MERLIN ROCKET FORUM

Topic : Scamming sales enquiry ?

I had a bizarre enquiry from the Sales section of the forum yesterday.
 
"Send me the photo and the price" and then an email address  w ph ilip 538 at gmail  (spaces inserted so it's not searchable).
 
I responded and had this in return : -
 
"Alright, I'm okay with that, but I am sorry I wouldn't be able to come myself for viewing due to crisis before making the purchase.

"You don't have to worry yourself about the shipment, My Transporter will take care of shipping and pick up as soon as you confirm the cheque is Cleared by your Bank and Cash available for use." 
 
A clear scam.
 
Curious if anyone else has had something similar.

Seems to be loads of that going on at present. Selling a few things on Gumtree and had 2 similar messages in the past week. Just delete them and ignore!
