TNTterrible service!

'TNT'You have been sent a link to view a [redacted] posted on TNT Shipping Sony Vaio Laptop, 2.0 GHz Core 2 Duo, 2 GB Ram, Mint Condition - $520 Wolverhampton.
Hello. I was stupid enough to fall for the same deal. Only it was a tv. A Panasonic 50' Plasma TV for $500... A woman by the name of Michelle Scott soft soaped me. But it at the same address and thr so called TNT agents name is Jonathan Williams. 214 Bowery St., Wolverhampton.S22 ITF ,UK. I am not in good health and I have to say this has really set me back. I have tried numerous times to contact TNT. to no avail. I did however send a certified check instead of Western Union the way they wanted, and I sent it registered mail. I hope that might be some help. The sad part is I felt it was wrong from the start. I hope someone can help us. I am on a VERY limited income. Thanks to anyone who reads this.

    This is about TNT Hong Kong, our order shipped from Hong Kong to Riyadh by express service but the sales of TNT Hong Kong change it by economic servise, and that results our order stoped by customs in Bahrain, and our order delay 3 more weeks, that means if sent by express, good can be received within 1 week, but actually it takes 1 months. we lost our customer.

    TNT Hong Kong should take responsibility.

    TNT has been altering their wiki page and removing anything negative said about them, if you have been ripped off by them go into the history of the wiki page and repost the previous accounts and references - especially this one

    "Disputes: TNT Express, according to the Better Business Bureau, [8] has multiple claims of attempts to collect nonexisting customs duty charges from individuals. Invoices are sent in the mail after delivery with badly legible documents that are declared to be copies of customs documents. Other delivery services when collecting true customs duties will hold your item or package until the charges are paid. Invoices provide a telephone number for inquires originating in Mississauga, ON for the Duty Collections Department which is not staffed. TNT Express is not accredited by the Better Business Bureau."

    they keep removing this entry
    you can see for yourself and check the references in the history of the page - I don't think they can get at those, if they could they would erase them
    been ripped off? do something about it, this company needs a smack with the god stick, repost all the negative evidence and ask wikipedia to lock it so they cannot remove it
    cheers

    Hi,

    Well, I found a way to sell you the ipad that will cover the both of us. It's a worldwide delivery company called TNT. They have a service that will allow you to test the ipad before I receive my payment.
    Please go to the TNT website below and read their procedure so we can be on the same page:

    http://ukwt-tnt.com/tnt.express.wolverhampton.depot.overseas.transactions/

    I will pay the TNT shipping fee and I can use 2 day delivery if you are in a hurry.

    Thanks.

    I almost fell for it too! Thanks for everyone's posts here I saved $580 (for a supposedly 10 week old MacBook Pro). Here's what she sent me.

    First Response:
    "Hi,

    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.

    Thanks,
    Bianca"

    Second Response:
    "Hi,
    I will attach the pics to this mail.
    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.

    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.

    Thanks,
    Bianca"

    My Final Response:
    "Bianca",

    Well, since you didn't provide me proof of purchase, the warranty expiration date doesn't match when you said you purchased, and of course because there are TONS of complaints about this very scam, I'm going to have to pass. It's too bad too because during my research I came across another company that could help you, me and a host of other people out. This company is called The Police. Since I'm a nice person, I went ahead and forwarded these emails to them, at no expense to you. If you would like further information, and to confirm this transaction please follow this link:

    http://www.consumerfraudreporting.org/feedback.htm

    Thanks and God Bless!


    I got the pics I requested and checked the serial number on Apple.com. First flag (aside from intuition) was that the warranty expiration date didn't match when she told me she purchased it. Thanks again for everyone's posts and saving me. I'll just save for some months and buy from Apple Store.

    I fell for the same scam.

    from the same person too, this 'Arianna'

    My was for a 46" sony bravia hd tv.

    I just sent the money yesterday, so now im [censor]ed.

