- Wedding: September 2014
Just a friendly beware – I received a note from someone claiming to be interested in the veil i posted in the classifieds here on weddingbee. I sent them more pictures of the item as they requested and got the below response:
“Thanks for your reply concerning my inquiry and i am very sorry for the late reply. I am quite comfortable with the price and the condition of the item but due to the nature of my health, I can not make or receive phone call as I am Impaired. I will be adding $100 to the purchase price… I want you to hold it for me before any other interested person. Please provide your full name, Address and your Phone number so that I can send your payment. I will be paying you by Certified check. It will take 2 -3 days for the payment to get to you…As for delivery, I will make arrangements for the pick-up after you have received payment,If this meets your approval, kindly get back to me, as soon as possible, with your name, phone # and mailing address where payment will be sent, so that I can make a arrangement on the Check.As soon as you have your money in hand, we can talk about the picking up of the item. I would like you to take the posting off market place today”
this is obviously a scam – i plugged the whole email into google and got tons of “do not trust” listings. The number is +1(915) 247-5539, and the email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. Just wanted to make sure none of you fell prey to this!
