Got this message this morning in response to an ad I have selling my @

Hello Dear Seller, Am John Lewis, I Am highly interested in your above mentioned products for sale. The current condition of the product! If it is still for sale and your last selling price! !Your quick response to this mail will be highly appreciated? Best Regards. John.
My "quick response" was polite:

Price remains as advertised. The condition is best seen for yourself. It is located in Ireland.
I have nibbled on the bait... I'm waiting now for poor "John Lewis" to figure out what product he was "bidding" on, and offer me a deal that is too good to be true.

I'm thinking its a credit transfer thing. Anyone ever got similar? It sounded way too generic to me.:rolleyes:

You'd be much better off if my African prince of an uncle bought your items, he is also looking for a new heir, and may just give you £100,000,000 if you are lucky.
Send me all your credit card details, name and address and I'll forward them to him.



:p
