This doesn't sound really scam-like to me... Lads won't usually send you $800, unless it's a fake cheque of course.

Sucks that your friend is so abnormally subdued, but I don't think this sounds like a scam. It does sound rather fishy though...

EDIT: Welcome to the forums btw.

I think he applied for some porn modeling, had his flight payed and some $ in advance, but when he got there discovered it was gay/S&M/B&D/animal porn. So now he's all depressed because he's got to do the filming since he already got the money...
Who knows, maybe he'll even like it.

But here's an advice. Call the cops if you're worried.

I received a scam from craigslist that sounds suspect or possibly related after reading your post. http://forum.419eater.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=1448199#1448199

Good luck sir!

I agree with Wright B Hindyou OP does sound a bit ladish. Punctuation is always lacking with lads.

Hopefully it was just goat porn and not a 'snuff' movie.
