Auto-Part You can never fool an honest man.

k2mooch You would think that by now, after all of the scams that were successful, SOMEONE high up in the chains of the banking industry would be kind enough to change the checking system to prevent this from happening.

I swear, it sucks to live in a world where NASA can build a car to drive on the moon and we can't even accept a check here on earth without some sort of problems. It's just sad how the easier of the two seems impossible.

ets1945 Of course the check would be philosophy on life is......."THERE AIN'T NO FREE LUNCH
03-31-2004 12:51 PM The check is bad, trust me. Read the links above. These scams are Nigeria's #1 industry.

ets1945 The way it could have worked in my case was that the check would of course be no good, I would be out $2,061 and he would have my parts...OR......the check would be good, I would have sold my parts AND they would have laundered money from who knows what enterprise.

TwistedDragon I got one of these, except mine was wanting to send me like 2.3 million dollars from a guy in Nigeria. Dr.Ojo or something. Mine was wanting me to get it, send back like half of it to someone else. All I needed to do was give them my account number Either he wanted my money or he wanted to get money to a country without having to go through some security between countries. I saved em just for a laugh.

k2mooch Just curious, how does it work and what purpose does it serve the scammer?

ets1945 I didn't go for it.....also sent the emails to the attorny generals office. I certainly hope that no one has fallen for this.

Anyone had this happen???

I have some parts for sale. I have had an inquiry about them and they want to buy them....BUT, here is the scenario.

A person in the UK wants to have a business associate of his send me a check here in the US for $2,200 for $139 worth of parts. I would then deduct my $139 and send him the balance
with the parts

Hummmmmmmm...let me think...........NO!!!!!

WTF!!!!!! Do they think I just fell off the turnip truck????

Anyone else had that happen????? Just curious if this is an ongoing money laundering scam.
