Fred sent me the exact same emails. I suspected scammer/fraud instantly.

Just tell ole Fred you don't accept checks, but you do accept paypal, then ask him for his address, so you could get the total shipping costs. After that you'd know for sure. Either he'd send you money or you'd never hear from ole Fred Mustafa Hussein again.

Person emailed me too but i said i would not get a total price all together unless was serious and no answer. I said that cause i had several in the topic the person responded to and would have been at least 100.00s in actual shipping by itself, one almost full run i had listed would have been nearly 200 without shipping still at least half under guide so was looking at thousands in total.

Person is a theive if you get a reply back like that (live here but i'm out of country i'll send a check; as always it's no good and your account will be emptied and cops can't do nothing cause source is out of country).

FYI, sellers, our good friend Fred Anderson is back. I got three messages from him today, in response to two old listings and a reply I'd sent him more than a month ago. In the latter, he mentioned "We lost all we had in a fire.. I'm just trying to make our new house a home again and see smiles on the faces of my kids.." Poor guy. ;-)

I got the e-mail from him as well and sent the following reply.

Hi,

Everything I have is water damaged and shredded in hundreds of little pieces by mice. I want 25 million dollars in cash and 14 virgin brides for the stack. I only meet in person to sell my crappy books at nearby back alley in middle of the night. I will be the one there with ski mask and gun. Let me know when I can expect you to come by and get ripped off by me.

Eli

I have not heard back from him yet.
