Scams

It is sad that this is occurring on our classifieds:
Thanks for the prompt response.I am a marine engineer and at this moment i am presently working offshore,i am OK with the price and i will love to make an instant purchase, I am located in Weslaco, TX.so please do withdraw the advert from the site.I don't mind adding an extra $20 dollars for you to take the advert down from the site so that i can be rest assured that am in hand of the item ,I am buying the item as a gift for my brother, I want to surprise him. I don't have access to my bank account on-line as i don't have internet banking,but i have my bank account attached to my PayPal account and this is why i insisted on paying you through PayPal, kindly get back to me with your PayPal details if you don't have PayPal account yet,it is very easy to set up at your bank and get it set up,after you have set it up i will only need the e-mail address you use for registration with PayPal so as to put the money through so i can proceed with the payment and after the payment has been done, i have a pick up agent that will come around for verifications and to pick the item after i have made the payments for the item .So I will need you to provide me with the following information to facilitate the making of the payment

.1.Your PayPal full name.
2.Your PayPal Email Address.
3..Your phone number.

I swear, there must be a "Barbizon School of Scam Writing" somewhere. They all sound the same, right down to the misuse of grammar...

We have little control over the actions of people OTHER than our ability to terminate the accounts of people who attempt scams like this.

If you're selling something and receive a solicitation like this, forward the entire email to classifieds@airforums.com. We'll find and terminate the account in question.

Always apply the useful skepticism you've used here and don't respond to the scammers, but we need to know who's signed up for AIRForums and sending out scam emails to classifieds sellers.
