Hello Patrick

Thanks for writing. Yes I still have a brand new complete 2005 BMW
K1200RS/GT body set in pristine shape and condition just as shown in
the photo attached. I'm asking $500 USD and I will be shipping via UPS
or FedEx on a 3 - 4 working days delivery and will accept payment via
Money Gram as my PayPal is currently dormant. What's your complete
shipping address?

Many thanks again and regards,

Paul

Paul,

I fear the shipping costs from the UK will be astronomical. I'm at 4609 W. Foothill Dr Eugene Oregon 97405.

Paul,

The parts are in the UK, but the pictures you you sent were taken in the USA? They are copied from here http://www.beemerboneyard.com/46637673941cs.html and are marked SOLD for $750. Are you selling for a supplier here? My address is above.

How about you tell him I will wire you the entire amount once you have let me know what the shipping cost is. I don't want to do two transactions.

Just Go

Tell him you researched it and it's not worth 500 and offer him 400. Keep bringing the price down until you ask him to pay you.......

Re: The Money Gram Scammer: What should I Say In The Next Email?

Don't listen to these guys. Just send me the $500 and I'll take care of everything for you

Actually, I'll be sending you a money order for $1000. Go ahead and cash that, send me the $500 back in cash, then the $500 for the parts, and I'm will going to bless you with greetings from Nigerian Loto through councel of Somallia.

Re: The Money Gram Scammer: What should I Say In The Next Email?

How about something like this.

Paul--Great News! My wife just reminded me that her brother who is a detective with Scotland Yard lives very near to you in Newport Pagnell UK. He has agreed to go ahead and advance me the money so you can pick up the payment in cash directly from him as soon as tomorrow once I have the shipping information so I know how much more to ask him for to cover S&H. If this is acceptable, please let me know and I will put the two of you in contact. I really need to get moving on installation of those parts,so let me know promptly.

I think you should tell him that you have cheque drawn on a U.K. bank but it is for 2,000. If he sends the parts and $1,000 he is free to keep the change

Thanks guys, I'll drag him along with your excellent suggestions. These scammers never seem to give up even after I point out to them that it is a scam and I know it.
