Hi,
I am a used cars dealer from Africa with clients all over Africa. I have offices in most African Cities. I have a client who's interested in your product. Although I'm ok with your price and Inrespect of payment i have a client in U.S.A who is owing me $=5,500. All i need to do to make payment easier andfaster is to instruct him to raise a cashier's check and mail to you on the address and name you want on the check and you know that you can cash it easily. But i would want to know if i can trust you to send my balance to me via Western union money transfer money transfer to enable me prepay the shipping company here so that they can instruct their office closer to you to come and pick the item from your location.
Please mail me asap to enable me arrange payment .
Awaiting your urgent response.
Thank you
Richard Winston

Dear Richard Winston,
I have a client who likes to see inanimate objects rectaly inserted. All you need to do to make this happen is take that check and shove it up your ass!:toothless
Sincerely,
Not an idiot!

Don't take the bait, yes it's a scam and a few people have been burnt by it already, they send you a fake, certified cheque, you get a record from it because it is suppose to be a stolen cheque, and they get their product...... :twak :twak :twak :twak :twak

IIRC, pony-boy went thru something like this... well, I know someone in WA state has. They received the check, called his bank about i, the bank said it was, indeed, a phony, and he called FBI about it. That's what I would do about it, and should have done about the ebay scam I received awhile ago - forward your email to the FBI

I had the same type of thing happen to me back when it was a new scam, i got the check for like 4500 and they bank looked at the "certified check" and said it was a good check. I called my local AG and they said its a scam dont send the extra back. SO i waited for 3 weeks to send the extra back and sure as shit the check came back countierfit.
