Possible Heist

Ok, so I got in one of those UK emails... in fact it reads:


--------------------------------------------------------------

Am NAOMI ROBBIN.i live in united kingdom. i was introduce this site by a friend of mine.cause am in need of 1994 Chevy Pickup, z71 - $4700.and tell me your asking price and your full detail because i love 1994 Chevy Pickup, z71,so much if you can give me a chance to purchase the car i will appreciate that from you.

BEST REGARD...
NAOMI ROBBIN..
----------------------------------------------------------------


So I'm thinking, why not have fun? And I sent this response back:
-----------------------------
Hi,

Iím glad you wrote me, the truck is a 1994 chevy ex cab with a chevy 350 motor in it (the best v-8 ever made). The good thing about you living in the uk is you wonít have to go through the hassle of American titling and registration, I can simply ship it to you and we are done. I could even offer you a price break since I wonít have to do any paperwork to register the vehicle in the us, lets say, $4,200 US.

Naomi is a beautiful name, Iím curious what a girl from the UK would want with a truck like this, I pictured some cowboy hat wearing ranch hand buying it, not an exotic flower from a far away land, do you have any pictures of yourself? Iím sorry I should not be so upfront, you probably have a husband keeping you happy right now..

Anyways, what do you think about the vehicle, does it sound like something your interested in?

------------------------------------

Well, I got this response back:

---------------------------------


Thanks for the response and admiring my name,Well i will make the payment to you and am going to handle the shipper my self..... Kindly give me your full details,thats your(Name, address and phone#).Hope to hear from you.
Thanks
Best regard
Naomi Robbin

----------------------------------------


Now, obviously this is a scammer thats not what is in question, what IS in question, is how could I respond back at this point? I'm out of ideas what what do you all think?

Tell him/her that once she recieves the truck to ignore the blood stains in the bed of the truck. And that it's Nigerian blood, so it should wash off easily.

No?

Inform her that your email, and all other info is an alias, and you need her to have the truck shipped ( with you in it ) ASAP, or " the man " will have a field day with you.

she asked for your name and number, you should do the same and check it out to see if it is legit. Let's see how far you can carried this game or is it really a game or someone is serious? If she is serious and every checks out to be her then money deposit is in question. Will she deposit it or not, is the question.

i totally like the one about the smuggling bit.

imo, you should find some investigative agency, and let them use you as a decoy to catch them. pawnage!

I would go and open a free account at woodforest and then put 5 bucks.
Tell her you have an account number for the deposit of funds and you have many thousands so her piddly amount wont even make a drop. See what happens next I guess.
