Hi all,

Just in, spent a while scouring the stickies and will keep churning through the threads. Had no idea about baiting. Alot to learn.

The first question I have is about the possible scam that someone is trying to pull on me.

Background info: I live in France. Just sold my house, waiting for the funds to go into my bank (today sometime I think) and I need a new car. A cheap car.

So, on 18th Nov I found a cheap Peugeot 106 (€1000). Sent an email using the website mail (http://www.leboncoin.fr/) expressing my interest. It's the only email I don't have.

The easiest way for me to continue with this is to publish the email string since then. Thats going to mean a long post so I'll ask before I do it.

Is it okay to post this email string? Is there an accepted way of posting correspondence strings?

Also, I've been trying to speak in person with the vendor since I sent the original email. However, the only person I spoke with in person so far was a guy in Nigeria.

I used dial back not knowing he was in Nigeria but do have his number:

00 2 29 98 33 92 46

Cheers,

Az

Hello my car is available with all papers in rules for sale and I sell it to 1000 euros it is in very good condition and runs perfectly fine. tires and brakes are new. the technical control is blank (OK), the service book is up to date and the belt was redone recently. all invoices are available. I put it up for sale because I have to join my husband who works for the Embassy of France abroad in very few days. I therefore came to Toulouse in the 31 to prepare my personal papers for my trip because my family lives there and the car is with me. then if you are to take my brother's garage and also carries out the deliveries in France. It will take you the car with all papers at home whenever you want.
I will take in charge for his travel expenses. Please contact me if you want to buy my car.
cordially Sylvie P.

I have taken good note of your mail.
Because the delivery is done without obligation to purchase it was tell my brother going at your home with the car and after trying and the paperwork audit if the car meets your expectations you hand him the postal receipts in exchange for papers and car keys where you will notice an abnormality that prevents you to take the car any time you could let him know and he returned with the car and you will have no charge to result. Please confirm your contact information if you are really interested: name...
PRÉNOM .......................

Dear Ms. Apple, I asked you to call me several times now and you do not.

Contact by email is not good enough.

If you want to sell me the car you will contact me by phone in person if not that I will not be dealing with you.

I commend you for your patience regarding the money for the purchase but I am suspicious of the circumstances of this sale and am not prepared to go further until we have already talked about.

Thank you.

Hello to you.
Thank you for your reply.
But we try to call you yesterday you do not answer your phone.
You can tell the delivery suite, because I just read the mail of confirmation of my brother who informed me that the deed of sale that I pre-set before my departure that it already filled it according to your delivery details that you sent me and I passed him and that he still has what you sign at the delivery to take possession of your car its two key and these documents in order.
Therefore Please give me a confirmation for the delivery, so I confirm a my brother.

Cordially Sylvie POMMIER

Mr. and Mrs. Pommier, listen to me well.

At no time do I book your car. I expressed an interest in buying it. At no time did I promise to buy it. In the emails, I said that I did not want to commit to buy before I saw it. I have also asked you to provide me with registration (so that I can check the source of the vehicle). You have also failed to do.

I was buy and sell cars for twenty years and I have never encountered this kind of situation. I am happy to buy the vehicle to you, but I wait for the process to be simple and transparent.

I suggest that, when I have the money that we meet and proceed to the sale outside the Lavelanet Gendarmerie.

I talked with my lawyer this afternoon and promised that it would transfer to my Bank tomorrow. I don't know exactly when it will be available.


Sincerely, Mr. xxxxxxxx

Waiting for you read kindly Mr. and Mrs. POMMIER

Dear Sir and Madam Apple, let me speak frankly. Don't waste no more time on this issue.

In any of the emails I have enter into a contract to purchase your vehicle.

In fact, I said explicitly that I would not buy until I saw it.

I also asked several times for a phone number that was never to come.

I also asked several times to speak with Ms. Pommiers. So far, the only person I spoke with in person is a man in Nigeria.

In addition, I have clearly said in my last post that I am happy to buy your vehicle on condition that the operation is concluded at the Gendarmerie of Lavelanet and the documentation is in order and that the vehicle is as described.

Since you have decided is not to sell it to me. I don't have a problem with that, but it certainly means that I am not responsible for any financial penalties.

This morning, I have printed emails between us and went to the Gendarmerie in Lavelanet. After reading the e-mails between you and me, they decided that I am not responsible for all the costs. He also told me to report the case to the piece of good corner as a "fraudulent advertising.

Threats continuing to impose financial sanctions on me for breach of contract also amounted to attempted extortion.

Unless you intend to sell me the vehicle (subject to conditions that I mentioned above) Please stop contacting me.

MR. xxxxxxxxxxxx

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

Since then two attempts to call me with a masked ID on the phone but no emails.


I really would be grateful for help/advice/opinions.


Ta.

It seems as though they have your real information. The best thing you can do at this point is to forget any communication with them.

I did notice a change in "her" surname toward the end. There is nothing even close to being proper about that deal and they can do nothing to you, financially or otherwise, for shutting this down.

Thanks NV for your response.

They have my landline number, mobile number and area postal/zip code.

Feel pretty dumb for walking into this.

Do I have any reason to be worried?

Ta again for the response.

Please do not feel dumb because a professional scammer tried to bilk you out of your hard earned money. This is what these people do for a 'Living'.

Luckily no real harm was done here. As far as being worried, don't be. Simply drop all contact with them and they will move on to someone else.
