Default Beware of the "Robert Smith" scam

I received a first email about buying footrests and paying with a credit card and already got ticked off by the name "Robert Smith" and the urgency of the matter. Then I replied, asking for how many units and which model. The second email, 24 hours later, was a request for 100 camber/adjuster kits, brackets only (I don't sell those BTW)... The dude was obviously fishing. Sellers beware. The reason why I post this warning on this forum is because that's the only forum where I sell footrests, and somebody else sells camber/toe kits.

When I googled "robertequipment@gmail.com" I found other stuff like that with basically the same text and structure.

http://www.depbiz.com/buyers/furnitu...04-02/284.html

What I received

"Am Mr. Robert Smith And I would like to order some Foot Rest. What would be the price for supply only so that i can Quote you with the Quantity i want to order..Also what types of credit card do you accept as payment..? Thank you and reply ASAP. Best regards"

"I need 100pcs of the Camber or Toe Correction Kit - Brackets Only. What will be the total cost as well as the types of credit cards you accept? Respond ASAP. Thanks"

No, but me love you long time.

I also wondered about using the name "Robert Smith". Many scammers use the same boring name, which triggers an alarm automatically. If I were to scam Nigerians, would I present myself as "Kunta Kinte" or "Manu Dibango"?

Fela Kuti, perhaps? :-)

Funny, but this thread reads like one on my Facebook wall. That one included a couple of "Confucius say" comments that generated a stern admonition for our lack of cultural sensitivity.

From my old college roommate, no less!

WTF? I ain't sayin' nothin' to nobody. :-)

My old friend's favorite pseudonym used to be Dawn Wrigley, or, as necessary, Don Wrigley.

Worked either way.

Willy Phister? I have used it with telemarketers. You know, as the head of the household answer.

Can't wait to receive a spam from "John Doe" from a scammer trying to blend in within the North American culture..
