Kijiji paypal scams: Lisa Macedo and Mary Cole are fake!

I'm seeing an awful lot of traffic here lately from people looking for information on Kijiji paypal scams. People are thankfully suspicious enough about the people offering to buy their stuff that they search the names of the senders. They end up hear learning about the fraud they just avoided.

If you get an email from a Lisa Macedo, or a Mary Cole, or Julie Chen or any of the other made-up names offering to buy your item without seeing it, asking you to ship it because they're in a foreign place and can't see what you're selling, it IS a scam.

I'm not saying it might be a scam or that you should proceed with caution. I'm saying it's a fraud, it's baloney, it's entirely bogus and you should absolutely not proceed.

According to comments on a post from YouSuckatKijiji.com more than a year ago, some of the fake names used over and over again by these scammers include but are not limited to:

  • Julie Chen or Julie-mansor Chen - juliechen1983@gmail.com or chenjulie0@gmail.com for example 
  • Mike Goodrich - MikeGoodrichw1@gmail.com 
  • Veronica Wilson - veronicawilson1236@gmail.com 
  • Charlie-Carter Morgan 
  • Mary Cole 

Here's the sort of email you might get:
"Thanks for the response Does it need anything to be replace or repair?if theirs please specify,i will take it for the listed price,Payment will be sent using PayPal and i will handle the PayPal surcharge as well.I will arrange with someone to have this picked up for your location once i have paid as i am out of town at the moment. I would appreciate if you email me with more pictures (if available) too,since i won't be be able to see this in person,what's the PayPal email to send funds to in order for me to pay you ASAP. "

If you landed here because you searched for any of the text above: congratulations. You're the target of fraud.

You might also get a Paypal offer by text message for your Kijiji listing. Be smart. Don't fall for it.

Remember: Deal in person. Deal locally. Use cash.

Understand? If you ship to someone you don't know without having real cash money in your hand, you are a fool. Don't do it. These scams are easy to avoid. Avoid them.

Thanks for the prompt response.I'm Okay with the condition of the Bike,
as i have already go through it on the ad but just trying to make
little inquiry from you, I'm ready to buy it now as a gift for my
Daughter, I'm at sea at the moment as I'm a Navy Officer,and due to
the nature of my Job.....phone calls making and visiting of website

you a Text regarding it. I really want it to be a surprise for my
Daughter i won't let her know anything about it until it gets
delivered to her, i am sure she will be more than happy with it. I
insisted on paypal because i don't have access to my bank account
online as i don't have internet banking, but i can pay from my paypal
account, as i have my bank a/c attached to it,Get back to me with your
paypal email and the price so i can proceed with the payment quickly,
and sorry if you don't have an Account, you sign-up for a paypal
personal account www.paypal.com, it is very fast and easy to set up.
And there is a shipping company pick up agent that will come for the
pick up after the payment has been sorted out.

Hey all. Please add Emily Syntire to the list of names to watch for. I am currently having an email discussion insisting I use paypal. I keep refusing. Then I did a search and found this site. I have received an email WORD FOR WORD, even the same spelling mistakes as mentioned above in the messages you might get. Obviously the same person. I have reported the email, but unfortunately, this will not catch the bastard. All we can do is let others know. Again, the name EMILY SYNTIRE. Be careful.

Also received an email from esyntire@gmail.com ... spider senses were up since this person has not even seen the boat I am selling .. .glad I googled it!

Text of email was: "Thanks for your reply,i just wanted to make sure all bases are covered !I'm satisfied with the condition but how long have you owned it?? and what's your lowest price for it. I love a bargain, so i would like to get it as soon as i can.I would be able to make payment through paypal, i find it the easiest way to use my credit card safely and is a safe and reliable method of payment... Let me know your price for it .I hope to hear from you soon, and i will make all transportation preparations for the it to be transported to my home."

