Scam Details This was his response to my Craigslist ad for a motorcycle for sale,
Hi How are you today? Hope you are great. My client and I are based in England. My client informed me that the bike would be shipped along with other properties he purchased to his Son who resides in Mexico. He is buying it to present as a gift to his son whom he missed his graduation ceremony because of his health condition.
I am okay with the price and without further negotiations. Payment will get to you in a cashier check of $6,000; this amount is expected to cover both the shipping and any other expenses that might incur in the course of this transaction.
So you are required to deduct the cost of your bike$3,500 when payment is received and give the balance of $2,500 to the shipper for him to be able to offset shipping fees, tax / other charges and cosmetic repair costs. Upon receiving your payment and balance sent down to the shipper, the shipping agent will come for pick up (of bike & signing of title papers), and drive to the prepaid shipper.
Please confirm this whole arrangement and provide the details below for check payment to be delivered to you.
PAYMENT INFORMATION:
1. LEGAL NAME IN FULL.........
2. FULL ADDRESS..........
3. PHONE NUMBER (S).................
NOTE: Payment will be sent to you right away once you forward your information. Secondly my client is making arrangement to know whom to use as the shipping agent who will come for the pickup and shipment of the bike. When you receive the check, my client nominated agent will come over to your location for pickup and shipment.
Thanks for your time, effort and anticipated cooperation. Regards
