Last weekend I received what appeared to be a legitimate inquiry re the sale of my 2003 540 that has been posted on Roadfly. Yesterday I received the post below. I guess this dude figures people will not try to cash his bogus "cashier's check" before sending him back a check for the balance. Thought everyone would want to know this. Cheers.

Hello ,
Thanks for your reply . After your mail I got in touch with my client on the details of your reply to our enquiry on the vehicle's condition at the AD and evaluation of your ad it is satifactory to him.
He really commended your vehicle from its features in the advert and has instructed me to carry on with the sales at the price of $21250 without negotiating further,since the vehicle is still for sale and in good condition as described by the advert.
I am therefore happy to tell you that I have concluded w ith my client and he has instructed me to carry on with the transaction, He said I should let you know that payment will get to you in a cashiers check of $27,250 which is a refund payment of a cancelled order earlier made by him.
Due to companys policy this payment has to be made out in this amount to you ,because company policy only allows a refund payment on one cashiers check,this amount is expected to in part cover both the shipping and any other expences that might accrue in the course of this transaction ,so you are required to deduct the cost of your vehicle which is $21250 when payment gets to you and refund balance which is $6000 to my client's shipper,who will come for inspection/pickup for him to be able to offset shipping & tax charges, and other cosmetic repair costs.
After payment has reached you and balance sent to shipper, the shipper's agent will come for inspection, pick up
(of vehicle & signing of title papers).
Confirm this and forward your....

LEGAL NAMES.....

ADDRESS.......

PHONE NUMBER
For payment to be made out to you as soon as possible.
All oth er information needed in completion of this transaction will be given to you in due course.
Your honesty, understanding and co-operation will be highly appreciated. ,

Respectfully,

Mr richard
