Is this a scam

Is this a scam the price for the manta was 9,500 Like maybe get a check and they show up get the car and find out the check did not clear? Yeah the pric is ok by me and my creditor in the USA will send you a cashier's cheque of $14,000 and all you have to do when you get he cheque is deduct the cost of the Manta Montage, and Transfer the difference to the shipping company resposible for the pickup of the Manta Montage.

The funds are to be wired via WESTERN UNION MONEY TRANSFER so if you are ok with this offer i need your FULL CONTACT ,ADDRESS and PHONE no to which the cheque will be sent to.
Best Regards.


Well spotted guys and it's a tragedy that some honest folks lose their hard earned in this way. If you have time please check out this site. It is the funniest and most compelling reading ever, and the owner of this site has made a career out of scamming the scammers, even getting money out of them, arranging to meet them and catching them on CCTV. He adopts many ridiculous (to us, but obviously not to the average Nigerian)characters and goes at them. He encourages everyone who receives such a 419 letter, to carry out their own scambeating, but read up the tricks of the trade first. I promise it will crack you up... /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif

Anything with payment by Western Union is a scam. There is NO RECOURSE with Western Union.

Western Union should be used for sending cash to your kid in college or grandma in Florida, something like that. THATS IT.

I will take a copy of your posts and send them to the Metropolitan police who are supposed to cover London.
I would not hold out any hope that this address checks out
or that the name is genuine. The address is just south of the river in the east end of London - not a good place to visit at all. I think the Police only go there in large groups. It's tiger country......
I just sent this to Joe. Joe the check did not show up yet! If you sent it. You must cancel it immediately. We have had someone steeling mail from the mail box in front of our house. I now have a hold on my mail at the post office so, I can get my mail there. Sorry for the inconvenience,


Which Florida Bank was it drawn on? I can have our bank security initiate a fraud alert. It it was our bank, perhaps we can make life interesting for someone.
