He's still at it.... What a nice vacation this guy has been taking since 2012!  I found it odd when the text messages would come early AM and in on the east coast.  Either way, same phone number and exact message about vacatin and his sister... Waste of my time!

I told him to have his sister call me. I would meet her with the saw and she
could give me the cash. The saw would  will be sold to the first person that
wants to pay for it.

I just got a reply from this guy too. I always google the name and email address from any of my Craigslist ads and thankfully I did! Thank you all for posting here and keeping us informed. Obviously this guy hasn't been caught yet.  Too bad!

He used the name James Car and the email portpostalvx@gmail.com to inquire about an item I have for sale

yeap, I listed several craigslist ads yesterday and got two texts from this number for two entirely different items, claiming interest. total scam. i sell a lot on craigs and the guys post above, tells it all. They start out acting interested...then comes the big bull story and they want to send you a cashers check....blah blah blah. Sometimes i answer them and act like i believe!  , waste some of their time too. Never respond to a text that lists your ad then says still for sale or something similar. Who would take the time to text out YOUR ad ..then to ask a question.....only a program designed to answer many ads.....SCAMMER!!

I wouldn't sweat him having your info.  When you stop talking to him, he'll just move on to his next victim.  Much easier.  The way he wins is by doing this in volume, figuring if a small percentage of people send money, he wins.

Send it all to the police.  Since he's giving out a phone number, it must be possible for the police to track it if there is a big enough outcry for someone to do something about it.

He will send a bogus money order to you in excess of what he should.  He then asks you to be a nice guy and wire him the difference.  That's the scam part, because the bank will take back the money when they realize it's bogus, which takes a couple days.

This b*****d got me too!  I'm an idiot!
Googled the info before receiving $$ from him, but he does have my cell #.
What can he do with that...anything?  I'm keeping all this info and hoping this loser gets caught!
Any updates?

This just happened to me! Actually I'm going through it now! "JJ" sent me two MoneyGram money orders for $980.00 each and then claimed it was a mistake. I had window blinds on Craigslist for sale and he sent me a message exactly like the one you listed. Then after that, a few days later, this message arrived:

Message:
Hey...
I just realized that my idiot assistant overpaid you.... so please be cool and shoot me the difference via western union after you deposit the check in your bank, I Guess I have no other option but to trust you, but it's already done...sorry man... do me a favor and lemme know the diff before you send it to me.

JJ

I knew something was up so i refused to cash them. He would not have it and insisted I deposit these into my account and then sent him the difference. Even stating I could detuct $60.00 for my trouble. Now that I have caught on he won't return my messages.

I just got the same emails as everyone has posted.  When he asked for my personal info I said I was uncomfortable with that and he hasn't replied.  I'm  a little confused - I was selling some tickets worth about $90 to a kids train ride on Friday.  He did the whole money order plus $20 thing to me and said his assistant would pick them up.  How exactly would he scam me?  Sure, I wouldn't get my $90 for my tickets, but all he would get are tix to a kids event.  Was it my phone and address he was after?  And how could he use this?  Thanks.

Hello,

I will be paying you by a Money Order /certified cashier. It will take 3-5 business days for the payment to get to you, As for delivery,  I will make arrangements for the pick-up after you have received and cashed the payment. If this meets your approval, kindly get back to me, as soon as possible, with your name, phone # and mailing address where payment will be sent,so that I can have my sister get the Money Order /cashiers Check ready.

JJ

Which sounded weird enough for a bunch of old desktop parts that I googled his email address and landed here. Hope someone stops him soon. He got my hopes up I would be able to unload this crap quickly.

I have an active conversation going on with this guy.  He wants my cell number (no frickin way) - I just wonder if the fake check can be used as evidence if I get it to the right people who care.  Passing bad checks through the mail across state lines is a felony, I think.

The first guy who contacted me with this type of scam, I told him to send the money to the an address who happened to be the police chief. :)

I received an email just now from him saying: That is not my sister and please stop playing.. Are you willing to sell this for me..?

and I replied after saying: Are you kidding? Who is she then?, You guys looks a lot alike, I thought you were twins!!!!
Man, what you saying? I already sold it to your sister. Call her and confirm? I didn't know that you will call her that fast!!!!

And I got a call from him from the number you posted, and I replied with hey Jay, what's up. Your sister just came by, and he started saying this is not my sister, and I said why you hate her that much although you look a lot alike? He hanged up on me :). I'm def. reporting him to the police.

Take care everyone...... He is using the same number over and over.

I got trapped too just right now on November 25, 2012. I searched over his email and just came into this blog: He sent me using portpostalvx@gmail.com, and he sent me over my craigslist ad for selling my TV saying the following:

You got it still? If so, shoot me a Email. ,

and I answered with a yes, and he replied me back saying:

Hello,

peaceout

After I found out, I sent him back saying: Hey,

I got the money already :). Your sister did a good job dude.

