I was watching a show about lotto winners the other day and a couple got scammed out of $750,000. Even if it's 1 successful scam, you can make big money.

Theres so many scams out there, I was selling an old Coke machine on Craigslist and this moron from Canada emails and says he wants it, OK great. Two days later I get money orders for 10 times the amount, then a day later I get another email saying I received the wrong amount and would I kindly get a cashiers check for the difference and send it. I knew when I received the first email what was going on and then strung the loser out a bit by telling him the banks were closed in the states due to it being first Kennedy Day then Dahmer Day as in Jeffrey Dahmer, he just kept trying to get the refund till I told him that I knew his Mom and Sister..... Intimately!

By the way the scam is the money orders were either stolen or bogus so if you deposit them and then used the funds you were responsible to the bank when they figure out there no good.

I found a bunch of scams related to exotic pets... I was looking for a couple F1 Savannah cats about a month ago and its amazing how quickly you get these ridiculous offers.... western union money to madagascar and whatnot....

This one had said it was a lady that claimed her poor daughter was recently hit by a bus and she bought the cats for her daughter and needed to get rid of them immediately as they just reminded her of her dead child..... so messed up.

dude if he's sending you the money before you send the car then do it.he's not asking you to send the car first who cares if he doesn't want to talk to you. money talks bullshit walks.tell him to send the money once you have it in your hands send him the car.

It's a scam.
Even if it weren't, do you want to be involved at all with the export of a BMW to freakin' Malaysia?

Snap out of it!
