Can't believe you actually had to ask if this WAS a scam.

Anyway, I have seen a very similar email before so I can confirm.

As above I'm surprised you needed to ask but sadly that is what these people rely on.

If you want to have a laugh these guys have a bit of sport with our West African friends...

and my favourite...

They tie these clowns in knots.

I just want to add:

THIS IS A SCAM!!

I can't be clearer than that.

P.S. if you feel confident then there's no harm in stringing them along for a bit. Pretend that you really like their place and 'actually' you want to buy it. Try and get them to meet you at Vancouver Airport on the promise you'll buy their place for $400,000 and you'll pay a deposit in cash of $50,000, if they meet you.

Of course, you don't show up... and they've spent their air fares in getting to Vancouver Airport, it's all these con artists deserve. (that's if you want to).
