“Dear PoPville,

Below is the ad and he had a follow up e-mail. I guess the learning point here is generally if it is too good to be true, its too good to be true. At one point he had even linked the person’s facebook page for me. What lead me to research was the fact that he was using an email address, I guess a pretty obvious give away.

Any way that you can spread the word to get people to avoid this would be appreciated.

I e-mailed the real Barak Sky. He has a g-mail and this guy is using an aol account (who uses AOL anymore).”
