Hello Chris,
Thanks alot for your response I am glad to know that
the CAR is still available for sale . The price is
okay by me as I am pleased to inform you that I will
buy the item from you do let me know if this is
acceptable by you so that I can make payment at once
which will be by a certified Bank Cheque,i will be sending you
overdraft of payment the balance will be for transport
of the CAR to me .To enable me do so I will require
your

Name full :-

Address full :-

State:-

Postal Code:-

Country:-

Telephone Number:-

last price...

So that the payment can be made to you with the cheque
immediately you receive the cheque, you shall take it
to your bank and let the money be on your account.
Upon clearance of the cheque into your account, I will
now instruct my shipping company to come over to your
location and have the CAR transport to me.So and i
will give you 200$ for you to keep the CAR for
me.Kindly get back to me right now with the necessary information and pls i want you to
consider the item sold right now and if any other interested buyer contact you , You should be telling them that it has been sold to me ...Thanks so much for your understanding and i hope deal with you in future.

Do normal people talk like that? Doesn't sound like a motorhead to me.

And, why's he telling u what u should do?

I agree, I think it's a DUCK!

I had a similar experience when I was selling my racecar on here a few years back, I didn't reply.
However a friend had the same dealings with someone on here and sent the info they wanted, the check arrived and it was bogus, total waste of time. They are overseas scammers, which is why their english sucks so bad.
Cant click the delete button fast enough.
