Craigslist Scams

Scams on Craigslist are so common nowadays that it is impossible not to run into one when looking for something to buy or when selling your items.   I became aware of how prevalent these scams are when I started using Craigs List as a means to get rid of some of my unused stuff, and more recently, buying a car.  I've heard from several friends of mine that scams also range from rentals, other services, pets, tickets, and other goods ranging from book shelves to boats; both on the buying side and sellers side.  However, if you know what to look for, you can identify these scams right away.

  • The scammer wants to correspond in an e-mail and only via e-mail.  There isn't a phone number or address listed or provided at all in any correspondence between you and the scammer.  The scammer never lets you know who they are or provides any way to contact them other than via e-mail.
  • The scammer insists on not doing any face-to-face transactions.  They may be out of town on business, stationed overseas, or are too busy to meet you in person.
  • The scammer is very ambiguous and won't leave contact information and won't put their name on the bottom of the e-mail.
  • The scammer has an odd name/surname combination that doesn't match their written lingo and e-mail persona, i.e. Nora Johnson, Linda Smith, Charles Lopez, David Jones, Emma Williams, and/or Robert Brown.
  • Usually you will find these e-mails written in poor, broken English (or even poorly written Spanish) as if it is a language they learned out of a book from the middle of Zimbabwe.  The grammar is off-putting, with a lot of obvious mistakes which a fifth-grader could identify.  When you read these e-mails, it is almost as if this person has never stepped foot in the USA.   
  • Odd wording in the e-mail referring to the way the transaction is to be handled makes you re-read the sentence almost in a foreign accent.  "The pickup agent will need you to wire the money you receive," "am okay with the price and the condition pasted on cl," or "i will need your honest and trust and your updating to end up this transaction," and "im include the shipment funds in the check because I don't have time to come down for a look of the items."  Other red-flag language to be cautious of is, "CERTIFIED CHECK,"  "escrow service," "mover," "convenient means," "i promise everything will go smoothly,"  (Yeah, go smoothly for the scammer!) and any other odd words used to manipulate you.
  • Whether buying or selling, the scammer always wants you to send them money or goods in a transfer or third party transaction.  There's no face-to-face, no handshake, no telephone call, or other good ol' fashioned American bartering method.  This is the biggest red flag you can come across!  Payments are usually made via Western Union to someone you have never even met before without any way of tracing where the money is being delivered to (most often an overseas account) and the e-mail thread is untraceable.  I just ran across one that promises to send me several thousand  in a certified check for my $500 car for parts but wants me to wire the "mover" money.  Why would anyone want to pay thousands of dollars for a junk car? 
  • Another method of deceit is sending money to a fake escrow account.  It looks real, even has a legitimate-looking website.  However, once you send the money into the escrow account, the scammer disappears with your money.  There are many legitimate escrow services, however, there are just as many phony ones out there.  What's worse, scammers often get a hold of their victims' bank account information and can drain them dry.  
  • You can't take a look at the item for sale, lease, or rent.  The item is in a location you cannot physically get to, perhaps in the middle of Brazil, France, or Ukraine; that's saying if the location is even provided.  Most scammers just provide a fake picture of the item with ambiguous details.  The services are also ambiguous, pretentious, and poorly stated/offered.  You must buy it sight unseen, transfer the money to someone you have never met, and give them all of your personal information in the process so they can steal your identity.  
  • Scammers also request you to do things outside of normal comfort level but use manipulative techniques to bait you and make you fall for their traps.  Ask yourself if you would trust this person enough to invite over for dinner and introduce to your family, then listen to what your logical self is telling you.   If there was any hesitation at all, then it is best to meet in a public place, like a bank's lobby or police station's parking lot.      
  • The scammer is very abrupt, pushy, and wants the transaction done as quickly as possible.  

Finally, the whole thing is too hooky to not be cautious, after all, you did start reading this article for a reason.  The quacking and waddling is too obvious not to notice something is wrong. The whole thing doesn't feel right and when you try to tell yourself this isn't a scam, you still have that tingling thought or gut feeling that it might be.  When in doubt, opt out of the deal immediately and take the evidence to the police.  Sometimes big scamming rings are caught this way.  And even if the police do not take immediate action, if enough people go to the police with these scams then patterns are established and criminals are then easier to catch.

