Dear Craigslist Scammer,
I listed items on Craigslist because I am broke and was hoping to sell a few things I don’t need to be able to pay for things I actually do need. Instead, I get you. You and your bogus excuses for why you need to pay with a check, why you can’t meet in person and why you are more than happy to buy my items sight unseen.
You know what? I’m sick of you! Your daughter didn’t just give birth to a bouncing baby boy. Your adopted son is not helping you wire money to my account from who-cares-where. Your associates are not going to pick it up via a freight company after you send a bogus check to me. You are a lying piece of doodoo!
I’ve heard from you under many names. Sometimes multiple names supposedly from the same person. You can’t even keep up with your own lies! If it weren’t so disgusting, it would be funny.
I hope you enjoyed my note. It provided me a small amount of giggles in sending you something even more bizarre than the fairy tales you seem to think I’ll believe. I’m still broke, though, you jerk!!

So, I really wrote the note in the picture in response to the latest of many Craigslist scam emails. The other is what I’d like to say to all of the slime balls taking advantage of people who are less aware of their games than I am. The people who need to study books like this Book on Protecting Yourself From Social Media Scams and Scamming 101: 22 Scams Explained to protect themselves.

I’ve never tried to sell on Craigslist but now I probably won’t do it anytime soon…LOL! That would be so annoying! Hope you find some legit buyers soon 🙂

We have sold things with success in the past, but all of my more recent attempts at selling anything have been riddled with the most bizarre scam messages. I want to kick their hineys! LOL Thanks!

Really sorry Keisha. You’re right. The world is full of losers who will try and scam the ones who really are just trying to make an honest buck or two. I doubt it has any impact what you write to them.. but I sure bet that made you feel better. 🙂
