A guy named Justin Terry tried to get my home address and pay pal info on boat I am selling. He has very poor English skills and claims he will buy the boat unseen and send an agent to my house and wire me the money via paypal. Total scammer I am guessing Nigerian. Here is the email he sent:
Hi Mate,
Thanks for the response, I\'m Terry by name, I was attracted with the pictures and stated condition of the Product when i went through the Ad, i may not be able to come for inspection cause am a very busy type, i work long hours everyday, I would have love to make a call, But due to the fact that our satellite base is down for now, phone calls are being restricted, More so i realized your price was a bit cheaper, compared to the asking price, regarding other inquires i made from other sellers.

I\'ve accepted your Price, I\'ll want you to Email me your home address and also your PayPal email address with your full name, i will be paying you via the fastest and secure way to pay online(PayPal) so that i can wire the required amount into your account, then I\'ll forward your mail to the Pick up agent and your home address to which they would pick it up and also my home address where they would get it delivered to my wife before my arrival back in the state, so that you can both schedule a suitable date for the Pick up when you get your funds.

Looking forward to read from you again,
Thanks and God Bless.
Mr. Justin Terry

He's changed his e-mail address but he's still sending the same old e-mail out. This was his INITIAL RESPONSE to an ad I placed on Craigslist for the sale for my boat:
This came from the e-mail address j.terrycool02@gmail.com (NOTE 02)
Hi Mate, I read an understand the Ad quite alright, but there are few thing i would like to know about the item (1) Are you the first owner ? (2) Try to email me more Pictures of it (3) You last asking price, so that we could discuss further on payment. (4) Why are you selling it? Looking forward to read from you shortly.
