    BEWARE!! Craigslist/Gumtree users

    There is a fraud who has scammed hundreds of people and almost got to me! He wanted to purchase my 2010 Nissan Maxima so he sent the following email:

    Thanks for the swift response...I am willing to know the lowest price of
    it.due to the nature of my job and location...i will not be able to come
    for inspection,am a very busy type as i work long hours
    everyday,i have gone through your advertisement and i am satisfied with
    it.As for the payment..i will be paying you via the fastest and secure
    way to pay online(PayPal).I have a private courier agent that will come for
    the pick up after the payment have been made ...so no shipping included.
    You can now send me your PayPal email so i can pay in right away and also
    include your address in your reply.If you don't have a paypal
    account,you can easily set up one...log on to ------------- and sign
    up. its very easy.I await your reply asap


    I clicked on the link as I needed a new paypal account and I found out it was a clever but fake paypal site. Anyway, I went ahead and filtered all the numerous IP Address's he was using and finally traced him back to his original location.I reported him to a friend I have who works in IC3 (Internet FBI) and told me they are sending a police who is associated with IC3 that lives in his country and now PayPal can sue him for Business theft and I'm glad to hear that he's going to court for a prison sentence of 18 months

    He had other accounts as well and if you want I can list them in case he's active again. Hope this may help you :D

    Yeah 18 months is short but who knows how things work where he's from... I myself worked my a$$ off to buy that car while paying rent & uni fees. I hope he drops the soap :D

    I know exactly what you mean! And those youtube comments on songs that say "Look at naked pics of my GF on this site" I hate them so much! I would prefer a thousand trolls in a room with me than a constant spammer on the internet

    I thought it was obvious not to use paypal to buy/sell things on craigslist.... It even says it on the website.

    This seriously almost happened to me too. I was selling my Smartphone on craigslist and someone texted me a good price for my phone so I was happy. I couldn't even tell if it was a fake pay pal website. I was going to ship the phone to Nigeria but luckily a lady that worked at the post office told me about how people in Nigeria would scam people. After that I didn't ship my $500 smartphone and went home to do some research and yes people in NIgeria do scam people.

    First take a look at the scamwarners link I sent you and see the results of the people who thought the same then go onto this site:

    http://mashable.com/2010/01/01/idn-phishing/

    And it will tell you how to tell the difference.. You're sucking the joy out of this for me

    Haha! Very clever. I still got sent to the real one though, I can tell by the cookies.

    T_T It didn't work for me, seems they don't like my kind.

    Hmm, Idk maybe the one he sent me in the mail was the real link but for the other people it went to a fake site which was very hard to tell the difference. Poor them..

    He probably sent you the fake one

    It probably just didn't copy right.... Either from you onto the board or by me not merely clicking it but copying it into one of my "testing" browsers.

    Of course it is possible one of my browsers or phishing software corrected the problem before it happened . I have pretty good security, though this is the first time I have heard about what you posted
