Good police work would use a google search article to put two and two together and have the man arrested.

Mad about Jack

Put it this way, between the Nigerian scammers (2 calls and 1 email last night) and this idjit, it keeps me on my toes. I was contacted by 5 different Nigerian fellas on Monday alone, this was telephone calls, not to mention the emails and sms's.

I quote from one of the emails from Pharrel Miles, note the single line type response :

 

where are you located and tell me more about it.what the price you give it away.

I sell stuff through other facilities as well, the scammers seem to be latched onto junkmail at the moment, I clearly state the condition of the item as brand new, and at the bottom is a comment about scammers beware.

 

I get a mail with this gem "What is the present condition of this item...does it have any fault..?" from a Perpetua Goncalves at a gmail account.

 

I have come to the conclusion, if it has a gmail account with an exotic or weird name, its a scammer.

Also besides the exotic, very English names as surnames, ie: David James or Miles David to mention a few. If they actually phone you it sounds like a train station at peak hour in the back ground.

Called one of these fruits back on the sms number, got through to what actually did sound like a call centre, oddly enough.
