to a firstname.lastname@example.org!! oh, don't forget the $3K shipping i'm charging him; he says "NO PROBLEM"!! and when he requested a picture of the "item" he got a nekkid woman w/ 3 breasts!! & guess what, STILL NO PROBLEM!!
you can't shake these guys once you respond to them - they figger they're going to be able to get you for something if you answer them; i do it once in a while just to screw w/ them. last time i did it for such a large sum the respondent
had to call in his mentor, because i was charging him $150K for a lot of 30 inspection calipers, plus $20K shipping; even
the mentor tried to run the scam after taking over.
like i said down below, i've dealt on the net for almost 10 years; i get these scams all the time (and EVERY time i post to the HPMofC Classifieds, they REALLY like the ads here! it only takes a few minutes to determine who's for real and who's not; i guarantee this one is a poorly educated Nigerian or lad from Singapore (2nd largest scammers heaven), going by the grammar and spelling.
almost 99% of the scammers are using free email addys, and
yahoo.co.uk is VERY popular. it is BEST not to respond to
these people, it's very possible you'll eventually get someone sending you a virus or trojan. i do like sending them the FBI homepage when they ask for my website address,
