I'm selling one of my extra dinghy's and here is an example of one of these scammers.

I read about some folks who try to have a bit of fun with the spammers. They would send a reply something like this.

Hi Ade,

Thanks for being interested. It really is a great dinghy and I want it to go to a good home. Where will you be keeping it? I want it to be in a place with good clean water. Could you send me a picture of the harbor?

Also, I'm sure you understand that I'm a bit nervous that I do not know anything about you. Could you send me a picture of yourself? I understand that you aren't in the states. What country are you in? What is your business? I might want you to do some other business with you. Would you be able to get a good price on a Garmin chartplotter wherever you are?

Thanks for your interest. I really think you'll love the dinghy.

Then - if he replies - ask him to send a picture of himself standing in front of a landmark where-ever he says he is. The fellow in the article actually got a spammer to go to a certain square at a certain time in Nigeria and wave at a certain netcam.

Obviously, you want to use a disposable email address for this. And if you have enough time to do it, you aren't sailing enough
