    This is very useful information. I have always been aware of the "Dating Profile" scammers but it seems there are even bigger and badder ones out there. Thanks for the awareness.

    Don't people click report on those scams so that they go away? Especially those dating profile ones? I see them all the time so I'm guessing people aren't clicking "report" on those.

    I have been reporting for as long as I have known about them. It seems they don't go away. At least not very quick.

    Just heard this back from amazon
    In response to the HIT that was approved and paid, there isn't a way to return the funds to the Requester. The earnings will be deposited into your Payments accounts and this will not reflect poorly on your account standing. In light of how the earnings are transferred, there is no risk of a charge back for you.

    So i just made $40 off a scammer. Nice!

    It's nice when you can find a stoopid scammer.

    Amazon will get the "charge back" if there is one - So thats good.

    The scammer may be doing that for a few people to get a quick good rating then let loose big time really scamming people. Otherwise take money from some - To pay others off - then stop.
