KIM70 contacted me and was interested in purchasing my item. I found it suspicious when I went to send her a payment request via paypal and she did not have an account set up. Once I sent her the request she never responded.
Thanks for the posting....just received an email from BIGLLC and I thought it looked suspicious. Glad to know I'm not just paranoid! Thanks!
I emailed w/BIGLLC several times and then contacted Paypal after a supposed payment was sent to my account. Thanks for letting people know!!!
Hello this is swtcarolinagirl I received this email today, from "hardy" I think you need to ad them to your list..

Hello Seller,

Thanks for your co operation

Thanks so much...
Yeah, I got some from hardy, too. Including that one...word-for-word. Always trust your gut, and mine told me this one was a scammer. Once I told them I had set up an account thru SafeFunds.Com and they would have to pay me thru that, I never heard from them again. Which is what I figured would happen. LOL!
These guys are dumb. One simple rule. Do not ship anybody anything until you get the money. They are depending on you reacting to an e-mail. Of course I checked my Pay Pal account after the fake e-mail came in and guess what, there was nothing there. This is a lame, lame scam and I am just sorry that it must work out for them once in a blue moon so they keep doing it. I'd like to personally send them a fake package, track it and be there when they get it and beat the crap out of them. I guy can dream right?
Haha @Keither!!! Good one. I got a message today about an item I was selling. I am brand new to this website/selling online and I still immediately knew something was fishy. Like you said...don't ship until you confirm the $ is in your account!!! People should know by now to be cautious of SPAM email...
I would recommend not using paypal as a payment method. I used it 2 yrs ago to buy an item and it turned out to be fake and was scammed out of 3k. Paypal refused to return the money because the sale came from a third party site and there was nothing I could do.
We can't recommend enough. We are constantly surprised at how many people do not use this fail proof system of buying and selling. Please do yourself a favor and use it!
I read about safefunds & here's my question.. It looks like a "buyer" can put a "freeze" on the funds by claiming they didn't receive the item, or that it was misrepresented. So what prevents a person from doing this & you getting no money after you've sent your item???

this person is a scammer.
DonBon03 should be added to this list. She states she is in Hong Kong but from Australia and has a friend traveling to the United States and would like delivery arranged via courier system. She signs her messages Donna. I see there are other Donna scammers as well. Very fishy.
how about the sellers who can also scam like send it the goods with wrong address and the mails is not deliver to your home but is return to them and they just dont answer no more? has anybody had a problem like that? sellers can be also scamers
