CL scammers are still trying... lol

Since I've had my 98GT for sale and listed on CL as well as here and a few other places its baffled me that after all this time and ALL the stuff on Craigslist that these scammers still try. Who the hell still falls for this ****?

Here's a great one I got tonight.

Hi,
You should consider it sold .Actually ,I am buying it for
someone and payment would be through PayPal . I am working in a ship
and presently, i am out to sea.So it is a pick up agent that would be
coming for the pick up.So i would like you to forward your Paypal
email add. and name with more pictures .
I would be expecting your prompt reply,with the name and the
email address on your PayPal account so that i could make the payment
asap and i will appreciate if you could send more pics as i would
not be seeing it in person and pick up should be at a designated
place or your residence.And, lastly , i am offering additional $ 100
to your final price for you to keep it off from other offers.


Like... really? I emailed him back that he should die in a fire but I don't know why I even waste my time. To anyone on here, if you see something like this and actually fall for it... I do not feel bad for you.

Don't even get me started on paypal/ebay. I will only use them to buy and refuse to sell anything on ebay or via paypal that is more than a few $hundred like you said. I learned the hard way to always use a CC when buying as well.

I'm to the point with them now where if I sell anything I always ask the buyer if they want to do a postal money order first. I wish more ppl used Google Wallet...

Friend of mine in college actually used the evilbay to get a thief/scammer arrested and charged. He had a Focus SVT that had the hood stolen off it. He started hitting CL/Ebay/every forum he knew super hard for a week and saw it for sale on ebay. So he put in a ridiculous bid to make sure he won it, contacted the officer who he filed the theft report with, set up a meeting point with the seller to pick up the hood and the popo showed up instead. One of the (sadly) few cases where the ******bag got what was coming to him.

I've had alot of those on Craigslist before but one time I posted my dads cj5 on there for him without price, I was waiting for him to give me the price
Like 5 mins after posting, I get an email from an actually guy saying he'd give me the whole dollar Craigslist puts on there if you don't put a price, I tld the guy to f^ck off, because before he said that he wanted all these extra pics of the jeep, and then he's like I didn't even want ur jeep, I just get on here to piss people off that have a dollar as their sale price

Like do people really not have a life?

Something like this actually happened not too long ago cause I'm selling my stock wheels... The guy said that he doesn't need to come look at the wheels, he is going to have movers come and get them and will be paying me by check, and will also add $30 to what I am asking to make sure I don't sell them to anyone else... I just deleted his message and never replied back.

They have one, it just sucks and they are miserable and that's their only way to get any joy in life at all.

Yeah that's the best thing. I told this guy to die in a fire but he probably gets that 100 times a day before the one moron actually falls for it. I seriously don't have any remorse for ppl who fall for this stuff, some guy on the Corral just paid like $1500 for a supercharger and got convinced to send the money as a gift. What a moron...

Lol reminds me of my brother. He was looking for a 94-95 cobra back in 2008 and a guy in California was "selling a mint 1995 cobra 27,000 miles on it for 4,000" he claimed he was in the military and it had to go because he was leaving on a 4 year tour. He wanted 4,000 mailed to him and he would promptly mail us the 95 cobra by air because he was In the military and gets free shipping. THAT'S RIGHT FREE CAR SHIPPING BY PLANE LOL. We dident fall for it but it was a good laugh. F$&* scammers. Also some Indian called my cell today saying I owed him $69.95 for the computer maintenance he DIDENT DO. I build computers on the side btw I don't need any help. So I told him where to go
