Default What do you guys think about this?

I got this email today regaurding the boat I have for sale.


Hello ,

I have forwarded all your Boat information to my client for him to release the fund to you, due to time constraint on the fact that he is always a busy Man.

I'm delighted to tell you that he appreciate your concern and has commended your Boat with full interest,My client is willing to carry on with this transaction, You are hereby inform that payment will get to you in an amount of $26,800 which cover's the cost of your boat and amount for shipment.He have also instructed his Financial Institution to release the fund. So you are required to deduct the cost of your boat $19,500 when payment gets to you and refund balance $7,300 to our agent ( the shipper ) for him to be able to offset shipping payment, tax charges and other cosmetic repair costs if any.

After payment has reached you and balance sent to shipper, the shipper's agent will come for inspection, pick up of boat & signing of title papers, make some cosmetic touches if there is need for it and drive to a prepaid shipper to be shipped to the approve destination.

Please confirm your acceptance by sending to me your FULL NAME, ADDRESS AND PHONE NUMBER, for payment to be issued out to you asap. All other information needed in completion of this transaction will be communicated to you in due time.

We look forward to have your information for payment to be made to you;

NAME:.............
ADDRESS:..........
PHONE:............

Your honesty, understanding and co-operation will be highly
appreciated.

Have a wonderful day.

Don........

Simple, you get an out of US cashiers sheck. You put it in your bank and they say its good (BS and the bank actually has 0 liabuility later). You pay out the money for the shipper. The boat sits... and sits...and sits... and you wonder WTF is going on. Your bank calls you after about a week or two and says they have bad news. You first show shock, yell at the bank, threatin to go after them in court, they have you talk to a manager, you realize they passed the buck and you have no recourse, you end up having to explain to your wife that you not only have not sold the boat, but you gave away $7500.00 and now need to pay storage fee's on the boat before it gets leen sold. Your wife realizes that a bunch of scammers have taken advantage of the man she once loved and respected, she packs up the kids and heads to her mothers, you fall into a deep depression, your boss fires you for not concentrating at work, your wife finds out and files papers, you try to find someone new but with no money, no job and no boat (leen sale) the best you can do is an abused single mother of 3 with a bad smoking habit and an affection for latex you try to redeem yourself with a hooker, you cant perform, you take 6 viagra and seven shots of whiskey and pass out on the local railway tracks, you awake just in time to see the train coming but cannot roll out of the way due to the viagra kicking in. We on OSO set up a fund for you that ends up going to your wife that has sence remarried a guy who sold his boat through a broker and didnt get scammed.
Its an old story, dont let it happen to you! Im just sayin!
