It must be possible to just turn these people in somehow?
Send them a huge box, and when they open it, you jump out. Or something.
I hate scammers, and my mailbox is full of it. Trying to get my bank and Paypal passwords, etc.

Sorry man that was me, I thought I could get in on the action and scam your sweet bike!

Seriously though what are these people thinking? It must work though as scammers dont do it if it does not pay off.

I think its "txt spk" that all the lovely chavs use over here :) I think there is an on-line "translator" if you are really bored!

I think it along the same lines as the nigerian 419 scammers, by making grammar / spelling mistakes it makes you feel smarter than them and thus dropping your guard and more likely to think that they want to put $45,000,000 into your account!

It's the classic Nigerian scheme...

I've 'sold' a number of things to these morons over the years....whenever I advertise something I get these emails, and it's pretty fun to f*** with these people by going along with them and letting them send you the really badly forged 'cashier's check'.

I then tell them I've cashed the check, kept the $, and I'm not sending them the item or the remainder of the $, as they always send you a check for more than the purchase price with the agreement you send them the rest.

Meanwhile I've sold the item to a legit buyer.

I've received death threats as well as pleas to go in with them and cash their bogus checks in the US and send them a %. Pretty funny.

I just can't believe people have actually fallen for this.

I've got 6 or 7 souvenir 'cashier's checks' at home...RC

Hi Tunde,

What I mean to say is that I am sure you work hard for your money. I think this will be a profitable relationship, when I take your money and send you my products we will surely both profit!
You gave me two cards, which one am I supposed to charge or do I split it?
I will also need the three digit security code on the back of the card.

Rich regards,
Barry McCockinya

Very funny. But what's with these people in Nigeria? Just one small group of people that have found an internet café and gotten original? Or is this the new mayor industry there?
