There used to be a guy [no mention of nationality:-] who would come up to you in one of the service areas on the M6 and say that he'd not got the money to buy fuel to get to a port and could he sell you his 'expensive' coat. Of course he'd never remember who he'd asked and who he hadn't and I used to say to him, 'Don't tell me!! you need the money to get to the port, how have you managed to feed yourself since the last time you asked me three weeks ago'
And off he'd go to find someone else completely non-plussed by the encounter with me.
He must have made a good living out of it for about 20 years, he always drove a very nice car.

Certainly not new news, I was approached by two guys in a white van probably 10 years ago wanting to sell me a set of Home Theater speakers. It was a slightly different story, The customer had backed out of the deal and now they had to sell them at less than cost so that they could get back what they could (as they had family's to feed).
I didn't even look at them... not long after I saw an article in the paper about the white van speaker scam.
Ebay is absolutely full of scams, not just speakers, I'm extremely reluctant to buy anything off ebay these days.
Any intelligence I may appear to have is purely artificial!
