i have a motu up in the reader adds and this guys has contacted me about it..had me ..ive replied etc..it all sounds dodgy to me now

this is what i got from him yesterday

He should not be able to contact you using that email cos I blocked his account on 27 Feb -- unless your ad specifies the actual email and he could then send direct to you? (That's why we built an Email mechanism to hide seller emails from would-be buyer's until they use our form.


what should i expect..all he has is my phone number and my works email address...

Just ignore him and block/blacklist his email in your Mail program.

Another Readers Ads scam

Prophet 6 Ad (1400.00) now deleted, advertiser gives unconcise info in a childish manner; when you pigeonhole them for their phone number after being sick of no info, they say their SIM card isn't working. I wanted to collect and they kept stringing me along. They even send a picture.
Example of their text:

hi , my phone is not working so i cant talk at moment, but if you want to come here for the p6 , ill try to answer emails quickly, my name is howard donovan, i live with parents , so ill tell them if your travelling here, ok ill send adress if you want to travel here, ok bye for now ,howie
fet09@live.co.uk

Quite how they were going to get the money if I picked up I don't know, perhaps a mugging.
