    Well he can get out of the hospital & deliver himself with cash & approve design he likes.

    That is my 1st thought why it it is a scam.

    Tell him you only accept American Dinercards or MasterExpress. Also tell him you need him to mail you a postcard with all his credit info written on it and a copy of his drivers license attached and have it sent to your local PD.

    And here I was thinking at least he didn't ask you to 'send him back money' or 'pay the shipping'.

    Amazing that so many of you got the same e-mail. Isn't there a way to bust these guys????

    I received the same email. It also included an image of the supposed car, and two jpgs of flowers. I actually wrote back, because If theyre going to waste my time I would like to waste theirs. I told them that I dont like turning down work, but in this case I didnt feel it would be fair for this person to spend more to ship a car than it would cost for the graphics. I also told them that it isnt fair to charge them a lot of money when they have ailing family in the hospital. I wished em well. Stupid.
