I'm selling my Jewelleries online through bxxsell.com, and there was a Lady who E-mailed me, and said she came accross to my Ads, and found very intersting, she would like to buy all of my jewelleries and have to send to a friend of her lives in Nigeria to the following address:
74 ogunmuyiwa street
Ijeshatedo, Surulere
Lagos.
Nigeria 23401
She doesn't even live in the same city as I do, and I did rejected her once and said I would like to sell it to someone in my local area, she keeps saying she already has the fund ready, and asked me to give her my E-mail address so she'll send the Fund.

So I called to Paypal, and confirmed with them about some Fees, I'm telling the Agent about the lady asking me to send the Products to Nigeria, she told me there is some scam going on right now, asking the seller send the products to South Africa, and those scam normally will pick the person who is not using E-bay to sell their Products. She told me that the buyer will agreed to pay the money before having me to send the products, but they'll need to have the Parcel Tracking # before the fund is release. So I confirmed with the Agent, as long as I log in to my account through PayPal.ca, and make sure I received the Fund, then the transaction is not a scam, otherwise it is a scam. And she confirmed YES!

So I send an E-mail back to the Buyer, and she said she'll send me the money through PayPal the next morning.
And I really received an E-mail have the name saying <a href="mailto:Service@paypal.com">Service@paypal.com</a>, however if you look at the E-mail address, that's not Paypal's E-mail address. So I didn't send my products.

And thank you for the Agent from PayPal, although I will still log in to my Account and make sure the fund is received before I send out my products, but I will definately waste a lot of time to go checking the shipping cost and take all the pictures for her.

There is a few point that you need to beaware of:
1) They NEVER bargain the price
2) They will get whatever you got from your Hand
3) When they send the money, it looks like the E-mail is come from Paypal.com, but they are actually from another E-mail address, Make sure you check that.
4) Make sure you don't use the hyperlink from the E-mail that they provided to check if the fund is received, If they are a professional Scammer, they will set up your Account in there, looks like PayPal account, which to show you received the fund, Open a New Tab, type in PayPal.com, and log in in there, that way, you'll know exactly if the fund is really in your account.
5) PayPal won't hold funds, they you can only file a Dispute if there is something wrong with the Transaction, they will never ask you to provide the Tracking # before you received the Fund.

Opps, I think I should post the Scammer's E-mail Address too:

Good Luck Guys, Don't get Scam.

Thanks for sharing your views i am learning more and more everyday regarding scams and its serious issue hope scamchecker.com helps many of them to learn certain things.

I just happened to get a verification from someone similar to this.This who it came from :roland okafor.This is where the confirmation came from:online.tracking17@accountant.com.I sent the confirmation number to paypal & they said it is not valid & they do not use that e-mail address.

I sympathize with u guy on your lost. why not Try and report the Guy to EFCC in Nigeria and see what will come out of it.
Also if the guy is on facebook why not try smearing campaign against him. I am From Nigeria i have also receive several scam messages i don't bother reading them i delete them instantly. Next time any offer that sounds too good to be true don't bother about it. They always play on people greed

Hi,
Isn't It Frustrating when you have been a victim of the 'Nigerian Scam' .. I myself am one of them, I keep on kicking myself, I must be so gullible, Normally im not. !! My Mobile phone as we speak is on a plane to NIGERIA, Mother Fuckers.. Excuse my language, but my god. , They are scammers coz the play the system so bloody damn good. !!! I am trailing the internet daily now to make sure I never ever ever get scammed again

thanks for posting this report. It really sounds ridiculous that scammers even use Paypal in their scams. I hope Paypal will do something about this because their reputation is at risk during this situation.

I was just about to fall for this scam thought it was to good to be true! she approached me through facebook. as "Anita Marcheda" she foudn me through the Market place.
Her email was/is <a href="mailto:elli.anita@yahoo.com">elli.anita@yahoo.com</a>
she even told me she wasnt here to scam i didnt think it was weird she had me set up a paypal account and couldn't just direct deposit it to me after i sent her pictures and stuff. goddamn there goes 3 days of wasted time

Im so lucky to have gotten out of this ! i was about to send it off in about 5 hours!

lucky i went to google map to see where the address it.. and i went to goggle it and i search this site about the scam!

and indeed.. this same person also ask me to send her paypal request and her email wasnt a registered paypal.. and the email she send me regarding the payment was in my junk email.. which is a no-go!

same adress to ship to: some Agunlejika Street Ijeshatedo in Nigeria-Lagos

This is the private message I got on Facebook from someone offering to buy an item I had listed for sale on the Market Place app on that site. Funny that the street address is practically the same as what Tashabelle (above) reported.

THANKS GOD.......I GOT TO KNOW IT WAS A SCAM.....AND I DIDNT SEND HIM MY FACTORY SEALED PSP

The same happened to me as well with a minor change in the name :-) but the same address !

Almost got scammed into sending my Fossil Watch over to the EXACT same address. Happy I looked into it more...didn't feel right as hotmail will show any email from paypal as a trusted sender with a little green checkmark. Their email did not show the checkmark. Thanks everyone! Appreciate it.

Does anyone recognize this name and email address? <a href="mailto:rolandokafor@hotmail.com">rolandokafor@hotmail.com</a> Someone from this address has a place for rent, it is very cheap for what it is. He says he isn't worried about the money, but more concerned that his home is looked after the way he would. He also says that he was transfered to the UK for work and that he has the rental documents and the keys to the townhouse with him.
Thank you.

