John Wilson adamsbraown67@gmail.com SCAM

Today I received the following email. It instantly seemed suspicious and I believe it is a total scam to acquire my information. BUYERS BEWARE!

A person "John Wilson" vaguely asked about the Stimsoni I have for sale (without actually mentioning them specifically or asking for any info about them.)

His email address is: adamsbraown67@gmail.com

When I asked to speak over the phone, he declined saying he was in a hurry and would actually pay me more.

I haven't heard from him since taking this screenshot... I think that speaks for itself.

Beware of any "buyer" wanting to pay you extra for your services, or requesting information from you they don't need. Money Orders, cashier's checks and "make arrangement for pick-up" are RED FLAGS PEOPLE.

Here is a screenshot of the conversation:

That doesn't surprise me. I've gotten these from other online sites like craigslist, but didn't think they'd infiltrated Fauna. Oh well. Time to be even more vigilant.

When you put your email address in your ads on this site, then that information is available to be viewed by the general public. That includes unregistered guests, web search spiders, scammers, spammers, etc. If you don't want to be exposed to this sort of external contact, then I advise you to utilize your phone or our internal private messaging system for your correspondence.

Thanks for creating this thread- I just got an email as well. All it said was "Still available?" and the title of the e-mail was my ad title. Doing a google search brought me to this and I reported them to gmail

Crystel, would you mind educating us on how you did this, I think it would be valuable for others to know how as well. Thanks

I would like to find out, so after they get your name address and phone number, what can they possibly do with it?
