Goodday
This is James Willy, i would like to know if you do Lawn Mower repair, and do you accept credit cards for payment, are you the owner or the manager actually i just relocated from my old house in LA down to your city 3 days ago and i have 3? lawn mower and i need the engine repair, basically i just moved in to IL now and i am at the hospital right now because i was down with a diagnosis of cancer of the lungs as such i had to spend some time in the intensive care,so i want to do the repair arrangement for the lawn mower and after completing the payment with my credit card,so that i can contact my private delivery shipper in LA to move those lawn mower down to your shop for the repair Asap, so let me know if you can handle that for me.

Due Regards,
James Willy.


this was my version I am however trying to figure out how they make money on this scam unless they talk you into giving them cash back on the repair or something.

Had this one all ready. They want you to charge something like $3500 to the credit card, keep $1500 for yourself, then send the other $2000 to their shipper. NOT!
