Beware of a Scam

Just and FYI for members on an experience I had recently. I had 2 bows for sale here and on another site. I get an email from a fellow asking me if the bow was still for sale. I answered back asking him which one as I had 2 for sale.

Hey then inquires about both and asks for pictures when I had them up already but OK emailed them off. The fellow explained he was a US person working right now in the UK for a gas and oil company. He emails me back saying he will take both bows, one for him and one a a co-worker wants. Seemed a little fishy too quick a sale, did not ask any questions as most do etc etc. He asked for my address as he was going to send a US Money order to me and even arrange to have the bows picked up and shipped himself when all had cleared.

I waited a good month with no payment and an email once a week only as he claimed he was out of the office asking me if the payment arrived etc. Well after a month I was tired of that and sold the bows to others and emailed him saying I had been more than patient and the bows were now gone. Since that email I have never heard from him since which prooves 110% is was a scam. If he was real he would have been contacting me as the money was sent right ? RIGHT !. and would have wanted it back.

Just beware people as there are still scammers out there. His emails came in under the name Steve Sandler and email address [email protected]

Thats a pretty common scam. Some ask you to send the stuff before they even pay. I post stuff on craigslist all the time, and get those messages daily, you just learn to pick them out and now I just send them a big nasty word.

If you want a good laugh, I highly suggest you read this
Too funny. Wonder what happened when he opened the box.lmao
