The same guy is trying to buy a kite from me- sounded suspicious from the get go- the general wording was off, the way he didn't ask about the kite, it was a present for his son. His "wife" was going to send a check- the best part was he was trying to bargain me down-

You can usually tell a scammer from the get go unless they have the stoke its easy to see-

Thanks for the heads up, I was putting him off waiting for a reply-

Me too - Michael Bulmer, same story as you said. He sounded legit too - kite for his son. He claimed to have a Fedex account so he was going to send for pickup of the kite. Supposedly the check was mailed, and he has inquired about it, but no word from him in a few days. Oddly enough, when his communications became sporadic I suggested that he call me and he DID! Seemed legit. Sellers beware.

same dude maybe who contacted me via facebook.
I had some other e mail like it, total fraud.
One time I replied and almost fell for it.
But I never gave out any personal info.
Just delete it!
