And I thought that my new Nigerian friend had an extra special offer just for me! And just when I'm about to help him out, you tell me he made the same offer to you too! It looks like he didn't even bother to change the email he sent me, just copy and paste - I feel so betrayed.

This is just one of many scams. Another one now is to contact you when you are selling a vehicle, especially a collector type vehicle. Say you are asking 20,000.00. They ask you if they could have someone look at the vehicle and if interested they will recontact you. Well the shill shows up and likes your car. The real crook recontacts you by email and asks if you will take 25,000.00 for the vehicle and pay 2,500.00 for shipping. He tells you to keep the remainder.

 

The crook sends you a check that looks very good and asks you to pay the shipping invoice immediately, that being 2, 500.00. You deposit the check, send the 2,500.00 and hold onto the car as an insurance policy because you want to ensure the check is good before you ship your car to someone.

 

A week later the bank calls you and tells you that the check from overseas bounced. You still have your car, but the bad guy has the 2,500.00 for shipping and that is all he wanted all along. It turns out the shipping company was a fake also, they just wanted your check.

 

Now that they have your account number it can get even worse as they can try to attack your account.

 

There is always something new being done with scams.

 

The main factor is they work on a person's greed.

 

If it seems too good to be true it usually is.

I had a guy try this one on me just a few months ago. I told him if he wanted the truck then he needed to show up with cash in hand. I never heard back from him.
