Yes, that is a scam. Ignore it.

The deal is they issue you a counterfeit check for more than the actual amount. Then you send them the item (your truck in this case) and the extra money. Later, the check comes back as invalid.

You'd lose the $4K, and possibly, your truck.

Please I want to know if you can shipp to Europe as my shipping agent will
handle the shipping arrangement on my behalf after the payment has been

Also,I will like to know if you will accept a Certified Cashier check or
Money Order drawn from the American bank.

If that is okay by you,please get back to me as soon as possible.

This is how I've been responding to these jokers.

This transaction will be in cash only. I am taking the neccessary precautions
due to the risks involved in foreign transactions. If this is a legitimate
offer your agent can come and inspect the vehicle. At the time that he or she
feels comfortable with the quality of the vehicle the transaction will be made.
After payment in US currency (cash only) NO CHECKS OR MONEY ORDERS has been
satisfied the title and paperwork will be transferred and your agent and he or
she will be responsible for the removal of the vehicle. If your intentions are
otherwise such as to defraud by use of an an advance fraud sceme then this
entire conversation will be turned over to the Dallas office of the Secret
Service. Their telephone number is 972-868-3200 for future reference.
Additionally If any illegitimate solicitation arrives by US mail I will
contact the United States Postal Service for further action.

Yes , I have gotten 2 of these emails. first guy says his name was Joseph Carberry and the second guy said His name was Galmen Daniel.
Yeah old Joseph J Carrbury,
Hows this sonud? Familiar.
My regards to you and your family..
Yeah his shipping agent my ass. we got the check for 3k via ups. It looked legit as hell we had already contacted the local authorities and they put us in contact with the FBI here in Fl.
The Fbi had us cash the check and hold the 3k til we got info back from the bank it was written on. The check was fake of course. I kept all emails and other correspondance between Joseph and Myself. The check is Real enough looking because it is copied from a real check that they bought and they use the routing numbers and account numbers to remake the chacks on check paper purchasable at any office supply store. The reason I was told to cash the check is that it becomes a different set of charges when the check is cashed then when it is actually sent and written. It becomes interstate check fraud. The feds are looking into these guys. The check was sent from Victoria Island Nigeria from a David Martins. The Feds are trying to find out who these guys are. the problem they have is the authorities in Africa are less than sympathetic to our problem..
Yeah its trash of course it is. What did P.T. Barnum say? ther'es a sucker born every minute..
If it's too good to be true then it isn't. Common sense say's scam so trash these emails and be done with it

Yes it is a scam, heres the one I got:
Hi.

Thanks for the timely response.I am at the moment supervising my new filling station in Canada,I would have my shippier handle the shipping on my behalf.A check in the amount of $14,485 will be sent to you and you'll deduct cost of your Car $6,500 and you'll send the excess ($7,985) to my shipper to enable prompt shipping of the Car.

My pick up agent will be the one to take care of all the necessary paper works.I will be expecting the name and address you'll want the check issued with and also your phone #.

Waiting to hear from you,

Mike.

Luckly my bank caught the counterfeit cashiers check because I had never heard of this scam before. Thank God this butt head didn't get his hands on my truck and yes I have turned him in. He went by the name of Michael Harry and Martin Adams. So be careful, don't trust this kind of email.
