Contact info

This officer left contact information in a comment, but I wanted to give him as much attention as he deserves, so I'm reposting it here:
If anyone has been scammed by Fawn Adams, please email me so I can get in touch with you. I am building a case against this person and need your help. or contact Det. Crouthamel at Kinnelon PD 973-838-1124.
No, it's not a scam!
I strongly urge anyone who has actually been scammed (as opposed to folks like me who just enjoy playing with these idiots in hopes to distract them from their actual prey) to contact him.  It looks to me like he's in New Jersey and it's actually the Kinnelon NJ PD's number (of course I had to look it up before I posted it).

I wish you luck in your pursuit of this dirtball, officer.  I would like to support your effort in any way I can.

woo wee! A check for $1990.00

So, my friend David Da King (I am amused by that name every time I write it), finally came across with some bucks.  $1990 to be precise.  For a $600 desk.  Seems a little overkill, but hey, I'll go along with the fun.

It was drawn on a bank out of New York, called Signature Bank.  I called them up and talked to a very nice man who told me that the check was counterfeit.  *GASP*...I was shocked. Or....not.

Interestingly enough, it was drawn on an account for Clean Power Technologies Inc, at 600 Lexington Avenue, NY, NY.  I can't read the signature, but it's certainly not David DaKing. 

So, I'm going to contact my local police department and see what we can do to chase this prick down.  The UPS package can likely be traced back to whomever sent it, so I have to believe they'll be able to hunt him/her down...But it's all about the desire to bust him.  That seems to be the biggest issue.  Yes, I realize that there are much bigger fish to fry, but let's face it, this sort of crime is the type of crime that hurts the Americans that can scarcely afford to get hosed.

I'll keep everyone informed as to how it goes, but hopefully, I'll get some love from the local PD.

It's my lucky day!

Or not.

As much as I'd be amused by a free Mac Book Air, given to me by the CEO of Craigslist, I'm thinking this is a scam, what do you think?


Hello, my name is Jim, Ceo of

We fairly recently combined up with Apple about a 1 time advertising event lately, we're giving freely complimentary MacBook Air to randomly selected men and women who have posted an advert that use C-list. You've been selected as one of our most current winners for this week. We now randomly choose stats to match up with advertising on Craigslist and your advertisement matched with this latest drawing.

You'll find we combined with Apple to promote their best device yet, the Apple MacBook Air. Remember, were running this campaign for 1 day only. All you need to do is Click On This Link to visit our web-site designed for this promotion and put in your email to acquire yours cost-free. Be sure you you enter your email therefore we may find our records to be sure that we've reserved one for you personally. That's all!

Congratulations on winning a free of charge Apple MacBook Air (valued at $1,499.00). If you ever get any problem or problems, at any time email me back. Regardless, be sure to claim your cost free MacBook Air firstly to make certain 1 is booked for you prior to the deadline ends. We do know that you could possibly not receive this mail until following the due date, nevertheless, we advise you take a look at the web-site and provide your email to find out if we still have yours on hold, which we often do because others haven't claimed theirs on time.


Ceo, Cl
Now, given that I'm never this lucky, I figured this was fishy, especially since the CEO of Craigslist is named Jim Buckmaster, and the originating address for this email was Jim Bassi <>.  The poor grammar doesn't help either, but I figured you don't have to be a genius to be a CEO (take a look at several of them out there)...

But of course, this is a scam.

Darn, I was hoping to get addicted to Apple products so I could help pay to keep Steve Jobs' corpse frozen in nitrogen until they find a cure for his cancer.  (too soon?)

I was really hoping for a clever new ruse to publicize here so that folks would be made aware of it, but Ann, in her complete and utter lack of creativity, resorted to the same tired fake Paypal email, originating from (which was also the email from several posts ago).  Who truly believes this crap?  I guess someone does, because otherwise these human wastes of oxygen wouldn't do it.

One variant, there's a different shipper in the mix:

Agent's Info: 
Tameika Tucker
1599 Rock Mountain Blvd,
Stone Mountain,GA 30083

So, we at least have that going for us...but disappointment all around in the lack of creativity.  Maybe David or Tim will venture better than Ann. 

