Here is his letter back. 

Hello Bob,Thanks for your email. Very well then $1499 it’s going to be. What is the full name, cell phone # and residential address that the Check should be made out to? Also my client would be making shipping arrangements and he would be adding the shipping fee to the Check all you have to do is send the excess to the shipper as soon as you cash the Check in your bank. I do not have the final quote from the shippers yet, but as soon as I have it I will let you know. I am located at Orlando, Florida.Kindly send me the picture of the item immediately and you will have your payment ASAP.Awaiting for  your quick response.ReplyPhillips Baker

I really don't want to give him my name.  When I get scammers, I usually have them send the bad check straight to the FBI office on Carson St in Pittsburgh, but this time I have him send it to my work building.  I tell him to send the check to my boss, his name is Haywood Jablome.  Here is what I sent him:


Hi,Sounds good, send the check to my boss,  He will take care of everything for you.  Price is $1,499.00  Make check to: Haywood Jablowme,  2600 Library Road, Pittsburgh, PA 15234,
 Pictures of the truck are on the CL link below
Thanks, Bob

Here is his reply, he is going to basically overnight me a bad, counterfit cashiers check, will have me deposit it, which will be way more than the asking price, so he will want me to send the extra money to his shipper by money order most likely:


Yes he will include the shipper fee into the payment you are to receive all you do is deduct your asking price for the vehicle the excess fund will be for the shipper without the fund there is know way the shipper can come for pickup.

Ahh, here is his big email... He is addressing the Boss Directly... If they dont get the Boss's name, you know they are from Nigeria or similar:


Hello Haywood Jablowme,How are you doing today I just got an e-mail from my client that the vehicle payment has been sent to you already that you will get it very soon. In fact you would have gotten it earlier than this except for the fact that the person issuing the funds just got married and he is on honey moon right now so they had to let the assistant issue it.  Payment will deliver by (tomorrow) Saturday close of work or Monday AM. Please do update me when you get this check Via USPS.l have to trust you here  and l don't see any big deal in doing that since we are going to be business partners l guess l can trust you with my client's money since l can trust you with my life to do business with you.  Thank you so much for the patience you have showed to me l am counting on you sorry for the inconveniences l will send you the payment details about the payment sent to you, so l will need you to do me a favor when you get the funds deduct your asking price for the vehicle and send the excess fund to the shipping agent,  immediately the money is transfer to him he will call you to notify you when he is coming for the pick up .  Sorry for the inconveniences once againWaiting to hear from you ASAPreplyPhillips Baker
