  I want to buy your ___ e-mail scam from overseas

Hey guys I have an advertisement here on TP (for a trencher/backhoe). Today I got an e-mail from overseas that said:
_______________________________________

Hello,
I read the advert of your tractor item/part listed for sale on www.jplan.com. I would like to know if it is still available for sale as i am interested in buying it from you. and also in your response to my inquiry notify me on the present condition and your asking price.I would be looking forward to your immediate response with all requested info.
thanks
Thomas

______________________________________

What they do is offer you a check for much more than the purchase price, then they want you cash it. The check clears long enough for you to send them back, or they send a currier by to pick it up, for the difference which can be in the thousands. They say they will arange shipping and thy never call or come back. That's not so bad yu get to keep your tractor and they keep the difference, right? NOT SO FAST---your bank calls you to tell you the check was a forgery and you have to make the check good and pay back the money to them.

  I want to buy your ___ e-mail scam from overseas

This week they told how many billions were stolen by such on the national news with the international arresst of 500 plus people.

It is really amazing how many scams there are and then how often they work.

Two old saying are still true: If it sounds too good to be true it and buyer (seller) beware.

If you're stupid enough to fall for a scam like that, you deserve to loose your money.

WW,
Do you know if I can put a toll booth on that bridge?

I had a similar email message from several people when I posted stuff for sale. It was so obviously a scam that I didn't even bother replying.

I had one person that was so lazy, they never changed the email responding to a motorcycle ad to be one responding to my tractor ad.

The emails are written in very poor English and the Sales Pitch is a real basic classic and yet the Fools get seperated from their money and then yell for the Police.
The real leeches are the Anna Nicole Smiths and the ones who take advantage of the dying, those people should be lined up and well you all fill in the blanks.

  I want to buy your ___ e-mail scam from overseas

yeah, earthwrks.. I too had an ad here on TP and today I got the same exact e-mail from Thomas....some times I answer and even get them to send me a check which is many thousands over the price.. and that's according to how I feel and how many beers I've had; but most of the time I just delete it. I think last count I have eleven [and that's checks and not beers] I've given them to the police before but nothing comes of it. You're real dumb if you go thru with it. I like 'em to send the check and it's drawn on a bank in Fla. most of the time. I give 'em one of my cat's mane and the postal lady knows who is up to no good. Have a good day and thanks for posting this. It should be very benefical to the members here.

Charlie: Too funny! I did the same thing just to screw with them. 'cept mine wasn't beer-induced. I figure any time they waste with me is valuable time they can't spend on someone else. Eleven checks----daaaaang! I gave them a reply giving them a sob story that me and the (non-existent) wife were in a bad car accident and we both lost our jobs and gonna lose our home so I'll take many thousands less for my trencher (things keep going they way they are and I'll have to! Laughing out loud). ANd of course they want to see "recent photos", you know number, they don't want to get taken hahahahaha. He offered his fax but I told him I don't have a fax, but give me his address and I'l be more than happy to send pix (and the FBI) to his house!
