I do sell stuff on ebay and other online places sometimes. I usually get the scammer emails and I delete them but this one I decided to keep going. It was for my old bmw 1974 car, which already sold. Messages are in order.

First- am a New and used Auto, Parts and Accessories dealer located in Africa. I am interested in your AD .I would want to know the firm price and mode of payment.In respect of shipping i have a reputable Shipping company with offices in the U.S that takes care of my shipping. Awaiting your urgent response.

Mr paul

Hello Paul

Inrespect of payment i have a client in the
U.S who is owing me $9,600.All i need to do to
make payment easier and faster is to instruct him to procure a cashiers
check and mail it to you on the name,address and
telephone number you want on the check and you
know it takes 24hrs for a cashiers check to clear .But i
would want to know if i can trust you to send my
balance to me via WESTERN UNION MONEY TRANSFER in the NIGERIA, LAGOS.

shipping company here so that they can instruct
their nearest office to come and pick it from

Why bother with these [email protected]$les!!!

I wouldn't even bother with these [email protected]@h&les. For all you know, this guy's cousin(or this guy) could be right down the block! They could have you P.O.Box staked out waiting for you to pick-up your mail. People that do these things don't live/play my the same rules we do.

Sounds like a classic 419 scammer. Check out ebolamonkeyman.com ( I actually found this site through another post here).

tons of scamming fun!!!

waste time, maybe even try to get something else going thinking he is going to get my money.
