You know what? I’ve received an email from weddingbee – a so called member, but when I logged into the site, there were no messages?? I just never thought anything of it.

I’m been trying to sell on wedding bee, craigslist, oncewed too, and have gotten numerous scam buyers, you can usually tell if it’s a scam, all of mine are “i want to buy your dress NOW, what’s your full name and full address so I can send you a check” uhm first of all if someone is seriously buying a wedding dress, they should ask me like a million questions and ask me for like a million pictures before they committ…so all my responses to those were “i only accept paypal” and then i don’t hear from them ever again.

I’ve gotten a scam very recently for a dress I have posted on OnceWed as well.  At first I thought it was legit, then they started saying how’d they’d only pay with a cashiers check.  I told then nope, PayPal ONLY about a dozen times and they finally stopped emailing me.

Ugh, it was frustrating.

We were selling a buffet/hutch on Craigslist and had this happen. Some guy contacted my Fiance and siad that he was out of town but was willing to pay us more than asking price and he would send us a cashier’s check and come pick up the hutch when they got back. Then he called my Fiance again and said that he sent a check for a lot more and would we cash it and get him the change. ??? I laughed when I opened the check. It was the most fake lokking thing I’d ever seen. My Fiance stopped taking the calls from that # and we haven’t been bothered since.

SanDiego- I had the same thing happen. All they would do was a cashiers that she kept saying she would deposit into my account. Yeah, umm…NO!

Thank you so much for the heads up 🙂 I just posted my dress on OnceWed and it helps me so much to be aware of scams such as these!

Thanks again, I appreciate your honesty!

Hi Ladies!

I just got an email from ‘Anne’ who is interseted in my dress. @j.grossman13 could it be the same Anne???

I want to believe Anne is real and wants to buy my dress.

It is a size 6 she wants to alter it down to a size 2

She immediatly asks if I can use Escrow payment rather than Paypal (i specified paypal only in the listing)

Her email address is “mcash1509[at]yahoo.com

mcash??? that doesnt sound like an email I would have… THOUGHTS?

I have had 4 scam emails already but this one seems the closest to real yet.

Told me she was getting married in two weeks in paris and offered a certified check to cover the dress and moving company. Then when i recieved no check she asked for my bank account info to wire money into it then signed the email a completely total name than the 24 emails i had from her.
