    This is identical to what happened to us… The scam was a 2006 Harley Davidson… They used the excuse that the person worked on a cruise ship so it was impossible to communicate verbally… It goes back to the old saying “if it seems too good to be true, it probably is”… Same people… Same setup… Romeo needs to find another name…

    The criminals use only a few scripts, and you have found one of them! It’s a good idea to make sure your friends and family are aware of these scams. It wouldn’t hurt to post in any social networking site you use, too!

    Thanks for stopping in
