It's called phishing. They send you an offical looking email that says your account is locked or something to that effect. They include a link to fix your account. When you take that link you go to their site where you supply them with your id and password!
For more information, visit this site: http://www.antiphishing.org/index.html

yes,,,,and they do it so well it is hard to tell what is real and what is not. I will NEVER go to a web site that requires a log in or pin through an email link.
Always go to the web site in a new window directly where you type in the name of the site that you are famliar with.
You can go to www.dnsstuff.com and paste in the site info for some of these faked addresses and you will be amazed at where they come from. Russia, China, middle east, etc.
I have found some that were local (US) and even here in GA. Sent the webmaster a copy of the phishing email to report the abuse.
Can't do much but try to shut them down for whatever good it does.
I once got back 5000+ emails a day or so later telling me to F**** myself. Guess it must have worked.

Take care,

Well I was too late to check out the listings - they have all been pulled.

I have attempted to string along several of these sellers. After awhile when you don't act "urgently" they stop writing. I was looking for a Garmin GPS 396, an aviation unit for an airplane. They run $2500, and I found some on ebay for $895. Of course, western union was the only payment accepted!

I wrote him & said that was a great price, and could he sell me 5 for $5000 cash for me to resale in my store. He wrote back very excited and said after I sent him the cash by western union he would overnight them (from Romania). The western union address was in Bucharest, and I wrote him back how excited I was because my mother was in Bucharest on a mission trip, and she would just meet him at the western union office and give him cash for the units. He writes back (no longer excited) that he has a friend pickup the money, and he would no longer be in that city in a few hours. I sent a reply asking for him to name anywhere an exchange could be made, and he never wrote back.

Had to be. There was no description of the trailer to speak of. Too little information.

Oh yeah, I get those all the time for ads on Craigslist. I like the way they are completely generic, they never mention what it is in the ad, or refer to it as 'the item'. They want you to repeat everything that was already in the ad. They imply they will pay the asking price, whatever it was, even if it was already in the ad. And the english is always awful.

I hate scammers who can't even take the time to personalize their scams - that's just lazy!

I got an email from a Great Britainer who wanted my Motorhome. I told him I could not deal with the shipping....at any rate it ended up selling to a Brit at the end, who arranged his own set up.
