I have had fun with these type emails several times. Id totally change details, even the color of the boat or car and prices, and they'd never catch on.

Re: How do I reply to this email???

I just responded with this email:

Dear Sir,
I'm not sure if you are aware of it or not, but my ad is for two engines that are a matched set. I'm not willing to break up the pair, but that's OK, I will give you both engines for the price of one and your offer of $17,500 sounds fair. That way you will have a spare that you can use in the future or sell if you like. Giving me half of the money up front is a generous gesture on your part...but certainly isn't neccesary. You can just pay my banker when you can save up all of the money. My banker lives in Nigeria and his name is Obeequay Obutatu. If you can send me your name, phone number and address, I will forward that information to him and we can get the ball rolling on this. He is a super nice guy and has completed many deals like this for me with good results. It's possible that he may ask you to send a check to him for like 15,000 extra, but we will give the difference back to you in cash.

Thanks for your interest and I look forward to hearing back from you soon!

Craig

When making this type of decision I find it much easier
to decide over a lap dance at my local Stripjoint.

Good luck
