Scammers... go to hell.

I don't understand this shit:

18 months ago I sold my 190E. It was on autotrader.com for that time that it was for sale. Now, i keep getting these scamers asking me what my lowest asking price for it is, even though I sold it and took it off autorader way over a year ago. Here's the latest one...

Quote:
Hello,

I want to buy your vehicle ,please get to me with your last bottom price and its recent mileage ASAP .Include its recent interior pics if any.

Thanks.
I just responded with, "Please tell me where you saw the advert and I'll give you more information."

Hmm... thoughts of copying that laptop payback are circulating in my head.... ... harder to do with a car though.

Con artists SUCK! I hate these clowns who spend more time trying to scam, con, lie to folks to make a buck than trying to be productive. They're nothing but "low lifes" - they'ld con their own mothers...dickheads!

Death2000, mine was the 2.6 (auto, wanted the 5spd though). It was an awesome baby benz. It was a good car till the shit hit the fan and everything decided to break at the same time. Would've cost me alot more than the car was worth to fix. Sold it for $2000 (I think) sometime ago.

Here's his latest response:

Thank you for your response,i saw your AD ON THE INTERNET(benzworldmarketplace.org)and would like you to know that my client considers your vehicle OK for him and would appreciate if you send more of interior pics.of the vehicle and get back with your last bottom price OK.

WAITING...
Ok, so who's got a plan of action

Tell him "sorry too late you missed a fantastic deal" - then dress it up like - it was armoured, bullet proof glass, full wet bar, and you threw in a driver for 1 year.

My response to him...
Quote:
Hmm, well, how do I know that this isn't a scam? I've recieved many offers from people having "clients" Never a client themselves. So do tell me how I'm suppose to assume you as different?

and I'll be WAITING
This is getting tiresome. I don't think I'll have the patience to go on. I just hate how these people go around preying on others.

actually that nigerian spam thing is nigeria's fifth largest industry. We all recognize these as scams, but there is a portion of our population which are unable to determine these as scams. And while 99% of the people out there will throw these away that 1% will answer and get sucked in. What I do when I need to throw out an email on the web for a specific purpose is create a new email address. when I am done I throw it away and if I should need to stay in contact with someone, I'll send them my real email address. So once the car is sold, they get a bounce message.

I was buying some Wave Runners off of ebay (in the picture) and I was obviously the high bidder. Anyways, some random guy in New York (The sale took place in Oregon), contacted the second highest bidder and offered the wave runners to him if he just sent the $5,000 to a specific address. Luckily, the second highest bidder contacted me and asked why I wasn't buying them (I did though). He would have lost his shorts along with $5,000.

That's what Craig's list does, it creates an email for each item and the seller is contacted through the service.
