Default Silly scammers.....

So I called about a Ski Doo modular 2 helmet I found on craigslist on Monday. The listing says he was in aubur hills .....anyhow, the owner wants me to send a post office check and he will ship me the helmet. I said I wanted send funds through paypal.

So he proceeds to tell me that he does not have a paypal but his Nigerian buddy does and he will check with him to see if he could use it.

Well he just called me back and told me that he talked to his buddy and he said that he has no idea how to get money out of his paypal account... and that he just leaves all of his money in there to conduct his online transactions. So if I wanted the helmet that I needed to send him a check. Let me tell ya, I was born in the day, but not yesterday!

I told him thanks and I would let him know. I am not gonna drive 4 hours each way to save 60 bucks on a used helmet over a brand new one on ebay....oh well

I went in my bank to wire a rather large sum of money. When the guy asked where I would be sending it I told him I was helping out some people in Nigeria. He just about choked. I thought I was being funny but he didn't. He said you wouldn't believe how often people fall for that crap. I still think I was funny!
