  • I got one of those Nigerians to send me a fake check (Pictures inside)

    I've been listing a lot of **************** on Craigslist lately and have gotten TONS of those stupid scamming emails and decided to give one of them my address and a fake name to see what would happen. Turns out I got a check for $3500! Here is the email I got from the dude today to let me know there is a check on my front door.

    Hello ,
    How are you today? I Just to keep you update that the payment has be delivered to you today via UPS As soon as you have it, take it to your bank, deposit it and withdraw the shipper fund and $100 for the troubles and send the balance to the shipper through western union money western union location in your area.

    Afterward i will require the following info from you....

    1. The name and address of the sender.
    2. The amount sent. (After deducting the transfer Charges).
    3. Mtcn number (10 digit number on the western union receipt)

    Please deduct the transfer charges from the amount you want to send to
    the shipper ..kindly get back to me asap.Go to western union store
    with cash to enable you make the transfer . I will await your response asap.

    I don't have the original email because I must have deleted it but it's just one of those typical emails telling you to cash the check, deduct shipping and handling charges, take a bit more for myself, and send the remaining amount back to him. Haha what a joke, like I'm going to fall for that. I can't believe they actually went through and sent me an obvious fake check. This thing feels like it was printed on Xerox paper for crying out loud. Oh yeah, I also don't have any fear of him coming to get me because I live in a busy area and my apartment complex is completely gated off.

    To prove I really did get the check here are the pictures:

                          God I hate these people. This is a reply I got about a guitar I'm selling, I gave the guy a chance and this was his reply:

                          I have instructed my assistant to send out your payment as soon you provide your full name,phone number and address. I can only pay via money order as am on business trip now,the money order is going to clear from your bank before the pick up. Please let me know where to send your payment to because i would'nt want to lose it to someone else. I dont mind adding fifty dollars so you can keep it in my favor. As for the pick-up, I already have an arrangement for that.Hope is in good condition?"

                            I've always wondered if they actually send someone to pick up the item or do they just tell you to mail it when it comes to it?

Anniston thinks his music is seriously "intense" so its working. If you think about it we're all just trying to impress the chicks. I think I write or play to impress the hot cool hippy chicks not mega millionaires actresses, thats why he sounds plastic.
