@crystalgrissom:  You are not the first and won’t be the last. This is a well known scam. The basic lesson is if you are selling something, you don’t send any money anywhere to anyone.

The buyer sends the money and only by secure means of payment.

Do you accept Atlantis money?
Because they don’t use PayPal at the bottom of the sea.

The same person e-mailed me as well about her agent! I also saw the e-mail listed on a scammer website this morning and a bunch of olivimark e-mail addresses that have been deactivated.

Ok, as SOON as i responded, from my stinking email address, no less! I was like, who wants to buy a wedding dress, and doesnt even ask the size, or more pictures?  What all bad is going to happen to me since the jack butt has my email? Life hacked? Identity stolen? Credit cards jacked? Life savings wiped out?  If only id googled the email before my excitement went crazy…

Can weddingbee please start like a rolling list of e-mails who have tried to scam people. Because I have received more than one and only found out they were scams, when I saw them listed here ANNNNNNND on the internet. Had I not decided to check, I could have been in a bad situation.

Ugh…this scam has been around for ever!  I tried to sell a car on Craigslist in like 2005 someone tried to scam me with this same scheme.  Again, wanted to buy the car sight unseen, and was going to send an “agent” to deal with the money via Western Union. I hate scammers!
