HERE IS WHAT I REC'D TODAY. THIS IS THE TITLE FROM AND TO;
It says I have an International buyer who wants to buy the car in your advert, first we must descuss the price. Shipping will be arranged'.
My answer to him was mine is for sale for $5 million not a dime more of less. His email was signed WAYNE. Just hope I get a reply, as I know it is a scam but interesting to say the least.
Thank everyone, as these are great sites to read all the info.
s.b INTERNATIONAL BUYER
ho!ho!ho! tis the season for scamers
I always tell the Nigerian Oil Ministry guys that I can't accept their offer because I've taken advantage of similar deals so often that now I have too much money, so if they'll send me their bank routing numbers and their account numbers I'll deposit $35,000,000 in their accounts. So far I haven't had any replies.
A genius professor at Univ of Calif Irvine actually fell for one of these schemes several years ago, and lost a bundle.
I got one also, and I have don't even have anything for sale.
I hope all this crap going on doesn't make it impossible for us real international T guys to buy stuff from USA..
Well, usually it's easy to tell whether the "buyer" knows anything at all about the part or car for sale - one test question will tell.
Roger it is the first thing that goes through our minds. When "a prominent politician in Austria" contacted me for an engine I wondered. Turned out he was for real. I get 100 emails a month from "England", "the UK", offering to "buy your item". 90% come to the email address I use exclusively on this sites classified page. The majority of the remainder seem to be from Craigslist. This Swamp Yankee is under the impression that the Nigerians have all moved to London and joined the US military.
The really entertaining ones are from purported British lawyers or bankers whose English is obviously not their first language.
I have a lot of "next of kin" in Nigeria
I had a bunch of "next of kin" in Nigeria but it seems they are getting killed off in accidents.
The good side is I get all their money by just paying a few small fees.
I advertised that I was looking for a part in the classifieds. I had several replies from the UK wanting to sell me the part but just as many wanting to buy the part I was looking for. I guess they can't read any better than they write.
