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.

This same person has emailed me about a container using a new username but same email address. His username now is johnson0005. basically identical email to the one posted here. Come on, Dropzone.com, how can you not see this pattern!?

this individual has contacted me as well and offered to pay more via "certified check". The grammar did not even make sense and was buying "for his son". He claims he is an "engineer".
The comment phrase was the same as reported on this forum threat below.

thanks for looking out!
