Heads Up--Scamer Back on Buzz Swap

in response to Buzz Swap Ad,
Eric Paul
<> sent:

Good morning to you right over there, I will like to know if this item is still for sale and If it is, is the condition still remain as described in the advert?Also I will be waiting for your response at your earliest convenience.

Have a blessed day
Best Regards,
You may have seen this, often in sketchy English. He/She/It wanted to send a cashiers check, and have a transport co pick item up, said he wanted to sell it in "his store" when asked where he would use kayak, so far no real contact info supplied on requests, or phone number to discuss, probably forgot what "the item" really is etc, etc. It sounds like the old rubber cashiers check scam.

Boaters are fairly cautious by nature- so this is not a good place to look for suckers.

Are you serious? The internet has scammers? Who knew?

I got the same offer today on my Hero that is for sale.

I just trashed it as I was 99% sure it was bogus.

This is annoying though!