    Is there anything I can do?

    Here are the first two emails, In the first email she sent pictures too so i thought it was legit. I cant believe i fell for this.

    Hi, I am getting back to you regarding the 46" Sony LCD, 1080p full HDTV from Craigslist

    My name is Arianna and I am now in Torino, Italy.
    I am selling the 46" Sony LCD, 1080p, full HDTV, 120 Mhz for $370 USD. I have attached some pics so you can see the condition of the TV.
    The TV is still available and I hope you are still interested.This TV was ordered brand new 4 months ago.
    About the TV I can say it is 4 months old and it is in good shape, no scratches, no dents as you can see from the pics I've sent. Included in the $370 price is everything the TV came with when it was new, including the original manuals and warranty papers. The TV still has warranty for the next 20 months. The warranty is fully transferable to the new owner.
    The TV is here with me in Italy.
    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.
    I have used the TV mostly for the news and movies, so I would say it has been only lightly used.
    One more thing, the TV is an US version and it works on the US power and plug system so you do not need a converter to use it in the US.

    Please get back to me and let me know if you like the TV if you're really interested in buying it.

    Thanks,

    She's also selling it on Craigslist/Atlanta. Thanks for the heads up, guys. I first googled the restaurant in B-ham, UK. Then googled the its name pluse "chef." Another chef's name popped up, so I googled just her name and got this web site. Something wasn't right...MacBook Pros with this configuration begin in the $900 range and even then are being snapped up the day they appear. Be careful out there!

    Thank you to all who posted. I as well almost fell for this scam today. I received a similar email from Arianna Edwards <[email protected]>. Promising a 46in tv for 350. It states:

    The only reason I checked this out is because the TNT website doesn't have any contact info other than an email address. And if you read the instructions it tells you to pay first, then get the product later. So shady. I also thought it was a little too good to be true that someone would offer to pay international shipping fees. I just can't believe that they have been doing this for at least two years now! It's amazing that they haven't been caught.

    Thank you all for contributing to this thread. It saved me from getting scammed!!! I got pretty hyped up about getting a MacBook Pro for $400. Something was " too good to be true" so I googled "Susan Thompson" and found this site.

    Here is the ad from Craiglist-Albany, NY that I responded to:

    Did some research regarding these scammers and have totally been [censor]ing with the person and wasting their time knowing they're a scammer after 3 minutes of googling. 2 seconds after googling their address I ended up here.

    Anyway, I did my absolute best to find out if this scammer has some semblance of a conscience by telling them that the TV I was buying from them would be for a kids' leukemia ward at a hospital.

    They still didn't even flinch at scamming me.

    Read the entire exchange (so far) below:

    -------------------------

    Scammer:

    Hi, I am getting back to you regarding the 46" Sony LCD, 1080p full HDTV from Craigslist

    My name is Arianna and I am now in Wolverhampton, United Kingdom.
    I am selling the 46" Sony LCD, 1080p, full HDTV, 120 Mhz for $350 USD. I have attached some pics so you can see the condition of the TV.
    The TVis still available and I hope you are still interested.This TV was ordered brand new 4 months ago.
    About the TV I can say it is 4 months old and it is in good shape, no scratches, no dents as you can see from the pics I've sent. Included in the $350 price is everything the TV came with when it was new, including the original manuals and warranty papers. The TV still has warranty for the next 20 months. The warranty is fully transferable to the new owner.
    The TV 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.
    I have used the TV mostly for the news and movies, so I would say it has been only lightly used.
    One more thing, the TV is an US version and it works on the US power and plug system so you do not need a converter to use it in the US.

    Please get back to me and let me know if you like the TV if you're really interested in buying it.

    Thanks,
    Arianna


    --------------------------

    Me:

    How much will it cost to ship?

    I was searching in the Philadelphia area because i wanted one from somewhere close by.

