Default Does anyone want money to but a fleet of Model A's

I thought I would share my good fortune in this holiday season. I just received a formal looking cashiers check for $4600 to assist me in paying for the fees and processing charges to receive $250,000 from GLOBAL FINANCIAL SERVICES.
I just have to mail $4000 to them.
Do you think its legit?
If so I can forward it TO YOU to get rich.
Happy New Year

Turn it into the post office as a scam. They then send them to the proper authorities.

I bet that cashiers check isn't worth the paper it's printed on. Just for HaHa's, try and cash it.

These scams are going around like California wildfires. I got two emails from gmail addresses regarding adds I have on the MAFCA website. Below are tow of them.

From Paul Owen powen224@gmail.com:
Okay I'll take it and will offer $400 and will proceed straight with
cashier's check which will clear instant or the next day to avoid
delays, I am located in ALASKA, i will handle the shipment once the
check as cleared your bank and funds have been made available to you,
the shipper broker will come over to your location to pick up and have
it delivered safely to me at my residential.


Please email me back the following details below to issue out the check to you.

Full Name that will be on the check
Full Address to send the check to
Cell phone number
Waiting to read from you.

From Brian & Brook Wolfe brook.wolfe@gmail.com:
Thanks for the mail.I will arrange for the
shipping as soon as we seal this transaction. Do you accept
check? If yes, get back to me with the below
information.
Name on
the check,Address with zip
code,City,State,
and Contact phone number.
I want you to know that the shipping
arrangement will take place after the check has
cleared.
I hope to
read back from you soonest.

If they were smart, they would ask for 400 in fees and processing, and more people would jump at that. Everybody except a complete moron would know it does not cost 4000 to process anything.

I have inherited 500,000 from my sultan uncle and need to get it out of the country. I will give you 50,000 if you will help. Just send me 10,000 to pay the authorities and i will send you the balance.

P T Barnum said "a fool and his money are soon parted". He also said" there is a sucker born every minute". I dont think he was referring to piglets.

Had one several years ago that said after I paid the transfer fee or something like that I would get an ATM card with a 2 million dollar balance that I could use to withdraw the funds. Lets see... at a $250.00 a day limit on ATM withdrawals it would take me just about 22 years to get it all out.

When you receive the $250,000: I would consider selling my fleet of (5) Model A's, may throw in some spare parts too. We can discuss delivery! . Jeff

I advertised a six figure car on Hemmings and got a response from a person with a middle eastern surname. Sent a very sarcastic email saying that the extra cash would be in a brown paper bag under the spare.

Received a terse email back that they were serious and asked me to pick up the buyer and agent at the Durango airport.

Sold the car and apologized profusely.

You just never know.

I advertised a 30 Roadster on Craig’s list in July 2012. I was contacted by an interested party in NY who wanted to buy the vehicle. I played him a while and he stated that he purchased vehicles and shipped them to Europe. I asked him to give me the name and phone numbers of the last 7 vehicles he purchased. He sent me the info and I contacted 6 of the individuals and the guy was straight up, he will via wire transfer deposit $1,000 within in 24 hours the remainder in 7 days and a carrier will arrive on a set date to transport the vehicle.

I sent him my routing number and account number after confirming with my credit union that they could deposit and not withdraw, he made the deposits via wire transfer. I sent him a bill of sale and put the signed title in the vehicle.

I got my $$$ and he had a carrier pick up the roadster who transported it to CA for shipping to France.
