I have read many a British car repair manual. I am very familiar with how "real english" words are spelled
Sad to see you desert the RT enthusiasts' club, Bob I might be the only one left ...I was trying to sell my Rhythm Traveler kit for a while for only $200. I gave up and I put the mesh heads on it and I set it up as a practice kit.
It is discouraging to say the least.I've had this kind of response to Craigslist ads twice before, and both times it seemed like the email was almost like a template with the blanks filled in. But vaguely, like: "I am very interested in your musical instruments, when the ad is clearly describing a very specific thing.
Best of luck on finding a buyer for the kit... a real person!
Haha - I thought it was the spelling thingWhat was bugging me Polly was that I couldn't figure out the scam.
I finally had to look it up.
When I did know the answer it was so stupid that I couldn't believe it.
Can you imagine getting a check that is many times the amount requested and going through with the scam?
The whole thing is insane!
The fact that it works sometimes is insane!
It is so preposterous that it works.
It's probably too late now but for next time anyone: That's mean he'd pay you extra in the check to cover the pick up money (you go ahead and pay the movers yourself since you go extra in your check) Then you 'd end up paying more cash out of your pocket on top of losing your drumsI imagine that the next step would be that he would tell me that his "Movers" can only come in a time period that won't allow the check to clear and I will have to trust him.
That is the only way that I can figure that the scam can work.
He has to get the goods before you realize that the check is bad.
Perhaps he would ask for my bank account number to direct deposit the cash into.
How about the part that says that "The movers pick up money will be included in my payment"
What does that mean?
