Thanks for getting back to me i think i have no choice other than to accept the price you selling it out to me.

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.

Everyone listed in the Scam Alert forum is a confirmed scammer. Never do any dealing with ANYONE listed in this forum section.

He contacted me as username "d_12". I should have checked this forum before asking for a payment. Received a check for $3,000 for a $1,300 sale. Reading back through the emails it should have been obvious, but I've been unloading a ton of gear and it sort of slipped by.

Never sent the canopy or tried to deposit the check, of course.

EDIT: I should add that he never offered a higher amount. He actually tried to bargain on the price. It wasn't until I actually received the check that I saw he had added $1700 for "shipping".

This guy is still active under the same name. He had a buddy of mine ready to Western Union him the $1,500 he overpaid in the $4,500 check he sent.

These scammers tend to register new accounts under different e-mail addresses, the account associated with this e-mail account has been disabled since the post was made.

As requested above though, any e-mails from scammers should be forwarded to abuse@dropzone.com so that we can take necessary action.
