So I've got a dining room set for sale on Craig's List. And I've read some pretty interesting scam emails from otheres here on BCSB, but this one scammer just will not go away (I have been teasing him for more than a week now). Assurances from him he will pay me my asking price, confirmation he is sending $1800 to my paypal account, emails from fake paypal addresses advising me that the money had been sent. There's literally been 20 or so emails over the past week.
But this last one, it's just too funny not to share:
I have just contact PayPal now to make a report against you since you have not get back to me with a positive response toward the transaction,because i believe i have explained my self to you before i enter in to this and before i make the payment to your paypal account that you gave to me,but unfortunately you have turn down on me by not reposing to me again...I told you that i am adding the shipping fund to the payment that i am sending to you and you agreed to do that for me by sending the shipping money back to my agent,but by now you have not do that since when i make the payment not to talk of the shipping process and the pick up time and date that need to be schedule by my shipper and you ...I have sit down very well and tell this to my lawyer,i was told that you wanted to scam me and i have file a complain against you as i have reported this to the PayPal authority and also i have report to the FBI as PayPal also told me that they will do the report file and send it to the FBI with your information that you use to register with them for the FBI to best locates you and make an arrest for scamming....I understand that you have not get the money in your account,but as you can know that i have put all trust in you before i could say that i will do business with you with not seeing you at all and i send that much of money to you,but you have turn me upside down and let me know that you happen to be a scammer...And if not PayPal that put a hold on the money until you send the pick up agent fund that i added to the payment i believe that you will run away with my money if they should give that to you first upfront..But since they have told me that they will not credit the money back into my account since i have make the transaction to you and they have deduct all the charges from me...So you are to hold responsible since you are not trustworthy...You are a thief.
Any suggestions for a creative response? I'm coming up empty...........