Cheers

I got more replies from him saying : What do you mean..? How much did you get.. Can you send me a picture of the payment you received..?

I sent him back saying: Didn't you just send me a 100$ dollar. Your sister came by herself, she is so friendly. Lucky one. How is your trip back there in Europe?

This idiot got me. I'm so embarrassed and feel ridiculously stupid for going through with it because there were so many red flags. It's just that I was so busy, I didn't take the time to look into anything. Damn, I really am that naive. I don't know how the neurotransmitters in my brain are still firing. What astonishes me even more is that AFTER stealing my money this jerk is trying to negotiate with me. I've already reported him to the police and hopefully the feds will take over from now. I'm not expecting to ever see that money again, but I do want to help others whom have fallen victim to this crook. Hopefully, justice is served. I'll briefly go over what he does:

1) First he'll send this very long message about being "comfortable" with the transaction:

Thanks for your reply! I am quite comfortable with it and i will add $20 to the purchase price for you to hold it for me, I'm on a vacation in London but I will instruct my Sister at home to prepare and mail your payment,Please provide me with your full name, Address and your Phone number so that I can send your payment. I will be paying you by a Money Order /Cashiers check. It will take 3-5 business days for the payment to get to you, As for delivery,  I will make arrangements for the pick-up after you have received and cashed the payment. If this meets your approval, kindly get back to me, as soon as possible, with your name, phone # and mailing address where payment will be sent,so that I can have my sister get the Money Order /cashiers Check ready.
Thanks

2) Since I'm very busy I didn't get the chance to look at the check and deposit it, so he hassled me for a couple of weeks to deposit the check. AND I DID...I KNOW..STUPID. The check was for $1,750.50. I just wanted to get this guy off my back because he was sending threats and I had no idea who is was. There were several points where I questioned him about his story because it didn't make sense, but he was desperate. I don't think he does this to steal identities. If he does, it's to print a fake address on the envelope that the checks "come" from.

3) He said a bunch of things and I ended up depositing the check because my bank didn't inform me it was fraudulent until a week later. So, I thought he was telling the truth and I didn't want to keep any of his money. My naive and stupid a** trying to be a good samaritan ended up getting dooped.

4) He uses the number 4084302563. I texted him telling him I knew that he scammed and he said exactly this: "Will you just calm yourself... I am going to send you back your money.. k.. i just needed it at the time.." He also has the I know, WTF. Yeah right, like I'm going to believe that. After that text I told him that he's been reported and that he doesn't know who he's dealing with and then he has the NERVE to say "Yes i knw who am messing with and i knw you can do and undo.. But try to understand.. Anyway let work together and make money..." WHAT DOES THAT EVEN MEAN???? He wants to work together!?!? This guy is a worthless piece of crap!! I know he's just buying himself some time. He's scared and we're so close to catching him. Honestly, I'm also going to higher a PI and we're gonna get this guy. I won't stop until I do.

5) From doing my own research on this criminal, I know where he lives and he's still using the same number. His IP address also points to him living in California. Actually, I have his exact coordinates. He uses the names Jay, James, JJ, James Copper, Jerry, etc. I'll be getting a report on this guy sometime next week. I think they'll be able to catch him within this next few weeks because he's getting lazy and leaving trails like crazy. We'll catch him guys.

6) I've filed a report with the police and the feds. I've told them about everything I have on him and he really does think he's invincible and clever, but with a bit of collective effort and time I think we'll find him.

lol, he did the same thing to me, thank goodness i searched up his email address, it started sounding suspicious to me when i said that i was willing to keep it safe for him while he is on his "trip" and is willing to deliver, yet he still kept wanting my address and all that info

he used 2 email addresses, gaertreon006@gmail.com and portpostalvx@gmail.com

There are a few more things that you'll need to do, so he won't be able to access your information: block him from your email (you'll have to look up the instructions for this on the Internet, because I don't know how to do it), check your phone bill, block him from calling you (if that's how he reached you), and check your accounts for unauthorized debits. This will prevent, or at least make you aware of anything he may be doing behind your back so you can defend yourself. A lot of people on whocallsme think they're in the clear when they've stopped dealing with a scammer, but that isn't always the case. If they opened his emails or replied to the SMS, they can download a virus that copies their sim card (so they can make calls at the victim's expense) phonebook (so they can scam the victim's friends and relatives), photos (to use in romance scams) and bank information.
Sorry to scare you, but people need to be made aware of how evil the scammers are. This guy has probably sent his message out to thousands, so he can bring them to financial ruin while living the high life on their money.
If anyone reads this warning before replying to the scammer, report his emails as spam or delete the SMS.
