Hello everyone, I haven't been on these forum very much (I'm Dutch, so I check out the Dutch forum more often), but I still wanted to warn you for the following: About 2 weeks ago I sold my Lakland 44-01 with ChiSonics to a man in New Jersey. He was talking about using paypal, so it seemed safe. Also his English was OK and he would pay me 820 Euro's including shipment costs. A day later 'PayPal' e-mailed me that I received the 820 Euro's, but I wouldn't be able to use it untill I gave them the Track & Trace code from the shipment. This sounded quite logical to me, so I send the bass to New Yersey and gave 'PayPal' the code. A week later I got another e-mail from Aaron Martinez (the scammer) via 'PayPal', which you can see under this text (Don't mind the 'Robbert' he is my friend who helped me with PayPal, my name is Cas). Remarkable was how his English turned from normal to bad. Also he said 'The Lakland' or 'the bass' in his other mails, this time it was 'the goods'. Next I got this mail from 'PayPal' Here they're talking about WESTERN UNION, which is used by most scammers. Something was VERY wrong. And last but not least: That's just ******** (excuse me). What all started with normal e-mails in normal English, ended with this. Robbert noticed that all the 'PayPal' mails came from the adress; firstname.lastname@example.org., usually this should be email@example.com (Notice that there's no dot behind the real PayPal adress: it should be just .com instead of .com. ). Several site's told us that this is done in many scam's. I probably lost my bass, which means I lost my money I've been busy all day trying to get the package back or the money, nothing seems to work. I've called TNT, USPS, Summit's Post Office, Summit's Police Office... If there's anyone on this forum who can help me, please!!
