I got this e-mail from a guy who wants to buy my car. I could only cut and paste it but how dodgy does this look. Anyone else come accross this?? It looks like a pre written form with just the car details filled in when used hence different font for the car details.

PS this is no way an effort by me to try and sell my car, as I have a buyer already and no his name is not Steve Brown :)
Happy New Year to you all by the way.

HELLO,

I WAS SEARCHING FOR A CAR TO BUY FOR MYSELF AS I HAVE SOLD THE ONE I WAS USING BEFORE BECAUSEI NEED A BETTER CAR TO USE SINCE I HAVE BEEN TRANSFERED FROM MY OFFICE TO SINGAPORE.

OUT OF ALL MY SEARCH I THINK YOUR CAR WILL BE SUITABLE FOR ME AND ALSO THEY PRICE IS VERY OKAY WITH ME.

I MEAN THE
1997 PORSCHE 911 S 2dr Carrera Coupe FOR £29,000

THIS IS THE TERMS THAT I THINK WILL BE OKAY FOR PAYMENT ....

1)I WILL PAY YOU 10% OF THE TOTAL AMOUNT OF THE CAR AND ALSO EXCESS FOR MY SHIPPERS MOVEMENT TO UK THROUGH MY ASSOCIATE IN UK.

2) WHEN MY SHIPPER HAS VIEWED THE CAR AND HAS CONFIRMED TO ME THAT ITS OKAY THEN I WILL INSTRUCT MY BANK MANAGER TO TRANSFER THE REMAININGBALANCE TO YOUR BANK ACCOUNT AND WHEN IT GET TO YOU ACCOUNT ...THEN THE CAR WILL BE RELEASED TO MY SHIPPER FOR SHIPMENT.

THE 10% UPFRONT IS FOR THE SECUREMENT OF THE CAR BECAUSE OF OTHER INTERESTED BUYERS.

I 'M SURE YOU UNDERSTAND WHY MY TERMS OF PAYMENT IS LIKE THIS BECAUSE I CANNOT JUST PAY YOU THE TOTAL AMOUNT OF THE CAR WITHOUT VIEWING THE CAR.

IF ITS OK WITH YOU WITH MY CONDITION THEN I WILL WANT YOU TO GET BACK TO ME WITH FULL NAME AND ADDRESS SO THAT I CAN ASK MY ASSOCIATE TO SEND YOU A BANKDRAFT FOR THE UPFRONT PAYMENT.

YOU CAN CONTACT ME ON 07023051287 OR REPLY MY EMAIL

REGARDS,

STEVE BROWN

I am still crying at one of the e-mails on there cheers LOJO.

Just tried to send him an e-mail as per Warren's suggestion to string him along and guess what.....The account has been deactivated. The scam could be the phone number....call it and get charged a fortune.

I did hear an amusing story regarding these scams

u email him and ask what religon he is,

then you say that you can only sell things to members of your church,

then you email him asking for a £50 to join your church, I>E the local pub the red jackets, red lion, and then you can complete the transaction

some nigerian send a bank draft for £50 payable to the ''Ring of bells''

I saw that article as well mark,

The truth is far funnier, they mde the guy send a photo of himself barechested with a tatoo on his chest to verify that he had indeed joined the church :twisted:

Daz.

You could always try ringing the number from a phone box Charlie, then the most it could cost is £1.

Loved that web site Lojo - spent a whole lunchtime reading the one about Father Will U Tuchme. Classic and what a top man taking on the scammers at their own game.

No, she'll be from Ghana, 6'5" tall and an absolute stunner - hey, could that be Sundeeps babe? BTW, where is the great porn star?

Charlie, maybe you could sell these people some English lessons and make enough for a 997 GT3
