My girlfriend was selling her computer on craigslist, and was contacted by an individual with the Email address "smithcole69@gmail.com" The agreed upon price was $200. Later, she recieved a check from a university for $3000. When she contacted him about it, he said to take her $200, and to give the rest to his shipper when he picked up the computer. At this point, she assumed it was some sort of scam, so she backed out. Later, he sent her an email, titled "YOU ARE GOING TO BE ARRESTED BY FBI IF I COULD NOT HEAR ANYTHING FROM YOU AGAIN"

"Hi ***** *********
Why such a big silence that i did not hear anything from you again when you have you receive my check and i think i told you before i send you the check and i dont have any othet mis to send the money to my shipper cause my shipper we be at your location latest on monday for the pick-up of the item and he still have some other item to pick up for me around your location there and i want it it ship it to be ship together ,
So i decide to give you this message for the last message if did not hear from you again i ma going to inform the FBI on this issue and i bet you ,you will be arrested as soon as possible ,so to avoid this just make sure that you have the payment clear latest on monday and deduct your item paymnet with the runinig aroud that i gave to you and easily forward the remaning money back to my shipper western union address here is my shipping firm infomation

Name: ........... Randy R Vessell
Street Ad........100 N Broadway Ave

And i will want you to respon to my message immediatly that you receive it and as soon as you get it done just try and get back to me with the western union information such as............MTCN 10 DIGIT NUMBER SENDER NAME, SENDER ADDRESS AND THE AMOUNT SEND.

And finally also get back to me the time that you are going to be available for the pick-up,I will be looking forward to read from you A.S.A.P,Thanks so much for your usual co-operation in this
transaction .
Best Regard.

We responded, telling him that we would have no part in this, and immediately started doing research. And found another occurence in West Virginia where he ripped off another woman for $700 by using a fake shipping company.
