Well I am having a little fun with this guy who wants me
to send him some EXTRA Money for a boat. The check arrived today.
And of course the called from overseas and is demanding his money

To bad he will have to wait....forever ENJOY

Thanks for your call today. Sorta neat to talk to someone from the UK. Tommorrow I may have to go to the doctor. So I don't know
if I can get to the bank. Sorta a all day thing. I have a bad case of genital herpes. I have had a small break out on
my left testicle and I need to have it looked at. Looks like maybe Wednesday would be the day that I can
foward your shipping money via WESTERN Unions. I hope that this does not inconvience you in anyway. This is great
we are planning on buying a 89 in New television for our home. The $7500 for the boat is going to almost pay for it.
I am getting the other $250 from the sale of my sons wheel chair to Good Will. This is going to create some good
times for our family.

Thanks for your understanding

That is so very nice of you. I wish that there where more good ole folks like you in the USA.
Your father is going to love this little boat. Great for fishing. My son who has cerebal paulsy is now to large and heavy for me to lift into the boat. Somehow he knows that I am selling it.

We will have to make other arrangements for some life time memories

Look foward to the check

PS I still am wondering how to contact you via phone or your shipper

Greetings
Thank you very much for the swift response towards my offer on your lovely (Boat) you posted for sale. However i would also like you to understand that the price $7,500 stated for it is perfectly ok with me after conversating with my wife about it. Concerning the payment mode i have just concluded with my Accountant & my shipping agent here in the state and have instructed my Accountant to make a cashier's check of $12,500 for the payment and shippment . Because i would not be in the state then to take care of all these .As a result of these i want them to handle this for me and less i forget that the shippment and freight would be completly and perfectly handled by my shipping agent who will be coming along with my Lawyer for all the necessary paper works to your place for the pick up.That is after you have gotten the check cashed at the bank then deduct payment fee including an extra $50 for yourself & All other charges then the rest of the funds would be shippment funds should be sent to my shipper via western union money transfer or Moneygram because my shipping agent will use the money for the pick up . I also have some other shippments to done . Please i want you to understand that the reason why you have receiving such a huge amount is that i also have another shippment to be done in the state which i want to ship down to Canada and hes currently incharge of them all .
Kindly go through this mail comprehensively and get back to me with the details below for the payment to reach you as soon as possible :
Name to send the check to James Kran
Address to send the check to 08 Land O Lakes Blvd
Including city, state & country Land O Lakes, FL 34639 USA

I had the same scam tried on me when I was selling a Hobie Cat. They would be a lot more convincing if they had a clue how to write English and normal grammar. What would be nice would be to work with the cops and have them pick up the guy when he went to get the "extra" money.

02-18-2008, 12:25 PM
Keep after him. Ask if he got the check yet. Tell him you will send it again...and again....and......

I love how these people just make a living off of scamming greedy people.

How many emails does everyone receive about winning a lottery in the UK, or a check from the IRS, or something from the UN?

Most of us just ignore and delete, but there are some fools who do get involved, and that payoff is what keeps these people going.

Maybe get a check from one of your earlier days (closed account), write it out for 10k, send it to him as some "extra" and ask him to send you the "extra extra" back. Maybe if you go round and round enough the guy will send you a million $ for your $7500 boat!

Nice Work! Don't limit yourself to screwing w/ just international idiots. You can have just as much fun w/ telemarketers.

Example:

Tellemarketer: Is Mr. Atkins or the person in charge of paying the bills available?

Mr Atkins: I am afraid Mr Atkins was arrested earlier today for conducting lewd acts on a domesticated animal. You wouldn't believe the mess one man, a German Sheppard and 12" of black rubber can create! If you would like to see the Polaroids I would more than happy to email them to you. Say, would you be interested in lowering your monthly phone bill...

Joking again, but just funny that you mention our partners @ Houston MC by name.

Maby yummming up Shiner Bock at 9 in the morning with April was a bad idea.

Just a side note our first boats with the new style JL grills came today and they look awesome!

Had a co-worker work one over pretty good. He arranged to meet them "in person", in some south american country. They were supposed to pick him up at the airport. He gave them flight info and everything. Of course, he never bought a ticket, but they were waiting for him at the airport. He gave them a sob story about somebody in jail, or something and arranged another "flight". Very funny stuff. He strung them along for the better part of a month.

Teh guy had called 10 times in the last 2 days. Now demanding his money. On speaker phone we told him finally after a dozen excuses why I had not gone to the bank yet. Then I told him that Wachovia was my bank where the FAKE check was from. He still could not understand what the check did not go through. Then this morning after I sent him some more excuses he sends this

What an idiot !!! Oh well it breaks up the day




Alex Good Morning



I went to may bank today. Bank of America and deposited the check

Went to Western Union per your instructions and sent the money



10 digit # is 1Q5R783001



It can be picked up at anytime



Are you interested in some more boats. I have another for sale

a 1958 Sleek Craft. 16 footer with a 2004 50 MERC EFI. Runs perfect

I like it more than the Whaler. The extra money would allow us a surrond sound

system for our television. I put and extra $100 dollars that you snet into the

wire transfer for your troubles. The extra money was not needed. I am sorry that I could not get to the bank on Monday with it being closed





Thanks again

Thanks for the mail back Jim,How is your health? i will like you to know that i received an email from the shipping company this morning and i told them that i have contacted you and you said you will have the funds transfered to them today.

So i will like you to proceed as you said, what i really want you to do now is that i want to have the check deposit to your account and witdraw the excess immediately this morning, cos your bank can be telling you to wait for some days, and i will not want any delay with the shippment funds, cos if that occurs they will charges me for delayment fees and demorages fees which that will cost me an extra fees, so when you get to your back just witdraw the shippment funds and have it send this morning okay, so that thing will be fine in both side.Thanks i will be on my computer waiting for the westernunion details from you.

Alex.

N:B when you get to the westernunion tell them this is a family transaction, cos if you tell them the thruth they will request for an extra money, just tell them you are sending the money to your friend okay.

For more stories of scamming the scammers, find here some guys with WAAAAYYYY too much time on their hands (scroll down page, pick a headline and click on it)

http://419eater.com/html/letters.htm

These scammers are amazing, they go after people with ads, send random emails asking to help move money out of a country. A friend of ours stumbled on a long distance love scammer via one of the most common online dating sites, but figured it out before money was sent for airline tickets or other pleas.

So I am playing a game with you? That's the joke of the day...don't ya think? You are stupid or what?

I have sent you 3 emails telling you to go screw yourself. Even told you on the phone

what a JOKE you are. Then I send you an email...and like a MORON you reply.



Look Wachovia Bank has your check. It was a pretty bad copy job I knew from the beginning I was being set up.

You are like the 3rd person I have done this to. I hope that I did waste your time.

Wasted your money on a overnight package 20 calls to the US from where ever you called from



Get a job...get a life. You have been had you MORON





You have made the 500 peolpe that have read your emails. The FBI has your emails

Wachovia has your funny money check and Western Union has all the info



PS HAVE A NICE DAY

Jim,

Is this kind of a game or what are you doing?I gave the Confirmation number to my shipper and he told me that he was very dissapointed in me, He told me on getting to the bank he was told that there is no transfer made on the confirmation number given. So I will appreciate if you would be able to refund my money cause I am not happy with the kind of game you are acting with me.

I need you to get back to me, its urgent.
