    Newyorkin had a post on this just the other day. Sounds like they are targeting electronics. I think Ratch led the guy on pretty good as a punishment IIRC.

    They target everything. and they must 1) actually get enough bites to keep them at it and 2) stay very, very busy "reading" ads. i always e-mail them back several times just to give them something to do. Takes me only a second and can be fun.

    Post their e-mail address and I will just randomly e-mail them. :D Or better yet, everybody e-mail them. :D

    They send you a fake check, but if's for over the amount you are selling your item for. They want you too pay the shipping and western union them back the difference. Tell them you only accept Western Union payments from over seas customers.

    hell yeah, that would be great and all.,.

    but only if you could actually get them to send real cashable funds..

    is there really anything wrong about taking keeping funds from nigerian scammers ?

    im not thinking there is..

    it sure would be very amusing reading the emails of the scammer once he figured out that the tables were turned on him though :D :haha: :D

    good luck..