    --------------------------

    Scammer:

    Hi,

    I found a way to sell you the TV that will cover the both of us. It's a worldwide delivery company called TNT. They have a service that will allow you to test the TV before I receive my payment.
    Please go to the TNT website below and read their procedure so we can be on the same page:

    http://eu-tnt.com/tnt.express.wolverhampton.depot.overseas.transactions/

    I will pay the TNT shipping fee.

    Thanks.

    --------------------------

    Me:

    Okay, that's very reassuring and I'm on board.

    Why are you selling this tv, by the way?

    Here is my address:


    (fake, anyway)

    --------------------------

    Me:

    Now that I've given it some thought, I'd actually prefer that it be delivered to my work place, since that's ultimately where I'll be taking the television anyway.

    Wayne Memorial Hospital
    ATTN: [My name]
    Special Care Unit
    601 Park Street
    Honesdale, PA 18431

    I'm so relieved that you made the suggestion to protect both of us by using a third party. I've been scammed before and just really want to take precautions, y'know?

    I work in the special care unit as a resident caretaker and I have to tell you the leukemia-stricken youngsters at Wayne Memorial Hospital are going to absolutely love that they'll have such a fantastic tv to watch their cartoons on. They very rarely are given the opportunity to experience fun. You are truly a saint for offering this TV at such a low price. I don't know how much you paid, but you must be taking a significant loss since this television retails for nearly $1000. I can't believe I found such a good deal.

    I only wish you were able to be here to see the smiles on these kids faces when we're able to show them their favorite episodes of Spongebob and their other nickelodeon and disney favorites

    Let's get this taken care of ASAP! I can't wait to surprise them all!

    ------------------------

    Scammer:

    Hi,

    Well, I know I'm selling it cheap, but what can I do? The TV only works in the US and nobody wants it here.
    Anyway, I sent the TV earlier today. The TNT clerk said that they will inspect the TV and then send you an email notification with the instructions on what to do next. Please be sure to add [email protected] to your contacts list (TNT said that this is very important).

    Thanks.

    -----------------------

    Where should I take this next?

    I am now in Birmingham, United Kingdom.
    I am selling the 15" Unibody MacBook Pro, with 2.66 Ghz Core 2 Duo, 4 Gb memory, 500 Gb HD for $500 USD.
    I hope you are still interested in buying it.
    This Macbook Pro was ordered brand new directly from Apple on July 8th, 2009.
    About the laptop I can say it is 11 Months old and it is in good shape, no scratches, no dents as you can see from the pics I've sent. Included in the $500 price is everything the laptop came with when it was new, including the original manuals and warranty papers. The laptop still has Applecare warranty until July 8th, 2010. The Applecare warranty is fully transferable to the new owner. You can also purchase 2 more years of Applecare warranty.
    I tried to be a thorough as I could with the presentation so you can have all the info if you decide to go ahead and buy it.
    I have used the laptop mostly for internet browsing and presentations, so I would say it has been only lightly used.
    The laptop has the Snow Leopard 10.6.2 OS, the iLife 09 and the MS Office 2008 with the original recovery disks included.
    One more thing, the laptop is an US version and it works on the US power and plug system so you do not need a converter to use it in the US.

    I will send an email shortly with the complete specs and some photos so you can see the condition.

    Get back to me and let me know if you like the laptop and you wish to buy it.

    Thanks,

    Susan


    Hello

    I am selling it because I've recently upgraded to a 17 inch version.
    I am glad to see you are still interested. The laptop is with me in the UK and if we decide to go ahead with the deal we will need to find a safe delivery and payment method.
    I am looking to complete the deal within a week, so please let me know if you have the funds available at this time or if you will have the money within the week.
    If you have the money I am ready to go ahead with the transaction right away.
    Let me know

    I got really suspicious when she mentioned money 3 times within 20 words and pushed the time frame of the transaction.

