    Fake Banker's Draft Scam? I sniff a rat, check this email out.

    I am currently selling my car on auto trader and received an email off someone (in the Isle of Skye supposedly) prepared to buy my car for the full asking price (i put ono on the ad) without even seeing it in the flesh. They will supply a bankers draft and take car of all shipping.

    Having never even seen a banker's draft I doubt this is a good idea. I researched this on the internet and found a copy of an email which was similar in tone to the one I received. The only way I can see that I can sell my car and ensure I don't get ripped off is to accompany the buyer to the bank for the cash - anyone got any other ideas to not be ripped off?

    Beware all car sellers. It would be sad to see anyone's pride and joy driven away without being paid for. Check this out:

    Hello
    Am so excited you could find to e-mail me back concerning the car you listed for sale and i will love to purchase the car from you .
    Main look at the pic at the site it's very lovely car and the condition you stated for me, someone may conclude the car is very good.
    Really this kind of car have been looking for some days now.
    Am trying to purchase the Car for myself used .
    I will be glad if you can sell the Car to me.
    I believe by now Car is SOLD to me .
    Really i want you to please send pics of the Car if available .
    Also concerning you asking price am okay with it (£4750) for the Car.
    Please as for the shipment i will handle that myself i shall contact my private shipping company to handle the shipment from you location to mine.
    Likewise,the payment will come inform of (UK BANK DRAFT) which i believe is okay.
    The payment ( uK bank draft) will take 2 to3 working days for the payment to FULLY 100% CLEARED and CONFIRM the money is your bank account, pls get back to me today so that we could conclude on the payment.And for that am not asking for your bank account and sorts codes numbers all i will need to process the payment is your NAME and your ADDRESS also with the MOBILE NUMBER ans HOME NUMBER.
    At present reside at ISLE OF SKYE HIGHLAND IN SCOTLAND and i will be glad if i can purchase the Car from you .
    Please remember that i have committed myself to purchase the Car .
    Thanks awaiting your e-mail today..
    Regards

    Does anyone else find it odd that there's 7 people in here with 2 or less posts posting very similar novel length posts?

    It goes somthing like this.

    Good Day,
    Let me start by introducing myself. I am Mr. Patrick K.W. Chan (Executive Director and Chief Financial Officer) of the Hang Seng Bank Ltd. I have an obscured business suggestion for you.
    Before the U.S and Iraqi war our client Gen. Abbas Radhi Ismail who was with the Iraqi forces and also businessman made a numbered fixed deposit for 18 calendar months, with a value of (Twenty Four million Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars only) in my branch. Upon maturity several notices was sent to him, even during the war which began in 2003. Again after the war another notification was sent and still no response came from him. We later find out that the General along with his wife and only daughter had been killed during the war in a bomb blast that hit their home.
    After further investigation it was also discovered that Gen. Abbas Radhi Ismail did not declare any next of kin in his official papers including the paper work of his bank deposit. And he also confided in me the last time he was at my office that no one except me knew of his deposit in my bank. So, Twenty Four million Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars is still lying in my bank and no one will ever come forward to claim it. What bothers me most is that according to the laws of my country at the expiration of 5 years the funds will revert to the ownership of the Hong Kong Government if nobody applies to claim the funds.
    Against this backdrop, my suggestion to you is that I will like you as a foreigner to stand as the next of kin to Gen. Abbas Radhi Ismail so that you will be able to receive his funds.
    MODALITIES:
    I want you to know that I have had everything planned out so that we shall come out successful. I have an attorney that will prepare the necessary document that will back you up as the next of kin to Gen. Abbas Radhi Ismail, all that is required from you at this stage is for you to provide me with your Full Names and Address so that the attorney can commence his job. After you have been made the next of kin, the attorney will also fill in for claims on your behalf and secure the necessary approval and letter of probate in your favor for the move of the funds to an account that will be provided by you.
    There is no risk involved at all in this matter, as we are going adopt a legalized method and the attorney will prepare all the necessary documents. Please endeavor to observe utmost discretion in all matters concerning this issue.
    Once the funds have been transferred to a nominated bank account we shall then share in the ratio of 70% for me, 30% for you. Should you be interested please send me the following:
    1. Full names
    2. Private phone/fax
    3. Current residential address
    and I will prefer you reach me on my private email address below and finally after that I shall provide you with more details of this operation.
    Your earliest response to this letter will be appreciated.
    Kind Regards
    Mr. Patrick Chan.

    I just received one too. My car is for sale on Autotrader UK

    Looks and smells like a big fat scam to me, mostly because 'Mrs Brown' is offering more money than the car is for sale for, but also she is happy to spend that amount of money never having seen or driven the car.

    Good Afternoon,
    Happy new year!!
    Thanks for your quick response and am also excited to hear from you that the vehicle is still available for sale and thanks for the information you just gave about the vehicle and am quite delighted to hear from you that the vehicle is still in great conditions.
    The reason why am purchasing this vehicle is because our family are expanding,cos we are expecting our first child.
    I want you to send me your wishes in advance before the imminent arrival of the baby.
    My self and my husband just need one additional vehicle.

    Please i want you to email me more pictures if is still available both the exterior and interior.
    Due to my condition i will not be able to view the vehicle at present because i'm heavily pregnant,and the distance as well.
    My personal circumstances do not allow me to travel,like wise my husband is away on a business trip to South Dakota in United State of America
    According to the Features of the vehicle and the Full Description of the vehicle i saw on the advert page i'm fully satisfied.

    I will make an offer of £5,700 inclusive the advert fees just because i know the worth of the vehicle and more so what you' ve stated about the vehicle details in the advert page and the maintenance of the vehicle you've spent so far since you bought the vehicle.
    Presently we are located at Belfast.

    I will take good care of the shippment I had already consult a private shipping company who are going to handle it professionally, both the shipping cost and other necessary activities concerning the shippment of the vehicle.

    Although the shipping company still have some furniture to ship for me in Ulster i have made it clear to them that your location will be their first arrival before moving down to any other destination.
    Cleared funds would have to be obtained prior to the sale.
    The money would CLEAR into your bank account before any transaction could take place.
    My preffered method of payment is by bankers draft or Cheque in a (GBP) that's the only option and safest way for me to transfer CASH which am going to instruct my business associate to post you a bankers draft via post office.

    The bankers draft is going to clear in your bank within 3 to 5 working days before i shall take the possession of the vehicle .
    I hope to hear from you today in order to proceed further with the payment and shipping arrangements as soon as possible.
    Bankers draft only required your FULL NAME and your POSTAL ADDRESS.
    I did NOT request for your bank details.

    In my next email i shall let you know the details that is required from you to enable the bankers draft gets to you by post office.
    I look forward to hear back from you today.
    Cheers
    Mrs Brown
