    Lets hope this person does not read the forums.....

    This ad was just placed in the classifieds... We need some help if possible gettign with the Swedish equivalent of the FBI (if the person is really in Swenden). He scammed a Florida Viper owner out of over $8000. Here's the scam. His phone is a prepaid cell phone, the bank account he uses is an internet bank acount which he closes as soon as the payment arrives. He has no parts, but is nice enough to include shipping. It is all 100% fraud. The phone number in this ad is his "new number".... can anyone get with the proper authorities to set this fellow up? Track the cell phone?

    Right now I have the email in the ad set to go to me, but left the phone number so as not to tip him off.... I figure we have about a week.

    Thanks! I've sent you an email with some additional info. The person is pretty slick, by using hotmail, internet banking and prepaid cell phones.... his trail does not leave much of a scent. The advantage we have for a few days is we have his current prepaid cell phone number.... but that will not last long.

    It amazes me how easy it is to set up an internet bank account and leave no trail, I would think that money Launderers would just abuse all the time!

    We are working on this, the Police is in the loop and some of the message boards "generals" are also working on it. We have probably located the donor car and the previous owner...the police will do the rest.
