QUOTE (Eliezer @ Fri 20 Oct 2006, 18:10) *
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..


"Peter Wreth" just tried to buy my BMW and wants it shipped to England! Definately watch out for this one! He also signs email with both Peter and Aidan. My Bank is tracking the cashier's check that he sent and then forwarding it on to the FBI. Just thought I would chime in!

I've just made a blog post (my first) to sum up what to check, what to do, where to go… to be extended, translated.

Hi,

This scammer's pretty careless so I don't think the police will have too much trouble picking him up.

He was using silvrmbr (Silver Member) and nsgoit (Noise Gate) advertising Neumann U87 vintage, claiming it was used only for guitar.

Here are the details he provided in case he tries it out again:

Name : CEDRIC FLOCH
Address: 42 rue saint pierre 26200 Montélimar FRANCE
Phone: +33 (0)6 88 05 99 46
Bank Name : CAISSE D' EPARGNE

Stick with the echrow!

I've just banned other identities of him, no classifieds linked to them seemingly.
