    This is a scam but there IS pleasure boating in the UK.
    Ireland, too.

    Nice beach at Guernsey.

    Tell him that since you work at the US Federal Trade Commission, that you will have to do it on a weekend.

    I've been playing with a scam from oversea's. This "dying" woman wants to send me a few mill but spend 75% of it for christian services. This is been going on for a good month. I must have been the "chosen one"

    Not only is this a scam, but it's money laundering. The only reason he wants to overpay you is to clean the money. Most likely, however, you will attempt to deposit the check and it will give them your account number. Shortly thereafter, your account will be emptied.

    I sold a Land Rover last year and some wacko contacted me representing a Suadi Prince. what would a Saudi Prince want with my 5 year old Land Rover. He offered more than it was worth and wanted my account number. I told him the bank will set up a dummy account to deposit the check. It will be restricted as an escrow account and then he can come get the car. I can go on with this, but you get the idea.

    Needless to say, once they figured out I wasn't biting, they stopped.

    am optomistic, I give everyone at least one chance?

    Actually, I just emailed him my name and work address and phone number, so if the check shows up, I can give it to one of my customers that happens to be an FBI agent in Philly. I used to be the "FUZZ" in a past life I think? I'll keep you all posted on this one!

    I may have been born at night, just not last night

    And YES, I knew it was a scam, just wanted everyone to see it just in case!

    When I get done playing with him, I will post his email address and we can all send him some spam

    His e-mail address probably changes on a daily basis.. I'm sure they scour every car, boat, motorcycle and anything else people are selling ad,,, in hopes of catching just one sucker..

    I received almost the exact same email for my Dad's Mercedes on Autotrader. I smelled a scam from the start. The guy wanted to pick up the car and title give me a bank check and give him a check for the difference.
