    Helllo Cody,
    I would like you to get back to me with a valid phone number that i can reach you on and regarding the shipping, i have a prepaid shipper who will take care of the shippment of the purchase from your location,and the check that will vbe sent to you will be for $4200 from a client who owes me a refund due to some back orders,so when you get the payment, you will be required to deduct the cost of your purchase and then forward the balance to my prepaid shipper who will carry out the shipping and prepare the documents for the shippments becasue i have someother items i will be shipping along side the purchase from winnipeg before coming to you location in Ontario.
    So please feel free to ask me any questions you have in regards to these transaction.

    N.B: Hope i can trust you with my prepaid shipper’s funds

    Bernard..

    I dont know if this seems like a logical plan…any suggestions?

    Don’t do it
    I’ve seen scams like this before. You cash the cheque, send the difference back to the buyer, and then your bank calls you a week later and tells you the cheque was no good.
    Ask for a bank draft or money order only. This deal sounds way too complicated to be legit.

    Don’t be fooled. It is a scam. Do the shipping and payment on YOUR terms. Anyone who makes the transaction seem so complex is full of sh*&. Save your money and sell to someone else… and DON’T give them your phone#. I had about 4 or 5 identical offers when I was selling my boat this past spring. It is a pretty common attempt to rip you off.

    Yes….that is the oldest scam in the book. You end up out your boat and the difference in cash.

    You could tell them to send the cheque and mail them a picture of your butt instead of the boat. That’s probably what I would do. :roll:
