When confronted with that line I usually ask the buyer to show his good faith and provide me with some nude pictures of his sister.Haven't got any yet.

My Buddy, cole, is quite persistent.
I think he is up to 3-4 tries on my Studio 20s. :shock:

He keeps emailing me for all my info and I respond by telling him that he will really
enjoy my speakers and he won't be disappointed with them.
Then I say give me your number so we can talk in person to discuss payment
and pick up.

Here is his latest response:

Get Back To Me Now...

Hello,.

I will give him full marks for work ethic... LOOOSSER! :evil:

Best thing to do is block all his email addresses and any other SCAMMER addresses you know of. Then you won't have do waste your time on his BS. I think they should be called SCUMMERs not SCAMMERS.

Here's another one. 'Lance' responded to my ad asking for a photo and 'last' price. When I sent photos and description, he replied:

[color=darkred] Thanks for the explanation, and i'm ok with the price. well i want you to mail me the name that will be on then cheque when issuing out, and also i want you to know that you should not bored about the pickup, my shipper will be the one coming for the pickup for the unit. Hope all is cleared and understood.

Below is the Adress Information:

ADDRESS INFORMATION:

First Name_
Last Name_
Address_
City_
State_
Zip_
Phone
Number_
Country[/color]_

Lance


Awfully poor grasp of English for someone named 'Lance Wilson', asking me for address info as if he doesn't know what city/country I'm in - the ad states that. I told him the item is sold.

Looks like "Lance" is back...

Got this today:

Am intersted in buying your (roo) So i want you to explain the condition, and i will need the picture of it, also mail me your last price, and just to let you know that i will be paying with (Money Order) ok. I will be looking forward to hear from you. Thanks and have wonderful day.

Makes me wonder, what's a "roo"? I"m selling a Parasound P3 - which to my knowledge has never been refered to as a "roo"!

It almost looks like the info in brackets is form variables - like this is being pumped out my a "scam engine".

Tell him that he has contacted the wrong person as you are not selling a kangaroo.