    Same Craigslist scam still active today.
    Susan seems to be moving up. She is now a chef at a the Pub The Barnt Green Inn. After the second email I knew something wasn't right.
    The seller sounded too eager to sell, the price was too good, and the Macbook Pro was listed in my city but now the seller was in England. Alarms go off. I thought I would play along with this until I got more details. Here is what I have to this point. Use TNT?? Who are they? Give my money to them prior to shipping? No way? Follow this rule Buy Local only this way the these scammers won't find much on craigslist.
    Thank You for reporting this on the complaintsboard.com. It saved me a few hundred dollars.
    IF TNT wants to remain a Legitimate Company it better crack down on these scams or at least provide a report on how to verify a legitimate transaction with their company.

    Here is my interaction with the scammer. Notice I specifically suggested the type of transaction I wanted. I also asked why the listing was in my city if they were in England. These were not answered.

    Obviously we need a safe way to complete this deal that will allow us to make sure we receive what we are after.
    I will pay for a 2 days delivery so you will receive the laptop within 3-4 days.
    I was looking for a safe way to complete this sale and I have found a way for us to complete the deal safely and fast, and in this way you will receive the laptop in less than 3 days.
    The solution is provided by the worldwide shipping company TNT.
    They have a service which will provide us with a safe way to handle the payment and delivery of the laptop.
    With this procedure you will have the chance to test the laptop before I receive my payment, and the TNT procedure will ensure my safety as well in receiving the payment. And since TNT will also take care of the delivery this will go very smooth and fast.
    The procedure is explained on the TNT website. I saved the exact link so please click on the link below to the TNT website where the procedure is explained.

    Susan,
    I responded to your MacBook Pro listing because it said it was in Rochester, NY.
    Not sure how this came to be listed in Rochester, NY???
    I am not certain about paying for this when you are in England.
    I am concerned there is no guarantee or recourse to assure that I will get the macbook pro you are offering.
    The only option I can think of is a type of COD or a PayPal Transaction.

    Here's a new twist on the same scam. I have a shared accommodation listed on Craig's list. The prospective tenant indicates their willingness to rent the space, but they are moving from Paris and their luggage, car and furniture will be delivered by TNT prior to their arrival. They forward a money order for the deposit and first month rent, along with an additional amount ($2700) while asking me to forward that extra amount to TNT's accountant listed below prior to their arrival.

    People have to know that money orders take time to clear. Don't send money on behalf of the other party in the transaction. It's a bummer that such scammers take advantage of good people but this is a world wide net and untrustworthy people are everywhere.

    I am keeping the documentation and once I receive their check or Money Order I will send the emails and paperwork to the authorities. The use of Western Union makes it difficult to catch these guys though what goes around comes around as the saying says. I hope it comes around soon for these guys. it wastes so many people's time. Here are the emails in question:


    RESPONSE TO MY AD

    I am getting the same offer and deal but where is the scam? If I have to be satisified with the merchandise before signing for it what is the risk? I need some feed back because I am tempted to take advantage of this until I read all of these posts. This offer was too from the same song and dance but this person gave me their place of business. It is similar to other deals as the MAC BOOK PRO is between [protected] (the one she described) and is selling it for 500. I thought that was weird unless it can't be used in UK because of their voltage system. I know there is converters but I didn't think a scammer would give me their place of business where they worked. I was googling a way to have it shipped and I came across a service and I cannot remember the site now but I want to say it is the Global shipping service. I would still like to know how I can expose if this is a scam or not. I am not interested in losing 500.00 but if she has to put upfront money because it says a trust from her has to be established incase I don't accept the shipment then she has to pay for the shipping costs. Here is the site from TNT. (http://tnt.com.onlineparcel-express.info/about.tnt/index/details.html) Please give feed back. I still don't see the scam but maybe it is because I am too excited about this deal. It too was from Craigslist.

