I’ve been selling panties long enough to be able to tell when a guy is trying to scam me. But every now and then, I still slip up. (The full chat exchange of today’s near-scam is at the bottom of this blog post.)
A guy named Mark contacted me today to buy some lace panties — plus some web-cam sessions — and managed to slip past my guard. He wasted about 30 minutes of my time by promising me a $200 sale.
All of the classic signs were there that he was scamming me for my time and pictures. Guys who are serious about buying usually don’t aggressively try to sexualize the conversation.
Also, in Mark’s original email request, he asked me, “how have you not been intriqued (sic) by an experience with a male dog.. they have great cocks.” That was another obvious sign. But when I told him that I’m not interested in having sex with animals, he moved onto less disgusting topics.
Still, Mark insisted on asking sexual questions as he set up his order. He also insisted on getting a picture of me in his panties before he placed his order.
At one point, Mark also offers to give me $1,000 up front, which is another telltale scammer sign that I stupidly allowed myself to overlook. Serious buyers don’t wave $1,000 in your face on their first-ever order.
One clever trick Mark used to keep me online was that he claimed to have already made a payment. When I checked my processing account, it was clear that no payment had been made, but I wanted to give him the benefit of the doubt in case there had been some kind of system delay.
Notice how Mark tries to drag out the time by claiming that he’s emailed me a “screen shot” of his order — and then asks me to answer more sexual questions as we wait for his email to arrive.
At the end of our chat exchange, Mark realizes that I’m onto his game, and so he disappears.
Interestingly, he actually blocks me from gmail chat. I know this because when I sent him my final chat message, I got a system reply that “Mark is offline. Messages you send will be delivered when he comes online.”
This is the message you get when someone has blocked you in gmail chat. If they simply sign off or lose their connection, you don’t get this message. (I tested it.)
So Mark chatted with me, probably jerked off, and then blocked me. (A more polite scammer would have at least sent me a photo of himself jerking his cock, but Mark didn’t even have the curtesy to do that lol!)
Anyway, the only thing Mark got from me was my time and the photo. But it’s still frustrating to have someone waste 30 minutes of your day.
On the bright side, it was a lesson well learned for me.
I’ve decided not to list Mark’s actual email address or his IP because I don’t have anything to gain from embarrassing him and I’m not a vindictive person.
However, for any panty sellers, if you want Mark’s email to put him on your “blocked” list, just let me know.
