Varúð svikahrappar, vilja kaupa „Spliff hjól!“ á uppsprengdu verði! :)

Ég fékk tölvupóst í gærmorgun frá einhverjum snillingi sem hafði

Husqvarna '84 aka. Husqvarna 2008 Spliffbike á 1200 þús / 9000 usd er góður díll!

„mikinn áhuga“ á að kaupa hjólið mitt. Hann vissi reyndar ekki hvaða hjól en var samt rosa áhugasamur um eitthvert hjól, helst sport, eða dirt og líka spliff-hjól og verðið var aukaatriði! Right!  Sumsagt, hér var einhver svikahrappur á ferð sem vissi ekkert um mótorhjól.

Fréttablaðið birti frásögn nýlega um svipað dæmi og kvikindið er greinilega enn að. Þarna var sem sagt svikahrappur á ferð sem reynir allt til að reyna að kaupa eitthvað af fólki og hafa svo af því fé með því að senda tilkynningu að hafa greitt of háa upphæð og að seljandinn verði að millifæra mismuninn til baka svo salan geti farið fram.  Í eftirfarandi samskiptum sést hvað þetta lið er ótrúlega vitlaust en um leið fjandi útsmogið að stæla tölvupósta frá PayPal. Ég fékk jafnvel póst frá „starfsmanni PayPal“ í gegnum fake-tölvupóstaddressu. Eftirfarandi póstar lýsa þessu ágætlega – góðar stundir í lestrinum og varið ykkur á erlendum kauptilboðum sem virðast of góð til að geta verið sönn!

Kveðja, Keli formaður VÍK

Thank you for the photo and agree with the 9000usd, I would love to purchase this!


I mentioned before this is precisely what I’m after and so am keen to get the ball rolling as soon as possible!


I think the easiest way to pay is through pay pal, i know they are reliable and secure and i usually find this the most efficient method.


Oh and before i forget i will arrange for pick up myself to my home so you won’t incur any extra costs or anything like that.


Hope to hear back from you soon.

Hi, I got the email from Paypal stating that I need to transfer 1200 usd back before payment can be processed. Sorry, that’s not part of the deal and besided I don’t have that kind of money available. Why don’t you just cancel the PP payment and transfer the money to my account, that would be easiest and quickest.

Simple – ask for a refund. Paypal gives no trouble with that. Besides I don’t have that kind of money available. Why don’t you just cancel the PP payment and transfer the money to my account, that would be easiest and quickest.

I would have love to make the bank transfer, due to some reason, paypal is the easiest way for me at the moment. Like how much can you come up with? paypal just need to see proof that this transaction is legit, that all.

I would really love your co-operation.

That’s too bad since I haven’t received the money yet , no money = no bike ! 🙁
Þegar hér var komið sögu gafst ég upp á þessu rugli og sendi tilkynningu á Hotmail, PayPal og Gmail um þennan snilling og vona að þeir hafi amk. lokað á emailin og rakið IP-töluna hans og stoppað hann í frekari svikum.

Þetta var auðvitað stórskemmtilegt allt saman EN grínlaust þá er þetta verulega ágengt lið og án efa eru einhverjir að falla í þessa gryfju senda þessum fávitum peninga. Mig langaði því að deila þessum samskiptum með ykkur og vona að enginn hér á landi falli fyrir þessum svikahröppum. Góða helgi.


Ps. ég er enn að fá pósta frá snillingnum – nú er hann farinn að prútta 1.200 dollara niður til að reyna að ná einhverju af mér. :))

5 hugrenningar um “Varúð svikahrappar, vilja kaupa „Spliff hjól!“ á uppsprengdu verði! :)”

  1. Sælir ég var að fá tilboð frá þessum aðila í Hondu 450 sem er skráð til sölu á síðunni. Mundi eftir umfjöllun um PayPal svindl og fann þessa umfjöllun hjá þér. Það væri ráð hjá vefstjóra að setja sem standard texta í tölvupóstinn sem við fáum í gegnum síðuna aðvörun um erlenda Paypal svindlara.

  2. Ok, það er ágætis ábending. Hákon, geturðu bætt því inn á auglýsingavefinn?
    Annars er þetta framhaldssaga, þar sem ég er búinn að fá marga misósvífna pósta til viðbótar frá annarri email addressu. Ég er búinn að hafa gaman af því að rugla í honum en síðasti póstur innihélt subjectið: „*** YOUR LIFE IS AT RISK ***August 31, 2011“

    Þar er hann að hóta mér FBI og að ég hafi verra af ég borga ekki. Þá gafst ég upp og sendi póstinn á FBI ásamt Ip-tölunni hans og tilkynnti að hann væri að nota þeirra nafn í netsvindli. Þeir geta varla verið ánægðir með það.
    Kv. Keli

  3. Þessi snillingur var alveg óður að kaupa af mér pústkerfi sem hann hélt að væri hjól

    Ég svaraði honum farðu í rassgat svindlhaus

    Virðist hafa fattað að hann komst ekki lengra 🙂

  4. Fékk einmitt póst frá þessum fyrir stuttu. Hafði miklar vafasemdir um þetta en núna veit ég að þetta er svindl. Ákvað að fokka í honum og spurja hann hvort hann vildi að ég breytt hjólinu úr spliff í gengju. 😉
