Default Gilbert Stradden "Stradden 11" known scammer

Here is the message that I received from this scammer. I did a little research on his name and he is known for travelers check fraud, job offer scams and a plethora of otheres that only get some poor sap to pay him money. Google search his name for yourself if you like.
Even better, let him know that you will be "sending the money as promised". I hate this sh t. It wastes our time and maybe we can all waste a bunch of his. He is not aware that I am up on his crooked dealings.

Message: Dear Sir,

We are Interested in purchasing used Engine from your company. Please kindly send us the Items lists and price quotations.
We are only willing to pay via bank to bank transfer.

Was there a reason that you were leery of him in the first place or were you just checking him out? How can they de-fraud you with a bank to bank transfer? I was going to open up an acct with 50 bucks for the wire transfer on a sale, but then the guy backed out. I wouldnt give him my regular acct #.
Check out this e-mail I received from another guy...
