Death to Scammers

I posted some stamps to sell on Craig's list. {which I still have if anyone is interested} and instead of getting people who want to buy them I've been getting scammers that are replying to me. After sending them hate mail back and wishing them well to hell.... I've decided that I was going to make it funny instead.

Here is the email that I received and this was one of many {this is exactly how it looked in my in box}
Hello seller How are you doing today? Am interested in your item you post in Craigslist, so i want you to get back to me with the condition and the last price for it and the list of item you have in thecraigslist...Thanks and waiting to read from you soon


Here is my reply... {yes I sent this to the "buyer}
$1,000,000 in US currency

I'm selling gold rubies in the shape of Obama's head.

Please send me your Social Security number with checking account information and routing number so this transaction can be processed quickly. ***NOTE: I don't accept cash or checks only Cashier's Checks or IOU's from the state of California

Please don't be alarmed when the two men in dark suits and sun glasses show up at your door. They will be picking up the Cashier's Check or IOU and leaving you with a message from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Give them the code word Banana.

If you have any other questions please refer to the FBI Fraud Center, for your convenience you can click

Thank you again for your interest in my item, I'm sure that this will work out best for both of us.

-Seller

PS... by opening this email you have now installed a worm on your computer that will log you key strokes and visited internet sites {NO porn please} to include your usernames and passwords and be sent directly to me. Who's Scammed Now!!!

Oh yeah... don't try to run any anti-virus softwear to remove the worm, it embeds itself into your computer and becomes part of the BIOS


In case any of you are wondering... I have absolutely no idea how to install any worms {deep breath out now} the husband was helping me write this.

I have been spending time on Facebook, but I think I have found a new past time.... posting stuff on Craig's List hoping to lure scammers in and then mess with their heads.

Hahahaha! If it's okay I'm going to steal this and use it the next time I get email from a scammer.

That's all we got after we posted our house for sale on Craigslist. Boo Scammers...Hooray for Leah and saving the day! :)

Melissa said...

Wow, I guess I have never experienced scammers online. Probably because my husband is so computer handy and deals with it before i know. Way to go! I'd love to know what they were thinking when they read about the worm!

Leah, have I commented before? If not, sorry. This is so funny! Oh I almost wish I had any craigslist connections so I could use this idea. Aren't scammers annoying? My current favorite (if I can use the word at all) is the one that begins, "Congratulations, Mr XYZ - as you have the same last name as our benefactor Mr ABC, you are eligible to win US $1 million..." On the home front, we have three daughters and our youngest reminds me of your Tim. Sigh. I commiserate.
