    Quoted from lordnorth:

    I am a Chief Engineer as my position on the sea here

    Oh, he's a sea captain!? Why didn't he just say that in the first place? This is a totally legit offer.

    At this point offer to pay the "agent" with a check. I collect checkbooks from closed accounts. Some with no names on them and banks that have been long-gone. The most it costs is a few bucks for an air mail stamp.

    Quoted from lordnorth:

    I know I said I would leave it alone... but just to give you the final update. The other shoe did drop. I finally got the "catch" email:
    Ok thanks,i just want to know more about it to make sure its in good condition so can you assure me i will not be disappointed???And also ,I need to inform you about this,just received an email from my pick agent...am most sure i did not include that in my previous email,They said they won't come for the pick up unless i pay him the agent commission fee first in order to be able to schedule a pick up time.I am a Chief Engineer as my position on the sea here,I am so busy and can not pay the agent fees from here as they Requested that i pay them with Money Gram.So what i will do here is that i will send the payment in the total amount of $3,500.So once you receive the confirmation of the payment from PayPal,you will deduct the promised amount for the good which is $2,700 and the remaining $800 will be send down to my agent By Money Gram.I have tried to paid it direct here but there is no Money Gram on the ship and am not here with my credit card to do it here online,So i believe you can handle this for me.
    Took them awhile, but they finally got around to it. And that, my friends, is the end of this story.

    Not the end, tell them no problem..... and once they send the paypal money, THEN tell them you need to wait 90 days for the funds to clear....

    I love it. It is kinda fun to play with scammers. I might have to post a ridiculous ad just to have some fun. For the guys here to know it's fake.....I'll accept wire transfers, and use the words "regards", "will like to ship" and "I believe in trust"

    Everyone cool with that? LOL
