Help!!!

I'm currently invloved in a deal with another member for an ad that recently posted not too long ago, and the seller has a 67 SS 396 cherry condition, the ad has since dissapeared and the seller has told me the car is in the UK and wants $3,000 prior to shipping the car then after recieving the car another $3,000. A 67 SS in cherry condition for only 6K? Am I getting scammed? Is there any way to make sure it isn't a scam?

Re: Help!!!

Big scam. Don't walk, run from this deal. Don't send this scumbag a nickel. I believe the ad was pulled by the Mods to protect our less informed members. I hope you didn't send this POS any money! Good Luck. Mike

Total Scam

I'll bet you will see a similar email posted there. The ad was removed asap.

Re: Help!!!

I believe the ad was in the free classifieds and I don't think you need to be a member to place ad there...? Bonzo Hanson was stringing the scammer along a week or so ago too......it was kinda fun for a few days..

...38 Chev coupe, street rod
...54 Chev 210 coupe
...62 Impala SS, driver/project
...67 Camaro, ss/rs LA built driver/project
...66 Chevelle SS, Atlanta built 138 driver/project
...69 C10, cab and clip may end up on the '89 rollback
...70 Chevelle SS, Canadian documented Z25 project

Re: Help!!!

It's almost the exact same scam that I called on 2 days ago:

http://sfbay.listpic.com/eby/car/279857523.html

It was a Craigslist ad. The posting was flagged my the CL community, but I saved the info. I decided to see what would happen, all along I knew it was a scam:

I sent the seller an email
He could hardly speak English (sounded East Asian / Pkastani )
When it got down to it, I couldn't go see the car because it was in Europe
When I asked where in Europe, he said it was in the UK

He said he was selling it so cheap because people over in Europe don't like these cars ( I was unaware of that ) and if I gave him $3000 upfront he would ship the car and I could pay the balance when it arrives.

Maybe there should be a charge to anyone who wants to advertise on the free classifieds if they are not a member... that way the Admins can at least have some information on people if they try to scam. It might also deter the scum.

"The masses have never thirsted after truth. They turn aside from evidence that is not to their taste, preferring to deify error, if error seduce them. Whoever can supply them with illusions is easily their master; whoever attempts to destroy their illusions is always their victim." - Gustave Le Bon
