Buyer Tried Scamming Man For A $950 Gaming PC And Then Asked For $400 Help

  Published on 

My daughter is sick, so can I get a special price for this Xbox? My sister is dying from cancer, so it would be extremely helpful if you can give me your PS4 as well as $300 to help me with her hospital bills. No, I can’t pay you.

Well, yeah, it sounds like you need extra money, but gaming equipment is the last thing in the whole world you need. Plus, these stupid excuses really raise a lot of red flags. You probably don’t even have a sister, like the scammer Reddit user ShankABee met when he was trying to sell his gaming PC.

Here’s a full record of conversation between ShankABee and Dave the Scammer.

ShankABee

Dave explained that he was suspicious of the man right off the bat. The man was asking for pictures that were already on the ads. He introduced himself as Dave Walk and reasoned he wanted to show the pictures to his wife.

ShankABee

He couldn’t do online payment because he got hacked. That’s a second red flag raised, so naturally, our seller offered to pay in cash. Cold hard cash can’t be denied no matter how suspicious you are, let’s see how he replied.

ShankABee

Eventually, our seller was 98% sure this is a scammer. But he wanted to see how far it’ll go. Is she single?

ShankABee

Apparently, ‘Dave’ was ready to sell his sick daughter in exchange for a gaming PC.

ShankABee

BUT THAT WASN’T ALL.

ShankABee

Yeah, he just asked for $400 on top of getting the PC for free. Because that’s how a dad with a sick daughter would act properly. Obviously, user ShankABee aka ‘Xander’ was ready to meet his future wife.

ShankABee

He still wants the cash, Xander.

ShankABee

He couldn’t find anything on the picture he sent, so it seemed like the man tried taking advantage of whoever that was on the sickbed.

People found this story pretty entertaining.
