Hiya,

I've posted an ad up on some website, so people have my email address etc, however how do I find out their legitimate? I've tried the usual FB and google search, no results.. is there anyway I can find out if this person is actually from the uk or just a scammer of sorts from Nigeria?

Thanks!

You dont, insist on cash on collection, do not give them your bank details either!!

Ask for an ebay ID or payment from a verified Paypal address only maybe?

What are you selling?
#2
Get them to mail you a home Conatct number.
#3
Im not selling anything per say, im renting...........................

I've seen alot of weird and wonderful people before but this person from the start was being a little.. 'open'........
Something you wouldnt normally say to a stranger via email.

LOL :roll:

Back to the subject on hand...... is there no way to track where an email is coming from when i have the email address? or is that something only hackers, FBI and movies can do? :thinking:

There are services like emailfinder but these are chargeable anf the information is not always great.

You are renting something out? You need to speak to this person on the phone or meet it seems.

Sorry, basically someone emailed me about renting the room then he/she really needed to tell me a secret (it goes into detail but i wont bore you with that)......... the secret was this:

I really feel like telling you this might be a regret.i am really interested in renting your place,due to my present situation and the fact that i have to relocate.

This is a very confidential discussion between you and i,I meet an American guy at a resort while doing some photo shot,and we've been friends for about 3months,he always travelled to Malaysia often,we had dinner once,he was a very nice guy who told me he was into Diamond business and i had no doubt to hesitate he was saying the truth because of his flambouyant life style.Just about two weeks ago He was arrested for drug trafficking and that is a death penalty here in asia,the day before he was arrested,he came to my house and entrusted a bag with me,he asked me he would get it back the next day before his flight back to Miami.and i never opened it,but i just did 3days ago after i was told he was convicted to death and i found it was filled with US dollars,attached is the picture of the bag that contains the money.I couldnt believe my eye's when i first set my eye's on the content inside.

The American guy has been sentenced already,am so confused and nervous,i dont know what to do and i cant tell any1 am so scared,i cant even turn the money over to the authourities because i am scared of my own life.the system here is quite corrupt and i am so terrified and scared for my life right now.I cant sleep,i am having eating disorder all because of this.i just cant tell anbody here,and i really need to talk to someone.Can i confide in you?.Attached is the picture of the bag.

Thank you

Not sure but think you check the IP of where the email was sent from: How to find the IP address of the email sender in Gmail, Yahoo mail, Hotmail, AOL, Outlook Express, etc
And then track the IP down ?
