|+1 Scam email I advertised an item on Let Go. Lady emailed me saying she wanted to buy it and would send me a cheque for a larger amount which would include the movers fee. A third party, Timothy Johnson, sent an email with a cashiers cheque for $1000 more than my item cost. I didn’t cash it as it told me to log into my bank account etc. I knew it was a scam. The lady is Lisa Goyzman and her email is firstname.lastname@example.org. I reported it and sent an email to RBC telling them the cashiers cheque looked to be from them. |

Thanks to this website and the first report, I did not continue a transaction with "Lisa Goyzman". Almost identical situation as first reported, though the name on Let Go, which is where I was first contacted, was "Theo" from Toronto and no other info attached to the Let Go profile other than the account was NOT verified. Most others users have a least one point of verification on their profile.
I have now insisted on cash only upon pickup for my item in my latest email to them and suggested that cheques, including cashier cheques, can be a part of a scam. I suggested that they must have heard about these type of scams before! Haha. Awaiting to see if "Lisa" or "Theo" respond.
Sidenote, my item is priced over $1200 so I imagine that others with higher priced items may be contacted specifically.
Since you’re here …
we have a small favour to ask. More people are visting Scamdex and Scamalot than ever but advertising revenues are falling fast and we have no 'product' to sell.
And unlike many informational websites, we haven’t put up a paywall or membership barrier – we want to keep our site as open as we can.
So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Scamdex/Scamalot websites takes a lot of time, money and hard work to keep running. We do this because we
hate to see our fellow humans getting scammed out of their hard-earned money by low-lives.
