JUNK MAIL SCAM


I advertised a cellphone in the junkmail. Kelvin Parker called, said he needed the phone urgently for his son's birthday, and will deposit the money immediately. I got conformation from his Nedbank by sms, and gave him the phone. It was a scam, the money was never in my acciount.

    Advertised a golf cart in Junkmail for R28000. Person transfered the money EFT but found out to late that it was not EFT. They picked up the golf cart with a Hyundai pick up and I took the number plate number down just to find out that the number does not exist.

    Thanks Zoey It was pretty obvious its a scam but got Messaged by (janiceallison01@gmail.com) .Gave him false information(account that does not exist) so if a real payment was made the bank would have told him the account does not work.I then got an email saying payment has been made.This is impossible since it is a non existing bank account.Steer Clear

    I advertised a netbook on Junkmail..Got a few responses..One I went for was Janice Allison email address janiceallison01@gmail.com "bought" my netbook through paypal...they have a fraudulent email address for paypal..Michael James and Usman Abiose in Nigeria are in cahoots..can someone stop this person? If someone contacts me I can tell more, I see this name is all over, it has been going on for months? "Janice Allison" just mailed me to tell me sorry I have been scammed. I needed to pay around R500 out of my pocket to sent this netbook and I would have received the money with the money for the netbook. Then I had to pay another R2000 to "clear" the money, into this Usman Abiose name..and the netbook was sent to Michael James at 29 Jinadu Street, Ijeshatedo Surulere LAGOS, 23401 Nigeria.

    Hi Guys, Received a email from Janice Allison from junckmail yesterday to say she really want to buy my video camera and she will pay extra R1000 for the shipping she will pay the money immediatley through pay pal. She kept on insisting to send her the shipping no. Told me the whole bull about her son being abroad and she needs it deseparetly for her son. What bothered me iis why will you pay so much for a item that you can just go and buy at the shop. Even I told her I want R3000.00 she still would have said she wants it, immediatley that raised a red flag. Be careful guys these people are con artist to the T.

    Hi guys, thank you very much. I advertised my phone today and i just got a call from a guy claiming to want to buy it for his girlfriend. He said he would pay me extra if I delivered it to Wits university and he would do a bank transfer. Also got an email from janiceallison01@gmail.com claiming interest in the phone. Thanks for the info, will keep my eyes open for these con artists.

  • Nadine3 30 May 2011, 03:40 PM

    I have recieved feedback through junkmail from this email address: 442mendez@gmail.com. This person's name is Josh. He lives in Nigeria. I am selling dresses on junkmail and he wanted to buy one and transfer the money for me. I live in South Africa so the transfer was going to be international. I said as soon as i get the cleared payment i wil send him the dress via mail. I then recieved an email from America bank stating that het paid in the money but i first have to send the dress shipping info to the bank so that thay can proceed to paying me the money. There i realised that it was all just a scam so watch out for this guy.
