    Yeah we get a couple a week. The new thing now is they call and use a relay service. The same kind of service hearing impaired people use. So they usually call and ask for 10,000 spark plugs for a chevy truck. We then inform them we only sell parts for bmw's. Then they say "please send me 10,000 spark plugs for a 94 bmw then". We reply "what model". We know it's fraud, but it can be entertaining on slow days. They are starting to pay with fake money orders too, so be careful. Sometimes they even verify as good the first time around.

    looks like thise idiots are out 10K at least, they borrowed the money from family........who all thought this was for real.

    I mean really, someone should have checked, they were renting in a single wide mobile home......then they think they are getting 40mill, so droping 1 mill+ on a house was no problem..............yeah sure ;)

    it was the listing agents brothers home, they had moved already............DOH!

    guess the buyers(per contract) were asked to verify funds......the selling agent said they would not(I would have killed the deal then) and would just bring the cash to closing.......prolly driving the new H2 with the bling bling..........oh wait....that was in there DREAMS! :D

    As widely circulated as 401 warnings are, it amazes me that there are still people don't recognize them for what they are.

    Whenever I get one of those e-mails... I write back, and tell them that I would be happy to help out, but they would first have to send me $50.00 as a sign of good faith! No $$ so far.

    See previous thread, all you have to do is send a model's picture to lonely fat chicks, they'll send you money!

    Sad, stupid and yet justice, all at the same time.

    Confused in Carolina