I have a pink computer that I am selling and someone with the name Kathy Perkins contacted me on facebook. she said that she wanted to buy it for her "KID sister" who is schooling in Nigeria who loves pink. she told me that she would send me $480, which is $180 more than my asking price of $300. She said that she wanted me to ship the item to Nigeria and that she would pay through Paypal. I decided to google the information and behold, I found this website! Thank you because this information prevented me from going through a scam! Needless to say, I cursed her ass out on facebook and I told her that I am not a dummy and she better not contact me again! LOL. Here is the information she sent:
Name...........Oscar Dele Perkins
Address........8 Agunlejika str., Ijeshatedo
City...........Surulere
State..........Lagos
Zipcode........23401
Country........Nigeria.

I put up my shoes for sale on fb market place and a "Kayla Wilkins" sent me a message saying that she'll pay 100 extra for shipping to NIgeria for her KID brother
I asked why she capitalized KID and she said because she wanted to make sure it's sent to the right person.
When I asked for the address, she gave me this:
Name...........Oscar Dele
Address........8 Agunlejika str., Ijeshatedo
City...........Surulere
State..........Lagos
Zipcode........23401
Country........Nigeria.

I searched up the address, feeling sketchy about the whole thing and came across this article
and i just wanna share this story and hope that no one else falls for this bullshit!
I replied with this and a link to this website!

okay, so i will send this over tomorrow
but here is a site where you can check the shipping details, maybe you can tell me which shipping option I should choose.

here is the shipping address below,

Name: Ola James
Address: 8, Agunlejika Street Ijeshatedo
City: Surulere
State: Lagos
Country: Nigeria
Zipcode:23401.

check your email address because the payment has been made and please make sure you mail it out with the shipment method selected in the confirmation mail so that paypal can carry out their proper verification on it.

i was sent an email from "PayPal Service <customer_agency@cyberservices.com>"

God bless you google, and all you people who left these comments.

almost sent my laptop to these fools. how do i report on facebook?

I live in sweden and were about to sell my ipod to this adress but didnt, i searched the adress cause it sounded a bit strange that she wanted to buy it at a swedish website when she comes from the U.S where mine wasn´t that much cheaper then buying a new one instead in the US. She said she got the tip from some kinda doctor but luckely we checked it up :) hope they get caught!

i got an email from a woman with the email: <a href="mailto:lussymilnda@gmail.com">lussymilnda@gmail.com</a> who wanted to buy my ipod, she said she were from the U.S and that she worked as a nurse in the U.K, apparently she got the tip from some doctor of this swedish (thats were i live) website and she wanted to buy it as a gift to her son. It sounded strange that she would not buy it in the U.S when that isn´t much more expensive then buying a new one in the U.S so thats why i searched for the adress and found this .So thanks, all the info except the "fake paypal adress" was correct with what she´d written to me. The fake paypal was oddly enough the same (if i didnt read wrong) as paypal say it is: <a href="mailto:service@intl.paypal.com">service@intl.paypal.com</a>. Now you have read my story and hopefully this will help someone!

We're selling an xbox 360 + games on craigslist and today we got an email from Cinthia Philips (<a href="mailto:cinthiaphilips@gmail.com">cinthiaphilips@gmail.com</a>) wanting to buy it, so she asks for my paypal address and sends $350 - and I got the email saying I had to ship it out first to her nephew in Nigeria and funds will be released. I ended up phoning paypal customer service, and they said not to ship it out because there was no record of the transaction (SOOO happy I phoned about this!). When I emailed her and let her know, she writes back that she sent the money and wants me to go ahead and send it anyway, regardless of what paypal told me. She is nothing if not persistent, watch out.

just got one from Sharon Amenas same address ...smfh! whats the deal... so annoying

Thanks for this posting, I would have gotten scammed .. but i'm a little smarter than that! but it's good to know that people can find this page and save themselves!

I had one today try to scam me, from Kijiji. Asking me to send a PS3 via Airmail to Nigeria (duhhh.. ok!) For thier "Friends" son's birthday who was on vacation in nigeria, and they were claiming to be out of the country in scotland on business, and were from halifax (i'm in ottawa). And I'm sorry that here in canada they must think we are too dumb to notice that people do not vacation in the African Slums (google map the address for fun!)

Just so others have the info, here is the shipping address request:

Halie Raudenbush
hlraudenbush@yahoo.c​om

Ship to Name: Oluwatobi Williams
Address: 34, Baruwa Street
City: Itire Ijesha
State: Lagos
Postal Code: 23401
Country: Nigeria

Hey i had the same thing happenin to me now. and I am a lot worried as I send them an invoice with my complete address. Does any of u have idea what they will be upto now as i have given my address....

I received an email regarding an LG phone I wanted to sell. At first she only asked if the phone was still available. Her next reply asked for my bank information in which I responded that I would not give out that information. She then responded asking to use paypal and sent me this address 34 Araromi Street Itire-Ijeshatedo, Lagos-Nigeria 23401. She claimed that it was a birthday gift for her pastor's son who works in West Africa. Luckily I am cautious of any transaction on the internet and when I googled the address, I got this website so thanks everyone for looking out.

Trying to sell a computer on a local selling website, and received an email very much the same. He said he wanted to buy the computer for his son living in Africa. He apologize that he couldn't give me the money personally, as he was a "Marine Agent" in "Singapore Station". He even offered to pay me $200 more than what I was asking. I immediately thought it may be scam, but played along a bit. Told him ya, but I wold have to have the money in my pay pal account before I shipped anything, and that I wanted the address so I could get a quote. He messaged me back saying that was fine, and gave me this address;
47, Ogunmuyiwa Street, Ijeshatedo, Surulere,Lagos, 23401, Nigeria.
Sure enough, after throwing that in Google, Here I am :)
