917-663-5532....same response to my ad..."Okay I'm cool with the price & the condition as described on the the ad I'll like to buy it asap and i will be sending a certified check from my bank to you overnight via USPS within 24 delivery, reply me back with your name and address to send the check out and will also arrange shipment through my shipper after you have cash at hand thanks"..
this for a $50 hornring advertised with no description.
I just tell them I only accept paypal or USPS money order and never hear from them. I was rather surprised to see them attempt this on such a small item....

The sentence structure and syntax used appear to be from India. Reminds me of the fake IRS scam language.

Apparently this is still going on with the "fake login" stuff

Reported by a user today from 703-662-4434:

If this wasn't you, your account will be among the accounts I will be shutting down that has been sign in from another country device but if you don't want your account with advert to be among the account and advert that will be shut down, send your username with password for us to secure your account with it fast so no one from another country can sign in your account from different country.

I can't stop people from texting you.
Don't use a phone # and give your phone # out only on request if you do not want phone contact.

just got one from someone wanting me to sign a purchase agreement on an item I am selling using "docusign" . when I attempted to open this document , I was warned by my computer about a virus alert. REALLY? a purchase agreement on something I was selling?

The purchase agreement sounds strange but:
Docusign is a real business used to sign documents online.
I just used that service last week to sign a document.

They probably didn't send you a real link to docusign though.
Similar to the fake bank/credit card/etc scam emails I get where the links go to scammer web sites

Another member sent me the PDF used for the "Docusign" document.

It's a scam - The PDF is a single page with a link that goes to a website that was just registered last week.
I did not go to the website link as a safety precaution but I'm guessing they will try to steal any personal information you enter there.

I won't name the exact web site here but it had the name of a major bank as part of the domain name.
(That should be a good enough to compare against anything people receive)
