You would think that these guys could get more original but this scam is quite common in Nigeria. They are still targeting people from US and Europe. This sounds like a cleshea but if it sounds to good to be true it probably is. So don't bother with these guys and spread the word.

This is what I got....

Hello,
Thanks for your reply. I am okay with the price and this is how i will want us to seal this transaction cos i don't want any delay at all. So all i am going to do is to contact my associate in the USA to issue you a certified Bank Check of 5,000 euros which will be for both the shipping and your own money 700 euros .So all i will want you to do when you receive the check is to deduct your own money and send the remaining shipping funds of 4,300euros through WESTERN UNION MONEY TRANSFER to my International shipping agent that will come for the pick up.

So if this terms are okay by you i will need your contact address and phone number so that i can forward to my associate who will be issuing you the
check.

N/B :The shipping funds will be wired to my international agent that will come for the pickup he will be the one to arrange the pickup and shipping of the Takoon skoop4 From your location to where i am living.Now that we have an agreement I will like you to remove the advert you placed on the website so that you will receive no more offers.the cheque will be sent to you via fedex courier services.I will give you a call as soon as you reply
info required to send cheque:.
FULL NAME ........
FULL ADDRESS.........
CITY............
STATECOUNTRY..........
ZIPCODE........
PHONE NUMBER...........
Best Regards,
Mr Goldman

Wow,
After a crazy story like all of those ones...looks like those guys do TELEMARKETING. It's exactly the same story!!!
Amazing, i just got a Letter from Nigeria with a 5,500$ Check from a Sterling Bank in the States.
My bank told me that for one year the amount can be taken out my account.
Anyway i knew there were somthg fishy but all that confirms it.
Thx TOBY .

I sold a car over the internet 4 yrs ago and STILL get these emails about it- the best thing to do is copy and paste them into http://www.spamcop.net which gets their email addresses shut down. Got to fight back!!

Concerning the pick up i've arrange that with my shipping firm because they are picking it up along with other goods that are to be shipped for me in the state AND the shipping firm will contact u as well for a strong arrangement...... All you need to do is to get the cheque cashed at your bank immediately you do receive it,deduct the total cost and get the remainning fund send to the shipping firm sameday via Western Union Money Transfer so that the shipping firm will be coming to your location for the pick up....pls kindly make all the document ready to enhance a smooth shipment.
