Scammers are fun

Here is the correspondance I have had with one of these bright lights - the boat was advertised on gear swap as a Prijon Tropical Depression the fore runner to the Prijon Hurricane preferred b yFlorida white water enthusiasts as a better option than a hurricane - so here is our correspondance to date:

Cool - I am glad to be selling this boat the prijon tornados are finally out
now and I gotta get one asap - they are taking the playboating world by
storm and I want to be able to compete in the Lower Mississippi Extreme
Waterfall Challenge this October.

here is my info


Hello Dustin
Got your mail and thanks for the informaion.The check will be sent out next week and to inform you that it will be an over payment which the balance on it is meant for the shipping company.So when you have received it and it has cleared your bank, i want you to send the balance via western union to my shipper who will be coming to pick it up.I hope all is well cleared and understood.I await your response soon to know if we have a deal. so do excercise patience and let other
interested buyers know that the unit has been sold.
Waiting for your swift response.

nice, glad somebody is getting back at those muts. Maybe that is the best way to stop them. Have everyone fuck with them so much that they give up.

Make sure you send him on at least 3 trips to Western Union - The first one, explain that you got the name wrong. The second one, tell him that you forgot to hit "send" on the online account. If he still around, tell him that Your request got bounced.

Even better- try to fully scam him. When he sends you the fake cashier's check, tell him that you heard something about some "internets scam" and that you'd feel a whole lot better about the transaction if he would wire YOU $10 as a "good faith gesture" - then you promise to send him the cash left back on his phony check. If he's dumb enough to send you $10 via Western Union, go buy yourself a 12 pack.
