I am plagued daily by scammers that register and then hit my advertisers with a barrage of about 40 form emails in a half hour period. By the time someone reports this or I catch it and ban the scammer, the damage is already done.
Since I have good people on my board, they are naive and gullible about scammers. I have added the message below to all blind email ad responses through my system. Some users openly give a phone number and/or their email address in the ad. HOW DO I AUTOMATICALLY SEND OUT THIS SAME MESSAGE in the form of an ad confirmation email so I can put the advertiser on notice immediately upon posting their ads? (They obviously don't read what I've written on my site about scammers. Maybe they will read a direct and personal email from me. The jerks think my attached message in the scammer's email is added by the scammer.)
Beware of SCAMMERS with forged cashier's checks or counterfeit money orders! The scheme will involve a check made out for more than your asking price. They will want you to quickly WIRE excess money back to them or their shipper. Your bank will not so politely inform you after the fact that you are responsible! Sender's originating IP address: (included the senders IP number) - Use these numbers to report abuse.
