Got this one just today! These people just don't give up!

She must think I'm "FRIED...MAN"!!!

Dear John,
I am happy to notify you that I am interested in buying/acquiring
your Santa Cruz Bullit and I am offering $1,850
Please,if my offer is acceptable to you, get back to me with
the necessary details and also how it will be picked up. I will
be needing:
* your full name and home address together with
* your reconfirmed phone number (both home and mobile), and
* fax number (if possible).
As a matter of fact, one of my clients
based in U.S.A is owing me some money and the amount is $7,000
and on my request he shall forward an american cashier check on that
amount to
you.
After deducting the cost of your goods,then i will like to know if i
can trust you to send the
rest of the amount (i.e the excess fund) to me through money gram
transfer or money net transfer. If you are ok with this favour,you
can get me the information needed to send the cashier check to
you.
thank you for your cooperation while anticipating your earliest
response.
Best regards,
Jill.

If you haven't done so, you might want to report this to the police. They may not be able to do much about it, but I work in check fraud for a large bank and always advise victims/potential victims of this type of fee advance fraud to report. This scam is getting more and more prevalent, and if enough reports tie together they might have enough to do something with it.

Also, there may very well be a "real" Jill Friedman who is an unfortunate victim of identity theft and may not even know it. Usually these frauds are multi-layered.
