Reporting Scammer to Police - Looking for Similar Expierences

Classified Ad Type: 


Unfortunately, a scammer recently attempted to deceive a Koreabridge user selling something in the classified section. The scammer appeared to be a reasonable buyer at first, but concocted a story about needing to use unusual payment methods, presented what appeared to be documentation of payment, and tried to extract fees in order to release payment. 

The Koreabridge user is pursuing the matter with the police and looking for anyone else who has had a similar experience. In particular, they'd like to include email exchanges as part of the evidence against the scammer.  If you have encountered anything like this, please contact [email protected]
