OT - idiot scammers on the swap

i could not believe this idiot scammer who emailed me from the swap - LOL.

from "[email protected]" as the actual sender email address:

> pbowman,
> Have you sold your Super EZ playboat yet?
> I am interested to buy it if you can ship it to Chicago area and we can
> agree on the price.
> Regards,
> SuperEZ fan.

too bad the boat already sold - i would really consider shipping to chicago. if i had the time i would sign this idiot up for a bunch of porn sites and overload his fakey email account.

hope you enjoy the boat Skip. later all.

Shit... how did the scammer get onto the swap? I haven't been able to get there for several days.

What's up with the swap anyway? Is it gone for good?

I have noticed that there are some other problems on the site too. There is spam in the playpark forum, and last week when I tried post a reply it said it did work due to some sort of failure of some kind. I did it again and got the same message. Then I gave up and later saw the reply posted twice. Ugh!

Anyone else having trouble?

I wouldn't automatically assume this guy is a scammer. "I am interested to buy it" might be a grammatical tip off but the hardcore scammers are usually much more obvious.

FWIW, I sold my EZ at the beginning of the season to a woman in Salt Lake City. I told her upfront that she'd have to paypal me in advance and accept the boat as is, which she did. She paid the fees for Confluence to ship it out there via Forward Air. Unfortunately for me, I wasn't thinking about the cut paypal takes when we negotiated the price.

Oh yeah, he did say that. As a test to see if he's really a boater, maybe we should ask him at what altitude do the deer turn into sheep, or if he just paddles back up to his car when he's done kayaking.

I dont know why all the paranoia, you dont ship till you have the money. Nothing else matters.
