Beware of selling stuff online

I am sure you probably are aware the scammer are everywhere.  Even when you are selling stuff online.

I may have shared a story before but this one I didn't shut down right away.  I took it further.

So I have a consignment business on the side.   I posted a friend's entertainment center on an app called Offerup.  I deleted the conversation too quick to remember to screen shot it.

Now, as soon as anyone tells you, (especially on a selling site) when they want to talk to you via text or hangouts, it's a scam.  But I played along.  And when they say
I'll have my assistant contact for deliver" RUN AWAY! FAR AWAY!

So being the scammer catcher that I am, I continued.  I'll let you read the dialogue and then I'll tell you the rest.






So what I did was give them the address of St. Louis Police Headquarters downtown.  They also sent me fedex info which I will post below from the fedex website. It doesn't show it was delivered though in his message he says they did.

Well I also emailed this info to my contact at the St. Louis FBI.  (Yes I have a contact at the FBI).  I haven't heard back from her but sent her all this info.

Now as you can see after I tell them their package is at Police Headquarters I never hear back from them.  Imagine that?  LOL!!!

This isn't the first time I've had someone try a stunt like this, but being the wise scammer catcher that I have become, I know not to fall for it.

Here is the fedex info.  Remember don't fall for this stuff.
