Do Scams actually work ?
I listed an iphone4 for sale on craigslist and I get this email from someone that says
"ok i will like to purchase this item for my son, who is currently working in the Oilfield west Africa, for a birthday Gift and i will also be paying you $400 for the item and shipping cost Via USPS EMS Express Mail International i will be paying you through the best way to pay online PayPal Kindly get back to me with your PayPal email address so i can make the payment now hope to hear back from you ASAP."
Are people really this dumb ? Could the scammer at least try harder to look legit ? What is this world coming to when the scammer wont even try ?
