Scam, fishing for credit card numbers.
Messed with these folks for about 20 minutes before they realized I wasn't biting.
Be careful of this guy ! He approached me and introduced him as a doctor. He wanted me to buy a phone from me for his relative in another state. I sent the phone and tried to call him to ask for money via the same number (312-999-8968) but realized that THIS IS NOT HIS NUMBER.
BE CAREFUL ! THIS IS SCAM EMAIL
My new phone is stuck on predictive text, sorry for the previous typos. I wanted to also point out that this guy has told all of us that he is relocating to our part of town. Where does everyone here reside? Im guessimg that we all live in different states by the way he words it. He never mentions the exact location that his family is moving to. Im in Northern Kentucky which is minutes from Cincinnati. DONT FALL FOR THIS SCAM OR ANYTHING ELSE EVEN SIMILAR.
On my email he claims to be Ashley, his wife is Janet, and his daughter (who we will all be watching lol) us named Rachael and they area relocating to my area from Chicago. Its a well known escape that has been going around the when for quite a while, DO NOT CASH THE BIG TEMPTING CHECK THAT HE SENDS YOU NO MATTER HOW BAD YOU NEED THE MONEY. It might take a week but the bank will hold you responsable for depositing a bad check. You will owe the total of the check and a whole lot of bank fees. You will also be out the money that he has you wire "his accountant." That part comes in the next email where he explains why he us overpaying you and what you're to do with it. That's his favorite part of the whole scam. Basically what he's doing us sending you a bad check in hopes of you cashing it then wiring him what he overpayed you.
Always remember that if sounds to good to be true, it usually is!
This really pisses me off hope they find this creeper.
Please read my comments below yours. The guys a scam artist, do not cash the check he sends is she gave him her information. He will send an email when she gets the check telling her that he overpayed her by quite a lot. He will tell her to keep her payment and wire the rest to his "accountant" or some other fictatious character. This is the scam, she wires him the money and then never hears from him again. The bank will find out that the check is a fake after about a week and she will be responsable for repaying the total ammount of the check back to the bank plus an insane ammount of money for bank fees.
People need to be made aware of scams like this because this guy is mainly targetting people that are looking for jobs. He found me by an ad that I placed on Craigslist for childcare and housekeeping. My inbox is now full, and I mean full of these kind of scams.
could someone plz get ahold of me about this. my daughter got same thing and she is worried about it. the guy texted her today and told her check would be here today or tomorrow.. shes freakin out a little
I got this same thing... It's all a spam?
Since he has my address could anything bad happen?

Unsolicited phone call
Says a mediation center, anyone else? Also left 877-659-9282. Legit??
almost every day: a call, no message, when I answer it hangs up. I called it back, voice message says Christian Kazima, or something like that. Called my phone company (fido), they don't do anything about this kind of stuff. it is infuriating and maddening, it is going on for 5 - 6 months now
