Prout Manta 39 SCAM

The dumb way they write these things is by design. For instance, the part about shipping. Anyone getting past that email is obviously a winner in the scam book.

Besides attracting prospects, Ads should discourage the people you donít want waiting your time.

Re: Prout Manta 39 SCAM

Here's a Snowgoose for $7000. Could this be Aby again?

I forgot to congratulate Clamdigger for getting the boat deleted from SL again.

Re: Prout Manta 39 SCAM

I had a variation of the same thing (let eBay sell your plane for a guaranteed price) happen with a airplane I have listed for sale (not on Craigslist) a couple of weeks ago. I just told the guy I wasnít interested.

Maybe you can start sending them to other scammers as deposits.

Re: Prout Manta 39 SCAM

Props to everyone on here! Hopefully all these chats become Google indexed and help some folks out.

Let's connect those scammers to each other! Stoked on that idea.

Re: Prout Manta 39 SCAM

It is Google indexed, hence here I am ��

Anybody want to help with my reply to Aby?
I could pay in gold? Receive at a PO Box in Narnia? Anyone care to send him his own check as a deposit?
