I was scamed by a person claiming she was leaving for Iraq. Only to find out that after I sent the money she wanted $2000.00 more for shipping. I reported this to the local Sheriff's Dept., called the Attorney General's office. The Local sheriff took my report. The Attorney General told me that there was nothing they could do to help. The name of the person I was buying a Kawasaki Mule off of, was Christine Robinson at <[email protected] m>. Maybe you with this information you can post it to stop someone else from being scamed by this person. Or anyone else posting that the reason they are selling something is because they are in the Military and are being shipped overseas. Linda

I am so glad to see this. While i haven't actually been victimized to the point of losing money, I did receive a check in the mail for nearly $3,000. The sender requested that I deposit the check and wire money to another person. I became suspicious and did not deposit the check. I received e-mails after about 10 days threatening me with the FBI if I did not wire the funds. I filed a complaint with the Ohio atty. general and the FTC. I forwarded this info. to the man who sent the check to me. I have not heard from him since. I receive e-mails daily (more than one) stating that I have won lotteries in the UK, and all around the world. It's amazing how these guys try to scam people out of their hard earned money, and work so dilligently at it. I hope that this site will help to reduce or even eliminate it.
you need to do something

You need to install some filtering to keep that spam out of your mailbox. Anything like that goes directly into the trash without me ever seeing it.

All of those so called penny auctions are a rip off. You need to learn you don't get something for nothing.

You rule Klink!! If it's too good to be true it is. If you didn't earn it, it's not real. Words to live by but the site is a great idea.

The sad thing is I don't think you're joking. If you had 8 kids and a deformed toe or a fear of working they'd ask where to send the check!

It's pretty simple folks.
If you are being offered something of value for little or no effort/cost on your part,it is a scam.

We get scammed all the time. Not just on a computer, by t.v.,mail,friends/family,insur ance,i.r.s., work and the government. If some dumb e-mail can get you, then i hate to see what other things you fall for.
