Mrs Elizabeth Benson Craigslist scam Internet
3rd of Jul, 2011 by User162487
I posted two items i wanted to sell in Craigslist and Mrs Elizabeth Benson [[email protected]] This is her response:
"Thank you for getting back to me. Am okay with the price and
condition, though I'll be using the services of a mover who will come
for the pick up on my behalf because I'm currently away for a
contracting Job but I will send a Certified check through my Bank to
cover the cost. The check will be delivered to you next day air
service by a reliable courier company. Please do provide me with your
full mailing address, and also indicate your final price, the Name
that should be on check and finally a cell phone #. I will also advise
you to discard any other buyer, Kindly delete the posting because am
serious in buying it, when the Funds Clears then pick-up arrangement
follows. I will want your honesty on this because am a God fearing
person. waiting to read from you soon." It sounded weird because i asked which one of the two products she wanted and she didnt address that in the response in addition to the strange mover picking up etc... I googled her email address and a link brought me to this website. someone else reported them with a very similar description. Stay away from this people.

We just received an inquiry about our vacation rental from a Liz (Elizabeth) Benson who gave an Australian address. She also described herself as a God fearing person! Her email address is [email protected]
I am sure any check she would mail is a fraud!

I just rec'd an email from Elizabeth Benson as well. I have a chair lift for $1500 for sale and same thing she said she needed my address and that she would overnight me a check and then arrange to it up. How she was in town visiting her son but now she isn't and can not meet with me. Loved the part where she said she hope I am honest since she is a god fearing person, really don't think she goes to the same church I do.

Hello Thanks for the prompt response and i will love to make an
instant purchase i Saw your advert on Craig and would want to make an
immediate purchase . I will like you to withdraw the advert from
Craig i don't mind adding an extra $40 for you to take the advert
down from Craig so that i can be rest assured that am in hand of the
item.I don't have time to come take a look. I will be paying via
certified check or cashier check, and it will be over night payment
.You don't need to bother your self with the shipment OK, i will take
care of that. So i will need you to provide me with the following
information to facilitate the mailing of the check. (NOT P.O BOX)

Name to be on the check____
Home address____

Cell phone #______


I would forward all your details to my secretary to make the payment

My response to Mrs. Benson...

From;
"Dennis ...
That sounds just great...why wait for the check, you just come and get them, I TRUST YOU...the check will come, I have no reason to doubt you are an honest person!
Please send check and your info to;
1100 Atlantic St # 3 Milford, MI 48381-2075
When you come to pickup, please try to have some time available so we can get to know each other...I have been very lonely, after having just murdered my wife...perhaps you heard about that "thing" in Grosse Point".

So, I need friends and what better way to get to know someone over the sale of some tires.
Look forward to hearing from you real soon. I am sure you are a very attractive person!

Very much looking forward to our meeting.

Sorry for my late response... I appreciate your quick response and am
happy you are selling to me. I got your details and have forward it to
my secretary, payment has been issued out to your location via FedEx
courier service, I will email you with the tracking number for
confirmation as soon as am provided with it. I'm sorry to inform you
that the mover funds was accidentally added to the payment that was
sent to you so i hope i can trust you with the difference. I will
inform you on how the added mover funds will be getting back for
pick-up arrangement and I will also advise you to discard any other
buyer, delete the add from the web and be on a look out for the
payment.

Thank you!
Mrs Elizabeth Benson

"Dennis ...

Mrs Elizabeth Benson, may I call you Elizabeth, it seems like we have know eachother for such a long time and my dear late Great Dane was named Elizabeth, after my Mother's postman. I would so much like to call you "Elizabeth".

There were rumors that I may have been a product of the Postman as he spent so much time around the house when "Dad" was at work. He would park his truck behind the garage and I would play in it and open mail that I found attractive.

I, personally don't believe the rumors as he was from St. Croix, and when I visited the island with my second wife, I didn't see anyone who looked lust like me.

