Red face Lol

Long time have i seen those ever since i got in the market for a Supra.. man and well i didn't have anyone else advice but what i did Do was Google it... Google will search the whole net for any reports on the supra and the Story there was a site i stumbled upon and it had various postings of scams and the people who fell for them and the amount they lost... i guess they are trying to track the Person (people) responsible for it.. honestly if they find him/her.... i can only imagine.

best way to check for scams is to Research.. and as a 20year old i can honestly say ... all i need is a slight amount of proof to drop the bait. then again i go by many old phrases and sayings. " if it's to good to be true, it probably is"

but hey some people say i got an old soul so, it may not apply to all kids

Default Scams by Scums

I told one of these guys to open an escrow to transfer title at the Chartered Bank of London and have them contact me. It's fun to hear the bullshit reasons they come up with as to why they cannot comply with sensible suggestions.

The internet cafes in Lagos, Nigeria are full of these losers. They do, however, have a degree of entertainment value. Many people enjoy "playing" them.

Oh boy, I can't believe some people still fall for the same old scams. I guess it just comes down to what one guy said earlier on, about being young, having the cash burning a hole & wanting a Supra more than anything.

You can ALWAYS tell these scams though, simply by the godawful grasp of the English language that the "seller" has i.e. "payment will be done also in here" or "We can talk upon the time about the price but i think i choose the right one" or even "The car is registered in United States and it has clear title.You will get from me the keys the title and all documents to register the car in US," (These examples all being from one single scam!)

That last one cracks me up, it's registered in the United States & you will get the documents to register it in the U.S. Where's the U.S. when it's at home, U.(nder the) S.(ea)?

It's a shame that the companies used to facilitate these arsehole's scams don't do more to protect people & it begs the question (especially with the obvious damage scams do to their reputation) if they, or more specifically whoever actually owns/runs these companies, are getting something out of it themselves.

For example could Square-whateverit'scalled or others be run in the U.S. but be owned/managed from an office in say, Nigeria, where the main man not only collects his legitimate salary from the legit. side of his business (and keeps the authorities happy/their backs turned, over there by donating large percentages of this "clean" money to worthy causes etc.) whilst also collecting a share of the odd 5k/3k/1.5k cheques/drafts that his friends "Jason" and "Dave" et-al procure from the poor, trusting individuals who just wanted a bargain supercar?

Conspiracy theory I know, but the amount of "effort" these companies devote to stopping/catching scammers compared to what their policies say really does make me think. Maybe it should make you think too?

OMG! Hommer's selling his car?!?! He's definitely got an odd sense of how things should be done... he is/was a regular over a supramania. Wow, I'm stunned, I never thought he'd throw in the towel.