    Here is what I received:

    Hi, I am getting back to you regarding the 15" MacBook Pro from Craigslist

    My name is Arianna and I am now in Wolverhampton, United Kingdom.
    I am selling the 15" MacBook Pro, with 2.2 Ghz Core 2 Duo, 2 Gb memory, 220 Gb HD for $300 USD. I have attached some pics so you can see the condition of the laptop.
    The laptop is still available and I hope you are still interested.This Macbook Pro was ordered brand new directly from Apple on Feb, 2008.
    About the laptop I can say it is in good shape, no scratches, no dents as you can see from the pics I've sent. Included in the $300 price is everything the laptop came with when it was new.
    The laptop is here with me.
    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.
    I have used the laptop mostly for internet browsing and presentations, so I would say it has been only lightly used.
    The laptop has the Leopard and Vista OS, the iLife 09 and the MS Office with the original recovery disks included.
    One more thing, the laptop is an US version and it works on the US power and plug system so you do not need a converter to use it in the US.

    Please get back to me and let me know if you like the laptop if you're really interested in buying it.

    Thanks,
    Arianna

    I just got lured in too. I haven't made any payment yet but I knew something was fishy when the TNT website was not a part of TNT.com. I was sent a link at first that was on the domain tnt.com but it was a non-working link. The complaint should not be directed at TNT because this website http://www.globalship-tnt.com/details.html is not actually affiliated with TNT shipping services. Globalship is the scam site not TNT.

    Lesson: If it looks like ### and smells like ###...Its ###.

    Be careful, there are some vultures out there

    Hi
    I still have the TV. The TV is in perfect shape (take a look at the attached pics) and it comes with 18 months of transferable warranty.
    I am now in United Kingdom. I have been relocated here with my work several months ago. The TV is a US version and I think I can sell it for a better price in the US.
    Since I can't meet you and make the exchange, I would like to use a service that will help us with that. Please go here to see the procedure:
    TNT is a worldwide delivery company (like Fedex, DHL or UPS). You can see from their procedure that you will be able to check the TV before I receive the payment. If you are in a hurry, I will use 2 day delivery (shipping is on me).
    Let me know what you think.

    Thanks,

    Susan


    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Hi

    Shipping is on me. Your total price will be the $300 for the TV + a fee ($30) for sending the money to TNT.
    Did you read TNT's procedure on their website? It is explained there how their service works. Let me know after you read their procedure so I can be certain that we are on the same page:

    I will sell you the TV for $300 with everything in the pictures included, I will use 2 day delivery and allow you 5 days to inspect it. Shipping is on me. Your total price will be the $300 for the TV + a fee ($30) for sending the money to TNT. So, do we have a deal? At this point I need your name and address to start the deal.

    Thanks,

    Susan

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Hi

    I went to TNT today. The guys from TNT told me that they will send the TV to their technical department for inspection and then they will notify you. They will also notify you with the instructions you need to complete your end of the deal. Please complete your end as soon as you can and keep me posted.

    Thanks,

    Susan

    if it wasnt for my fiance i would be ### out of luck too. i too almost fell for this ###. this was my description of the add. HiI still have the TV. The TV is in perfect shape (take a look at the attached pics) and it comes with 18 months of transferable warranty. I am now in United Kingdom. I have been relocated here with my work several months ago. The TV is a US version and I think I can sell it for a better price in the US.Since I can't meet you and make the exchange, I would like to use a service that will help us with that. Please go here to see the procedure:TNT is a worldwide delivery company (like Fedex, DHL or UPS). You can see from their procedure that you will be able to check the TV before I receive the payment. If you are in a hurry, I will use 2 day delivery (shipping is on me).Let me know what you think.Thanks, Susan

    These people are ###ed up. I almost fell for this ### luckily I thought to check it out first and I'm not going to complete the transaction. I really wanna do something to find these people though. This is the email I got about a macbook air.


