- Wedding: August 2010
I am selling my wedding dress and have it posted in several places, one being craigslist. Here is a copy of a back and forth email I received regarding the dress….what do you guys think. Is this a scammer? Am I being paranoid about giving out my bank account number? Read it from bottom to top….
Pls i beg you to sell to me. Its my company that is paying you by bank transfer, i dont have any other way to pay. If i did, i would have paid you the way you wanted. I dont have the cash. Its my company that is paying for me they are owing me the money, and they only want to send it to the recipients account in cash. I asked if they do email money transfers because i know thats faster and safer. All they need is send the funds to your email address and it gets to your bank account when you have the password to access it. But they dont do email money transfers they bank with one of Canada’s credit unions so they are not setup to do email money transfer, so reconsider my conditions and wave all doubts off your mind. Please i dont know what else to say, pls sell to me.Mrs Gwen Blue.

From: Subject: RE: Jai wedding dress – $650 (Winnipeg)To: Date: Thursday, September 23, 2010, 4:28 PMYou are a total scammer. I would never, ever, give you or anyone, my bank account information. You need to be careful, karma’s a bitch, you deserve what you get and I hope you get caught. I will be sending this to the authorities. You don’t even watch what you are saying in your emails…..firstly, yes you can hurt me by knowing my bank account number and address and name and I know it…..and you state that you would like to use it in your new place ?!?!?!? IT’S A WEDDING DRESS….what are you going to do? Hang it on the wall for decoration?? You obviously don’t plan to use it yourself, do you MRS. Gwen Blue?? Paypal is a very well known, secure method of transaction for both the seller and the buyer, so why are you so scared? You seem to ignore that and never mention it but keep going on about me giving you my bank account info. You mention that craigslist stated that Western Union, money gram, cashier’s check, money order, shipping, and escrow services are scams…….did you forget to mention that in that statement from craigslist they also state to never give out your bank account information. There are a lot of bad people in this world and its a pity that people like you exist. If I was naive enough to go ahead with this and you scammed me, it would affect my life profoundly….I wish you had a conscience. Hopefully one day you will feel some of the pain that I am sure you have caused others. You are evil.

I understand what you are saying and I would have loved to come and buy it in person and pay cash. But we are in the process of moving to the US this week. And we will like to use it in our new place. You will have to confirm payment in your account before you tell me to talk about shipping. So please sell to me. I will have my company in the Canada transfer the payment into your bank account. There is no need to be pessimistic about it. I cant do anything with your bank account and you know it. You are the only one that has access to your bank account. I can not go to your bank with my ID and tell them i will want to withdraw money from another person’s account. So why are you scared. My company will send the money to your account once you send the info over. So let me know what you want to do.Thanks,Mrs Gwen Blue.

I will however not give out my bank account information. I can send you an invoice through paypal and once I receive confirmation of payment, I will let you know and then I will give you the information you need to send UPS (I will need something from them to state that the items were picked up and that you received them – tracking number) to pick up the dress and veil.Let me know if you are interested. This is the only secure way to make sure this is a legitimate transaction. I am a little concerned that you would need my bank account information. Let me know if you would like me to send the invoice through paypal.Thanks again.

Thanks for the mail. Yes i am interested, and I will like to buy. Its just that i will be moving to the US this week so phone lines have been disconnected, also i will like the items shipped with my UPS account to the address i am moving to. So if that is your last selling price, i will take it. You dont need to bother about shipping. I will ask UPS to come and pick it up at your location. You wont need to pay anything. And my company will deposit the funds directly into your bank account Since criagslist stated that Western Union, Money Gram, cashier’s check, money order, shipping, escrow service are scam. So let me know which you will prefer.Thanks,Mrs Gwen Blue.

From: Subject: RE: Jai wedding dress – $650 (Winnipeg)To: Date: Wednesday, September 22, 2010, 3:16 PMHi.Yes the dress is still for sale. I was married August 28 this year and we are saving for a honeymoon that we never got to take, so I am selling all my wedding decorations and the dress (plus I plan to never marry again and the dress will just hang in the closet so I think that someone else will be able to look and feel like a princess on their wedding day too!). The dress is in great condition. I wore it once for about 4 hours. There is a small mark on the bottom tier of the dress that is covered by the tier above it so you can’t see it unless you are looking for it. I love this dress. It is very light and flowing and I received many compliments on it. It is very unique and not a copy but an authentic Jai International wedding gown. It will come in a garment bag and I am including my veil which I never wore (1 tier fingertip with beaded edging). I would not let my dress go for less than $580 (plus shipping which shouldn’t be too much as it is not a heavy dress depending on where you are from) and will only accept paypal payment prior to shipping. Thank you for your interest.
