Bruc,

The only payment I will accept is CASH or a wire
transfer.

Please provide me the name of your Bank, Account# and
routing # so the wire can perform a wire.

Thanks,
DA

The reason "they" keep trying to scam us, it works often enough not to stop.

Imagine how many such "negotiations" a con artist could initiate in a given day. It wouldn't take much of a percentage of naive souls to make a profit.

These people are nuts. Have you read the one that is under "fishing and miscellaneous items" on this forum? I'm a charter guide and have had two of these. It looks like the same person writing all of them. He/she must have a bunch of different email addresses. Mary Jones from London Spain and Scott Desmond from Madrid Spain and he is a "dog breeder". Hpoefully somebody is working on catching these people. BW23 where were you trying to sell it? On this site?

BW23,

If you've still got the orginal e-mail you should forward it to Spoof Ads......these guys are dogs and just love to sniff out the senders of spam like yours.

Wow, whoever falls for that needs to have their head examined by a doctor. Do you think they use such poor grammar to lead you to believe that they are not smart enough to scam you?