Word for word the same message! Not sure how the fraud works? They want a PayPal email so obviously they can somehow access the personal information from that information?
Thanks for the heads up, I am on my way to delete the communication!
The old adage appears to be true "if it sounds too good to be true, it is!"

I have also been scammed by this scam creep. I went as far as setting up a PayPal account (although I felt something was not quite right) and then when "she" sent the mailing info it said Nigeria and she wanted the answers to my confidential questions. I immediately deleted the pay pal accounts, changed all my passwords and contacted Pay Pal for investigation. I now am getting bogus invoices from "her" saying I owe her $600 and the FBI will be investigation and charging me if I don't pay up. What a piece of work this "Emily" is. Add Keshia David to this list as well.

January 7, 2014 at 12:44 PM

Yes, Keshia David is the latest name to add, "she" is trying to purchase furniture from me as we speak. I just sent her a legit paypal invoice, and I'm waiting for the reply where she claims she needs some extra payment...is it wrong to toy with these people?

I've received many of these emails in the past as I move a lot of products thru Toronto Kijiji. Last night I received and email from "Emily Syntire <emilysyntire123@gmail.com" asking the standard cut and paste bad spelling/bad grammar request for my PayPal account info. I contacted the Toronto Internet Fraud division but they said there is nothing they can do about it. What the fuck do you mean there is nothing they can do about it I asked! It's fraud, and it's on the internet.

MAYBE IF PEOPLE START CALLING THE POLICE THEY WILL BE FORCED TO DO THEIR JOBS AND CATCH THESE MOTHERFUCKERS!

It is important we know the status of the merchandise bought from you by one of our clients, Emily Syntire with Transaction ID:9XR6056157684563M, otherwise legal action will be taken against you since you have not e-mailed us the western union money transfer information and scanned receipt of the western union money transfer.

You are now mandated to transfer the sum of $1,100.00 CAD to the buyer's shipping company as part of the amount to send and email us the proof of transfer within the next 24hrs, failure to do so would result to the involvement of the FBI for violating PayPal's instructions and users agreement in act of the 1999 Law in collaboration with the World Law Enforcement Agency.

I would have love to come for the viewing by the weekend, but My place is way too far from there in which i am located in Cape Breton. So i thought of how to make this transaction work between us, which i came to conclusion with my husband to use a courier company to pick up the item from your place but we will send the money to your account first and after you get the money in your account, the pick up company will come to help us carry it. Since i'd not be seeing the item before i purchase it, i would like you to send some recent pictures of its present state to be sure you still have it and its in good condition. If the pictures pleases me, then we can go ahead with the transaction and will send the money to you without delay.... Lest i forget, i would be transferring the funds to you through PayPal. Please reply with your opinion ASAP Thanks.. ( I was happy until I got to the line about Pay Pal)Did you watch the video, when you see one you like see what time it is in the video and and I can stop by and take a bunch of pictures of the specific one you are interested in, we are not setup for pay pal, we do email money transfers instead. She sent back, I can only do paypal. I sent back. Emails from people who will not do EMT and will only do pay pal are always fraudulent that is why we only do EMT

I got the same email and phone text from Jane Herich. Word for word. Thought it was to easy so I googled her name and found this. I hate theives! Keep the posts coming with all the new names.

So I responded to her email:

Hi Jane

You should be ashamed of yourself ripping people off! You are a terrible scammer and a terrible human being praying on innocent people!

I hate thieves! You deserve to be punished and I hope you and your family experience bad karma!

Most of all I hope you get caught! You obvious don't believe in a higher power but you will get yours when your time comes.

Why don't you spend your time doing something positive and influential? Wait, your are incapable because you don't have a soul. Your are pure evil!

We texted back and forth for a bit, but I still wasn't quite comfortable about the distance. This is the first time I have used kijiji and only just found out from my daughter that it is a local buyer/seller setup, so then I obviously got suspicious and sent "Parker" a text saying I sold the piano locally.
I thought because they were talking of payment through Pay Pal that it was legit, but I guess the scammers have found some way around that too.

