I am selling my truck online, so this asshole emails me this crap:


Email: michealjonas770@yahoo.com

Comments: Hello, My Name Is Micheal Jonas, I saw your Car advert I want to buy your Car, kindly get back to me with the last price of the Car and also some pictures for my verification. Email: michealjonas770@yahoo.com Regards, Micheal Jonas


So I reply:


Hi Michael,

The lowest I am selling is $9000. Payment must be cash or bank check.

What pictures do you need for your verification?



Then he replies with even more crap:


Hi ,

Please be advised that it is my sincere interest to buy this your Car and i would like to ask you to kindly remove the advert from the internet? \"Only if this is possible for you\" However, it will not be possible for me to come to your country until the middle of next month. Can you reserve this Car for me until then? If it can be arranged, i can pay you even before my arrival. I am writing from Afghanistan but i expect to be in your country by next month.

My name is Michael Jonas, a war veteran based here in Kabul Afghanistan.I was recently redeployed to Afghanistan, ARMY\'S 3RD INFANTRY Divisions Kabul.

Based on the United States legislative and executive decision for withdrawing troops from Afghanistan this year, I have been deployed to come and work in your country MILITARY HEAD QUARTER , Our mission is to help beef up terrorist targeted states, mostly the United States, on the war against terrorism. I will need a Car for my movement, that is why I contacted you.

Last year December 2013, I made 11 million Dollars for participating in a confidential 4-months oil and gas deal here in Afghanistan. And it’s not just me: others here in Afghanistan have participated in a variety of crude oil deals that paid off as well. High oil prices in recent years have made this possible.

My main purpose is to invest this money in quality sectors in your country that will accumulate or yield good profit such as long term real estate related investment, large scale farming and any other profitable investment you may wish to recommend. The investments can be operated by both of us or you alone depending on the investment laws of your country.

My sincere intention in writing you is to gain your kind permission and acceptance to receive the money on my behalf in your country and also make investment with it. For your permission and acceptance, I will give you a commission (20%) as well as Buy the Car from you.

Please write me with your private Email Address

Please tell me your thoughts.


Michael Jonas.


I will not post my reply because it consists of pretty much F, S, B words and things he should do to himself(bad things).

I am posting this event so his fake name and email address could be found by searching the internet with Google and warn others. I wish there was a site where I could submit the fake names and emails used by scamers to make their lives harder.
