  2. Yup. Just got same message. I wish I could trace these peoples IPS or something and hunt them down. Thanks for the heads up.

  3. The two emails I received:
    hope you are doing good today…Hey wont be back in town till sunday night – I’m in the city at the moment but I might be able to let my wife come and see it.. text me and ill let you know if that would be possible get back to me thru my email… charlessrigould@gmail.com///Then Today: Hello! let’s do like this, actually now I’m not in town for now, I

    the condition as seen on the advert, I’ll proceed in issuing a Check

    They are using two different emails: tonyabkn@gmail.com and charlessrigould@gmail.com. Sure sounds fishy to me!!

    • @K
      They may send you a fake check, then ask you to send them some money. Toss the check in the trash and feel free to reply to the scammers email with a link to this posting.

  4. Never trusted this. I was very confused about the Tonya and Kelly emails, too. We sent our address and “she” sent us a check, telling us to wire the excess funds to a mover. She later changed the mover’s address, and the states mentioned in the email were all over the place. She was purchasing a keyboard, although she never mentioned it specifically, never signed any email, and never called us, despite me asking her to several times. I googled her email address and came up with this. Thanks so much for the head’s up!

  5. Yep! Just received the same email. Its a total scam. I wish these people would just get a job and leave the rest of us alone.

  6. Annnnd….yet another address they use: hudsondeborah11@gmail.com. I got this initial email first:
    “Hello,..hope its in great condition and works great ??Can I come by tomorrow and check it out. Give me a call and tell me how to get there..email me at hudsondeborah11@gmail.com God Bless.

    From my Android phone on T-Mobile. The first nationwide 4G network.”

    And after I gave my address, thinking it wad a legit seller and I immediately got a reply with the same above canned message as you all from “Tonya.” People suck, man. I hate scammers and time wasters 🙁

  7. Got one today for an ad I have on CL…..

    First asking to reply to: JeffreyCoto0s@gmail.com
    I did, not sure why….
    Then an email From: tonyabkn@gmail.com

  8. I got similar emails about a product I listed on Craigslist I proceeded with giving them my information as they did not tell me about the Western money transfer until the check was already here, what I was selling was under $100 they sent me a check for $2000 stating that someone needed to pick it up and to transfer the extra funds to them to cover what they were buying and for their travel expenses of course then I knew it was a scam please report your cases to ic3.gov and FTC or call #1-877-382-4357 help others who might be older or naive from getting scammed. These people need to be caught!

  9. I just got an email from these scammers. It sounded phoney. I am selling a truck. They never mentioned it in the reply and they didnt use the subject line I said to use to indicate it is a real person. Heres the email:
    Hi, Hope me or my Wife is welcome to come by to see it today. After 2pm Today (Sunday) works well for me. Let me know if you have a particular time in mind, and I will go ahead and check my shcedul pls Keep me posted ASAP and what can you reduce from the Price?., Get back to me via kellyuhx@gmail.com  and thanks! kelly.”

    • Hi, Hope me or my Wife is welcome to come by to see it today. After 2pm Today (Sunday) works well for me. Let me know if you have a particular time in mind, and I will go ahead and check my shcedul pls Keep me posted ASAP and what can you reduce from the Price?., Get back to me via kellyuhx@gmail.com and thanks! kelly.

      Haha wow nice job people of the internet. Same exact situation as wade above trying to sell his truck I’m trying to sell my car and they emailed me to. I felt weird and googled the email thank god I did. But even if they offered me a check I woulda known then I wouldn’t take a check unless they leave the item with you until it clears.

      • I just got this identical email (two of them) from kellyuhx@gmail.com in response to a post of a camera for sale. As it sounded phony (today is NOT Sunday), and given the writing, I assumed spam and just deleted it. On a whim I googled that email address just to see, and was happy to find this site to confirm that it was indeed spam.

  10. Here is another email being used MyersxReeves@gmail.com
    Email #1:
    Good Morning
    Can you set up a time to meet. I work from home so usually available during the day and evenings.
    I am going out of town late Thursday night for 1 week so tomorrow or next is the best time otherwise it will need to be after I return please get back to me at MyersxReeves@gmail.com and i will see my time frame.

