    i'm really tempted to accept their cashiers check.. and when someone comes to pick whatever it is up.. authorities will be waiting... think it'd work

    Yeah, but they might get a shot off at me before the cops can grab em. Plus they might give my address to other Nigerian scam guys. I could just give em a fake one I suppose...

    the thing is no one will ever come to pick it up because it's a bogus cashiers check, by the time it clears your bank they expect you would have shipped the product.,if you don't they aren't out a dime

    Lol it's a car though. What am I supposed to do, put it in a box? I might get them to send it and give it to the cops and have them super-sleuth it back to podunk arabia or wherever these shitheads are...:ph34r:

    (doubtful) I can just keep it as a souvenir!

    Z0mg! Check this:

    Its my friends car and im trying to get some numbers for him. Were putting together a dx with a low compression built jdm b16. The motor has just been re-built with wiseco .5mm over pitons, toda valves I believe with ferrara springs and retainers and the motor stands at 9-1 compression and were tring to figure out what we could boost to safetly. I know its also in the tune and thats why its going to jeff evans when it is finished. For now we are trying to get your responses. I also think this is the right section for this thread but if it is not let me know. Thanks

    (what i sent him back. It was from a random thread I clicked on.)

    His response:

    Ok, here's the message I sent him. Keep in mind my name is my e-mail address...so yeah.

    Ok the price is $1500 here are a few piktars!
    My name is Jack Meehoff. I don't quite know my address. I'll have to go outside to look for it. I'll get it back to you when I can, it might be a while. We don't have a phone because we're poor. Just DSL. We're supposed to be getting indoor plumbing next week. I'm so excited! And I just can't hide it! I'm about to lose control and I think I like it!

    Cheers mate!

    Jack

    and I sent him:
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    and a couple of animated gifs I had in my pictures folder. I hope this isn't a real guy...:lol:

    My friend got caught in this.

    Even better, they fucked up the scam. They just sent him the 3 money orders and THEN the email. The money orders were in his hand.

    We examined them, they looked perfect. Took them to the bank (Without even responding to the letter) and they were fakes. Police taking over now.
