It doesn't have to be a scam. It could just be stolen.

Most all of the scam ads that pop up around here almost always have a Gmail address for you to contact the seller.

Thieves would ask a higher price, a low price and they wouldn't get paid for their work/risk. A scammers work is just in posting a picture from his/her home in Nigeria/China/Russia and collecting the funds of people who think they can get something for nothing. Personally I'm not sure it should be illegal to scam people, if they are unable to hold onto their money due to being baited by greed or opportunity, then maybe they aren't wise enough to have any money. If you think about it it isn't illegal to scam people, you just have to be at the top, the only scammers that are committing a crime are the low level scammers, the banks, big business, and government have been scamming us for decades, all legally.

Scamming is a slang word. The law calls these people "con-artists". Do you really think what they do is okay? What if they do it to old ladies? What if they do it to mentally challenged people? Do you think those folks deserve it? Just asking, no heat!