    Hi there,

    Sorry for my late reply but I'm currently in England, London. Because of the financial crisis, I lost my job in United States ( i was an IT Operations Manager ) and I had to move at my syster in United Kingdom ( here I found a good job ) .
    The laptop is still available, in perfect condition, and I will sell it only in US because here the warranty and the AppleCare are US registered.
    I can't use the laptop here in UK because it works on 110 V. I didn't know about this problem when I moved here and another reason why I am selling the laptop because I really need money urgently to pay my rent for next 3 months
    I have attached some pics with the laptop to this e-mail so you can see the condition of the laptop. I bought the laptop 8 months ago and it still has 4 months of Apple transferable warranty remaining ( you can extand the warranty for one year on your name ).
    I hope you are still interested and we can make the deal happen right away.
    Since I can't meet you and make the exchange, I would like to use a service that will help us with that:

    www.tnt.com/tnt.express.wolverhampton.depot/third_party_service.html

    TNT is a worldwide delivery company (like Fedex, DHL or UPS). You can see from their procedure that you will be able to check the laptop before I receive the payment. If you are in a hurry, I will use 2 day delivery (on my expense).

    Let me know what you think.

    Hello

    Best Wishes
    Brenda

    REPLY FROM SCAMMER:

    "Hello,

    I still have the Nikon D200 10.2 MPixel D SLR, Package w 2 Pro Lenses and the price is $900.
    My name is Alan Wray and I am sorry for my late reply but I'm currently in England, London. I was promoted to Sales Administrator and I have to take a 6 months trainning program here in UK, before I'll be back home, in States.The camera is in perfect condition, and I will sell it only in US because here is the warranty.I have attached some pics with the camera to this e-mail so you can see the condition of the camera.I've only taken about 1200 photos with it.All original accessories, software and manuals...nothing missing. Only 3 months .
    It really is in brand new condition. Not a mark on it.We can close a deal asap. Have found a way for us to complete the deal safely and fast, and in this way you will receive the camera in 2 days, if you move fast as well. The solution is provided by a international company called TNT which is similar to Fedex, DHL or UPS, which will handle the payment and delivery of the camera.

    I will explain to you step by step how this will work.
    1) First you will have to send me your full name and address. I will need them for the shipping.
    2) I go to the TNT store and leave the products onto your name as the intended receiver.
    3) TNT will check the products to see if everything is OK with them and also the legal papers that will come along with the products.
    4) TNT will send you a delivery notification to let you know they have the products you ordered in which you will be told that they have them and that they checked them.
    5) At this point you will have to go to a Western Union Agent Location and make a money deposit on the TNT payment agent name for the amount we agreed.
    6) After you make the deposit you will have to send the info about the money transfer to TNT (MTCN, sender's name and address)
    7) TNT will verify the payment information and if everything is in order they will deliver the products to you .
    8) After you receive the products, check them and see that all is in order you will instruct TNT to send me the money.
    If by any reason, you will not be satisfied with the products, you will return the product to TNT with no expense.
    I will pay TNT for the shipping and you will pay Western Union for the Money Transfer fee.
    Please click on this link for more info:

    http://tntgb.com/tnt.express.london.depot.overseas.transactions/

    Hope to hear from you soon.

    Thank you,

    Alan Wray"

    THIS IS A SCAM - AVOID IT! This is a scam, because he's selling a $1, 600 Nikon 70-200 f/2.8 lens, $1, 500 Nikon 70-200 lens, and a $900 (used price) Nikon D200 body for $900 for the whole package. Not even a pro, trying to liquidate gear would be this stupid. These items, even if beaten up pretty badly can easily sell for twice what this guy is asking. WATCH OUT!

