An oceanist now?

 

Well, la-de-frikkin-da, aren't we getting hoity-toity.

 

Usually, they're just marine engineers, they used to be just sailors.

 

 

It's a scam, though.  Ignore it.

I got a very similar message yesterday when advertising a car for sale on Trade it, who are they, how do they scam you?

 

Messages all end in 'stay blessed', what does that mean?

Re: I got this one today - oceanist

Same here, received this today in response to a craigslist ad. Funny how a guy at sea wants desperately to buy an antique couch, even willing to pay $100 over the asking price. The "Buyer" is an "oceanist" !!! Well he sure isn't a scam "artist" as the ruse isn't very artistic!

Just got the same exact email (word for word) for a welder we're selling.  It was written from a Cathy  (cathykren22) Told her (or him) that we won't take anything execpt cash or a cashier's check.

I got a very similar email today from a "Ford". I have a vehicle listed on Craigslist. Almost fell for it. Why can't people just be honest???!!!
