Anyone get an email from Mr Peter Williams?

Post by Kristal on Sun Aug 21, 2011 12:34 pm

I COULD just be paranoid because I can't see how this would be a scam, but it reads like one, what with the introduction at the beginning and bunk format with the no spaces after periods etc.

How many non-fp's know the sizes of our pots?! Reads funny.

Am I being paranoid? Is it okay to write back? I'm not even a vendor!

Attn:Owner,

I Am Mr. Peter Williams,I would like to order Blue Face and Body Paint 90g.Let me know if you do have it and if you don't have this specifications inform me of the ones of you have in stock and what are the size you carry.What would be the total Price for one including taxes and without shipping charges?What types of payments do you accept?Thank you and waiting for your reply asap.

Regards,
Peter Williams.

Guarantee you would have received a repy something along these lines:

I, Mr. Peter Williams, would like to order 100 pots of paint and will gladly send you check for five thousand dollars more than total.Send only two thousand five hundred back to me via Western Union and keep the rest!

Must scare people behind you in line at the store!

Once at the bank I almost had a heart attack when the guy behind me had his phone suddenly ring, LOUD, with Darth Vader's theme... I mustve jumped two feet

Yes Kristal - I got the email this morning!
Exactly the same as yours and I don't even sell paint!
It's definitely a scam.
They never seem to tire of finding creative ways of ripping people off....

He gets around fast, eh? Razz

What would we do without scammers trying to trip us up? Probably be too optimistic and not jaded and skeptical enough. This keeps us balanced Razz

Indeed a scam -simply delete. The words used alone can tip you off to that.
I received this in a mailbox not related to his so called inquiry.

I did, today.

Thanks to you (this post), I simply trashed it without opening it up.

Now, to get rid of the last few craigslist nuts that keep sending me the latest/greatest/getrichquick deals of a lifetime!!
