    I got this email and though, great ( I had made a post saying that I needed gifted capes) Heres what it said:
    can supply supply you with tanned coyote and red fox skins.
    Please, i do not know if another member has supplied so if you are interested, send you me your full delivery address for me to ship the items.


    Then I sent that it would be nice, then I got this:

    just read your request when i came back from hunting and I am going to the Ministry of Wildlife to update my CITES permit and Export license. This process will take me just three hours and after finalizing issues at the wildlife ministry, i will then move with the skins to the shipping agency. Pls these items can be shipped without the shipping agency';s manager viewing my my documents. I am sure to get through all processes before 6:00pm and also to register the items for shipment and please, i will try to alert the agency to send you details about the the shipment and from there you will see the senders address and you will make payment later after receiving the the skins.

    After geeting through, i will send you pictures of what i registered for shipment. Pls note that the items must be insured and so there is need to insure the items at the shipping agency.

    Thanks. Will send you details when i get back.
    And I got a little worried, then I got THIS:
    I finally went through with the signing of all the documents and i will be sending to you all the documents signed. I had registered the parcel for shipment to the address you provided and very soon the shipping agency will be sending to you details on the items. Please, do not forget to alert me as soon as the shipping agency sends you details. I had paid for the registration, preservation and shipping costs.......90usd and now the shipping agency wants the items insured at their insurance unit. This insurance is refundable..that the agency will refund to you the fee they will be charging you for insurance at the moment of delivery the items to you at your home. So will have to insure the items with the shipping and pls ensure they send you receipts of payment of the insurance since the money can be refunded without receipts.The insurance fee stands at 754usd.

    I had sent you 3red fox skins and 2 coyote hides.
    each red fox skins cost 85usd, total 60 x 3 = 180usd and each coyote skin 75 x 2 = 150
    Grand total 330usd. This means you will be sending me 330usd to my address as soon as you receive the skins from the agency. So you will have to wait until you read from the agency for they will be forwarding details of the items to you.

    I am writing you from a public computer, when i reach home, i will scan and send the cites and export license and also pictures of the red fox skins and coyote.

    You will have to print these documents and keep them so that you should not have any embarrassment with your government. Also when the agency sends you details and you pay the insurance you will also print and keep the receipts.

    And NOW I said, wait wait wait... I CAN'T buy this. haven't gotten a reply yet, the address was CatonaCatona@yahoo.com anyone know them? kiinda freaked out when I got it.

    Stay away. I can tell by the wording it's from a guy in Africa that has been banned from this site for being a scammer.

    ok thank you redwolf.
  4. The email comes back to a bunch of vietnamese "girly" sites - his screen name is Catona44 on those sites. The only CITES he knows about are Porn sites. ;D

    He's been on here with a few different names. Patrick J will remember theophilus, or ANTWEPS, or even NYENTI.
    Same M.O.
  6. Watch out for this email address also mang.williams@yahoo.com
    I inquired about some hide this guy had for sale . This guy was real pushy and said the exact same thing about updating his cities papers and that I would only pay after I received my hides, needless to say I didn't just fall off a turnip truck. This guy emailed me every day for 1 week .This is his last email to me.

    Hello Daniel, i told you i have my cites that is already updated and would like you to get these items for it is legal and i get my payment after you receive the skins.
    If willing, let me know so that i can update my CITES and send to you to check so that we can make arrangement for the shipping.

    When someone pushes to sell you some thing you know there is something wrong. When in doubt get the f*** out.

    do not accept the package so it gets sent back to him. he will also get billed for return.
  9. I figured that Redwolf, the similarities in the wording are the exact same.
    The sad thing about this is ,somebody IS going to get taken by this guy
  10. ... I am so glad that I looked at this.

    Got an email earlier today (before this was posted) from the same address Julia had been corresponding with asking me if I was interested in a life-size black bear. I said I needed to see photos, and they sent pictures of two rugs and a whitetail shoulder mount form... that's when I started getting suspicious.

    After reading this, I know not to bother sending a reply. I really do love here how everyone looks out for each other and posts good/bad dealings accordingly.

    Thanks for posting! Now to get my bears from someone I know...

    Patrick J You've got me mistaken for someone else

    Looks like Dong Dong Jia is at it again.

    Patrick J You've got me mistaken for someone else

    Yeah those as well and about 15 others. I had better luck tracking him years ago with the name dong dong jia. Most of your hits will come back to a scam baiter site where people actualy get a kick out of messing with scammers
  16. Hmm. Yep, he contacted me as well when I was looking for form heads. The wording in the email made me think it was rather fishy, so I didn't even bother responding.

    look what I got in my inbox THIS MORNING: I can help you get them for nothing in return . You sound funny and just the way your statement came sounds a bit rude. I am a business man and you wanted help, you would have told me.

    Anyway i have kept them at the agency and they are awaiting shipment to you. I had paid for registration, shipping costs and pls, it gonna look somehow to claim them back from the agency since i had spent moneys for their shipment.

    So i have attached details regarding the documents that you will have to get hold of, and once the agency contacts you they will send you your tracking code.

    Pls if you want to satisfy me, i will like a digital camera in return since you are not paying for the skins.

    Pls do not forget to remind me as soon as the agency contacts you.

    Is anyone here on trapperman.com ? when i registered on that site i had to send a letter AND A PHONE call to the forum administrator just before he would even sign me on . Maybe we should look into this to keep these A$$ O off of this site so our members dont get ripped off . You guys are amazing catching these dirt ball skum bags early but what about the other members that dont speak up and ask the "fishy questions". just food for thought

    He sure has come up with some interesting ways (lies) to get money out of anyone who is willing to fall for this scam. Selling on craigslist is just as bad. phil
