I second Stan Howe's note in the classified ads. Anyone unhappy with James' postings can just ignore them.
Ted, how can some of your fellow posters have any fun if they ignore James.
Funny how some people can grow old without growing up. And not in an admirable way.
Keep it cranking,
Our friend James contacted me about a 27 for sale in a local estate sale. He didn't want to hear "cash or certified (& verified) check". Mind you he was not the only one, I answered each with the same payment arrangements. They all want a deal, offer to pay 50% more and payment thru Western Union. Any idea how the WU scam works?
I'm fairley new on here but the guy dosen't seem to have any ethics when dealing via this form; I somewhat leave my guard down when I'm on here. I have interacted with some really great greet guys,[some that come to mind Mike Bender, Dave Huson Dave with Chaffins ,Lee Crenshaw ,Bill? from Ft Meyers ,Russ Potter, there are outers -can't think of there names right now]
It seems this guy [james] is out to take advantage of that mindset ,he doesn't seem to be very ethical [ when you use the death of your mother to raise money for a pipe dream is crossing the line in my estimation].In my mind he's worse than the, out of the country spammers that appears in the classifieds !! Rich J.
I don't know how the Western Union Scam would work if the buyer was paying YOU with Western Union. Usually it's the other way around.
Seller advertises item for sale. You want item. Seller says they want WU for payment. So you go to the WU office and get a money transfer, which afterwards you contact the seller with the MTCN (Money Transfer Control Number). Then you mail your payment to them.
They then go to ANY WU office in the world and claim the money with that MTCN. You have no idea who the seller was or where they were actually from. Could have been from Timbuktu for all you know. WU does not ask for ID verification to receive the money, all they need is the MTCN.
WU even has a sign in the office and on their website, that you should not use their services to pay for anything that you buy online. You should only send money through them to people you know: family, friends, cousins, etc. NOT STRANGERS you've never seen much less ever met.
And if you ever lose money through WU, just chalk it up: it's gone, and you'll never see it again. Period.
With all this complaining and speculation, I am surprised that nobody has ever called him, discussed his terms, or just simply swapped lies. No one has come forward to say they were cheated, unhappy, or just plain ripped off. He is a used car peddler, who happens to find success in his horse trading or weird middle-man shenanigans via less than truthful hook-lines. Distasteful? Maybe, but where is the evidence that he is a scam artist?
Hi guys I have been looking over the forum every day for the last 2 years. I still donít have a Model T yet but I am looking. A while back I found what looked like an ok '26 touring but upon getting better pictures it looked like it was just painted with a rattle can right over all the rust. Here is what the seller replied back with. Getting pictures of it from him was like pulling teeth. He had all kinds of excuses why he could not get me any new pictures. I thought asking for pictures of a car a few states away was ok when trying to buy one.....
It is not a fast paint job but it could be repainted and smooth out.
It is not a bad paint job but to make it a $14,000.00 Ford you could
repaint it.I am not charging that much where you can do some and
make it wroth more.I live in a area where thing rust. It is not a bad
Ford Model T. If I redo the Ford Model T and do all the work that it
needs I will be charging a hell lot more for it.
Thank lot I take it you do not want it.Please reply to my email.You made
me do a lot of work for nothing. At lease it has a Title.
Many of his emails were on key with this. So glad I didnít get any farther into buying anything from this guy!
You know,after reading that broken english,worse than mine by a long shot,Bissel needs to stick to makeing vacuam cleaners.
I googled the phone number and copied and pasted this here.

Justin, Mr. Bissell's reply back to you sure looks like Nigerian scammer babel speak!!!
Up til now I was giving the guy a break. Figured he was just trying to make buck, however unsophisticated, by brokering cars. Now I am not so sure.
Yeah Richard, me too. His mother did die on July 19th, you can google her obituary.
"Unsophisticated" might be an understatement. But I don't have time to worry about it.
A more encompassing belief from me is that for all the forum and classified postings people should use their real names, especially if they are going to bad mouth somebody. Anybody. Everybody.
I'll stand up for what I say and do and I think everybody else should or keep their mouth shut.
Stan, I agree!
I don't fault or make fun of people because of their writing skills.
I had a '25 Fordor for sale and Mr. Bissell contacted me about it.
He wanted to buy it on time and I would have gladly sold it to him, in fact WAS ready to pull the trigger, but a cash buyer stepped up and that was that.
He seems like a nice guy.
I suspect that Mr. Bissell is very literate, well educated, and a smooth operator. I further suspect that his poor grammar and broken English is faked and just a clever technique to draw folks in and get their attention. I've seen folks that are dumb like a fox, and generally shy away from trading with them. Just my 2 cents worth...
Michael Jordan put a roof on my house, but he didn't wear Nike shoes.
My neighbor would not put her husband's obit in the paper, due to numerous scams in this area by people claiming to be a relative listed in the obit.
There were also numerous home broken into at the time of the member's funeral, as it was a sure thing that no one would be there.
New email address, and now goes by Jim. Better grammar this time but still seems fishy to me.....

I guess the "Jim" explains why I did not see the name James Bissell in recent classified adds.