I'm looking forward to the check. I'm in deperate need of another handgun, as I found it necessary to dispose of my "primary piece" the day of "the incident".

Again, on the day of pickup, please allow a good amount of time for us to get acquainted, as I mentioned, I am very lonely. Perhaps we can go to a local cafe and have potato pancakes, they are my favorite, I like them with a lot of sour cream. Unhealthy on a regular basis, but I have not had them since my cat died. I know just the spot.

Looking forward to meeting you, and don't fret over the "mover funds" being included in my payment, I have just received a rather large inheritance and am "flush with cash". I do hope you don't mind the difference in cash, as I don't trust the banks since my brief incarceration, so I have the cash hidden in the little garden behind my apartment in a shoe box under dead hydrangia plant labeled; "pictures".

I can't wait to introduce you to my new cat, "Stinky", I found her at a neighbors house, she seemed to like me at the time, now all she wants is to get out. I had to put her in the freezer the other day just to get her attention.

Sincerely,

This just happened to me. I sent information minus the phone number. What kind of scam is this?
3076 days ago by Nemoann
We have an auto for sale, the wording and details are to similar. This is an obvious scam and I advise all to use extreme caution. Thanks to all who have posted, if we keep the postings going with the new email used, it helps everyone be alerted.

Here is the email for consideration ~

I JUST GOT THE same kind of email from the Mrs Elizabeth Benson from [email protected]
3070 days ago by Alwin Ning
This Elizabeth Benson is probably another facade for a "Smith Ivanova" who in turn is likely a pseudonym to conceal an escapade of fraud. I received a series of email from these senders offering to buy my merchandise on Craigslist sight unseen and a supersized check which is more likely a computer concoction from thin air. My local police want to stay away from these scam artists because of the difficulty for them to trace with their limited resources.

I urge all of you to log on to www.ic3.gov to lodge a complaint. This is an Internet Crime Complaint Center, a partnership between the FBI and National White Collar Crime Center, funded by the Bureau of Justice Assistance. I have already done so. When enough people complain about this scheme, the FBI may be inclined to pursue these people. Somebody has to show up in person to collect the money at Western Union. This is the time to nab the scum of the earth. If you all like to network with me, here is my email address: [email protected]

I clicked on the "SHOW ORIGINAL" tab on the email and found her other email address.. the [email protected] WHen I googled that there are numerous sites that say she/he/whoever sells bulldogs. Then I saw THIS site. The return address I got for her in my email shows up as :

Oh my I got the same emails from her but she gave herself away as a scammer because I received two emails for both items I have listed separately! And yes she said the same thing " I hope your honest because I am a god fearing person" apparently her god believes in ripping people off! What I'd like to know is if we have all been posting about her fraud why the heck is she getting away with this? And why hasent she been investigated!

Dear Mrs Elizabeth Benson,
I can wait until you get back. I cannot wait to meet you. Maybe we can have lunch if you find the time. That of course is after my rottweiler eats you for his lunch because that is where i am delivering you to his dog bowl. Kong awaits your arrival, as after he chews your ass he will be handing you over to Long Beach Police Department detectives. So they can chew your ass out somemore. It seems alot of police personnel are searching for you all over the Unitied States. I would love to be the ONE who hand you over to them.

Hurry Home,


You like the way he/she turns it around: It needs me to be honest?????!!! Scam Artist

Same thing here... I had a sofa listed on CraigsList.org for $500... Crazy, I guess that this person is preying on innocent people hoping that they will deposit her fraud check and pull out the cash for the "accidently added movers expense" on top of hoping one will ship the item. Not only will the check come back bounced for unable to locate or NSF or some other reason, one will alos have lost the item that was shipped. Again, Carzy! (Here is the response from Mrs. Elizabeth Benson) Sorry Elizabeth, I'm not that stupid, have a nice life and I hope that you experience a little karma!
