Watch out for a possible "Freecycle" scamPosted Friday, June 13, 2008, at 11:14 AM
Freecycle is a networking site that allows members to post things they want to give away or things for which they are looking. It is free and has good intentions behind people recycling rather than disposing in the landfills.
However, one of the members noticed that the listing came up in three different counties and looks remarkably the same except for the name and e-mail address. Regrettably, it was after they gave their name,address and where they work. As you might guess, they are scared that the information will be used against them.
It's my first post here so, I do apologize in advance lol. I have just recently obtained a new Xbox 360 for my kids from the internet and I have noticed they no longer play with their old Wii, which me and my partner choose for them for xmas a couple of years back.
The original box was put in the trash, but we still have all the cables and stuff to go with it. It works like a treat so it is a great shame for it to end up on a landfill. I'm a full time cab driver so to be even more environmentally friendly.
I am willing to deliver instead saving you fuel and also making it possible for people unable to drive or otherwise busy."
It sounded too good to be true, since Wii is not that old and still in high demand. BEWARE!
