write back and tell him. IF you wanna buy it Bid on it. Then call him a dumbass for trying to buy direct thru Ebay. And then report him for soliciting for sales outside of the auction.

I run the following website-

www.mautofied.com

Mautofied is a custom / modified car classified site. Much like autotrader, but everything is modified. Hence the name, mAUTOfied. Anyway, there are always people trying to pull these scams. The majority of them come from South Africa especially Nigeria. We finally installed an ISP block where no users from that particular country can log onto the site!

Anyway, what I have done in the past is go along with the scam and they send you a cashiers check. Double check with the bank that it is indeed fraud and the you have yourself a cool check to frame! LOL I have several framed and people always wonder why I have not cashed a $10,000 check and why it is framed!

Nigeria is not in South Africa, not even close
It is hard to try to sound informed when you are not.

Anyone notice how that message sounds exactly like 60% of the posts on here? I guess all fish websites are based in English speaking countries right?

I don't get on German forums even though I can speak a good bit to get by.

So what I'm saying is, the dude is indeed just a dipshit, I don't think he had to try hard to get his message like that.

If you want to show people you are un-educated, use an ebonics translator.

Thats what I get for not proofreading.. I know my geography. The way it was stated it sounds exactly the way you took it. What I meant was -- The majority of these scams come from Nigeria and South Africa.

I know exactly where Nigeria is!! Nigeria is situated at the extreme inner corner of the Gulf of Guinea on the west coast of Africa. It borders with Chad to the northeast, Cameroon to the east, Benin to the west, Niger to the northwest and by the Atlantic Ocean (Gulf of Guinea) to the south.

Thanks for being a dick to me!

None come from South Africa. All from Nigeria, England and Canada always. You keep being misinformed


Most of South Africa is fairiy prosperous, there is no noticable fraud coming from there.

I do Corporate Investigations for a 6 billion dollar bank

There was a really famous incident some time back involving a scam for a laptop on Ebay where the guy picked it for a scam and scammed the other guy back. Got people involved globally through a website. It was really slick... I can't find the link to the story right now but it was fantastic and I can't believe they pulled it off.
