I put a car up for sale a few weeks ago, got an e:mail saying he was in Ireland and would be over at weekend to view, where do I live? (In Scotland), next he can't come, but will have car shipped, will send me cheque to cover purchase and shipping which I have to send via, you've guessed it, Western Union to the shipping company. Despite winding him up, by increasing the price tenfold, he's still interested, then I told him I was on to him, still coming after me. Says cheque is in the post, delay due to his mother being in hospital with breast cancer, boo-hoo. Any other experiences of this?

I would stop contacting him with your real mail address, as the more experienced baiters would say

It's a check overpayment scam. He sends a fake check for more than the amount, you cash it, send back the difference over WU, then get raped in prison when the bank reports you for cashing a fraudulent check. The money appears in your account because by law a bank cannot refuse a check, but it is called "flash money" because it is a book-keeping illusion that lasts until the bank tries to verify it.

Since this guy already has your RL information, don't try to bait him. Instead, post up his emails with headers over at so future victims can try to find him.

Also, please post the "shipping company"'s website. Many of these scammers use fake sites, and we have a team of elite sitekillers able to take them down and thus screw up the lad's scam.

I currently have my project supra up for sale and the most
interest I've had was scam artists.
So I thought I would bait them on
with a red MR2 for $3000 (car dont actually exist)
I had a few short lived. This was the last one.

Hello Cud
Is the mr2 still for sale? My offer is $3150.
I am interested in purchasing this car so if anyone ask
tell them it is sold ok

reguards han

Hi hanna

the car is in great working order. Had some interest.
Did you want to come have a look and test drive
before you commit to buying it?

Hi hanna
the car must go soon as it was involved in a hit and run
thus it has no numberplates. I hope this wont put you
off as a buyer as it is in very good clean condition.
A car like this would really turn heads out at sea so if your
after a impression, this is the right choice.

As for payment i except paypal or bank cheque,
which ever you prefer for a long distance sale method.
Though I do have some requests for confirmation so I
feel secure in dealing with out of the country sales.
I do hope this will not be a issue.

Thankyou again for your interest and I hope to hear from you soon

Just keep writing like that last one was never sent. Half the time they are too stupid to realise you stuffed up. And worst case you might be able to use it for a dolla chop. Cant really make mistakes with these bozos

Be assure that we do far more better business over here than deviants in your country,be advised.- Mr Anderson
