Received text from above number interested in my craigslist listing. Said he was a bad texter and to use email walkingthon@gmail.com. Response on that email is below. This is word for word what I have found on several scam sites:


Hello,

Thanks for the response, My name is Rick Smith. I am buying this as a surprise to someone very dear to me and I want to keep it that way(AS A SURPRISE) after delivery day. I work with Turner Construction,we are currently working at a very rural area which makes it very hard for me to make phone calls due to bad network reception here but you can always text me . I will not be able to view it but I have a Mover who will come for the pickup so please get back to me with more pics and also I will be making the payment via PayPal as that is the only payment option I can access from here I hope you understand.I have some questions for you;

Are you the first owner of it?
Where do you live?
What is your final asking price?
Does it have anything negative i should know about?

Hope to read back from you soon.....
Regards Smith

This guy name Rick Smith is a big scammer, so don't fall for his Paypal payment, Western Union etc. Don't believe his long professional stories, all made up stuff. He said he works in rural area and Paypal is the only option he's got. Let me tell you something: this is AMERICA and you have ATM's etc., in every corner. This is not a third world country, and I don't know what this guy thinking. He needs to get a real job and earn his money that way, and not scamming people who are just trying to sell items on Craig's list. I didn't fall for any of his lies. He may be using other names to, to try to scam anyone he can, so watch out.

I replied I find it odd and that you can call me to discuss. No response Total SCAM

Same as other received a text message with the same wording inquiring about furniture I had for sale on face book. I responded by text message, and did not get a response. I waited a few days, and sent him a email, and received the "it's a surprise for someone dear to me" speech, and that he had movers that would pick up the furniture and pay me through paypal. At that point I stopped all communication with him.

This is a GROUP of scammers not just one individual! I received the exact same text from 3 different phone numbers just hours apart & an email that was similar from a third person, none of which knew I was "dealing" with the next. The phone numbers I dealt with are from LasVagas area code of 702. They tell you they can't talk but can communicate through text or email. They offer to pay through paypal but want to include a courier fee in your payment.They will send you a fake email from "paypal" saying a credit to your account has been made in the amount you are asking plus the courier fee. They want you to open the fake email, open the fake link & give your information away.

Exactly like the rest, I had a Craigs list ad. He buys it and then sends me a fake PayPal email saying the money is in my account but there is extra money ($680 in my case). Then he wants me to do a Western Union check to a guy so he will pick it up. And he sends texts but can't take a phone call. I'm going to do a police report.

Here is the email:

"Hello ,i have made the payment so i expect that you should have gotten an email from PayPal any moment for confirmation, and i will suggest you check your PayPal email in-box and SPAM/JUNK BOX BECAUSE THEIR EMAIL SOMETIMES END UP THERE.I want you to know that i added an extra fee of $680 to the total payment which i need you to help send to the agent coming for pick up and it needs to be sent via Western Union as that's the only way they can get it. I am sorry i should have informed you but i only got the urgent message from the pick up agent that they will need the funds before they can come to pick up when i was about making the payment. i have been in contact with PayPal about the situation of our deal and i was told accurate security will be put on this transaction and that you are required to follow some instructions before the funds will be made available to you which i was told you have been notified with the steps.I also added $100 the Western Union charges.Please help to send the pickup agent fee to my pickup agent and get back to me if there's anything you need to know more so i will need your home address for the pickup of the item.Below is the pickup agent information.
