facilitate the mailing of the payment…. Your physical mailing address………….
Your phone number…………… 4. Have a nice day.. Can anyone determine if this is a scam or not based on the information i have provided and what is the worst thing that can happend if this does turn out to be a scam and this person now has my name and address?
And the idiot does not even know computers have not been around for 50 yrs-must be young. Can I give you an address in Arizona to mail it too? I volunteer for needy people and the people in AZ are a family that just got a computer in 50 years! Eastern Daylight Time, aol. Please send me the money and your address and I will mail immediately.
Eastern Daylight Time, ol. Do you want to send me a check? I just sold my tanning salons in Manhasset and Port washington I live in Westchester. I gather you are not local. Not used much-has ink, cables and all paperwork. I was given another multi machine by work I have a home office. I kept it for a while and we almost never use it. So it is now on Craigslist. New scam I came across at 12;34 pm yesterday.
I received more emails today rom different display names, same ending, offering to trade some of the same items. Any way I take the time to post this so at least this stupid scammer needs to make another fake email.
Best Regards ——- Suposed name: Do you still have this item for sell, what is the precent condition, let me know if you are the right owner and i will be happy to see more picture if you got them.
Thanks for the prompt response.. I am ready to buy it now as a birthday gift for my Dad. Also,am OK with the condition of the furniture and the price given. I have a pick up agent that will come and pick the furniture up after i have make the payment.
I would be glad if my request is favorably considered. Get back to me asap. Started off with using my personal email account, but after so many BS attempts from spammers, scammers and email address collectors. I decided to turn the tables on them and opened up several gmail and yahoo accounts that are dedicated to my CL posts only. I have copied and pasted only a few of their email addresses below. One other thing… The use of Google to track down these scammers has worked for me on a number of occasions.
I had entered the posters email address into google and was directed to a high school PTA minutes log and found out that the scamster-ette had used both of her email accounts in the log. Got contacted by text via yahoo. Said he would have his shipping agent pick it up. Why do so many scammers use Michael Parker as an alias? Sadly it is the free thing that makes it such a big target, that and its so easy to post on craigslist.
It seems like I see a scam every time I go through their classifieds now a days. Its sad that such free services are taken advantage of like that. However dealing with scams is likely going to continue to be the price we pay to be able to post and use craigslist for free. Can someone tell me why scammers, who respond to YOUR ad, give a real local phone number for you to call?
Do they somehow get into your phone system and use it for overseas calls? My husband has a Harley for sale. The day after posting the ad; we got a similar e-mail from an Anthony Crooks. His name was a dead giveaway that it was a scam. Poor grammar, and wanted to quickly pay for the motorcycle sight unseen through Google.
He wanted my PP ID, home address, and phone number. I responded, and said I do not do business electronically, only locally. Explained that there were documents to be signed to transfer a vehicle. He said the mover would take care of that. We are selling a boat on CL in PA. We have been conversating with a woman from NY. Also wanted for us to sign the titles without notary. Also stated if we wanted to talk about scams we to think that she is buying something from CL.
We said yes but you can see the boat with your own eyes and have the choice to take it or not just as we have the choice to accept the check. She is yet to reply!! I believe more people get scammed than pulled over on a highway to get robbed when no one knows you have that cash!?!
Is this a new approach for scammers? I received a response from an individual using the name Michael Cosmos. I was given the break down on what the job duties would involve in the first email. It was explained that he would provide a rental car for me to use for his mothers transportation.
A second check for the same amount was sent to me when it was explained that the moving company for the car was asking for an additional fee. Today I am struggling to recover as I have been unemployed for 5 months now and have no way to accommodate these funds back into my account. Although this scam had all the signs listed on this site, I was unaware of this sort of crime prior to experiencing it first hand. The worst part is that I have consulted with the local police department, a lawyer and even contacted the postal service to share and obtain as much information as possible to battle this issue but there seems to be no progress, and I have been insulted and treaty as though I deserved what has happened to me.
Yep same thing… The level or depravity to rip someone off who is selling something is one thing but to victimize a person needing a job is is evil on a whole new level… I luckily smelled a scam when he said he was in Clyde Texas on Oil Rig as an Engineer. I do hope you are a serious applicant regarding this position, I am looking forward to having a good working reference with you at the end.
She lives in Edited , and she really needs a driver that would be driving her around the city to get various items, Doctor Appointments and other appointments. I have been busy with work. I will like to let you know that this is a permanent job, it could also be temporal depending on your schedule. You are required to be dependable, dedicated, honest, loyal and trustworthy.
I am willing to provide a Toyota Camry car if you do not have your personal car. It will be greatly appreciated if you accept this offer. I will look forward to having a better service from you. Kindly get back with the information below: Residential Address in full: I recently posted ad on CL for a table, very same day I get email from dude saying he likes the table and he wants to buy it. He sent me this Bogus Email according to him was coming from Pay Pal. I started doubting when I tried to replay the Email failed.
