    I got scammed once, by a girl in sydeny, i had her phone number, name, bank details everything and she never posted the saddle.

    Thankfully after telling her what i truely though that i am a lawyer and with those details i can sue her arse and find out any details i need to find and that i was on my way to the police station she put the money back into my account. But she continued to lie and tell me that i could have the saddle then made every excuse under the sun to not send it or give it to me or allow me to pick it up whilst i was i sydney.

    She had done this to atleast 7 people that i was in contact with and we all got our money back. She had different names, but we either had the same phone number, email, or bank details, there was a common element between all of us which led to us knowing she was the same person.

    She replies to wanted adds and is probably still out there.

    There is also the famous scammer from Cranbourne in VIC. PM me if you want the details. I have been in contact with police about this one and she has been charged in the past for steeling peoples horse gear, she had horses taken off her by the RSPCA etc but she advertises on alot of horse sites and just never posts the item but happily takes your money, i only lost $40 to her though.

    lmao ! I had some scammers sending me emails March last year and as I was bored at home due to an injury, I decided to entertain myself a bit....haha :p

    I emailed the scammer back saying that I own a 6 bebroom beach house in Scarborough and asked him to come over and stay so he could help me to invest the 19 million dollars, he claimed I inherited from my uncle Charles, who died in a plain chrash in Bahrain...I also included my mobile number on to that email. About a month later, barrister Vincent Wong rang my mobile ( the call came from Malaysia ) and I gave him a mouthfull when he started asking for my credit card details...!

    Hello
    My name is Dixon Coly a Revered here in Australia,i was transfered here about 9 years ago and with the little i have seen here i was so impressed with it.The reason for contacting you is to notify you about the advert you placed regarding a horse you needed,i am so happy and glad to inform you that i can sell the horse to you.
    My church bought 3 horses for me as a welcome gift when i arrived there at first,and those three horses have been wonderful to me i take good care of them because i also love them.But right now my church managements has transfered me back to West Africa because it is the church policy to change all Revered after completing 9 year in any parish due to that i have been posted to a church in West Africa that happened 3 weeks ago and i am speaking to you right now from West Africa,i am just 3 weeks old here in West Africa so am still waiting to see how it looks compared to Australia.
    I am willing to sell the horses to you at a cheap and give away price because i know i wont have the quality time to take good care of them here in West Africa and like i told you i have 3 of them it depends on how many you are willing to buy.Let me give you there infos
    (1) Breed: Standard breed
    Name: Cassi
    Height:15.5hh
    Sex :Mare
    Awards:Won grade c awards in WA

    NB: you can let me know if you need more infos and pics of her
    The rest two are ponies so it depends on the one you need but if you need only one i would prefer to sell the above one to you (Cassi),she is so wonderful and listen to instructions,she will be a good horse if you buy her.
    Also get back to me with any other things you will need about her but i promise and assure you that you will enjoy her,she plays with pets very well eg dogs,cat etc.I am selling her at a cheap price because money is not what i am after all i want is the love and affection you will show on her because my church bought the horse for me at a high price but i will sell it at a low price.
    I heard that there is a horse flu going on now in the country and you may think that may be a barrier for buying the horse or shipping,no cause for alarm i have made a complain to the necessary authorities like the EFA and others and they have given me licence to ship any horse to the country because the horse has been throughly checked if you need the confirmation i will give you there email to confirm or i may tell them to contact you directly.
    I have made the shipping also ready but it depends on when you make the payment,if you are ready to buy her i will also contact the Airport at Brisbane and is Brisbane Internatinal Airport ok for the delivery airport,they told me that the horse will get to you after 8 hours of payment via western union money transfer which is fast and relaible,i can also give you the shipping agents email address if you need any other arrangements regarding the shippment and also i will also recive my money also via western union.
    Get back to me if you are interested so that we can commence futher,i will await your quick response soon.

    Replying to scammers is stupid. ;)

    I dont get scam mail no more, but write your email like this: noemail @ yahoo dot com dot au (remove the spaces & replace dot with .) or
    noemail @ yahoo.com.au (remove the spaces)

    The scammers only click on linked email addresses & save them for further use.
    They dont/wont re-write the spaced address, too much hard work for them.

    I never get scam mail or spam or anything, we have Norton and it scans everything so we don't get any non-legit stuff ... except someone seems to be able to bypass it, just this one mob, and I get tons and tons of porn emails!! It is really feral lol, I have sent it all to the junk folder and I think they have given up now. Oh no pics or anything yuck, just some bloke talking crap, not sure what they actually want? Idiots #(

    Yep this kinda thing is really common. Had some people on a dobermann mailing list I belong to ask about someone sending them e-mails to buy puppies. Scary thing was, they actually wished to purchase the puppy (?) using above method. So the people that were on the mailing list were supposed to 'deduct' their amount from cheque and then send the rest of the $$ back to scammer. Then put the puppy on a plane to god knows where thinking it was actually going to get picked up by someone at the other end. Would hate to think what would have happened to the pup if they actually had sent it (They were seriously considering it, but luckily didn't.)
