As it turns out, the day after I replied to the person requesting to have my Jeep shipped to Holland, he disabled his email address, and I never heard back from him again.
My theory is that there’s a possibility that he was attempting to do the deal as a way of laundering money. He would issue me an anonymous cashier’s cheque for $10,000, then he would get me to wire $2800 to a friend of his (Drug dealer?) – Then somebody would pick up the Jeep and re-sell it? I suspect he was probably local, but made up this story in order to get me to wire the $2800. If I was the one wiring the 2800, the paper trail would lead back to me.
Or on the other hand, maybe it was just a joke. A strange joke indeed. Maybe one of my buddies is laughing about it right now.
