Interesting morning Monsieur Scammer!

As I am preparing my big move back to Sweden, I’ve been selling and getting rid of my stuff. Tedious as it is to try to only fit a few things in a box to avoid crazy shipping cost, sacrifices had to be made. All furniture had to go. While I met a whole lot of nice and interesting people. I experienced several people who made an appointment and never showed up. I assume that people do that because they want me to sit and wait for them all evening and waiting for them to show up. So I made a rule on my posts that if they don’t show up during the appointed time,  that the item will be placed up for sale again.

Now I am down to selling electronics we wont be bringing with us. Amongst those things I’ve put up a camera for sale. Its a Canon T-50 with several accessories and a decent lens. I woke up this morning and got a poorly written email. I responded as I always do and thought not much of it, but the respond raised an eyebrow with me. Turns out I was right to be suspicious. A scammer! Nice try!

I’ve already taken all measures I could to alert Craigslist, so hopefully this guy wont have enough time to do any harm to the poor unsuspecting people who don’t have my spidey senses! Putting awareness on my blog might help other people who suspects fowl play!

Remember, if its too good to be true, it probably is!

Stay safe!