Jane Herich again here with number 514-437-1333. With email below.
have just completed the payment and you must have been notified in your email about the payment i made Via PayPal,Kindly check your e-mail inbox/junk/spam folder for confirmation of payment, I transferred a total sum of $12,585.00 Inclusive of the Shipping charges.
I added the amount of $1,085.00 paid Via PayPal, you will have to send $985.00 as an Upfront Payment to the Pick Up agent via Money Gram so they can make arrangements for the pick up date and exchange time Officially.
NOTE: PayPal won't credit the funds until they receive the Money Gram information from you due to Transaction Safety Tips regarding excess payments made for the Pick Up/Shipping charges.
I will need you to send the $985.00 to the Agency Headquarters where they confirm all commission payments via Money Gram Money Transfer, this can be done from any post office as they usually have Money Gram outlets there, the additional $100.00 was added to cover the Money Gram Transfer Sending Fee charged to send Money
This is the shipping address you have to send the money to ;-

I would appreciate if you email me with more pictures (if available) too,since i won't be be able to see this in person,what's the PayPal email to send funds to in order for me to pay you ASAP.

ASAP? of course I got suspicious.. then this

emily syntire (emilysyntire4life@gmail.com)

to me
Okay.. I will be paying the 2.9% PayPal surcharge from my account. So i will be paying directly into your PayPal account without any delay, and i hope you have a paypal account. If you have one already, just send me the address to send it to, which is the email address you use for it or you can send me a paypal money request, so once i receive the details i will go ahead with the payment through PayPal and then i will contact my shipping company after you get the payment. I will need your home address for the merchandise to be Picked Up by the Shipping Company..

thank GOD for my spidey senses
now
I want to plot my revenge -

Hi, I am Jane Herich. I'm satisfied with the price and i really want to buy it. I would have love to come for the viewing by the weekend, but My place is way too far from there in which i am located in Cape Breton. So i thought of how to make this transaction work between us, which i came to conclusion with my husband to use a courier company to pick up the item from your place but we will send the money to your account first and after you get the money in your account, the pick up company will come to help us carry it. Since i'd not be seeing the item before i purchase it, i would like you to send some recent pictures of its present state to be sure you still have it and its in good condition. If the pictures pleases me, then we can go ahead with the transaction and will send the money to you without delay.... Lest i forget, i would be transferring the funds to you through PayPal.

3rd e-mail: here i told her i don't have a paypal account
Hi, paypal is the easiest, simplest and most secure way to make payment online. You can open an account with them on www.paypal.com and when you open it, we transfer the money to your paypal account with the email you used to open the the account with them. As soon as we send the money to your account, then you can transfer it to your bank account or your credit card.


She could've got me very easily. I just created the account with paypal then I thought it was a bit too much just for a furniture and I googled her name just in case.
Thank you guys for reporting the account!

Same here with KATE JOHNSON regarding a table I put on Kijiji. "She" wanted to buy it for her son but lived in Yukon and was unable to view it at my place.

She sent me a money gram link with instructions on how to pay her 500$ upfront. When I declined, a young male with a foreign accent (claiming he was Kate's husband) CALLED MY HOUSE to insist on the transaction!

Scary. Be vigilant!!!

Due to my present location, my choices are limited and not often available by the phone. I am an honorable woman and you will receive your money cash in hand before this is picked up. However, it's easy and free to open a paypal account. Just go to there website www.paypal.com and sign up a personal account there. Paypal is the world leading payment master that protects both buyer/seller interest. You are on a secured transaction with paypal. Above all, it's like instant cash. As soon as you open an account, get back to me with the name and email that you linked with your paypal account and I will have your money sent asap. And due to the nature of my job and having being a paypal customer for the past 6 year with no charge back,I feel more comfortable sending my funds via paypal due to there various security measures at ensuring safe and secured transaction between both buyer/seller. But, if you feel otherwise, I totally understand
