Scammer

Hi all! As you can tell from my signature I am trying to sell my 2001 Intrepid. I was just contacted by a "potential buyer" who is trying to scam me! I am not sure if I should play along and waste his time for a while or just send him a large picture of my hairy ass! Any ideas?? Below is the email I recieved.

------------------

Thanks for the mail.

I am so glad to read from you and i really appreciate your quick
response, I will like to bring to your notice a quick reminder on the
method of payment and shipping.

Nevertheless, this business requires honesty and transparency hope i
will be able to trust you with my money. However, my freight forwarder
who'll be coming to your location to pick the (2001 Dodge Intrepid SE ) up
,has sent me an email,that they are ready for the pickup anytme.I have
decided to compensate you with $50,for your effort and i want you to also
keep other
buyers away from the item or its will be fine if you can delete the item
from the site and consider it sold to me.

A money order of $10,000 inclusive of the pick up fee will be sent to you
via mail , you're expected to deduct selling price of the ( 2001 Dodge
Intrepid SE ) which is ($5,950) with the compensation of $50 making $6,000
and send the pickup fee to the freight forwarder who'll be coming to your
location to pick it up. If this is OK, get back to me, with details:

1.Name:As it should be written on the check.
2Corrent address: 3.Cell phone Number and Home Phone Number:

So that the payment can be done soon. Your prompt response will be highly
appreciated.

I am a very busy man,i want to buy the Dodge for my father inlaw.This
reputable shippers company will take good care of everything for me.They
will come for the pickup as soon as you have cash the check.After cashing
the money order you will deduct your money for the Dodge and send the rest
funds to the shippers company via western union money transfer or money gram
trasfer that will come for the pickup at your location

Thanks and God bless you,

Regards.....

Absolutely a scam. I had the same thing happen to me. I was selling my old xbox for like $100 and some guy offers me $500 for it, and expected me to return him the rest of the money. My dad told me about this... they send a bad check, so the check never clears because its not good, and you end up paying out of pocket to them. I'm not sure what hes planning with the freight carrier... unless he knows them personally or its not even a real service but some guy with a truck. Either way I would make it a rule to always stay away from a deal where there is more than 1 transaction required. Make sure you pay and they ship or they pay and you ship and no other money transfer is made. Also if anyone asks you to send them money outside of the original transaction itself, they can be reported to ebay. I did this once when a seller demanded I pay an extra shipping fee, AFTER i already payed shipping through his USPS calculator. Also, its usually against the rules to ask someone to cancel an auction for their benefit. Anyways... I'd questions this guys motives. I'd also just drop communication immediately with him and report him to eBay or paypal or whoever you are using.

Total scam. I would at least try to write the english language correctly if I was this guy. This happens quite often on ebay, a brand new user will buy your item and send you an email like this. If you look at his feedback, even though he has none, it will show hes from India or somewhere like that. I had some guy tell me "has girlfriend in united state an she will be glad to get item, when you gladly ship item with money I provide." When I asked him what state, or what his shipping address was, he wouldnt tell me, yet he wanted all my info.

i cant see the response.

I would email the guy and tell him the trep has sold for 20k and if he still wants it he can hand deliver ur cash LOL before the new owner arrives.

I found this shit on ebay. Looking for a jet ski, i got the same email (BS about 5000$ for a jet from France, dying father LALA... then i asked how many hrs... got the same email again LOL.

Stop now if u dont want to waste ur time, its just pointless. Enjoy the rt charger.

This is a well-known scam. It's been tried countless times on ebay and elsewhere and has succeeded in separating people from their money too often.

Good response! I strung a guy along on one of these "deals" for a laptop I was selling. Had him so pissed by the end of the deal he was writing me nasty emails telling me what a "unhonest" (his word) ass I was. Drug it out almost a month and the dipshit sent me 3 checks. I can't believe people still fall for this scam.
