Do They think we are stupid???racer02

We have posted a few products on www.mtbr.com and have received many erroneous and scamming emails looking to purchase the products, Do they think we are that stupid,if so they better look at there game plan and review there strategies, We have included a few of the scamming and bogus emails below with the names of the email of the sender,these are just a few of the many , so as a courtesy note we are warning you of these idiots who think we are naïve.
Email from ., mailslimgee3@yahoo.com (Samuel John)
Email states : Thanks for your quick response. I am glad to know that the bike is still for sale and in good condition. I am interested in it and will offer you $1100for it, let me know if this is ok with you.

Regarding payment, I have suggested that my client residing in the states should send you a certified check of $6,500 which will carter for the cost price and for shipping.

I have an International shipping agent that will pick-up and ship the bike over to me here in Darkar and its expensive though. So, on getting the check, you are to cash it and deduct the cost price then do me a favour of sending the remaining funds meant for shipping to my International shipper via Western Union/Money gram. Immediately he
gets the funds, he will come for the pick-up.

Confirm this and send your full name, address and phone number which will be used in mailing the check payment to you via courier service.
I'll be waiting for your favourable reply.
Thanks and regards,
Samuel...
