Buyer BEWARE!! Hi Everybody,
    The only basic difference between this example and the previous one is that the scammer is probably going to wait until his THIRD contact before he asks YOU to send any money anywhere. He expresses an interest in your ad, and wants to buy your item even though it seems he knows very little about what you are selling. He will eventually send you a very good forged cashier's check or money order for considerably more than you are asking. It will initially clear your bank!! He will eventually ask you to mail the difference in the amounts to his "shipper". You figure you have nothing to lose because you already have the money for your tractor and you still have the tractor until the shipper comes to get it. Then the check bounces, then you're left holding the bag.
   Here's how his one looks. It's another answer to the same ad that Gene placed:

Notice that the email is usually written in poor English with very poor punctuation. In this case the scammer DID fill in the name of the item in his own "form letter". So, Gene answered like this, purposely pasting in that sentence the same way, along with an absurd claim telling how long Gene has been using the machine.

   The next contact you get from them they begin to lay the groundwork to eventually explain how THEY end up getting money from YOU... This is what this scammer replied...

See the similarity - the broken English. He accepts Gene's information and goes on with his explanation of what will happen next. He hints that there will be a shipper. He'll send more than enough money and he'll ask Gene to send the extra money to a "shipper". After that, NOTHING happens; NO shipper ever comes; the cashier's check bounces, and Gene would be out whatever money he sends.

These emails can come from ANYBODY, claiming to be from ANY country... We have one more example. This one came from Jeff, who used our ad page. Jeff went so far as to actually RECEIVE the scammer's check!... Take a look right here.
        I'm sure they have more than ONE scheme, so if you see ANYTHING fishy.. DON'T fall for it.