Pamphlets: Complete Uses VIII

Melaleuca for Weight Loss
Diet is not a bad word.   A diet is simply a pattern of food types eaten regularly.  A panda has a diet of bamboo, a koala of eucalyptus, a tiger of meat.  Humans are naturally omnivores. Our diet consists of plants and animals (most vegetarians/vegans are surprised to find that most processed foods contain animal byproducts such as candy, pastries, desserts, and flavored drinks).  An American diet is different than that of an Indonesian diet, different than a Russian diet, still different than a Tibetan diet.  Ethno-cultural, environmental, and economical differences in food preferences are just a few examples of why diets vary drastically around the world.  Human diet, nonetheless, is still an omnivoric one. The American diet, however, is often comprised of non-nutritive, preservative laced, yet caloric dense foods. Portion sizes are tripled from what they were only 50 years ago and synthetic ingredients often are used as fillers or preservatives in mainstream foods. By consuming real foods and beverages, an individual can feel the difference within days.
First, a person’s metabolism is slowest after they first wake up.  It doesn’t matter if they wake up at 4am, 4pm, or anywhere in between, the metabolism naturally slows during sleep.  Both the hormones and the metabolism activate about 15 to 20 minutes after awakening.  It is alright to awaken slowly, and in many medicinal traditions, it is important to wake up slowly.  The height of the metabolism should be around mid-day, increasing in the summer months and waning in the winter months.  The metabolism starts to slow down again during the evening time; this is why eating large, late-night dinners can help pack on the pounds.   Metabolism also slows down with age, with a rapid decline in the early 30’s and again in the 50’s.  Purposely reducing calories can make this process worse, mucking up hormone levels and wreaking havoc on the metabolic process. 
Hormones are the most important component to fat loss.  Hormones tell the body what to do, how to do it, and when to do it.  There are over two and a half dozen hormones involved in the accepting and processing of energy.  Each hormone has a specific function and works most efficiently when the body is properly nourished and rested.  This is why it is paramount that the body receives 7 – 9 hours of sleep (or 3 – 4 uninterrupted REM cycles) per twenty-four hour period.  It is also very important to take a good multivitamin, which absorbs completely and does not oxidize during its breakdown; and a similarly dependable calcium supplement should be taken as well.  Another important supplement to always take is Omega-3 fatty acids with a minimum of 70% derived from DHA.  Omega-3 fatty acids aid in heart and brain health, lower inflammation, and stabilize metabolism.
It is very important to find time each day to both stretch and exercise.  Altogether, strength training and cardio are essential to increasing your metabolism.  Exercising could be done all at once, in intervals, or intermittently throughout the day.  Little movements add up in the long run.  Keep moving throughout the day and stretch in the evenings before bed.   Simply by doing establishing a routine, you should see dramatic results in less than a week.
Grab a buddy. Studies show that workout buddies are more inclined to stay motivated and lose weight together than those individuals who are forging ahead alone. Keeping track of each other’s’ goals and encouraging one another to keep going can be enough motivation to inspire both individuals in the toughest of times. Find a workout partner who is ready to pump you up without putting you down.
Upon rising out of bed, drink a glass of slightly cooler-than-room-temperature water. It is best to exercise right after rising out of bed. Since your stomach is empty, the body uses more fat stores as energy. Grab an Access Bar and go get ‘em tiger! Treat yourself with a ProFlex20 shake post workout. Remember to replace electrolytes throughout the day with Sustain Sport.
Before breakfast, drink a cup of coffee or warm tea to increase your metabolism. Add cinnamon or 1 scoop Attain GC Control to stabilize your blood sugar and add flavor to your coffee.  Try G’Day Melaleuca Herbal Tea throughout the day.   
  • For breakfast, have your fill of complex carbohydrates, fruit, and protein.  Simply Fit Oatmeal, 2 eggs, apple and peanut butter, would be a perfect breakfast.  But whole grain pancakes or waffles, bacon, ham, sausage, omelets, and other substitutes can be made.   Limit biscuits and other simple-carbohydrate bombs, these items prohibit your body from using its fat stores; yet worse, add to your fat stores. On the go meals can include a smoothie (see smoothies), FiberWise Bar, a Simply Fit Chewey Snack Bar, or Simply Fit Crackers with cheese and fruit.  
  • For a snack, drink a glass of Attain GC Control and consume one FiberWise bar, or add 1 scoop of FiberWise powder to Vanilla Attain GC Control. If you are still feeling a bit of the munchies, have one Unforgettables Dark Chocolate bar, eat a piece of fruit, some nuts, or an Attain Bar.


  • Lunch should follow just an hour and a half or so after snack.  Adjust your schedule to fit lunch in as eating often will keep your metabolism rate high.  Skipping lunch altogether can devastate your metabolism again.   An open-faced sandwich on whole grain bread stacked high with vegetables is a great choice.  Cobb salad with vinaigrette dressing or salsa is another option.  Fajitas, wraps, and whole grain, thin crust pizza can also fit the bill if vegetables are the main ingredient.  It is very hard to follow this regimen when eating at fast food joints because their food is about 70% carbohydrates, 20% animal parts (parts of what is left to be determined), and 10% preservatives.  But if you are stuck in a fast food joint and have to order something, be sure to get a salad or a bun-less grilled chicken sandwich with extra vegetables.  Be creative. Add Simply Fit Crackers instead of French-fries or chips, replace a soft drink with SplashH2O.
  • Make yourself an after-lunch cold Attain GC Control shake to sip throughout the afternoon.
  • Eating a snack in-between lunch and dinner is optional but it should be almost entirely fiber and protein.  Protein shake, piece of chicken, or hard-boiled eggs are some good examples. Add 1 Cup of Simply Fit Microwave popcorn or a FiberWise bar.  
  • Dinner should come early.  In fact, it should be completely eaten before dusk.  The body naturally slows down its metabolism in the evening so eating early reduces fat storage.  This meal should be the lightest meal of the day. Light spices make for a pleasant taste and can mix things up.  Meals such as homemade soup or meatloaf with a light salad on the side can be a perfect ending to the day. Drink a glass of FiberWise one half hour before eating.
You may experience an increase in your metabolism.  This is good but with it comes increased hunger.  If you find yourself in need of a snack late at night, do not succumb to junk food.  Save the craving for morning snack.  Instead, drink an Attain Shake or have a cup of hot tea and eat a hard-boiled egg.  The protein will satisfy you until morning. 
You should notice fat loss in a couple of days.  Sugar cravings will persist for at least a week, but should subside in 10-15 days.  Sweets will become too sweet after this point and you will notice that less of it is needed to satisfy your cravings.  This is one of the breaking points you will need to motivate you through your fat loss success.  One of the biggest motivators, however, will be buying a new outfit every other month.  And you should spoil yourself because you deserve it.
