Classified Ad scammers

Recommended Posts

I don't know why people have to go and ruin a good thing. I have been using classified ads from yesterdaystractors.com and recently I get all kinds of spam? I put out an ad for a JD 111 hood and I get an email the next day with the title of my ad word for word inserted into an email. Here is what the e-mail said: Good day, My name is John Todd,I have a client that is interested in purchasing your Hood for a John Deere 111 ,for the amount of $25 each.He will like to see the pictures of the Hood from different directions or a full description of the Hood ,Also he will like to know if the Hood works fine.Kindly reply to show your interest in selling the Hood to my client.The payment for the Hood will be remitted through my client's credit card.I will be awaiting your quick response. Regards, J.Todd. -- But I can't figure out what do these people gain from sending these emails. I have also been getting "no subject" emails, with no writing at all. Almost seems like its automated.

I agree. I'd lay money on it being a scam. Just ignore 'em. Might help to put something in your posted email like chris727@.msn.com (the extra period makes it harder for software to harvest usable email addresses.) Some spam will still come through though.

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time
