Not really a "bait", but I can't tell you how many times I have listed a car on Ebay with a BUY IT NOW only to have a scammer click BUY IT NOW and waste my time and Ebay fees only to have them want to pay via a cashiers check for more than the amount and forward their "Shipper" the shipping fee overage. What sucks is these guys automatically have your REAL NAME and ADDRESS since Ebay so kindly forwards them your information when they win the auction.

A note to fellow Ebays, be sure and lock down you auctions with plenty of restrictions and have buyers have a Paypal account. This has finally elimated most of this.

Anyway I finally tired of it and in January I decided to play along and waste his time and gas like he had done mine. My next posts will be my email chain of our discussions....
Enjoy!

It all starts with an email from Ebay just a day after listing my auction:

I will be sending payment of US $1,500.00 for my item.


Dear chickenhunter,

I will be sending payment of US $1,500.00 via Money Order/CashierCheck shortly.

Hello, I just want to inform you that I have used the buy it now option on the ITEM you posted on eBay. And my method of payment will be via cashier check, which I will also add the shipping fee on it. So after you cash it same day in your bank or cashing point you will have to pay the shipping fee to my shipper who will come to your house and get the item ship then bring it to me. I want you to provide me your name, address and phone number if you could be able to pay the balance to my shipper?

I responded with a "sure thing email" and he immediately responded with a check's in the mail with instructions email. A few days later I get a pretty lousy reproduction of a casheirs check for $3000. $1500 more than the selling price of the car, then an email the next day from him. Here we go.....

I just put the money in the bank and will need to wait until they confirm it clears, as you stated in your original email. There is no way I can make this happen before the weekend. As I just got your email today. Also I would prefer a direct wire to your account. No fees from Western Union.

Well sorta. If I used my REAL home address on Ebay instead of a ghost address of one of my rental properties.....then he might find me....

I guess he might show up an beat one of my renters to a pulp.....

I went to western union and they said sending a Western Union Payment for Ebay is item is likely fraud. I will go ahead and overnight a check to address provided by your shipper. He should have it by Tuesday. I am sorry for the inconvenience....

You have to start from the bottom of each post and read up to see the first email in the chain. Also as I am sending these I have reported him to Ebay and they have suspended his account. I also reported the fraud to Yahoo and they suspended his email address. That is why you'll notice the confusion on my part as to why he's using a different email address?!!?!?!

Terry,
I have the money. I am having trouble with my email, so I am having to use my blackberry. I do not want to give you my phone number to have someone call me at home and call me names like "BASTARD" like you have called me. I would just rather not do business. You might get the car and not even like it. I would just assume refund your money back to you. I went to the bank and got out the $300 you sent me. The bank said I should just get an international Money Order as those would be good in the UK and it would not be a very big fee, plus it is safer than Money Gram they said. I could wire you the money, but I do want to pay the $135 fee and I am sure you do not want to pay it if you are not getting the car. I just want to send you a refund and I will just relist the car. This is too much trouble for me. I am sorry, but I hope you understand.

I was going to money gram office but I don't think this right. Do you have a telephone number so I can verify our original transaction?

Somewhere here I am missing a critical email and one of the best. When I tell him I am no longer going to send him $1500 and instead I want to just cancel the transaction and I'll just REFUND him back the whole $3000 and I'll just keep my car, he sends me an email jumping for joy and is so excited!!!! Darn it! I don't know where that email went, but here's what follows....

Ok. I have sent the money. Fortunately the Fee was not that bad. Only $60. They said you would be getting 1457.00 Pounds? They said it should only take about 10 minutes, but I have made a mistake and need to go back. I sent the money to the Shipper not to you! I am sorry! Since we are not shipping this car now I need to get this changed! I will go back to the Moneygram Office right away and see if they can correct it. I need your name and address. I don't think you have ever sent that to me? I should be able to change it, but it might cost another $60. I can scan in a copy of the receipt and send it to you if you need it, but they said you will need to show proof of ID to pick up this money and I sent it to the wrong person. Sorry Terry I didn't catch this before. I didn't realize it when you gave me the address below. I'll be back at that store in about 20 minutes.....

Hello son of a bitch!!!!!!!!!
Like I said before you’re a BASTARD! Who have no life and can never do things right. I did went to a money gram office here in London, Uk and they said the reference number on the receipt is FAKE which I know you deliberately do it to scam me off my money, meanwhile I have contacted some private agent who will monitor your movement from now on!! You have less than an hour to get to the money gram you send the money from and ask them why the money was not available to pick up. Or else I will not collect the money again it your life I will ask the agent to collect that mean you will be death.
Good day ripper!!!!!!!
