Craigslist Fraud Seller


I replied to a posting on Craigslist KNOWING it was a scam just so I could post the reply here for you guys to see. First of all you cannot buy a Macbook Pro that has nothing wrong with it for $495!! Second, this crook is not in the US which is one of the first things that should tell you it's a scam. Third they're always so generous and want to pay for the shipping themselves. Here it is:


Hello

I still have the laptop.
I have attached some pics with the laptop to this e-mail. I am now in Wolverhampton, United Kingdom.
Since I can't meet you and make the exchange, I would like to use a service that will help us with that:

www.tnt.com/tnt.express.wolverhampton.depot.overseas.transactions/details.html

TNT is a worldwide delivery company (like Fedex, DHL or UPS). You can see from their procedure that you will be able to check the laptop before I receive the payment. If you are in a hurry, I will use 2 day delivery (shipping is on me).

Let me know what you think.

Thanks,
Susan

Thanks for this post, Josh. Scam is really all around. Everybody, please be careful. It always makes me sad to know somebody was scammed.

Funny that you should show this one. Looks identical to one that I received for a tv. I started to notice that things were fishy when they said that they had left. I'm pretty sure it was the same person because Susan is the name of the person, and the link and everything were exactly the same. There really are scammers out there, just be cautious
