email difference?

Recommended Posts

what is the difference for photos in an email reply and direct.email...?

can photos be trogen one not the other...or slip thru from different methods....?

was watching a n item on CL  knew it was listed cheap but take a chance,

scrapper keeps getting perfectly good running tractors for  $.020/1.00 then wants $3K out of the engine parts alone.

didnt ask for photos as the map shown was close (is there an app so it spoofs local?)

address?

phone?

why selling?

replies....

Hi,can you give me an e-mail?  I'll send you the information and I'll attach a lot of photos.Thank you
 
I can`t see your email dear 
 
to which I responded how did I get your 1st reply....? send phone # thanks
then had GD send since you dont have a USA address this must be in nigeria  ready for pick up, Have gift cards in hand, call me for the code

YEs  was 98% sure but what do they get out of it.....

wouldnt call me to get codes

if something was in photos.....why not simply send it......? ....and norton etc would catch.....?

why bother there are 100,s of these ads out there, $10-60K + and they think we will buy that many cards and send over the codes...?

I found a 1940 Ford pickup on the Www for sale in Howard Ohio, pictures looked like just what I  am watching for , price was right so I sent off my email and phone number .   Mistake number one and two! 

About 30 min later I get a phone call from Ohio and it’s a con artist, I hung up on him.

next day I noticed my email was not working and had been hacked into , 

fixed that ,  

then got an email from the truck seller with a whole bunch of pictures of the truck and a  story about how the truck was his dads and he inherited it but dosent have room for it ,  however he can’t show it to me because it’s in Florida at a friends place in storage and I will have to send a deposit to a guy in Florida to hold it because he ( the guy in Ohio) just got deployed on a submarine duty to an unlown location and dosent know when he will be back . 

I blocked him , changed all passwords again and call it another lesson in life. 

Between crap like this, two or three telemarketer calls each day and all the other con artest and scams im real sick of it all.

They got me too. I saw something on Craig’s list I wanted. Called but no answer. Then I get a text wanting my email so they can send more pictures. I replied that I didn’t need to see any more pictures I had cash. Just needed an address and time to pick it up. No reply. I think the text message was from a computer programmed to give that text to any number that called. I didn’t have any problems from this but I know they have my number now. Who knows what they will do with it.

yall are dodging the point/ question... 1 owner/operator/low hour $20K      (as show in ad photos 70% off)

before my check clears I would have machine....or COD would have had 3 sources run the serial   and back checked owner

where is the profit......as there are hundreds of these daily

hard phone is basically immune ....we never got there ,even for the FREE gift cards

by the very nature of replying to my address request,  could have sent many photos.....they auto open so....

email prints out on the reply..so........didnt ask (of me) anything else

most people would want to test item.....not sending gift cards to some one 15 miles away  4 blocks from police station ( map in ad)I had flagged it out 

the #1 hardest thing to get from legitimate ad is more /proper photos

then serial #  

been after a  1 of < 100 for 6 months (600 mile ) trip.

husband (seller) only does phone

wife only does email    got 2 of same ad photos ,refuses to send more due to slow ISP..

 

several 100 copies of this scam out there .search most anything and get it

the old saying, if it sounds to good to be true it probably is, i report all of these/flag for removal type ads, its a bunch of stuff we just have to deal with, if i cant talk to a person and or go see it, i am not buying - you can hire people to do this for you if its something worthy or have a relative in the area do it for you, pretty easy to flush these idiots out when you apply logical requests and they bawk
