    So, I'm guessing this came in when I had an add up on craigslist. being it sounds like a craigslist scam.


    what do you think?

    100% scam.

    Free money is always a scam. Work for it.

    I'm amazed that there are still people out there who don't realize that this is a scam. Seriously, look at your spam box one of these days. You'll see a whole bunch of e-mails that sound a lot like the one you just posted...

    our office managers sister just fell for oen of these last summer. She cashed the 4k check and went on a shopping spree. Turned out to be fake and had to pay it all back, except she couldn't (you've probably heard this one, single mom of 5 kids...) so our office manager loaned her the money (somehow).

    Jesus. I just don't get how people fall for that crap. I mean, out of everyone, in the entire world, Mr. Huan Chun from the Chinese National Bank decided to personally e-mail you with his business venture? And people really think it's legit? Right...

    There are thousands of these scams going around. If they have free money for you it is a scam. Don't fall for any of these.

    the first scam I've ever had was when I was trying to sell some tail lights for a crx. At first it seemed legit, then it got really hairy. bout the time I realized it was a scam was when I was at the bank going to deposit this check and the bank is like. this check is a fake, right then I was like, and its going right back where it came from too. I never cashed it or anything. Instead, I turned it in to the local police told them what all happened, handed them copies of the emails, and never messed with it again.

    this scam was different then most, so I figured you guys would get alittle bit of a kick out of it.

    I found 20 bucks in the parking lot behind work one day. That was good, and it was free money.

    Your point has officially been nulled. :D
