    Grrr! Someone's trying to steal my treasure!!!

    So I posted an add for the ring(s) I found at the park. It's a small park so I just said the address of the street. I didn't write that I metal detect or that I found two rings... the last thing I want is someone detecting my park!!! I didn't describe them either. Someone replied; (I'll name him/her pirate)

    Pirate: Can u send a picture of the ring? I lost a size 10 gold ring.

    Me: Sorry that's not the ring I found. Hope you find it soon!😊

    Pirate: How do u know it's not the ring? Is it gold or silver?

    Me: Like I said, it's not your ring. It's not gold. Believe me I wouldn't have posted this add if I wasn't going to return it if I could. Hope you find your ring! Have a good day.


    I bet Pirate didn't even lose a ring!!! He/she is a phony-balony. If Pirate responds again without a correct description I will NOT answer.
    Always check rabbit holes when metal detecting... you never know, there might be karats down there.

    Oh yea, they are phishing for something. I love the fact they wanted to see the ring. Best thing to do is send some random pic of a ring and see if they bite.


    Then of course make up some place for them to meet you and sit back and wait for the reply of why you didn't show up.

    With a name like Pirate...
    I wonder if that scam worked on anyone.
    When detectors are outlawed, only outlaws will have detectors

    Good job handling the fake claim of ownership. I would not have been so gracious.

    Always check rabbit holes when metal detecting... you never know, there might be karats down there.

    Good response. It would be hard enough to give away my ring to the real owner!

    Good advice is if you do not want to sell or keep it, turn it in to the police.

    Mvgirl the one problem is if you respond to them with a email you just opened yourself up to a lot of junk email because they sell it.
    What I do is tell them to message me (through ad site) with their phone number and I will call (on do not show phone ID number) them to answer any questions.
