I have a canoe for sale on a website, had a email from a buyer wishing to buy the canoe.
This is the email i had from him.
How are you doing, Hope everything is going on fine,
As a matter of fact the check has been sent out to you (it will arrive by mail).
The check was sent to,(name,,,,
address,,,,. So the payment should arrive in a short while from now. And once you get it,i guess you know how to handle everything, and please don't bother about any other buyer for the Canoe but there
has been a new development.. I have included the pick up agents fee to yours,
making it £2,000 cause i am traveling out of town today because of my
pregnant wife who is on business trip and she is about to deliver a baby so i
have to go and stay with her, so i will be back very soon. I included the
pickup agent fee because he is bringing down some other items for me from other country
so when you have the check deduct your own fee and have the remaining money
sent to him through western union money transfer immediately after cashing it so that he can come for the pick up at your place . I am buying the item, as a surprise to my wife
and i want it in my home before my arrival .So when you have the check, take it
to your bank and have it cashed immediately,and another £100 for your self
for running the errand and the in conveniences. please mail me ASAP so as to let
me know i can trust you handle this with care.
Thanks for your trust and understanding in this transaction.
i think this is a scam, what should i do?
