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.

I wish I had seen this before I was scammed By him/her! Jeffyrichard@rediff.com contacted me about a boat I am selling online and I sent 600.00 through Western Union and tried to stop payment but the money had already been picked up. He spoofed a paypal page and it said the payment for the boat was pending a copy of the western union tranfer info. it was sent to "Cynthia Brown" I asked WU if I had any recourse in getting back my money and they basically said I was screwed. I filed a report with local law enforcement and online with IC3.com but I do not know where to go from here or if there is anything that I can do. His/her email IP shows it was from India
