BEWARE: Forum scammers using Zilvia e-mail reply

Got this email from Zilvia.net about my WTB ad.

To email js2u2, you can use this online form:

OR, by email:
mailto:[email protected]

This is the message:

Let me know via email if you still need the S14 Sideskirts.

[email protected]
This user name that he used to email me from does NOT exist on the forum.

I looked it up using the community list.

I humored him to see what he had to offer, and he replied with this:

I asked him why his account name didn't show up in the member list, and if he had any friends I could paypal instead, he replied with,

I would have loved to you use paypal but my paypal account us currently dormant at the moment. I have used money gram and never had any problems before. You have nothing to worry about as money gram would need a valid id and a recently paid utility bill carrying my home address so payment can be traced if anything goes wrong.

I mostly replied and dealt with these scammy ass emails because the pics he sent me were of what I was looking for and I am pretty desperate, but I didn't want to get scammed out of my hard earned money. I knew it was fake once he said he was 65 years old blah blah blah.

If something seems too good to be true, it probably is.

Beware anyone that tries to email you, and wants to deal with transactions other than using paypal.

Best way to do business with me? Make your best offer FIRST.

Send a message via AIM to az_240
I've been getting these for a while with the WTB section. I just don't reply to any zilvia emails period.
