    Im selling my car so i listed it on craigslist. A day later someone emailed me asking about it. I replied with all the info about the car i had. In the next message the person said they will pay me 3400 for the car (i had it listed 3400 obo) and they will send a check for 6500 which i should cash, then take 3400 out for myself and give the remaining part to the delivery person who will come pick it up. They said its a 'pre-paid' shipping service so i have to deal with paying them with the buyer's money. I told the person im not taking any personal check at all, so they can agree to send me a u.s. postal service money order and i want their name and address in case there are "problems" with the transaction. They never sent me any info about themselves, but hastily responded with "ok so money order send me your info" and that was all.
    The original plan (with the check) is an obvious scam with a bad check that will bounce at their bank after i pay the "delivery guy" and give them my car, so i would be out a car and $3100. Right now im just trying to take up as much time as possible and hopefully piss them off until i get their info which i will do dome investigating on.
    I dont know how they plan on scamming me with an official money order (if they are trying to scam me) but im not relaxing too much yet.
    People suck, but i kind of find this whole thing amusing.
    Very funny....not.

    A guy tried to scam me though ebay the other day. He sent me a message saying that he never got his item and that he wanted a refund. Luckily I get delivery confirmation service on everything I sell, and when I mentioned that it had been delivered to his address the day before he just sent me a long list of cusswords.

    theres really no need to censor cock/fuck.
    I have their email, im thinking about mass spamming them, but that requires work and i am pretty lazy.
    I told them i will give them my info only if they send me their info first. I never heard from them again.

    So, uh, still trying to sell the car if anyone wants in on it....
    Very funny....not.

    Lol I got the funniest blatantly obvious scam email the other day:

    My Dear Friend

    How are you together with your family i hope that all is well if so glory be to God amen.
    It's been long I heard from you. Well, I just want to use this medium to thank you very much for your earlier assistance to help me in receiving the funds, without any positive outcome. I am obliged to inform you that I have succeeded in receiving the funds with the help of a new partner from Paraguay.

    Everything was perfectly done because we strike a deal with one of the Lady accountant who works with the Federal Ministry of Finance (FMF) and she rendered a tremendous help to us. My new partner initiated this idea and everything worked out successfully. In appreciation of your earlier assistance to me in receiving the Funds.

    I have decided to compensate you with the sum of $1.5 million in a Cashier's cheque of ( one milloin Five hundred Thousand United States Dollars). This is from my own share. I did this simply to show you that it is good to do good things to the right people always. Presently, I am in Paraguay for investment project with my own share under the advice of my partner.

    Meanwhile, I didn't forget your past efforts and attempts to assist me in transferring those funds despite that it failed us somehow. I will be sending you e-mail from time to time to know if you have received your share or not. Now contact my personal assistant in Benin.
    Here is my personal assistant contact in Benin contact him urgent for him to send the Cashier's cheque to you imedaitely.

    Bellow.

    Name __Mr Benson Wason

    Ttelephone__ +229 952 499 41

    Email___ ( bensonwason88@yahoo.fr )

    Best Regards.
    Barrister Williams Rich

    If there werent about 30 grammatical errors it might be semi-believeable. If people are going to scam someone you'd think they would take the time to learn at least 3rd grade english.