    I am so thankful that everyone posted these comments on this website. I hope that one extra post may help somebody else like reading these posts helped me. I was apartment hunting in Minneapolis and came across a deal that seemed too good to be true. After receiving a couple of e-mails in semi-broken english, describing what a steal it was and how his/her job had moved to the UK and that is why this apartment had become available, blah blah. Anyhow, sound familiar anyone?
    FIRST EMAIL:
    Thank you for your interest. I have available the apartment . Because I moved with my
    job in United Kingdom, London, i need money to pay the rent here which is
    very expensive and that is the reason i want to rent the apt at this low
    price and to find a good person for it. I can rent you the apt for
    maximum 5 years this is the perioud i have contract here but i can rent it for
    a low period too. I`m the owner of the apt and it's exactly like in
    the PICS. The rent for 1 month is $1100 including all utilities
    (water, electricity, Internet, cable, parking, air conditioning, fireplace,
    dishwasher, garbage disposal, microwave, refrigerator). You can move
    in the apt in the same day when you receive the keys. The only problem is
    that I`m the only person who has the keys but I hope that we will find
    a compromise.
    Thank you for your interest and wait news from you.

    SECOND EMAIL:
    Hello,
    Thank you for your reply. Like I have inform you before, the price
    you shall pay for one month of rent will be $1100 US, with no extra
    taxes to pay. The money I want to receive it monthly to my bank account, I
    hope will be no problem for you to wire the money to my bank account.
    The apartment is ready for you, you will need only to receive the keys and
    the contract to check it, and see if you like it.
    Obviously we need a way to complete this deal that will allow us to
    make sure we receive what we are after. I have found a way for us to
    complete the deal safely and fast, and in this way you will receive
    the Keys in less than 2 days, if you move fast as
    well. The solution is provided by a company called TNT which is similar
    to FedEx, DHL or UPS, which will handle the payment and delivery of
    the Keys.
    I have found a procedure that will allow you to pay for the rent of the
    apt only after you will receive the keys it and through this way you
    will see it and decide if you will stay in the apt or not before I
    receive my payment.
    Please click on the link bellow to the TNT website to see how we can
    complete the deal safely and fast directly from the website of the
    company where the procedure is explained:
    http://www.tnt.com/country/en_generic/services/special_services/timecritical.html
    Let me know if you are interested please because I really need to take
    care of this matter by the end of the next week
    Best Regards

    sick ###s is all I can say. These people can rot in hell.

    I fell for it also. iBook G4 $300.00
    But 48 hours too late, I fear. Had to go to Western Union. What revolting people these are. Just be glad you aren't like them.

    I also saw listing on craigslist. iMac for $500 [email protected] was the email. I did not buy in but using as lesson for my daughter.

    Moral of story "If it seems too good to be true, it most likelys is!"

    Below copy of email... like everybody said...same wording.

    Bellow are payment and delivery details:
    A. First you send me your shipping information ( name and address).
    1. After i receive the shipping info, i'll go to a TNT Location and leave the product into your name and with your address as the intended receiver.
    2. TNT will check the product, also the legal papers to see that everything is OK with it.
    B. You will receive a notification from TNT as a confirmation that the product is in their custody .
    1. After that, you will have to make a money transfer via Western Union on an TNT agent name and send the payment information to TNT.
    2. TNT will verify the Money Transfer, and if everything is in order, they will deliver the product to your door step.
    3. After you will receive the product and you will be completely satisfied
    with it, you will instruct TNT to release the payment to me, so i can collect the money.
    The shipping taxes are allready included in the prices, so u will have not to pay any extra charges!

    This is the exact email I just got right now before I searched this "TNT delivery company" and found this site luckily. They're selling this computer for $500, I knew it was too good to be true:

    Hello


    I still have the computer.

    Motherboard
    Gigabyte GA-M57SLI-S4 AM2 NVIDIA nForce 570 – A decent Board. SLI Capable. Overclock friendly. A good board for this rig. (Includes the SLI Bridge in case you want to go SLI in the future.)


    Graphics Card
    NVIDIA 8800GT 512MB (Manufacturer: Leadtek) – One of the Best cards on the market right now! Any decent gamer would know enough about this card. I shouldn’t have to list the specs here.


