Go ahead and lead her/him on. It can be a source of entertainment to keep communicating with her/him - make them send you the money 'gram' by FedEx - since it cost them to do so they will be out the FedEx charges,

I do a lot of this to scammers - want to read some funny ideas go to Goggle and look for Scammers - some great sites with stories about how to feck with them :laughing:

Any time you see the word "item".... red flag. Nobody calls a car an item. I put a Buick Wildcat on Craigslist and got many many of these overseas scams. Trouble is...people out there are gullible enough to fall for it.

I only deal with local people and in person.. money to hand transfer, a hand shake and everyone is happy.:thumbsup:

Yeah, I kind of play games with telemarketers too.... I have to be in the right frame of mind though..
Yep, I played with one for the sale of my puppy for a few weeks. Cost them like 50 bucks or so to send me the fake check. AWESOME.

I too, got a scam request for parts last night. lowlifes.

Maybe more of a lowlife than you think.
Scumbags buy certain dog breeds to get killed when training their pitbulls used in dog fights.

scam

i sent that guy this reply from another scammer that is selling a 69 camaro rs/ss convertible for $4000. let them scam each other.



I'm glad that you're interested in my car. The car is street legal and accurate. It comes with all the documents needed for registration, it has a clear title and it can be registred into your name at any time. I am willing to sell it for $4000.This buy now price does include the shipping and insurance fees. I'm located in Baytown TX and the car is here as well and so this is where the car will be shipped from. I've done some research and the best and fastest way I can ship it is using Hemisphere cargo Shipping Ltd which takes between 4 to 6 days to arrive at your door (door to door handling and shipping insurance fee included). I am affiliated with Yahoo! Finance where I have a purchase protection account for $ 10,000.00. This service allows us to complete this transaction in a manner that is quick and safe for both of us. It acts as a third party between seller and buyer to insure that both parties comply to transaction requirements and provides dispute resolution and mediation between parties. Yahoo! Finance is responsible to insure that both parties comply to transaction requirements. If this is ok with you please reply with your complete name, address and shipping address in your next email and let me know if you are interested in knowing more details about this purchase so that I can open a transaction case at Yahoo! Finance and move forward with this deal.
Thank you,
Karen Davis

I received one of those emails from a subwoofer I was selling on another corvette site a few weeks back. I never even replied to the jerk, but now I'm starting to think I should have messed with him a little...maybe next time;)

True. Atleast those guys could care less about me sending them my dog. They only wanted the money.

I was selling a set of rims and a guy sent me $4000 in fake postal money orders. I only wanted $800 bucks so he said to send him the change. I took them to the post office and they said in like 2 seconds, yeah they are fake.

He also wanted to use 'moneygram'. And he was also the middle man in the deal. Those scams are everywhere.

This is a well known internet scam that WILL burn you. My advice, while it is tempting to play with them a while for the sheer entertainment value) is devote your energies to selling your car to a REAL customer.
