Topic: beware of scammer PM you to deal and arrange shipment

Posted on: 15th Jan 2018 7:48 AM    Quote and Reply

Recently I received offer for 2 items ads that I post for sell. This playrainbow2 request me to email him at ba3220433@gmail.com. I replied only cash deal and please SMS me then he didn't reply. After few days he post the same message to the other item that I posted too. I think this is scammer who targeting around for desperate seller.

I saw his joined date is recently 16 Jan 2018. So I go to google and did some searching, many online seller feedback they received and email reply with attachment of invoice. after clicking it will bring you to fake google login page and that's how some careless people will enter their password and thus the account will be hack.

So seller please beware and don't feel happy too early as someone interested to buy your items.

Thanks for the headsup!! I just received a few buy requests too.

Hope Togoparts can Ban his account to prevent further soliciting to trap innocent people.

I got this scammer before email address look similar but changed nick.


if you go all the way, ended in paypal which you send the payment request to them.
and he will reply to you that he had done the payment.
you will not see that payment until he receive the item which he claims is under USA paypal law.

I stop my transaction there and blocked him.


Do what u deem is correct and be responsible on your own actions

And the PayPal email goes like this. Be v wary of this motherless fcker. 


Dear Valued Customer,

Payments by PayPalYou have an Instant Payment of SG:$112 from (ba3220433@gmail.com) to your Paypal account (xxxxxx@yahoo.com.sg)


This PayPal Payment has been deducted from the buyer's account but can not be credited into your account until you send us shipment confirmation E.G Tracking Number or a copy of the Shipment Receipt.


You can now go and ship out the buyer's merchandise and send the tracking number to us.

PayPal will only release payment when you bought something on eBay and upon received the item you give a positive feedback then the money will credited to seller account.

If buyer straight send money from his PayPal to your account it will be credit immediately. No need to wait as there isn't involve any online retailer transaction.

If you really ship item to other counter make sure send by registered post with tracking only. Cause if buyer report he never receive the package and insist asking for refund PayPal will refund it to buyer if you cannot prove the delivery.

His/Her msg, is always the same:
Hi! Is it still for sale? Email me to ba320432@gmail.com"> ba320432@gmail.com to schedule meet up or shipment.

And he/she never replied my PMs. Extremely doggy.

The msg set off alarms!
