Here's an email I just received. A tip off for me is that the email address they list in one part of the post is different than the one at the bottom of the email...one is yahoo, one is Gmail. The poor word usage and grammar are a tip off, too. These people really tick me off. When I get these I just ignore them once I realize what's going on. I got one on a job I applied for also, but luckily I didn't fall for it.Thanks for your efforts and web site!!
HERE'S THE SCAM EMAIL:
"Kent Devon" email@example.com
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 and I'm ready to pay your asking price.To be honest, i wanted to buy this for my father as a surprise birthday gift,he has being there for me and doesn,t deserve something less but the issue is I'm a marine contractor and i just got a contract which i am doing presently and
The contract is strictly no call, due to the lack of reception on the sea area,,But I'm able to access email anytime as we will make use of laptop so my only quickest
payment option is PayPal as i can send money via PayPal anytime.Moreso i choose paypal for this transaction cause i want to avoid the scams going down on the internet this days,and want the both party to be on a safe side cause paypal security measure is unbeatable.Since I'm requesting this transaction to be done via PayPal, i will be responsible for all the pay pal fee/charges on this transaction and if
you don't have an account with paypal, its pretty easy, safe and secured to open one. Just log on to www.paypal.com. 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 soon.
