Another one who bought a pricy items (over $1500) from my store and want it to be shipped in Nigeria...

They really take us for granted... They send fake Paypal emails saying that the fund will available when the item is received, they offer to over pay by $300 for shipping etc...

I don't understand why they still use Nigeria ... everyone knows that every email related to Nigeria is scam...

That's the second one for March already...

How many do you get?

Well its possible that the scammers are still getting alot of people with thier scams.

Everyone and thier mother is trying to sell on ebay. That means uneducated nitwitts that have no clue about the dangers of fraud and scammers accorss the internet. They will learn the hard way. Albeit sad but its the truth.

They won't stop trying until people stop falling for it. Unfortunately they're still making a good living from scamming people online.

Its a sad thing but I doubt it will ever end. There are too many evils in this world and too many desperate fools for them to rip off. I know that sounds mean but its a horrible truth. :(

enough of this nigerian scammer, how about UK scammer (not all)? i was scammed by this company who has a membership in alibaba.com and was hailed from UK. ever heard of JONES COMMS LIMITED? CEO - Becky Jones and Sales Manager - Scott Atkinson? they even have this fake telephone number registered in alibaba and to think that they are UK DATA LTD registered company (with registration number 06138278). what a shame :evil:

if anyone knows this scam artist or where to contact them, please email me at Link hidden: Login to view. it`s really a huge help to trace them. they owe me($730 bucks). thank you very much. :D

^interesting you mention that, because from my experience the UK is the most scammiest per capita..i have had so many clever scam attempts from UKers, nearly every UK company on alibaba is a scam. UK, Nigeria, Indonesia, China, Ukraine, those are the big ones. However, I have dealt with companies from those regions that are completely legit. You really just have to know how to spot a scam, which gets easier with experience. ...

A few Nigerians do legit business with these crooks why can't you join them? I use my UK presence to frogmarch my goods to my physical store in Nigeria where they and their likes come to spend recklessly knowing some Westerners will buy any story to make a fast buck.
