He's been banned but I don't know if that keeps him from sending e-mail. We will be looking into it further. Thanks for letting us know...

Re: Is this a scam? on team camaro

I've found it best to just ignore these people and alert the "authorities". If you get back to them, then they have you in a dialogue and know for sure how to contact you. Once that's done, it's amazing what the right person can do with some software and your IP number.......

Any "money" or "check" he might send you would be 100% toiletpaper anyway. So save yourself the time and hassle.

His IP range has been banned so he shouldn't be able to view this site now.

Re: Is this a scam? on team camaro

I got the same message from the same sender. It is commonly referred to as the "Nigerian Scam". They try to get your bank account number and an authorization to deposit money directly into your account. The problem is if you give someone an authorization to deposit into your account, you are also giving them authorization to take money out!
