Report: Another scammer to report I'm afraid and a bogus website going by the names of FS-verification and www.FSdate.com. I must admit, this scammer nearly caught me off guard. I thought I had seen every scam or trick in the book. How wrong I was!
Recently, I advertised on Craigslist. Within the hour, I had received a reply from a scammer. In the initial email, the scammer attached a photo and pretended to be interested in me and asked for my photo, which I sent straight away. In the 2nd email, the scammer directed me to an ID verification site. According to the scammer, a bad experience had occurred in the past, so this site was designed to eliminate time wasters, murders, rapists etc... and I was told it was free of charge just to suck me in. I must admit, at first I thought what a good idea. So I clicked on the link to the verification site. Instantly, the homepage appeared with a Youtube video player containing a News clip about an internet murder. On the right of the screen was the sign up details to a bogus company called fs-verification or FSDate; requiring your personal information such as home address, date of birth, bank details, home phone/mobile number, security questions, email address and occupation details. Once confronted with the homepage, I decided to carry out a thorough investigation. It turns out, the scammer has used other fake names such as Taylor and the exact same photos send to me. Then alarm bells started to ring!!!
Craigslist don't recognise the bogus verification site, as being an approved ID investigations agency and Craigslist don't use such a service! I have nothing to worry about because I never reveal my bank details and I never send money full stop, but they do have my ip address!!!
Scammers are getting smarter and more devious each year. What I really hated about this scam; ok I understand there are scammers out there preying on lonely and naive guys, but when you use News clips of a brutally murdered young women, then you have over stepped the line of humanity and deserve to go straight to hell!
