    Gotta love these scammers...

    So Im having a little play lol

    I had posted an ad for my cabby for sale in some free paper/online site when I was selling it, didn't hear anything, then yesterday, I got this:

    Hello,
    > My name is Bill. I am an American business man based in United Kingdom. I will like to purchase your for sale which you listed for sale on the posted adds. Do let me know as soon a possible if it is still available and if payment with a Cashier's check or Money order is fine. Concerning the shipping, I have a reputable shipping company that will be coming over directly to your place for the pick up. I await your response. you can contact me here on my email address bill_lauren080@yahoo.com and get back to me with the asking price and also including your full name,full address and contact phone number on where the payment will be send to.
    > My phone number. +447031848880
    > Many Thanks and God Bless
    > Best Regard
    > Bill


    So me being me, replied with this:


    Hello Bill.

    Yes the car is still for sale, would you like to come to see it before sending the money to me? Where abouts are you based in the UK and why would it need shipping if you are over here?

    The price on the car is now £1100 as the MOT is nearly out. If you would like to pay the full £1250, then I can MOT her for another year.

    Please reply as soon as you can just in case someone else buys her first.

    Oh, and Im not very keen on giving you my details as there are alot of Nigerian scammers replying to cars for sale ads, then they rip people off, but of course if you came to see the car, then I can give you the details then.

    Rock on fella

    peace up etc etc

    Thanks so much for your swift reponse,i really so happy to do business with you and i promise you wont regret doing any business with me,concerning the payment as soon as the payment is been cleared in your bank account my private shipping will be at your location for the pick up. i am satisfied with all what you said,i wish to come and see the car but am so busy with for now,so bear with me,so i will like you to forwared your full details so that i can instrust my client to issue out the cashier cheque to you as soon as possible before another buyer buy the car,also here is my number incase you wanted to talk to me +447031848880

    10 points to gryffindor for the effort
    now if you can arrange a big enough postal owl I'll ensure the car is wrapped up in an invisibility cloak and ur owl can come and "pick" it up
