    He isn't after your car...he's after your bank details...once he has them he'll rinse your account. They only target owners of premium manufacturers cars, tell him to sling his hook.

    Have seen this in the US, especially on craigslist. They say sending you a check for the full amount.
    Problem is when you get it, the check is actually stolen from a company or other person. If you cash
    it the burden of repayment is yours.
    I have also seen where you send pics and info that they use like they are selling it. People send money
    for a car these individuals don't even have.

    The scammers can't withdraw money from your account even with the sort code and account number.
    Any replies like these I return a nice photo of a girl with big tits, one actually replied and said "Thanks"

    Call me politically correct brigade/loony leftie and what have you, but this thread should be deleted. The ignorance displayed and racist stereotyping of asians and nigerians is staggering and the fact that i get posts moderated and "****" starred out whilst stinky racism has lingered for a couple of years as a sticky post is just daft.
