I wonder if he found this thread, came to the US and played Terminator on the Resonator.

Let's try to wind this up again...

Hi Terry,

Sorry I've been out of touch for so long. We had a big holiday in
America on July 4 (Independence Day) and my girlfriends surprised me
by taking me on a long vacation to Florida to sit on the beach and
drink and then party at night. We did this for 8 days and believe
me, we had a lot of fun. I wish you were there with us!

Anyway, do you still have the Pultecs? This guy in Russia hasn't
sent my $1000 back yet, but I'm still really interested in your
units. The convertors are something I could really use with my
digital crystal clock. I am ready to send the money but I don't know
if you still have the units.

Please let me know. Why don't you write me any more?

Hugs,

Nancy

Guys, the letter above was something I sent to him about 3 weeks ago and he did reply:

-----

I didn't reply right away, primarily because I HAVE WORK TO DO and this guy just takes a licking and keeps on ticking. But at the same time, I'd love to get a 3 way dialog going between me (Nancy), the UK scammer (Terry) and my FAKE Russian scammer (Nicholai). I've set up a separate hotmail account to handle the email between Nicholai (actually me) and the UK scammer. But first, we need to hook UK boy back in. So today I sent this...I think you'll like it:

----
Terry,

Are you still there? I'm now finally back from all of my vacations. After the Florida trip, my friends took me to the Badlands of North Dakota. It's this really cool place with rolling hills, sand dunes and lots of places to party hard with my friends. Look it up on the U.S. map. I was wishing you were there the whole time.

Anyway, the Russian guy didn't send back my money, but he has written me and sent me lots of pictures of his Pultecs. I think he might be honest. I asked my father for more money and he told me that he could give me $5000 more dollars if I really needed it. So, I'm thinking about maybe buying all four of the Pultecs. The Russian ones are the hard ones to find with the Mackie transformers and vintage Alesis attenuators. So, if you have the normal ones, I could have lots of choices. I also want to work in Surround mode, so I could use more Pultecs. Have you ever used four at one time? My Surround setup is 4:0, and when I add one of those big bass speakers, I'll finally be 4:1.

Please tell me when you are ready to ship the units if you still have them. I miss you. Can you come to the U.S.?

Hugs,

Nancy

Resonater,
Just found this thread. Must say I'm loving it.
It does seem that UK "seller" might be tipped off by now, his responses chilled out a tad...
If I may suggest;
Quote:
Mackie transformers and vintage Alesis attenuators.
Those are easy to Google..I would not use real manufacturers name. Something like :flat wound NIoxide trannies..and negative infinty elliptical attenuators be funny.
Also, Nancy could be in love with a client rock singer,who is very protective and already booking a trip to Russia ! He could stopover in London to pick up the Pultecs !!
>>send picture of Pierrick<

Have fun..

OK...remember that a couple days ago, I wrote UK scam boy to see if we can get him back on the line after our hiatus. So this morning, I get a letter from him. It reads:

-----
Yes i still have them.And i have the ones i told you.i had a felling you will come back.Anyway we will talk only after i will see the payment sent via MoneyGram not Western Union
thanks

Ok. So he's making it clear that we need to come up with some money here or this game is over. Fair enough. But do we want to see him leave the gearslutz board? So, as mentioned above, I got a hotmail account and called myself Nickolai, a russian scammer who is "supposedly" also trying to sell me Pultecs. So here's what Nickolai sent to UK scammer:

-------
hi my uk friend. my name is nickolai and i write you from small town outside moscow russia. do you know this stupid american girl nancy frazier? she gave me your email to make sure you are honest man. man i tell you this girl is STUPID. she send me 1000 dolars US on the western union already. no problem! she thinks i have pulltecs for sale. what stupid american! tomorrow she sends me more 5000 dolars US because i send her pictures of pulltecs from internet. she told me about you and we can work together to get all her dolars. i know her father gave her more moneys to buy gears and we need to get all that moneys. she say she tried to send you moneys on the western uion but there was problem. no problem here. and she send me pictures with no clothings on! she is a sex freak too. pictures with girlfriend making the nasty things.

but here is what you need to do. tell her i wrote you to make sure you are honest man. tell her you make sure i send the pulltecs. also tell her you have the german mikrophono by neumann i think it model m49 made in 1950s. she will buy from you this for 5000 dolars US. send her pictures of you to make good friend. then she feels you are honest. tell her to visit you and make like nice man. then you will get the moneys but we need to work together on this. lets make the dolars together m y uk friend.

So, what will UK scammer do? Will he choose to work with Nickolai poor Nancy's "dolars US"? Or, now having fallen a bit for Nancy, will the smitten UK boy blow the whistle on Nickolai? We didn't have wait long for our answer:

-------
HY THERE NANCY
I HAVE BEEN CONTACTED BY THAT RUSSIAN SCAMMER,HERE WHAT HE SAID ABOUT YOU,THOSE UGLY THINGS.PLEASE DON'T SEND HIM NOTHING,IT WOULD BE A SHAME THAT YOU FALL AGAIN FOR THAT GUY.
I REALLY NEED MONEY HERE AND I STILL HAVE THE PULTECS SO PLEASE SEND THE MONEY TO ME.DON'T MAKE A MISTAKE.YOU KNOW A LOT OF THINGS ABOUT ME,SO I THINK YOU TRUST ME.
PLEASE EMAIL ME AND TELL ME HOW SOON YOU CAN MAKE THE PAYMENT
THANKS

Guys, we are in uncharted territory here, playing all sides against each other. I just sent this to UK boy:

-------
Terry,

Why did you take so long to write back? When you didn't write me over the weekend, I thought you had sold the Pultecs.

Only this morning I was at Western Union to send $5000.00 more dollars to Nickolai. I think he is an honest man. Do you think he is not honest? Maybe I should go back to Western Union to get the money back. I just called and they said that he did not pick up the money yet.

Why do you think Nickolai is not honest? He sent me a lot of pictures of his Pultecs and they look like excellent condition. Some of the nicest I have ever seen. He told me he can ship immediately and I could have the units for my sessions on August 14. Are you sure he's not an honest man? I don't want to lose $5000.00 dollars.

Your friend,

Nancy
