Janet Simpson — Woman's handbag scam
My wife put up a bag for sale on craigslist and throughout the day 'janet' emailed her back and forth stating that she would use [protected]@gmail.com for a money request towards paypal.
here's the text from the email:
The price is affordable to me. Do you have PayPal account concerning the payment? if you have you can send money request to [protected]@gmail.com for me to make the payment today.i would like to add $30 for the shipment cost via Canada Post.below is the mailing address
167 New Gower Street
P.O. Box 908
St. John's, NL
so let me know your decision.
I'm glad that I searched out the address and that scamchecker already had posted some info re the addy.
Thankfully no money was sent and correspondence was terminated.
