this is a re-tread of the “Nigerian car” scam, or the “craigslist” scam.
They tell a sob story, then ask you to deposit a check. The check is from a foreign bank (takes 60 days to clear). then they beg you to send some money to “whatever” by cutting a personal check. They cash the check, then the original check they sent you bounces and TA-DA, you’ve been robbed.
This makes me sad, esp this particular sob story. Dante called “Treachery against strangers” the worst of human behavior.
I will ask the admins to “ban” this user. They can re-create another user and continue. Thanks so much for pointing it out. Sorry I felt it necessary to “x” out the users email. The more times it shows up the longer this can continue.
