Is this a Scam?

Attachments :
    Hi guys,

    In the last month or so I've had two emails like the one below, offering to sell me parts from a '29 Sedan (attached). From different names but the same car (which was also on Hemmings fairly recently).

    I went along with the first one for a while to see what would happen. He sent more photos - very poor quality - and quoted me $300 for the radiator shell and upper water manifold. I declined these because (a) the shell was no better than mine and (b) the manifold had obviously failed and was in two pieces! I asked him for a price for the three clips (just the three clips) on the spark plug cable tube that secures the Electrolock and oil line: he came back with $150! He had refused to give an address where the car/parts could be inspected and also refused to use PayPal. At this point I gave the game away - I think he's a scam artist, or looking to do a bit of identity theft.

    Then this morning I've had the conversation below.

    Both approaches came from an advert I'd placed on our local HET website.

    Any thoughts?

    Peter R.
