Craiglist/ TNT / SCAM
OMG Thanks to everyone for posting about this huge scam on Craigslist.com.
I almost fall for it myself. Check it out...
> The MacBook Pro is still available, but I'm currently in London, United Kingdom. Because of the financial crisis, I lost my job in United States and I had to come back to my family.
> I don't need the laptop anymore so I tried to sell it locally, but with no luck. I was offered silly money for the laptop because of issues like - it is a US version or the warranty doesn't work here or that it has a US keyboard format. That's why I'm trying my luck in the US.
> I hope you are still interested. The laptop was bought brand new from Best Buy a 10 weeks ago. I have attached some pics with it to this email.
> About the laptop I can say it is 10 weeks old and it is in good shape, no scratches, no dents as you can see from the pics I've sent. Included in the $580 price is everything the laptop came with when it was new, including the original manuals and warranty papers. The warranty is fully transferable to the new owner.
> The laptop is here with me in UK.
> I tried to be as thorough as I could with the presentation so you can have all the info if you decide to go ahead and buy it.
> Please get back to me and let me know if you like the laptop if you're really interested in buying it.
> I will attach pics with serial number and purchase receipt to this email.
> Well, I found a way to sell the laptop that will be safe for both of us. It's a worldwide delivery company called TNT. They have a service that will allow you to test the laptop before I receive my payment.
> Please go to the TNT website below and read their procedure so we can be on the same page:
> I will pay the TNT shipping fee.
> If you agree to their terms please send me your name and address and I will start the delivery procedure.
Can't believe I almost fall for this crap. When its too good to be true, thats because it is...
