Hey guys, My name is Frank and I work in the Finance Dept at a Used Car Dealer in Houston Texas, USA: I responded the the exact same message, but the the second one got a little too supecious. LOL

This e-mail came from: jrk_autos@keromail.com. from a Mr. Jill Rook. I checked the web site the e-mail is based on and it's a Hello Kitty e-mail, and I ask my self, what kind of grown man would conduct business from Hello Kitty E-mail? I went to Google.com and typed the phone number he/she is listing and this web page came up, with all this helpful information. Thanks for everything guys.

Hello Frank,

Thanks for the mail back and for your understanding. I appreciate it all from you and need you to know that i am much okay with all you have said concenring the car and also would like you to know that business is based on trust as i can not view or inspect the car before purchase because i am currently in u.k so therefore would be sending my shipper to come for the pick-up of the car at yoiur location as soon as payment has been made out to you. I have a client in the state that is owing me the total sum of $8,000 and i have contacted him to make out the payment to you for the car and for the shipping fee and he has agreed to do so. So pls i would like you to provide me with your full name and address and also your phone number so i can forward it to my client to remitte the check to you on my behalf. I have seen the car and i like it and ready to make the purchase asap for my son Junior as his b-day is coming up in 2 weeks time. As soon as the check gets to you, i need you to get it cashed at the cashing center or your bank and have them deduct the charges for cashing it for you and deduct the cost for your car which is $4350 and do me a favour by sending the rest of the balance $3,650 to my shipping company via westernunion money tarsnefr so they can come for the pick-up of the car as soon as possible. If this is okay by you, i need you to provide me with your details as requested so payment can be made out to you asap. Waiting for your mail back and pls keep other buyers away from the car. My greetings to your lovely family.

Mr Jill Rook.

Hi just found your site very nice smile.gif
I have been getting tons of this kind of scamm and some new kinds lately as
well they say basic same thing in new ones that ship item then give tracking
number to either a service they claim to use or to USPS and really is nothing
but scamms to anyone that sells items online NEVER ever send any item
without first waiting for funds they payed you with to clear and i mean even
paypal i have had peeps pay my paypal and ends up was an account they
the Fake buyer stole and payed with but because i wait was not a problem
when real owner disputed claim i just immediatly gave a 100 percent refund
because i never sent item out in mail yet BIGGEST thing about selling is no
matter what way they the buyer pays wait plenty of time before you mail the
item wait plenty of time before you mail item out again wait plenty of time
before you mail item out and make sure you never mail anything until you
have payment in full and in your hand in your hand in your hand because
just because is in your account whether be bank or some service like paypal
they the bank or the service like paypal can reverse the money it happens
be carefull make sure money is in hand period.
check this one out it all started from some so-called girl in russia her story to
me hi i'm trina hayes and my dad died and i need some person in usa to help
get my 4.5 million out of a trust he put it in until i was 28 and now i'm 28 help me

Well, I searched, if this guy is around, it's not under this identity. Post here ONLY scammers using MacMusic or 440Forums PM or secure email (they don't have your email until you answer), or classifieds, and if available, give us their login here. I won't details the tools I use for obvious reasons but I need some material to work on… and sometimes I fail…

Scammers are banned on the spot by either me or Babaille, in charge of the classifieds.

I too have met up with these same scammers on a different audio classifieds webpage. (They wouldn't even mention the scammer problem on their website, so I don't intend to publicize them here!)

Nevertheless, the names of the two scammers who contacted me were Noble Store and Peter Wreth. Both claimed to be from England. Store wanted me to ship $100 worth of audio tape to Nigeria for $9000 (!) and Peter wanted to send me $2000 and then have me give $1800 to his "agent", who would pick up the tape at my house.

Peter Wreth's email is < aidanbutler08@hotmail.com > and Noble Store's is < noblestorelimited@yahoo.com >

The odd deals weren't offered at the beginning, BTW. I merely asked them a few questions about audio and could easily see that they were not of our field.

I have no way of knowing if they work together, or are the same person, or will ever use those names or email addresses again, but I DID want to share this information with all of you..

Did my search. They don't seem to be registered here, with these identities at least.

Now keep me informed of any scammer around thru classifieds (not regular spam, there's just too many), here or else. It's good to check screwers that have not yet tried to scam here. (sigh)

I found this site about fraud, in English, note the kind of demo they prepare is illegal. Lots of links of use in case you have an issue or a doubt.

Now they give the persons to contact when you're screwed in UK: the Metropolitan Police. They can be reached at:

fraud.alert [remove this and replace by an @) met.police.uk

UK Met police website
