I’m sure everyone knows what Craigslist is, right? Like an online giant store where you can find anything and everything! Jason is a big Craigslist fan. I like to go on there sometimes but it’s more his thing than mine. He has found a few cars on there and has gotten rid of some things thanks to Craigslist. A lot of people are weary about it, as am I. Scams and murderers, crazy people are on there. You really have to be careful. You really never know what you are getting yourself into.
Well up until just recently we have never been scammed or attempted to be scammed. We are moving and looking for a place in the same town we live in. We found this beautiful house, perfect for us. A good price and a great neighborhood, the best in our town actually. We emailed the guy, he said go look at it and let me now what you think. He said that due to the nature of his work he travels outside the US a lot, red flag for me, but we looked at it anyway. There was a FOR SALE sign in the front. I emailed him again telling him I wasn’t looking to get scammed here, things don’t seem right, I want some details! OMG….we get an email saying “well just send me a deposit of $900 western union and I will UPS the keys.” You’re outa you’re F**CKIN mind!!!!! REALLY??? Do people fall for this??? We were mad that he wasted our time but laughed at the audacity of people! It really makes me wonder if people do fall for this and more importantly, why do people feel it necessary to scam people??? I don’t get it!
Have you ever been scammed or at least attempted to be scammed? Why do people do this?? We were thinking, wow this is a great house, perfect size, perfect price…ahhh when it’s too good to be true it usually is! BUT alas we did not fall for it….I feel bad for the ones who do!
