Ha ha. I posted something on craigslist so I am getting tons of emails. I collect the fake checks that they send. If all happens, I should have about 8 coming in the mail. I love having them send me fake checks with their own money and then send them a picture of all the ones I collect. Or some will convince you to take a fake check and give you a shipping label for what you are selling, so they will get your item free. Paying for a box of rocks is a kind "gotcha".
So many scams are made by and for the religious. Makes sense when you think about it. Salt Lake City has had the dubious distinction of being the scam capital of the United States for years, but I think they passed the title on recently.
Oh, thank you! I am going to have fun there! :)
I have been reading a lot of them, hilarious! I am hoping to get some photos. I never thought of that.
