Scam?

Of course it's a scam...If it were not immediately obvious from the
grammatical slurry that is Mr. Wettons' message below that he is about as
British as Shaka Zulu's bunions, then please refer to this webpage
concerning Nigerian-based 419 scams, wherein our esteemed Mr. Wetton is
mentioned by name as a well-known miscreant:
http://www.data-wales.co.uk/nigerian.htm

For a funny look at this type of scam, and one fellow doing something about
it, see http://www.quatloos.com/brad-c/directory01.htm . It's a hoot!

Hello,

How are you today?

I am from the United Kingdom and i would really love to use this car here in
the uk, but hope its not a problem car and also how much is the last price
you are gonna give it out.

So i will need your name and address so i contact my agent in oklahoma to
send you a cashiers check for payment as soon as possible.

And i will tell my shipping agent to come for inspection of the car as soon
as you recieve the check.
