Scam artist

Forum Mod,

A new member by the name of "relly" sent me this PM:

Hello

I am interested in buying the M5 titanium exhaust that you have placed for sell now, and I would want to enquire about the present condition of the above mentioned, as well as some detail about you. I expect this timely enough.

As for the payment, I would need you to get back in touch with the last asking price as I will be paying with a certified cheque.

Lastly, please forward to me your full company's (or house address, telephone and fax) details as I will subsequently prefer reaching you through these facilities.

Yours interestingly,

Raymond Griffiths

He supposedly is from Morgantown, PA, but his writing style Nigeria. Please get rid of this clown.

Regards,
Randy

The writing style is always an immediate red flag. It has that broken british, learned from a textbook, trying to sound really smart, nonsense ring to it. I especially love the 'give me all your info' line.

No question-scammer! Tell him that u are a little suspicious of his unusual request and is it ok to send his info to US Inspector General Office/ Mail/Internet Fraud Division and see what he says.

Moved him to limbo for the time being. He'll have to email to get some help, and we may find out a bit more.
