no money grams!
my parents tried to buy me a car a long time ago and they found something on cg, it was a scam and we lost like 4k
if you look at the craigslist rules, it says dont do money grams

i dunno how they work but they are not to be trusted i tell ya

West Africa = Nigeria aka internet fraud/ scam originators.

In other words, keep your Craiglslist sales local.

Not sure how Money Gram works, never used it, but I assume it is just like Paypal. In that case a buyer can give the money so the cash is in your account and then say they never received the item they purchased and withdraw the money back. Even if you cashed out your account and spent the money PayPal (& I assume Money Gram) will charge for the loss. Not paying the sum back to Paypal damages your credit score.

I wouldn't do it.

Take the money and send a broken phone? Scan the scammer.. If the bank declares forgery you got the cash anyways. Fuck that shit you know he is trying to scam. I would fuck with him

Wow, you need to educate yourself. Do a simple Google search for Money Gram Scams. Even Money Gram warns consumers about it. :rolleyes: :smoke:


I don't fuck with money grams anyway...never have...so maybe I should educate myself on a payment system I'll never use.