    Ram
    4x Samsung 1GB DDR2 800 PC2 6400 Dual Channel (Total 4GB)– It’s not the greatest type of RAM out there, but it’s more than sufficient.


    Processor
    AMD Athlon 64 x2 6400+ Black Edition (3.2Ghz) Dual Core


    Hard Drives
    2x Western Digital 250GB 7200RPM (500GB Total) In RAID 0 Striped configuration. – For the uninitiated, it means that both hard drives act as one. This way, load times are theoretically cut in half.


    Cooling System
    Swiftech Liquid Cooling System: Liquid Radiator with 1x 120mm fan and radbox, Plastic Tubing, 12v pump – I have it rigged to hook up to the processor only right now. More components can be added for DIMM, GPU, or Southbridge etc… NOTE – I will drain the liquid from this system before shipping. Though the rig can run regular distilled water alone, you will –definitely- need to purchase the antifungal / anticorrosive additive (couple of bucks) before using it regularly. I’d also recommend tightening the fittings – just for safety.


    Operating System
    Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium. x64 (Genuine Retail version – Clean Install) - I will include an install disk and the product key. NOTE – this is a 64 bit system. I will leave everything intact on the hard drive. You may reformat if you wish. The product key is good for a 64 bit edition only (Clean install).


    Case
    Some cheap-### no-name case – It’s black, and everything fits, though it’s a bit snug. – I used to have an old HP computer that had some memory card readers and USB ports. I made it fit into this case’s expansion slot, so the plastic border piece for the component was sheared to fit.

    Monitor #1
    HP Monitor – HP w2207 – Damn good monitor. 1680x1050 22” widescreen flat LCD; 1000:1 contrast ratio. A quick Google search will give more details, but the Monitor is very highly rated. NOTE – The monitor’s casing has a few small scratches on it, but the viewing portion is completely as-new.


    Monitor #2
    Westinghouse – 1680x1050 22” Widescreen LCD; 700:1 Contrast ratio. I use this as my internet, media player, or add-on monitor. The picture quality is good, but sitting side-by-side with the HP monitor, difference is noticeable. It has a lower contrast ratio, so the colors aren’t as vibrant as the other monitor.

    Keyboard & Mouse
    Microsoft Wireless Entertainment Keyboard 7000 (Bluetooth) – Google it. It’s an amazing keyboard with too many features to list here – but I do want to mention that it has a built-in mousepad in the corner! Only problem is, It doesn’t have a built-in numberpad. Comes with Microsoft Wireless Laser Mouse 8000 (& Charger) The screw that holds the keyboard’s battery cover on is messed up. Everything works 100%, and you can’t even tell unless you’re changing the batteries.


    Sound System
    Logitech 5.1 X-540 – 70 Watts Surround sound system. – It’s a box of rocks that won’t blow a woman’s clothes off, but it’s enough to shake a small room. No docking ports for an iPod or anything, though.


    External HDD
    300 GB 7200 RPM Samsung HDD in a BoomTech case. – It does the job
    My name is Sarah Barker and I am now in Manchester, United Kingdom.
    I hope you are still interested and we can make the deal happen right away.
    Obviously we need a safe way to complete this deal that will allow us to make sure we receive what we are after.
    I have found a way for us to complete the deal fast (3 days) and easy.
    The solution is a worldwide delivery company called TNT. TNT is similar to Fedex, DHL or UPS and they will provide assistance in hadling the payment and delivery of the computer.
    With this procedure I will only receive the payment for the computer after you will receive it and see that it is just like I said it is.

    Like I said, I will pay for a 2 days delivery so you will receive the computer right away.
    Let me know what you think.

    Best Regards,

    Same thing happened to me, and I'd been sketched out by it the whole time. I just kept thinking "I must be MISUNDERSTANDING him, because this doesn't make logical sense!" and finally I just googled the service and found this page! My incident was with a DC area apartment listing... I sent back an email saying that I knew it was a scam and email blocked him :)