I told myself just for fun I am going to play along. I told him Sure I will send the money first thing in the morning. He mail me again that he was getting fed up that I have not send the money yet and his money was sitting in Pay Pal Account.. I responded you are fed up because you are nothing but fraud, you really thought I was going to send money? Never seen other email from him, but few more tried I did have time to play I just tell them right away that they are fraud and most people can detect yopur BS from Miles away..
We recently posted a car for sale on Craiglist — and knew right off when the scam texts started coming — who the heck buys a car in WY when they live on the East Coast!! We received texts messages from be sure to Google this number and read about this person — also from I just sold a dirt bike to as guy who came out and paid cash. He did not take the bike yet, but has the title. He said he is shipping the bike to Russia. I am knda freaked out but the deal is in cash.
But be on the lookout for: Email is valid and he is out there offering cashiers checks for your merchandise. Here is the email I got from him. Hello, Thanks for the response. I am willing to pay your asking price. I will pay by money order as its the only way i can pay you at the moment.
I will make arrangement for the pick-up immediately after payment have been received by you. Please reply with your full names,cell phone number,and address where payment should be sent. Please take the posting off craigslist today and consider it sold to me. I got 3 others, that of course offered to pay via PayPal which we have all seen time and time again. Dang, I wish we could stop this crap. Craigslist has suffered from quite a lot of scams in the recent days which is not a good thing at all.
Such incidents make people skeptical. Why email saying how much is the product? Is that just to see if you will respond so that they know who they can get their foot in the door with to scam? As opposed to saying I want it, send it to me. January 14, , 1: Hi there, Thank you for getting back to me. Can you assure me that the vehicle is in good state and that i will not be disappointed with it. The contract is strictly no call due to the lack of reception on the sea area. Just log on to http: I hope we can make the purchase as fast as possible?
I have a mover that will come for it once payment clears and they will be handling the title for me. So i look forward to hear from you. Well practically the whole message is identical. It is a scam all the way and I would like to get ahold of those people. Also, learn to spell, so you can adequately scam people. Just found a scam in my inbox today. I will not fall for this one again! I know it is a scam as it is coming from the same exact email it did last year.
I am a single mother with almost no money at all and now I am stuck paying the bank back bc of this jerk! My name is Joseph Mccarthy and my wife name is Anna, we are in the process of relocating to your city and we need someone who can help my wife with some of the house hold chores, running some errands when necessary and in taking care of our daughters Maggie and Clara as if they were yours Mondays through Fridays. Let me intimate you more about our precious daughters.
Our daughters have no allergies and they like playing around with puppies and cats, loves interacting with other kids as well as watching cartoons and i think you would love to have them around as they are very playful and fun loving. However, i believe Kids should read books and limited TV and electronic entertainment, perhaps you could help out in ensuring a very conducive atmosphere for learning. Myself and my wife are journalists by profession but we both work on shifts. They are not allergic to any food but dusty, Sarah loves taking snacks a lot while Cindy loves ice cream vanilla flavor.
Well that is all i can tell you about them for now. If you accept our offer, my financier would be needing your address to mail out the check. Kindly get back to me asap with the information below required for confirmation and further proceedings to take place:. We would be arriving on the 28th of Feb but you will be paid upfront, as i will have several small assignments for you to complete prior to our arrival, such as checking our new apartment for necessary supplies, purchasing what may be needed before our arrival, Necessary toiletries and cleaning supplies etc which i will provide you with a list.
All we ask from you is honesty and sincerity and am sure you will enjoy the time you will spend with my Daughters. Kindly get in touch on time so that we can start making arrangements while i await your swift response regards this employment offer and the requested details. Yes, do not respond to the e-mails that look fishy. The e-mails that are general in response and just say: I do not know how they got my account information through my e-mail.
Also, you will get hundreds of spam e-mails per day. Block all you suspect are fishy and look like spam or scam. Do not reply and do not provide any of your personal information. I wish Craigslist made everyone regiter and kept track of the users. The same guy is contacting me now about a ad I just put on CL today. Almost word for word! Thx for the warning. I am relocating to the area from Hawaii.
Someone that will also help in running some errands. I believe you will be fit for this position in as much you will prove yourself to be a reliable and good person. I have a financier that is based in the states and he will be handling the payment and some other expenses, so he will be the one that will be taking care of your the payment, I will instruct him to pay for the first week before our arrival so as to secure your service, actually i should have paid for more weeks but i will extend the payment if am satisfied with your service after the first week.
Actually all flights from the City from hawaii arrives at nights so you will be getting the foodstuff in the morning and making all other preparations. I will also instruct my estate agent to mail the keys of the apartment to you so that you can do all other necessary preparations before we arrive,I will also email you the shopping list. All i need from you is total honesty and sincerity. I know you will be committed to the work, You will also have a nice period of working with me.
I will be waiting to hear from you. Thanks for your concern. I had a person attempt of scamming me today. Recently I created an ad selling my console with accessories and games. I finally got an offer or at least someone who attempted to contact me today. Like most of you the grammar was absolutely horrible in a funny way. It was similar to the posts you see online by foreign people trying to write in the English language.
The phone number was not from my local area. I searched the phone area code and found out it was from somewhere in Ohio. While at it I googled his whole phone number.
