I've seen it all on CL. All the excuses. I tend to enjoy the ones that offer to buy my expensive cell phone and pay to ship it. It's great fun to tell them I need a new shipping label because the FedEx people didn't believe the phone was only worth $20. It's also fun to take a spare dummy display phone from my work, beat the crap out of it with a hammer, then ship it to them on their dime.
My question is this though... is it actually their dime? Or are these bogus accounts created with stolen credit cards as well? God knows they don't do much in their real name anyway.
Does anyone have any experience with tracing the FedEx account? I'd like to know if it's truly the scammer's money I'm wasting.
Also, is there a dead shipping account icon for signatures? My kill list is at 12 so far

I always figure nothing they do is on their dime, unless they are in a "need to spend money to make money" phase when they don't have the money from victims (yet). Sort of like any business. But, their time is wasted, and maybe they get their arse beat by an Oga for spending money for nothing, or get discouraged.

An interesting observation on the recent three craigslist threads.
Each thread title deals with 'craigslist' differently.
We have Craigslist, CraigsList and Craig's List.
All of the craigslist inc sites appear to only use 'craigslist'.

The ones I've dealt with have always used Fedex or DHL accounts set up with stolen CC numbers. These guys are usually really good at minimizing the trail they lead. Only a fool would have you ship the item using their own CC number.

That's what I figured. I suppose the most I can do is get their FedEx account closed then. Thanks for the info.
