Since when did 16' Casitas have ROOF Air ? I thought it was bogus, just for that reason.

Whoops, it was a Scamp, sorry.

That add is taken from a real add. The trailer shown is a Scamp, not a Casita. All sizes of Scamp can be ordered with roof air.

The real give away is that the "seller" doesn't want any contact except through his/her email. That email address is no longer valid. I wonder how long it'll take our scammer to figure that out.

Yup. I also tried to send an email to him hoping to have a little baiting fun. But alas his email no longer works.

Darn I missed the ebay auction. It's been pulled. Was it the same mysweetmonkey guy? He's going to be peeved when he finds out he can no longer access his email


Wonder how many deals in the works were left in his inbox?

I also contacted abuse@zappmobile.ro in Romania (his 84.247.60.117 IP). It's a prepaid romanian cell phone service.

Yes it was the mysweetmonkey guy.

I wonder if he even knows his email account has been canceled. OH! wouldn't it be great to have his cell phone service cut off. Good for you.

Wow Byron some go to great lengths to rid the world of scammers. I never knew there were so many out there baiting and trapping them.

I now need to figure out how to determine someone's IP address from their emails.

That's easy Bill. You want to "view headers" in your email program. If you have gmail, hotmail, or yahoo mail the option should be on the email when you are viewing it. Like "more options" "advanced" "view full headers", etc.

If you're using Outlook Express, right click on the message in your inbox > properties > details tab > message source button. You can copy the results to notepad. I used to do that before opening any suspect email in OE to see what the message actually contained, so I wouldn't infect myself with something.

I *think* that's how you do it in OE. I don't use it anymore, so my memory may be limited.

I see he's used at least 2 other email addresses, one on earthlink and a juno address.

Yes. The jukebox one was also shut down by earthlink. He has juno, excite.com, etc emails also. Besides Earthlink, all the other accounts can be setup with bogus info and free accounts.

To find where the ad is coming from, just right click the photo in the ad > properties > check the URL address. Many times it will point you to their directory online. That's how I found his aol one

ps = thx for the 419 link. Found message board that was a hoot!
