Scam Email: Teresa Palmer

Here is a scammer that has put a really long number in their disposable email account, no doubt setting up hundreds of these to use in their scam.

In this particular scam, the scammer is saying they will pay with paypal - because users think this is the safe way to avoid scammers. But it is not. What the scammer does is they create a fake payment confirmation email that looks exactly like it is coming from paypal, but it is not. There is no money sent to paypal. But the trusting victim thinks money has been sent. The scammer is hoping before the victim ever bothers to manually check their paypal account, they will have already forwarded money to the scammer via wire transfer (supposedly for the nonexistent shipper) and the scam is already over and the money gone. Doesn't work in every case, but unfortunately, it works in far too many cases.

Moral of the story? Always open a brand new browser window, type in manually and log into your account and check it before sending any money anywhere.

Bottomline moral of the story? NEVER ever ever wire money to someone. Make this rule for yourself and you will avoid this scam.

    As you can see thats twice i had emails trying to scam me for my original art works on same piece of art through!!!
    thinking of closing that shop down now

    just want everyone to be aware of this! as this person not logged yet as art scammer

  2. Thanks for writing in! It is good to log variations in their fake names and disposable email accounts that have not been put out there yet. It really does help others who are receiving these same emails.

    Did that email have a fake name associated with it? I'd like to put it on my scammers list but I typically put a name and an email. Let me know. Thanks again for sharing!
