My friend and I have been looking to buy a couple of bikes and we are running into a lot of escrow scammers on craigs list. Anyone have any ideas on how to bait them. They are sending emails from UK ip addresses.

Thanks,

Fletch444

Have received an email this morning offering to buy a motorcycle we are selling. It all sounded a bit iffy, especially as they are offering more than the advertised price (of 2600) and no questions just asking for more pictures. So started looking around and found this site. Here is a copy of the message we got this morning. We are in Ireland and the phone number is from Worcester in the UK, mobile. Obviously not a native English speaker either, email name is Pollock Schnabel. Confusing as it is the other way round, we are selling.

Subject: RE: bike for sale

Thanks for the response,I'm satisfied with the condition of the Item.And i will take the item for 2,756EUR including PayPal Sub charges since i am interested in the immediate purchase.I just moved to the United Kingdom,where this is needed and i will be making use of a shipping company to have this picked up from you and have it delivered to me.Further arrangements will be made with you in regards to the pick up once i have paid you.I would appreciate if you email me with more pictures (if available) too since i won't be be able to see this in person,So do get back to me with the details below so that i could proceed with the payment:

Name:
PayPal Email address
Cell Phone No:

i will go ahead with the payment through PayPal and if you don't have an account with paypal, you can just visit, <http://www.paypal.com> and sign up for an account with your e-mail.

Kindly get back to me as soon as possible so that we could finalize this transaction.

I wait to read from you soon.

Anybody got any ideas, we have yet to reply.

The best thing to do is report it and then delete it. Do not reply to the scammers.
