Man Gets Revenge On Craigslist Scammer In the Most Satisfying Way Imaginable
#1 Anyone who’s used Craigslist knows that it can be a really useful tool for buying and selling stuff locally, but…
You have to get past all the unpleasant weirdos and scammers to enjoy it.
If you’ve sold anything on Craigslist, there’s a good chance you’ve been in the same situation the guy below is — approached by some strange guy, asking if they can PayPal you the money, then have an agent pick up the item at a later date. It’s clear as day they’re not legit to most people, but some newbies out there might fall prey.
Which is why this guy giving the scammer a taste of his own medicine is so satisfying.
#2 The complete title of the post copied verbatim is always a red flag that this is a bot.
#3 “work frame”
#4 This is starting to sound a little fishy…
#5 “I can only text” should be a dealbreaker.
#6 Here’s the point where the seller would walk away, but decides to put the scammer through the wringer.
#7 He raises the price to see if the scammer will take it, knowing that he has no intention of paying at all.
#8 Boom. Raises the price again and you might notice something funny about that name.
#9 The scammer is getting the picture, but isn’t there yet.
#10 Something tells me he’s not going to take VenMo.
#11 Now the seller is just playing as dumb as possible to frustrate the scammer.
#12 “I need to go to walmart.” Nice touch from someone who’s probably thousands of miles outside the US.
#13 This scammer is really accommodating when it comes to buying a different item!
#14 Scammer: Fine. Whatever. Just give me the info.
#15 And…another higher price creeps up.
#16 Making it as hard as possible for the scammer…
#17 “Seem like you play me?”
#18 It’s great that the scammer’s the one complaining about wasted time.
#19 He still doesn’t get the beauty of the name “Phu.”
#20 NOW he gets it.
Doesn’t feel so good to have your time wasted by someone with no intention of buying or selling from you, now does it, scammer?
