Nigerian Scammers.... The Washing Machine Edition


This is  the shit that pisses me off. 

I put an add on craigslist yesterday for our used washing machine.

Simple, concise to the point. "HERE".

With in an hour I get this from a Bob Moore:

Hi there, just want to know if you still have the item up for sale. 

I reply:

Forward me your cell if you like and I will call you when I get a chance.

Then I get this:


Thanks for the response.I am okay with the condition and price of the
item and am
willing to add extra $20 so you could keep it in my favor. I'll be paying
with a Check via next day delivery.

I'll be responsible for the pick-up and the movers/pick up money will
be included in your payment to avoid delay and to enable movers to
schedule an appropriate time for the pick-up at your location after check has
been cashed,as i have other properties to be moved alongside with yours.

I would have really love to come for the viewing but due to my work frame
that might not be possible. kindly get back to me with your full name and
address including your cell and land number so i can make out payment to
I believe this is based on trust.


I responded back with a picture of "GOATSE"

( if you don't know what that is I warn you DO NOT GOOGLE IT...its not for the faint of heart)
