Good one about the tractor.
On the next one that contacts me, I'm going to say : "So you are interested in buying my aunts used mattress and dildo, correct ?"

Default this scam

i also fell upon this email and it sounded to good to be true, i recieved a check for $2400 today in my name and it is an actual check

I have not took it to the bank to cash it yet

After seeing this I informed her I would cash it at walmart as I only do business with cash and no banks

Why did I recieve an overnite check and she said that everything is fine?

This seems legit

someone please email me with information

I have zero patience for this type of nonsense were there are victims to these scams. Gino, you will not be a victim , nor will I, but there is someone out there who will be a victim, it is inevitable.
I wanted to see what info I could get. I know it's a scam, I would like to know what it is. Even if they have your bank info, How can they empty it? All your bank info is on every check you write. I just wonder if it's stolen merchendise or will they try to get cash some way.

If I`m bored I f#ck with them. It can be real fun.

I replied that my name was Chuck Norris and asked them if they really wanted to buy a "55 gallon drum of whoop a$$".

Several emails were exchanged. It always gave me a laugh to open an email and see "Dear Chuck".

I gave them the address to the local police department, to send my cashier`s check to. I haven`t heard from them since.

How far do you want to go ???

Set up a new account and put $20 in it and give them that info

Talk to your bank and see if they will play along (Don't want overdraft fees) If i got one and had the time i would play it out and if the originator was in the states i would send over who ever was closest from this site to say hi and tell them they are Gino

But that is just me

I don't know how they get the cash once they do get your banking information, I am not educated in that end of how this scam operates. Open a dummy account like boatme suggests, this could get interesting, and we might all learn something...How bored are you? If you have the time, go for it.

I enjoy playing with them. The scam I got was from a dating website. This girl really wants to meet me but, she is out of the U.S. and currently in Nigeria buying items for her import business. She tells me that she wants to marry me and have children right away. If you know me, that will make me run faster than being scammed. She has her items in Customs and is short $550 to pay for the shipping. She also has a $24,000 check but can't get it cashed there. She(who ever) wanted me to send the money either MoneyGram or Western Union to the hotel manager named Enny Felix. I play along. I offer to wire-transfer the money(yeah right) to an account. She declines that offer. I tell her to set up an account there, wait a day, pull the cash out, and close the account. She says that she can't. I say that I won't send any money unless its a wire transfer. She comes back with she will send me the check for $24,000 as collateral if I send the $550. I say that I have to be in Nigeria at the beginning of next week for a meeting, I ask what hotel she is staying at, and that I will handle all transactions in person. The emails have made an abrupt stop.

I am sure there is a few stupid saps out there that have already sent these people money on this stupid scam.
