I recently ran a wanted ad in the classifieds for some uncommon speedometer parts. Several days later a Mark Bagshaw responded with an offer to sell them to me if I sent him a Moneygram. I was to send the Moneygram to his sister in Chicago, as she worked in a bank and could convert the funds easily there. I was able to ask him over the phone about the part numbers on the parts, the numbers he gave me didn't match the parts he described but were the correct numbers I had given in the ad. I asked where he had acquired these parts. He replied in a heavy Indian accent he gets these direct from the manufacture! I then asked for a picture of the parts. I'm still waiting for the picture.
Jerry, I'm very happy that you are a whole bunch smarter than Mr. Bagshaw!!!
Jerry, Here's the email I got from the same guy when I put a wanted ad for a MultiFord High Compression head in the classifieds here back on Sept. 08
I am emailing with respect to your advert. Please let me know if you are still in need of the above and I'll get back to you. What's your phone # ?
North Chicago, IL 60064
Jay, I got the same exact email! Jerry
I got it also.
All he's got to do is fool one out of a thousand to make a nice living. ;o)