My response to Ann?  I thought you'd never ask:
I’m not sure what kind of idiots you’re used to dealing with, but anyone with half a brain knows that Paypal doesn’t send notifications via Gmail. 
Did your parents have any children that lived?  Are you truly this stupid?  Do people really take an email as proof of payment without looking in their Paypal account to confirm that payment has been received? 
If you lived in the US, I would hunt you down and beat you with a baseball bat, slowly of course, so that I could see the life leaving your eyes.  But I couldn’t be so lucky as to have an idiot scumbag scammer attempting to steal my money from within my home country.  I’m sure that your sorry ass is from some backwards-ass third world country where you screw goats and eat dogs.
Die in a fire you stain upon humanity.
I'd really like to see a response from this, but I doubt they have the balls. I was trying to goad them into a response, but I'm sure they'll just move on to their next target.

ACH payment cancelled

In my email, I received a cancellation of an ACH payment.  Of course, a simple examination of the email shows that it was a scam, since ACH payments rarely originate from (registered in Belgium), nor do those emails include a graphic that is hosted at

So, which one of our lucky players will send me an email saying "Hey, I tried to send you an ACH, but it was cancelled" with some sort of imaginative excuse...will it be player 1- Ann?  Player 2-, Tim?  Or player 3- David?  Only time will tell...but I guarantee you, I'll keep you informed.

And yet another

Here's a new player in our game:  Tim Nauman, or  He writes:
Thanks for the prompt response to my mail. I will be buying from you so please kindly withdraw the advert from C.LIST. Please be informed that i will be paying with a certified check from my Bank it will be delivered to you via United Parcel Service (UPS) or FedEx , so I'll need you to provide me with the following information to facilitatethe mailing of the check...

                Name to be on the payment...........
                Home address...........
                Zip Code..............
                Cell phone #................

I will make arrangements for the pick up as soon as you have your money I am completely satisfied with the advert and the payment will be delivered within 24hours.** I use a hearing impaired phone # and will receive your calls via email **

N.B UPS/FedEx does not deliver to a P.O box addresses.Thanks
W00t! I have scammers fighting over who can send me money first.  Maybe, just maybe, we can get the police actually interested in this, since thus far I've been 100% unable to get them remotely interested in arresting these scumbags.

By the way, my response was something along the lines of "I'll take the advertisement off Craigs list when the money is in my hands, and my name & address", which of course is public knowledge.  I did not provide them my cell, since I know there are some scams where they can charge to my cell #.

Should be interesting over the next couple days to see how this rolls.

w00t...more responses

Apparently the idiots are out in full force today.  I received three different requests about my desk that's on Craigslist, all of which look to be scams.  Each one asked if the item was still available, which seems to be a standard question for scammers.  That's all they ask.  The first response was this, received from the email address

Thanks for the swift response, just to let you know that am okay with the condition and price of the item, am ready for its purchase and i know there might be other potential buyers so am willing to add extra $30 so that you can keep it in my favor.  My form of payment will be by sending you Check via FedEx 2days local delivery. 
I'll be responsible for the pick-up and the movers/pick up money will be included in your payment to avoid delay and to enable movers to schedule an appropriate time for the pick-up at your location after check has been cashed,as i have other properties to be moved alongside with yours.
I would have really love to come for the viewing but due to my work frame that might not be possible, I hope you understand. Kindly get back to me with your full name and address including your cell number so i can make out payment to you.

I believe this is based on trust.



God Bless America!
Which I found relatively ironic, since "I believe this is based on trust" would indicate that I'm supposed to trust him because heck, he trusts me.  So, I'm going to go ahead and give him my full name and address so he can "make out payment to me". 

Golly, I can't wait!

More scammer scumbags

So, I have a desk for sale on Craigslist.  And once again, I get the same dumbass trying to scam me...or at least, the same scam:

From:  Ann Walker []
Thanks for your prompt e-mail, i want you to get back to me with more picture and is there any other issues with it not mentioned on Craigslist.Am satisfied with your advert price, as am requesting this transaction should be done via PayPal so the PayPal charges is on me,If my offer is accepted send me your PayPal email and your name including your phone# or send me paypal invoice so i can pay you right away.I am busy at work and do not have much time around me, but no worries as i am willing to handle the picked of this merchandise through my legitimate mover agent cause i will like it to be picked at your residence location,Make sure you get back to me immediately, So no Shipping

Now, since I've already been through this once, I figure it's time to escalate.  I send back:
Dear Ann,

Rather than screwing around with mover agents and all the rest, please send me your Paypal address so that I may send you a PayPal bill and bill your account directly.  You see, I've recently dealt with some really shady people who think that they deserve another person's hard-earned money without really coming forward with the goods/services that they requested.  So, in an effort to work with only honest people, which you obviously are, given that you're so busy with work, I'd prefer to work directly through Paypal, rather than any other process.

I'll even throw in free delivery to within 50 miles of my location if you follow this process.



Now to sit back and wait for the amusement.
