Hi Everyone: I wanted to let you know about a scam attempt that occurred through our local RanchoMurieta.com website. Yesterday, I posted an ad for some furniture here. This morning I had a text message from a person identifying himself as "Ronald". He said he lived in Pennsylvania and wanted to buy my furniture (sounded a little strange from the get go). After several back and forth IMs, he said he would send me a "cashiers check" and would have a picker come get the furniture. However he said he would send the check with an amount to cover his picker's fee that he wanted me to give that amount to the picker. When I responded that he would have to deal directly with his picker on the payment and that the person could get the furniture after the check cleared, he gave me a line that got stranger and stranger about how that was the only way he could do it. When I asked how he (who supposedly lives in PA found the ad on our local website he said "Oh, on the local ad"). At this point I was fairly certain I was dealing with what's termed the "Nigerian check scam". I have some fairly sophisticated computer tracking software, and so I was able to pull the curtain back on this individual a little and have contacted the appropriate law enforcement agency. I don't place any blame on RanchoMurieta.com for this, but it does show that just because you're on our local website doesn't mean there aren't people there who are watching our RM site for the wrong reasons. So, please be careful . . .
