Really? Scam....well, I suppose it could be...but they did tell us about a lot of money and tons of business? I think I'll give them my private acct numbers so they can wire the down payment directly to me. lol

I haven't seen these types of scam emails on Trulia - but plenty as direct emails.  Hard to believe someone would fall for it, but I understand it's big business for the scammers.

I have gotten those, but not through Active Rain or Trulia. Not sure where they are finding me.

Morris, the closest I ever got to falling for one of these was a rental scam. Had it not been for my very savvy children I'd have gone all in. Some are pretty tricky but this was so poorly and blatantly obvious and so pathetic. Henry can't even speak English.

Ann, hold on I think this is just the tip of the Iceberg. As for not related AR & Trulia hits you might check your public advertising forums.

Ah, they just keep on coming.  Scams upon scams.  Unfortunately what keeps motivating them must be that enough folks respond and fall for it to make it worthwhile.  Have a great weekend.

I was having dinner last night and overheard people in the next booth. They said they mailed $1,000 and are waiting for the $2,000,000. My dinner companion and I just chuckled.

Leolinda, That is funny, however, so sad. Are there really people out there in today's high tech world that are foolish and uninformed enough to fall for these schemes? I once had a business partner who's favorite adage was "There's a new sucker born every 5 minutes. Needless to say we weren't partners very long.
