Hi, I'm new to this and receievd the basic Craig's List scam response where the person offers to pay full price for your listed item and asks that you send a payment to a "shipping company" in the US and then he will reimburse you.

Anyway, I am in the US, have traced his IP address to Nigeria, and this idiot gave me the personal information of an individual (name and address) in the US to send the money to. The road was nonexistent, but the town exhists and a simple Google search produced that individual's e-mail and phone number. I e-mailed the person asking her confirmation the money came in. It's no surprise that I had a quick response from that person, who confirmed they are working with the Nigerian, and gave me the real address and told me the money didn't come.

Anyone have an idea of what the best way to move forward witht this will be??

Simply state that you don't lend money. If he needs to borrow money for the shipper, contact his bank. Then play the bait for the check and extra for the shipper. Wait until you get the check, then wait for it to clear, etc.. Know in advance it is fake. Don't cash it. Google craigslist scams for how they work.

Hi, Thanks for the response. I wasn't clear before--I KNOW THIS IS A SCAM. I am wondering if I should report this person to the local police, the FBI, etc. I don't want to have it get lost and ignored by some authority who could actually do something about it. Or is there a way I can scare the hell out of the US based assistant, make her think she's going to jail, etc? The US person has a MySpace page and several other public profiles with a lot of personal information and there is no question that they are helping the Nigerian scammer and keeping a portion of the money.

Chances are the person in the US that you are dealing with is a mule. Many of them are victims. PM me (or any other mod) the details and we'll deal with it accordingly.

PM a moderator, they can warn the person in the US who is almost certainly as much a victim as any other - being used as a mule, and the police will come knocking on their door soon, better if they get out of the mule game before it's too late!

Very often, mules are recruited through romance scams, jfyi.

So PM am mod, any mod, and they'll deal with it for you Smile
