    Fox RP23 7.875x2.25 High Volume Can, New

    Hello,
    My name is terece lohrey
    I'm highly intersted in your advert.
    Are you the rightful owner?

    No, I stole it from a little kid that lives around the block.

    Did you have all the paper work and the receipt of phurchase for documentation?

    I have a reciept of phurchase, purchase, perchase and perseverance.

    what is your last asking price and the present condition?

    The price has suddenly increased to $800 due to the downturn in the economy, and the condition has suddently been downgraded to "wal-mart".

    Preffered method of payment is CERTIFIED CASHIERS CHECK in AMERICAN $.

    I'm only accepting GOLD and or trade for Stuffed Squirell Collection.


    Don't include the shipping charges.

    I will.


    The shipping cost will be my own responsibility.

    Give me your address so I can bring it by and save you the trouble.


    I'll be expecting your mail soonest.

    I'll have it sooner.

    Send pics if also avilable.

    Pics attached.

    Pls reply today.

    Done.


    Cheers

    Married with Children.

    I enjoy replying to spammers with another spammer's e-mail. Oddly, they never write back.
    Hadley rear hub service here and here.

    I just got one from him too.
    They come from everywhere not just here.
    Craigslist has many of them.

    Don't you just love to F@%K with them?

    It's been so long since I dealt with Scammers that I've forgotten my usual ways. What I usually do is give the address of the Secret Service or Treasury department as my "address". Then they can send their forged cashier's check there.

    Yeah, that same guy hit me up for all three of my MTBR ads this morning. I responded to one of them with the same approach. Wish I would have saved the email to add to the conversation here. Nice work!!

    Off topic, but does the white line on the RP3 indicate the compression tune?

    No, you dolt , it indicates which secret department of the gov't address listed above that the forged check is delivered to!

    Get with the program.
    Whining is not a strategy.

    There was a cracking thread on Singletrackworld over here in the UK where they managed to convince some scamming git to get a tattoo and join their religious cult.
