    I am having fun with him. Charles Turpin figured out I might be onto him, and I stopped getting my daily emails. Then I emailed him and asked if we still had a deal. He replied we did. So I started sending him emails as if we had agreed for him to purchase an item from me, and edited his previous emails copied below to support this alternate reality. He's hanging in there so far.

    Truth be told, had he not been dumb enough to try to sell someone an assault rifle (from the UK), I might have been duped.

    very interesting site and fun reads. I wonder if a person playing that game and sending so many e-mails back and forth if the scammers can find a way to hack into your computer. If not , I might send a few e-mails back to scammers just for fun

    What a hoot reading those emails ! Wish I had thought of it when I got some of those emails from the scammers a few years ago.

    Martin has offered to sell me a type 2 bag. I googled him and found a scam alert, then came here to report him. Western Union or Moneygram and 4470 phone number.

    Whew!

    Stupid Scammers

    Here is the email he sent me and below is my reply. Funny, I still haven't heard back from him!

    Great, good to hear that! Send me the items by using DHL overnight services and when they get here, I will let you know if I like them or not and send you money if I do. If I don't like them, you can send me money to ship them back. Put them in the mail right now, so I can have them as soon as possible.

    Cool Way to go Ted!

    I got an email from the same jerk(s) the other day and I received a warning from Ted today. Here we go:

    What a bunch of undesirables! I never reply to rediculous ads or emails/etc... Too many scumbags prey on the innocent of the world. They will get their just rewards, it would be nice to see it on youtube!

    Ted, thanks for keeping an eye on things! I am vigilant, but might miss one here and there. Great club, forum and people here!

    Cool Pichler Parts wanted ad in Flea Market

    Thanks Ted,
    The scammer tried to contact me also. English sounded to fishy so just e-mailed back. Did my homework also and decided not to do business when he contacts me back.
    Ted your e-mail to me even spooked me. If you hadn't pointed to the forum thread I would not have responded even to you. Your e-mail address looked fishy.
    Thanks for the warning and its nice to see a low member number. Looks like you are ahead of me by a bit.
    My number is #75950
    It never hurts to be careful!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Thanks again
    Dino
