Classified Ads Scam
| 18.104.22.168 |
Someone sent me an sms showing interest on some of my items and asking to contact him(?) by e-mail:- firstname.lastname@example.org
After exchanging some e-mails, he proved to be interested in 9 items and wanted to buy them, offering even more money than I had requested.
FIRST MISTAKE - no one buys more expensive than it\'s requested!
Then he asked for my Paypal account in order to make the payment immediatly, leaving the delivery arrangements for later.
SECOND MISTAKE - no one pays in advance without some kind of insurance!
I decided to track his e-mail IP and got this - 22.214.171.124 - used many times for several type of internet scams.
BE CAREFUL. Don\'t give up your personal information without being sure you\'re dealing with decent people like you. And remember, a good business rarely or never is easy.
