p.1 #1 · Feels like a scam.


I got a resopnse from a CL ad. I sent a reply asking for verification from a venue before I accept a booking. Has anyone got a similar CL response. Seems more than a little odd that they do not have a venue booked 3 weeks before their wedding.

Hey

Sorry for the late reply. I have considered your advert on craigslist.
It is our pleasure to invite you to our wedding ceremony coming up on
April 12. Our event planner is currently working on two venues and we
are yet to decide. I will update you once venue is secured. A car is
available to pick you up if you don't own a car.

I will be paying you via a certified check and I have made arrangement
to send you a deposit of $200 now. I want you to send me your name,
address and phone number to issue out the payment.

I will be looking forward to hearing from you.

Thanks

Certified check before the wedding?
I don't see any problem. It's certified, money is put aside for you.

You mean your couples don't send a car around to pick you up?

Do most photographers walk or take the bus? Sounds very fishy...

I love how all of these guys have very "english" speech patterns in Nigeria, as they are often educated with "british" english, or have spent time in britain.

GREETINGS,

I am in posession of a vast quantity (over 1,000,000 jokes, anecdotes and comics) of Nigerian scam humor, owing to the recent collapse of my humor website nigerianjokes.co.ng. I have chosen you, whom I have never met, to be the trusted holder of this humor for a time until I can reestablish my website in a friendly country. Your reward for this service is to keep 5 percent (50,000) of these jokes for use on your own website. I look forward to our business endeavor. Please send me five jokes as proof of your interest, as well as the location and login information for your website. I can begin transferring the humor as soon as I regale the guards with the jokes you send me.

God Bless you and your Family

Col. Mbumbarak Swawobani

From the little I've heard about how these schemes work, the check is fake. Takes a few days in the banking system till its worthlessness is discovered.

In addition to not getting the money, your bank will fine you for bouncing the check.

and here is the rest of the story...

You will receive a bogus certified check for more than your agreed fee. You will be asked to cash the check and give the overage to Mr. XXX for payment of the venue or for some other reason. The scam artist will tell how they trust you. A few months later the certified check is rejected and your bank takes the money back from your account. You are out the money given to Mr. XXX.
