    Someone tried to scam me

    Ok so I posted a few weeks ago about selling my car. Seemed kinda of like a scam, but not totally.

    OK so I've been contacting the guy, everything seems good, but its all a little too convenient.

    Well today I get his "cashiers check" in the mail...its a real, legal document, but not from a bank, its some kind of holding company. So its kind of like being in escrow.

    It has my money, plus money to pay the shipper. so after I send the car, he has 30 days to pull the money back, then hell have both the cash and the car.

    I told him to fuck off. Heres his email

    Where did he want the car shipped to?

    No way I would go for something like that -- it has to be a local bank, cashiers check or money order, or GTFO! Good call imo.

    Well, I'm glad you proceeded with caution. It pays to be skeptical

    IMHO I'd just trade it in on a new car @ this point. Bond can drive anything!.

    Suggestion: If you are particularly irritated by another member's posting habits and are constantly fighting the urge to flame them, you can click on that person's profile, and select "Add to ignore list." This will make that person's posts invisible to you.

    Me too, i have asked scammers that question and they never reply after i call them out. Or they jsut reply sorry, i will send you another check and then another fake check comes.
