be careful ladies. i sold a dress in the past and had it advertised on oncewed.com and almost fell for a scam then i have seen posted on here many times before.
but this is a new one so i thought i would put it out as a warning – although it was quite obvious and hopefully no one would actually fall for it! it is also from oncewed.com
hello am David am from UK i saw your wedding dress for sale and i will be pleased if you can sell it out for me,i want to buy it for my daughter who is celebrating her wedding soon,please get back to me with the final asking price and as for payment i will be paying you via certified check or credit card money transfer please get back to me if this is okay for you..thanks so much

@dynamic_duo:Yikes! I’m glad you didn’t fall for it. After my wedding I plan to sell mine through an eBay listing. <3 Good luck selling it!

@dynamic_duo: ummmm… that’s from someone in the UK? Are we talking born in the UK or immigrated, cause that sounds like some of the Chinese emails I’ve got from trying to get a price quote and from the listings on ebay!!! (We won’t mention the typical phishing emails about the 50k that will be sent to me from some arabian prince if I send ’em all my info… lol)
yeah, obvious scammer. I’d have more believability if it were from the woman!

@Zinzerena: totally, and there is an inquiry email from a woman that i received once when i was selling my first dress…and i saw people on here post it as a warning. she says her fiance will send a check, then supposedly he sends to too much, blah blah blah
the one i received today was a new one that i hadn’t heard about before.
i am tempted to write back and have him send the check and see what happens…

Oh I got so many of those. Anytime I see the words “certified check” I hit delete automatically and I don’t even bother to read through the bad English. I also forward the email to oncewed.com or powd.com so they can add the person to their list of known scammers.
I also always add “NO CHECKS!!! ESCROW.COM ONLY! SCAMMERS NEED NOT BOTHER” to my craigslist ad which cuts down the number of those annoying emails.

I just posted one that I got too and I definitely now think mine was a scam too! I have never heard any one in the U.S. use “be chanced”
