    I know I'm posting in the wrong place, but seem to have problems creating a new message, so just post here. This message needs to get out on the net since it's a new scam and a clever one as well and there aren't info available on these scammers.

    Warning! Bruce Winter / Claude Dunn used car scam!

    I have been selling my used car and was contacted by a so called Bruce Winter with email address [email protected] and a Claude Dunn [email protected]

    Both of these charachters have exactly the same story and they are very clever scammers, be aware!

    There is a third charachter called Scott Bright with email [email protected] who supposedly is helping out a friend to find a car.

    This is some of the correspondence:

    > claude dunn has sent you this message:
    >
    > My name is CLAUDE DUNN,i am interested in buying your car,so please if it is still for
    > sale i will like you to mail me back with the last price and the
    > present condition, hope to read from you soon.
    >
    >
    > Claude

    Bove of these scammers are telling you they will send you a cheque, then they tell you that they need the car in advance. They supposedly have been out of town for a modelling promo.

    If you even think for a second that there is anything REMOTELY close to being "clever" about these scammers...

    a) You are way too young to be even looking into this.

    b) P.T. Barnum was right.

    c) Both a) and b) are true.

    Maybe it's just me, but this is so damn obvious that they could have written the word "SCAM" all over their email and it wouldn't make the totally obvious any more noticeable.

    PLEASE.

    Come on dude post a cheque for a car? LOL
    Get the car in advance?? hahaha
    Until you sign the form its still yours anyway, so theyd be stealing it.
    So insure it for more than they'll give you, and let them have it, when the cheque bounce its stolen, you'll get the insurance money.:shocked:

    I posted this in a hurry, the whole clever thing came in that the guy offered to post a cheque and told me that I can get it cleared by the bank first, like he was really genuine.

    I know that people don't usually pay for something they haven't seen but I've sent him a lot of detailed images and thought maybe he is sincere since he said no problem to wait for the cheque to clear.

    When you think about it, would these scammers be operating if there weren't any naive people in the world??

    But then the guy or one of his buddies made the mistake to send the same message to me under another name and then continued on in the normal scam fashion by saying that they need the car early ect ect.

    It seems, dude, that you don't know how clever scammers really can be. They take another car's number plate which looks one to one like yours which they found by browsing adverts on the internet and replace your number plate with that number plate, then when they drive your car with the other number plate, the police will never think for a moment that the car is stolen since it then got the number plate of a car which is insured and taxed.:shocked: I'm not so convinced that the insurance company will pay for it, will they?

    Be careful though because although the cheque may clear it may be a real cheque, and very well may clear.
    But in 2 months when the accountant see's hey this company or person didn't buy any car for this amount or write a cheque for this amount etc the bank will take it back.
    There was a scam to this effect, where you would get cheques posted to you and when they cleared send someone a portion via western union.
    They were real cheques and did indeed clear, however when the owner of the cheques reported it was fraud the banks took back the money and left the victim with a negative balance/debt to the bank with high interest.

    They very well may do this.If its reported stolen the same make model color etc the police will check engine and chassis numbers of this type of car as it will be on there stolen vehicle list.
    If they moved it to another area sure the police might not check this.
    But if they ever try and sell it etc its useless.Until you sign it over to them.
    They may strip it and sell the parts (probably would never get caught).
    They may buy cheap the same vehicle that has been written off and use the chassis number and engine block with the number then sell it.
    If the car is insured, and you let them drive it pending a cheque clearing, and the cheque bounces, and you haven't signed the vehicle into there name.Then it is stolen and you can report this and claim the insurance.
    Will the insurance company pay? Well they always try not to, but its your job to make them after all if they don't what is the point of having it in the first place.

    Thank you for that TheCableGuy, I didn't know that they could do that. I would have likely fallen for that one, which would have been the worst case!

    Un update on the scam. There is now a guy with e-mail address [email protected] and his name is supposedly Brat Bruce, who is of course the shipping agent (we all know that one!)

    What I don't get about these scammers are that they don't stick to one story or follow a story to make it seem more believeable, now they are writing an e-mail saying they sent £7000 instead of the £2900 which was the real price.

    Anyway the car have long been sold to a real buyer, but I'm still receiving messages from these idiots.