    Email #2:

  11. Got linked into the same scam. Was pretty funny, so I played along. Surprised to receive a check for $3,360.55 with the account name of Peerless Properties LLC Lease Security Account, Grandview Road, Altoona, PA 16601. The UPS overnighted check was sent from Navi Star
    2601 Navistar Drive
    Lisle, IL 60532

    The name they wanted me to send the Western Union is

    RECEIVER’S NAME….DEANNA DONAE MYERS
    ADDRESS……….429 Sw 2nd St
    CITY……..Tulia
    STATE……..TX
    ZIP CODE…….79088

    So I responded saying I would proceed once the check clears. I will not deposit the check because they did not cut a straight line on the check.

    I hope no one actually takes any action on this.

    Here’s the email:

    Hello…how are you doing today? i just got to know now that the check
    will delivered to you today and here is the UPS tracking number for
    the package…. xxxxxxxx

    As soon as you have the check with you…kindly have my check
    Cashed / deposit the check into your bank ATM Machine for Normal bank
    processing and it will clear into your Account within 24hrs the Check
    was deposited, When you have the cash at hand, make sure you deduct
    your money, also deduct $50 for yourself as Run around Expenses.
    Easily forward the Excess fund directly to my Mover in cash
    immediately because the mover is also picking some other Valuable
    Goods for me such as ( Household Furniture’s and Electronics Set.) at
    the same City of your location. That is the reason why you need to
    send the Excess Fund to the Mover via MONEY GRAM WHICH CAN BE EASILY
    DONE AT WAL-MART STORE OR WESTERN UNION MONEY TRANSFER once you
    receive the payment.

    Here is my mover’s information to have the excess funds wire via MONEY
    GRAM or WESTERN UNION MONEY TRANSFER ONLY

    Afterward i will require the following info from you.

    1. The Name and Address of the Sender.
    2. The Amount Sent . ( After Deducting the Transfer Charges ).
    3. Money Control Number ( MTCN ) OR REFRECNCE NUMBER

    Please deduct the transfer charges from the amount you want to send to
    the shipper .Dont forget to send me the map quest to your location
    for easy passage to the shipper.kindly get back to me asap.Go to
    Wal-Mart Store or western union outlet with cash to enable you make
    the transfer ..

    NOTE: please do Chooses Money Available in Minute when sending the
    Money to the Mover viaMONEY GARM OR WESTERN UNION MONEY TRANSFER.

    I hope to read back from you Urgently as I count on your honesty and
    trustworthiness in this Transaction

    God Bless You
    Thanks for the understanding.

    I did correspond for a bit and received a check for $1950.99 from “Alpha Electrical Contractor, LLC – 203 Slayden Ave. Waverly TN” Nothing in envelope but check….

    Email stated – “The payment will deliver to you today via UPS courier service with the tracking # (xxxxx ). I already have you informed that additional funds was coming with the check, the over payment is meant to cover the cost of shipment alongside my other properties shipping money. I received pick-up instruction from mover agent this morning that payment have to paid upfront before pick-up arrangement will be schedule in your own convenient time and date. I want you to proceed in getting the payment deposit/cash, deduct your money and am also offering you an extra $40 for your kindness and run around expenses. Then the difference ( remaining balance ) can be forwarded back via Western union Money Transfer, kindly speed up the process so that my mover can handle the pick-up in a timely manner.

    ***Suspicious with the first email. Suspicions confirmed with the check.
    The check was $1500 more than I was asking.

    Took the info to the local sheriff and now posting this email.

    Bummed I didn’t confirm the scam sooner… ***

  15. I got the same form email from these idiots
    Starts out sounding like a real person asking about my “item”
    Second form email from them asked for my info etc but I used a fake name but the local FBI office address & phone number
    Also they asked what asking price was I make a crazy uneven price 10x what I was selling for. They also answer back never acknowledging the inflated prices

    • Hi Jimi and the rest of ya’ll. I just signed up on OfferUp and the person leighf3h@gmail.com sent me a short interested request with a phone number that conveniently left the last number off and then her request and name disappeared. Maybe some companies have certain known scammers blocked? I am new to all of this since my husband passed and it makes me very leary to begin with, but I need to get rid of these things. I’ve already decided to only meet people at a police station and never at my home. Thanks for everyone’s help.
      Does this only happen in Arizona? I am from RI but had never used any of these apps.
      Any helpful tips would be greatly appreciated.
      ~Heidi

      How do you all put a picture up on here?

    • Looked up email…found this thread and wanted to share… the minute I read the email I thought it was fake… What really bothers me is I was trying to sell something for an older friend who would have had no clue that this was a scam… apparently this has become very common… learned in my neighborhood watch….
