Default Scammer alert

zoe henry zoeh226@gmail.com

Almost commical. I'll spare you guys the details. Runs with the name Zoe Henry,(yes the Britsh female soap opera star, of all names to pick for a scam). Please be alert for this e-mail message if you are selling anything;


Thanks for the swift response and do as well advise on the least amount you will like to give it away as i am buying this for Dad and due to the nature of my job and location...i will not be able to come for inspection,am a very busy type as i work long hours everyday,i have gone through your advertisement and i am satisfied with it.

As for the payment..i can only pay via the fastest and secure way to pay online(PayPal) here.

I have a private courier agent that will come for the pick up after the payment have been made ...so no shipping included and With the issue of my details,transferring the name of ownership and signing of all paperwork will be done by the courier services company agent so you don't have to worry about that.

You can now send me your PayPal email so i can pay in right away and also include your address in your reply.If you don't have a paypal account, you can easily set up one...log on to www.paypal.com. and sign up its very easy... i would have loved to talk to you on phone but i work mainly offshore, our phone is down on the rig right now due to bad weather, that was why i sent you a text, i even wonder how my message deliver to your phone but for now we can only communicate through the same mailing channel.await your reply asap.

Thanks

Zoe

What you will hear next is how he will over pay due to a minimum amount he can transfer or some shit. He then makes you a good deal by saying to keep some and send him a money order for the difference. Nobody every comes to get anything, paypal pulls the money back out of your account because something not right with the source funds and you just got ripped the amount of the money order you sent him.

I got 5 bucks on this on.

I actually replied back to him/her to just send cash with the" buyer's agent" and all will be good. Wonder why he/she did not reply yet?

Been through this. They will want you to send a check to the "buying agent" to cover their "commission". I strung them along good once.

I tried to buy a 2003 Tahoe. They wanted to ship it to me and allow me to inspect it for 10 days. I gave them a fake name and a shipping address to a police station in Montreal. It's about 8hrs from where I live. Drives me nuts. I looked at 6 trucks and all but 1 was a scam.

The sad part of all of this is this guy is sooner or later going to find a fool to part with his money.
