FIT for $3240 - SCAM

NO way this is real:

http://losangeles.craigslist.org/lac/cto/947007987.html

I am requesting that everyone emails the poster (POSER) and send him the lyrics to Rick Astley's "never gonna give you up":

Were no strangers to love
You know the rules and so do i
A full commitments what Im thinking of
You wouldnt get this from any other guy

I just wanna tell you how Im feeling
Gotta make you understand

* never gonna give you up
Never gonna let you down
Never gonna run around and desert you
Never gonna make you cry
Never gonna say goodbye
Never gonna tell a lie and hurt you

Weve know each other for so long
Your hearts been aching
But youre too shy to say it
Inside we both know whats been going on
We know the game and were gonna play it

And if you ask me how Im feeling
Dont tell me youre too blind to see

(* repeat)

Give you up. give you up
Give you up, give you up
Never gonna give
Never gonna give, give you up
Never gonna give
Never gonna give, five you up

I just wanna tell you how Im feeling
Gotta make you understand

(* repeat 3 times)

hey Garm-

I don't know what's more disturbing- the false post for the fit or you knowing the lyrics to a Ric Astley song!

here is their reply after I sent the LYRIC to them (LOLZ!!)

Hello,

My 2008 Honda Fit Sport (VIN JHMGD38628S029320) is in great shape, no engine problems,damages or hidden defects. Hasn't been involved in any accident. It was always garaged and never kept outside. I`m a single mother with 2 children because I divorced with my husband and after the divorce I own this car. I really don`t need it and have bad memories about it and that`s why I'm selling it so cheap. The car has a clear title, no liens. Transmission is Automatic and has only 4,900 miles. The total price is $3,240 including shipping and handling. I am located in Miami, Florida. I'm very busy with my job and I'm often out of town so I can't meet in person with you and this is the reason why I opted to sell my car over the internet. In order to secure the delivery of the vehicle I've applied for the services of a local shipping company that will handle the delivery and will hold the money until you receive, inspect and accept the vehicle. It can be delivered anywhere in the US (delivery included in the sale price).
The car is now at their warehouse and has been inspected by them before being accepted for shipping. Delivery takes around 3-4 days depending on your exact location. Please let me know if you're interested so I can provide you with further details.


Thank you,
Donna Higgins

Wow, they even got a template response, if it was real they probably would have mentioned something about the song lyrics. Considering they gave a VIN, it's either a scam or a joke on somebody else.

I've been playing with them. Got the "shipping company" involved too.

Did a WHOIS on the domain names, came up with interesting information. Fun!

Are you telling me I shouldn't have sent over a certified check from a business partner worth $10k more than they are asking for the car? My partner said that they can keep the extra money for their troubles. Oh no!



Hello [seller name],
Thanks for your mail and understanding and will want payment to be asap. i will go about payment by instructing my client in the states to issue you a certified cashier check of $13,500 and this should take care of all expences in this transaction, what you will do once you have recieved the check ,is to cash it, and deduct your own money($3500) and the wiring charges and wire the balance to my international shipping agent through western union transfer. Once he recieves the balance,he will come over to your location in the very next day for pick up of the 2008 Honda Fit, now the money wired to the shipper is his fees for his services, transportation to your location and back to me, also for all charges that may arise along this transaction cos i will want the good to be delivered to me safe and sound without problems, i shall send you my shipper address as soon as i contact him.All what i need from you now is to mail me with you details below...
YOUR FULL NAME..........(on check)
YOUR CONTACT ADDRESS....
YOUR STATE AND ZIPCODE.......
YOUR COUNTRY.......
YOUR PHONE NUMBER..........(both mobile and landphone number)
Do get back to me asap with this details for payment to be made out to you immediately,so that i can forward it to my client who will issue out payment on my behalf to you the, let me know asap if you are still intrested so that we could seal this transaction on time.
Regards,
Mr. Scammer







lol. I wonder if any scammers tried to scam the original scammers....
