Is he serious? are people this dumb and would fall for this? here's the message he left me:

Hello

I am interested in buying the RUFF RACING R280 CHROME WHEELS 18" that you have placed for sell now, and I would want to enquire about the present condition of the above mentioned, as well as some detail about you. I expect this timely enough.

As for the payment, I would need you to get back in touch with the last asking price as I will be paying with a Credit Card.

Lastly, please forward to me your full company's (or house address, telephone and fax) details as I will subsequently prefer reaching you through these facilities.

Yours interestingly,

Raymond Griffiths


Should you need to reply to me, Please get back in touch with your details to me at: texmy12@yahoo.com for a quick reply.

If you are having problems with scammers at Benzworld, might I suggest you confine your business dealings to Feel The Love Enterprises? Our Herbal Viagra and our flagship Penis Enlargement Division are only two of our more well-known and world reknown business units, primarily focused on improving your unit. We also offer guaranteed income enhancement and financial windfalls through our Nigerian Email Division, and of course, there is our famous real estate training program, How To Buy a House for Only $150!, where we show you how to purchase any home for $150, using your deed and a typical power of attorney form signed by you as we "teach by example" the complete method for purchasing valuable real estate for a pittance. In fact, we are so convinced this course will work, we will give you $150.00 US to take it, knowing you will reward us in so many other ways when you complete the course. Sorry, no negative equities are allowed at this time.

Thanks

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address

If you PM details to any of the mods we can then take care of their user account in a rapidly terminal way...
