    Sounds like a scammer to me.Reply that you will only accept US cash for payment from international buyers and that you would like to to the transaction in person so they have the opertunity to veiw the vechicle before paying for it.see what the responce is to that.

    a friend who deals in cars had someone from england or something like that wanna buy an Eclipse from him and sent him a cashiers check or something even. He did some research and found it to be a scam too and kinda sounds like yours.

    I string him along. Waste his time as much as possible. I sold an old laptop last week in the city (delivered to the buyer already), and I'm still emailing back and forth with a scammer about when I'm going to drop it in a fedex box for them...

    I know there are some pretty dull crayons in the big box we call society but how can someone (i.e. scammers) actually expect a seller to fall for such a ploy?

    If nuthin else the punctuation and use of verbage is so astoundingly poor that one cannot help to say wtf?

    You'd think they'd clean up the wording to at least appear plausable.

    Idgits!

    If you email him back saying if he can arrange pickup , then he can also arrange going to the bank and getting cash , they won't email you back anymore on this particular thing .

    You do know this is the typical "nigerian scam" right? This type of activity is the second biggest source of income to their country so some dumb ****s are falling for it. Major props to Newyorkin, I admire your work and hope to mess with them myself if the chance arises.

    Unfortunately, someone was correct when they said "There is a sucker born every minute" or something like that... many people getting burned on this scam every year because they don't think and just see the dollar signs.
