No such inference whatsoever. On the contrary, I'm sure your assistance to ulflei proved invaluable - toads must get their just desserts.
I did wonder if these correlated to the 'infamous' 15" monos being discussed here & on other forums, before your purchase was even made.
I recall their starting price then was @ $1200

I would let ULF respond to it...send him the info he emailed you...ask for a number as well. Good to know you found him on here before anything.

Yea, tell him it's a cash only deal, and you'll meet him in the Uniondale Police station to complete the purchase.

I wonder how long this guys been pulling this stuff? He certainly doesn't seem to care at all that he's about to get snagged for the wheels on this thead.

Ya gotta beleive he's reading this thread, and still he doesn't care, and hasn't stopped.

I still think he has a drug habit to support...

Meeting on the Uniondale police station is funny.
I'm not sure if he reads here,when I checked his Id, the last time he was locked in was 6/7/09 at 12.13 PM,but he could read here without logging in.
Somebody else dropped me a E-mail that some time ago he tried to buy a Mercedes from him but he wanted that financed from the seller,needless to say the deal never finalized.
At that time he worked at Rally Motors in Roslyn, NY
I gave that address as the possible working address to the Detektive.

Woo Hoo!
I see our friend has been banned.
And hopefully is being questioned by the police.
It's bad enough he scams one of us, but then keeps right on going...
Hopefully they will be able to compile enough on all of this to warrant felony charges!

Yes it began when this thief sent me a series of PM's ( through Benzworld) regarding the purchase of my 16V and the creative financing he proposed. The way it went was that my car was advertised for 5K. and the individual offered me 6k, but only if I would agree to provide the financing. He claimed that he would give me 1K up front and $500 per month 'til he would pay the car off.

Then the name dropping ensued. Some of the individual's co-workers happened to be business acquiantances and a personal friend known to me when I was still turning wrenches full-time. But I strictly believe in cash-and carry so he had no chance; especially on 20yr old car.

This technique of thievery is certainly not new; but unfortunately will work on at least 1 out of 10 individuals, maybe more.

I had a guy try to do that when I was selling my T/A - He told me he would give me my asking price if I would take $500 down and let him pay me $250 a month. I told him that would be no problem, give me $750 and I would pull it off the market and hold it for him until it was completely paid for. I also told him I was going to draw up a bill of sale with terms, one of them being if he missed ONE payment the deal was cancelled and I keep the money. He said he wasn't going to do it. This nimrod actually thought that for $750 I was going to give him the title and let him have the car!! I laughed at him and asked him if he thought I was stupid, that if he wanted the car he should go to the bank and get a loan with them.
I wonder if he was related to this schmuck?

Hi,
i just received an Postal Money Order from Stuart per overnight express.
No letter or explanation just the money order.
i will inform the Sheriffs office that I received the money and see what they like me to do now.
The report to the internet crime complain center once filed can not be retrieved,I warned him several times per E-mail what action I will take,so they will investigate.
I thank all members here for supporting me and help to gather information what finally led to the recovery of the money.
It also should be a warning to understand how Paypal works and how easy it is to try to scam somebody.
