OT-Nigerian car scam(long )

I placed an online ad for my sons car-(he's in NY) Heres the mails---unfortunately,the latest is at the top....Its still going on.....My other son will bring in his FBI friend at exchange (if it happens!),and we will offer my MB SL32 AMG for a knockdown price to REALLY get them going...This all started yesterday,Dec 13 and boy do they respond FAST!!


And so the Saga ends for the day, tune in tomorow, when we learn:

You can't FedEx to a PO Box
The bank will be located close to my Friends house, what luck
And more zany fun with MRS419 4 MY MR2, including requests for photos ;)

Thank you, again, Because I have a New York bank acount, there is an automatic delay in crediting my account, on any deposit, regardless of the bank it is issued
from. Another factor is the checks ammounts. New banking laws require the banks to report activity of 10,000 or greater. May I suggest the issuance
of two checks of $5,000. This way, I can deposite them on different days as to not be reported. However, I have another idea, if the check is from a
local bank and ot is certified, I can always drive to that bank and cash it
there. I Love to drive, and I do have the rest of December off of work. I could always drive out and cash it right at the bank. Let me know the local banks
name and branch number, as they are usually funny when it comes to cashing another branches check, however I have never had a problem cashing a
certified check at the issuing bank. awaiting your response,

From: fatimah turei
thanks for the mail. i would like you to give me your phonenumberwhere i can reach you as soon as the payment is received. also, the whole email has ben read and understood. the check will be certified and will be drawn on a local bank. this will make the funds to be available earlier depending on how effective is the bank that you use. any how, i will make arrngement to for the payment to be made toyou so that u can receive it by 20th that you will be in florida. thanks for everything and i hope i can really trust you with these funds. sorry if i sound rude but i just need to be sure that i am on the right side. i also believe that the four keys to sucessful business includes sincerity, honesty and trustworthyness. i will expect ur emailenclosing ur US contact phone number. god bless you and ur family. regards.........

As for RHD MOT recomendation, I need to know what port of entry you will be using. Payment can be made to: Gerard Rose
as I will be traveling, you can send the funds to my po box in FL. Theaddress is:
PO Box 8xxxx -
Boca Raton, Florida 33481

Again, I will arrive in FLorida on the 20th, and will not be able to pick up the check until then. I have to wait until the check clears before I will
make the exchange. However this may take some additional time. Because I have a New bank acount, any deposits made in FLorida require extra time to
clear. This typically ads three days to the normal bank clearance procedure. A check of $10,000 would take about business 5 days to clear. It may
take up to 8 days for the funds to be completely available. Is this a local or a forign check? Will it be certified? This may change the bank
clearance schedule. Since I need these funds to clear in order to pay the shipping, and complete the purchase of my new car. I hope this wait is not too
long. I will continue to show the car, but I will not sell it to anyone. When the check clears I will remove the ads, and notify any other buyer. Please let
me know if this is alright?

From: fatimah turei

will take care of the shipping. the excess fund is not just for shipping the car but some otherthings that i have for them to ship for me.
and for the MOT and RHD, i will also take care of that if the need arise. but i wouldn't mind if you can recoment one for me . may be i could
switch.let me know and for the car, im really intersted. all other terms of the contract is okay with me. thanks and god bless. so i await your info
for me to have the payment get to you ASAP. reply soonest........regards

I think paying $5,000 for shipping is quite high. I know a shipper who canship it for less than half of that. The car will not be in Florida till
20th of DEcember. where is your shipping agent located? Mine is in Miami. I have dealt with him many times before and know I will have no
problems. I will not remove the ad until I recieve payment and it has cleared my account, but you have my word, I will not sell it, to anyone else,
but must be cautious. I have already had 2 offers fall through. It is a lovely car and I know you will enjoy it. How are you dealing with MOT. I
have a great contact in England. DO you need RHD Conversion. please let me know about the shipping.

From: fatimah turei
thanks for the early response. am so intersted and will not be prepared to lose the car.in view of this, i will have my client in the states
issue you a check of $10,000. on receipt, i want u to deduct the cost price and have the excess fund wired to my shipping agent (via western union ) who
will come for the pick up from ur location asap. i hope i can trust u for this transaction to be effected. so reply with your full name you want
on check, full address and phone number so that i can get the payment to u soonest. at this point, i want you not to honour any other offer so i will
implore u to remove the ads to avoid you taking other offers. thanks for your anticipated co-operation and i expect your reply ASAP. god bless you and ur family. regards

My name is Gerard, and I am the Title holder for this car. My Father is assisting me in selling it. You can find photos at
http://xcars.com/showad.cfm?adid=xxxx I am driving it to Florida this week.
Your location should not be an issue, as I have imported and exported cars to England before. Do you have a shipper in mind, or may I recomend
one. I also have several contacts who can do the necessary conversion for MOT, and
help secure registration, if the UK is the final destination. I also know an excellent Japanese RHD specialist who cana swap the car over for
you, however I never minded LHD in England. I am asking $5,000 for the car. It has a sunroof, 5sp, 2.2L motor. Great little car, really fun to
drive, quite tossable, great on twisty roads. I have just put in a new Radio, while doesn't have LW, it has MW and FM. It does play CD's with MP3's as
as normal ones. I also changed the speakers. It sounds great. Take a look at the photos, and let me know what you think.
