Remember:

  • DO NOT do business with anyone who offers to send you payment for a higher amount than your selling price with the understanding that you'll send back the balance.

  • Be suspicious of anyone claiming to be acting on behalf of a "client" or another "customer".

  • Be suspicious of anyone claiming to be from Nigeria or West Africa

  • If you agree to accept a check payment, then do not send anything, gear or "change" before the check cleared. And be careful, if you manage to clear a fraudulent check then you may be liable for the damages if the bank finds out later. Make sure your bank authenticates the check.

  • If it sounds to good to be true, then it probably is.

he came after me too. it sounded pretty fishy to begin with. He told me there is a check in the mail. If it actually shows I'm going to send it to the cops.

*sigh* he got me too = -_- = and i was really hoping to sell my rig, because i'm leaving for the military training and most likely will never use it...
and i haven't even jumped with it EVER = -_- = it's new
what a waste of my money = -_- =

why do ppl do this anyway? is anyone really stupid enough to send them the rig before having them pay for it?

I've been on to this as a scammer for a few weeks and I just wanted to see if a check actually showed up in the mail... So far nothing yet.

Here's a copy of our e-mail conversation:

Phillip,

I have another buyer. Besides all that, I just noticed that you are on the "Security and Scams Alerts" forum on dropzone.com and quite frankly, I think that you might be full of shit.

If you are in the business of scamming people, you might want to get your shit together and move things along a lot quicker to get it over with before people catch on to your bullshit.

If a check from you does finally show up, I will authenticate it through my bank and if it is fraudulant I will forward it to the proper authorities.

Thank you very much for wasting my time in selling this canopy... FUCK OFF ASSHOLE!

Sincerely,
John Zagoda

P.S. If you are actually are a skydiver, I hope that you bounce while jumping gear that you stole from somebody.

I do have another buyer very interested, but I will sell it to you because I know that it will make somebody's Christmas very special. The $2275 (U.S.) is very generous and I will reserve it for you. I will cover the entire shipping cost for that price. It will take 6 to 10 days for shipping. I will ship it as soon as payment clears.

Please send payment to:

I f you're interested, I'll only charge you $20 for shipping and I'll cover the rest.

last price

John Zagoda <johnzagoda@yahoo.com> wrote: The canopy is still for sale. The only flaws on the
canopy are two very small pin holes on the center cell
of the tail. They have been there for over 200 jumps
and haven't gotten any worse, so I haven't seen a need
to repair them. Besides that the canopy is perfect.

The only reason I'm selling it is to buy a slightly
smaller one.

I will send a picture of the two pin holes I mentioned
later this week. The canopy is in my rig that is an
hour away from me and I won't have a chance to get it
for a couple days.

The RDS is the best that you can get. If you really
want performance I strongly recommend using an RDS
with the JVX... It flies like a completely different
canopy.

I am fine with certified bank check or money order. I
would have to get an estimated cost for shipping
before you would send payment.

I have several others interested in the canopy, but
nobody committed.

Thank you,

John Zagoda
