probably a lot. I was goign to send this guy a bucket of elephant crap, but i didnt bother wasting my time.

the mail he sent was hilarious...it said do no wire money to UK (dunno why i would), but they "closed that office down to avoid mail fraud"....it only gave me a name to wire the money to...i mean, it was retarded x15.


the problem is Gary Fischman and his **** *** classified section. If you post on m.net you're guaranteed to get about 17 of these offers.

I know someone who "bought" a Mini for 8000 and thought they were getting a great deal only to lose 8000 dollars.
It was done via Escrow, Wire Transfer etc...
Someone attempted to scam me when I was looking into purchasing a honda...he was an idiot.
