This is posted on AS.Net which one of the forum members got in reply to a wanted ad for some alloys.
Spread the word on the other forums you frequent  :th:

Hi,

My name is Gerald and am from the united Kingdom.I saw your wanted advert over the internet and i still have for sale in a mint condition.Please get back to me on geraldblas008@yahoo.com or you can simply reach me on +447031928794.

Thanks

From that email i get a strange feeling that this guy is trying to pull a fast one and so after a couple of replies without the questions i asked about the wheels answered
i googled his name and found the following:

It turns out he's well known for fraud so just for all of you fellow members out there to be aware.

Unfortunately this guy seems to have got this scamming thing down to a tee.  The individual sums of money aren't enough to get the authorities interested but if he manages 10 or so of these a month then he is making a living at it so will never stop
