    I got the following email today and was wondering if anyone has seen anything like it before? There are numerous red flags on this one, the least of which is the bad English, the VIN number included, the mention of recuperating in the hospital, the lack of a business name, etc.

    Yes, the same one was recently posted here by someone else.

    So far I've received, banner scam, t-shirt scam, sandblasted signs scam, furniture store sales rep scam, and the in house massage therapist scam guaranteeing a happy ending.

    It has to be on the level. He has the right number of characters in his VIN.

    Don't forget the 'Merchant Processing' phone scam where they pretend to be your CC processor and offer you a lower rate.

    Yeah a VIN and it has to be towed to you to do the wrap, sounds kinda scamish to me. I got the banner scam already.

    Seems perfectly legit to me even if it's listed as a 2001 & 2010. what's 9 years anyway?