After this I replied that it was still available. It took them about four hours to give me a reply. I answered all his questions. Then the buyer asked what my final price was, and if I had a paypal. I told him my final price and also told him that I knew he was a scammer. I actually found this incident amusing instead of becoming angry. So get back to me with below details to be on the check asap.
And as soon as this is provided, the payment will be overnight to you and i will let you know when its mailed out. I am selling a dresser and this is the exact same scam I was hit with. Does running a blog similar to this require a lot of work? I have absolutely no knowledge of computer programming however I had been hoping to start my own blog in the near future.
Anyhow, should you have any suggestions or techniques for new blog owners please share. I know this is off topic but I simply needed to ask. I seriously considered falling for this scam. Thank you so much for starting this posting.
You did a good thing. I got two people trying to scam me for one laptop I had posted. Mark Jones — and Tim Brooks — Thanks to research on the internet and these posts, I have avoided a similar scam. They said they were out to sea working as an oceanographer and wanted to buy for wife.
The grammar and spelling in the texts were horrible. All of the texts were also out of order. I had to scroll around and piece them together so they would make sense. I had scammers send me there bogus cashiers check times, I told them the dog ate it or it flew out the window of the car, on the way to deposit it. Somebody tell me, please, how can scam take advantage of having my paypal ID e-mail? I bought this today and am worried what passwords or what else do I need to change?
My Name is Lawrence Clark. I graduated last year. Waiting for your e-mail with the information requested so that i can forward it to my Dad to issue out the check for the deposit and month rent with that you can hold on the place for me till i come soon… Thanks. I really appreciate that you are ready to accept in, pls have little patience for the check to be delivered to your address and also pls secure the room prior my arrival.
Thanks so much for your understanding. I am seeking a room that has an attached bathroom and is furnished. I work and go to school. I am a professional Female who does not smoke or drink and is seeking a like environment. I am a runner and mountain biker who is respectful and quiet and am seek the same. His initial email to me was harmless and fairly legit in my eyes, telling me he was at CVS near me and would be done somewhere between minutes,, then would like to come see the car and if he liked it, was prepared to pay cash.
I guess the first red flag should have been the time in CVS. I mean, who spends that much time in CVS? Anyway, I ended up seeing his email about an hour after he sent it so I emailed back with an apology for not getting to it in time. Then he replied with this:. This is my number I was super iffy after that and did a Google search of the name, email, and phone number. Can you guess his answer? I bet you can! PayPal and a moving company!
Lol I almost want to respond to his email with a link to this website. I googled his name and found this!! So thank you for posting!! Google is a powerful research tool! I hope this guy gets caught and thrown in jail! See the message below. I appreciate your concerns about payment and would like to arrange the safe sale of my vehicle to you. I would also like to know your last name and address so I know where to send the bill of sale and title once payment is received.
There is a period of time this afternoon that I will not be available 2: Thu, March 17, 8: Thanks for understanding and your business. This was a scam I just received after posting an item.
Initially they texted to ask if we still had the china cabinet, and they listed the price. Nothing was listed in our add concerning the condition, they never asked about it, and I never mentioned it.
Thanks for this information. I just posted a vehicle on Craigslist yesterday and the scams are already coming. I received a email missing the information mentioned in this article from a gmail account that was actually mentioned in the comments. He did use the same exact name again: Mark Blareley On Mon, Mar 14, at 8: Thanks for the response!
I almost got duped twice. Then I would have to send the extra money to the person coming to pick up the furniture through moneygram. I was just drafting this. An attention-grabbing discussion is worth comment. Wow its been years since this happen to me but for the sake of good memories i will just go ahead and say what i want to say. I was just browsing through the internet and i saw a couple of comments made by a United state woman called Deborah and other people about Wema S Sundars and how she helped them solve their financial problems by granting them loans to be financially free from debts and to pay there bills.
There is no reliable loan lender as real as Wema loans. This is just a short note of my testimony, The full story about the reliability of this loan firm i am talking about is on other website that accept long detailed testimony. Also i will be using my identity card to post this testimony to let you all know that i am serious about all i have said.
All out there that need a real loan lender that will not rip you off your hard earned money, Contact Mrs Wema and get your loan. This loan firm have the aids of FBI to help them out do so many investigations. I am currently looking for a cheap motorcycle. The first ad I answered was really cheap. They answered me back that they are currently at work and will contact me later. When they do, they say if the price is okay they will send me more pics of the bike, which they do.
I ask for a meeting and get a long story about how her husband just died and she is selling it so cheap because it reminds her of him. She says that she has an account with Google wallet and the bike will be sent to me when I pay Google wallet, and I get a five day grace period.
Theresa Mason was the first person and Sgt Wiles was the second. As soon as the payment clears i have a mover that would come over to pick it up.. I can spot them a mile away and I will tell them so. I am advertising a junk car on Craigslist and received an email from someone interested in it, a female no less. She wanted to talk to me about the car, so i gave her my phone number. A few days later I received a call from a woman about auto insurance and she began asking questions about my address, email account, type of insurance, etc.
The back ground noise was reminiscent of a telemarketing room. After about the 5th question I hung up. The number on my caller ID was For me is my area code.
