That engine is currently on ebay and is being listed for $35,000

Alfa Romeo 750 Veloce Engine and Transmission | eBay

A complete 750 veloce engine certainly is worth anywhere between twice or three times the $4,000 asking price. If it sounds to good to be true it is because it is too good to be true. Therefore, clearly a SCAM.

Ask the scam artist to supply you with his contact number and physical address, payment on delivery or pickup. The person if you can call him that will then insist on a deposit before dealing with you.

Got an email from '1950' today. Looks like the original reason for this post has returned. However he didn't stipulate what part(s) he was offering.. maybe he was offering me a time machine to go back five days and replace the head on my 164 before it dropped a valve? :)

Beware of "Dave Cooper" in Wales

I posted my direct email address in my Wanted ad on the BB yesterday.

Today I received the following message in my personal Inbox:

--
I have lot's of parts at my disposal at the moment and as regard to
the public advert you placed, am contacting you as I can actually help
source them out if you let me have a list of required parts and a
phone number to call.

Warm regards,

Dave Cooper ([email protected])
Wales, United Kingdom.

I believe this 'Dave Cooper' is just the latest phony name being used in this string of scammers.

Similar pattern:

Hi,

 I am a visitor on the Alfabb forum and not a member. Also i will accept payment via Western union or Moneygram as i am not setup with PayPal. I do have not have photo of the eyelid but not to worry on condition as is excellent and it can be returned back if condition is not as advised.

Thanks,

I'm afraid Ian Sparrow sent me the exact same message regarding some bumpers for my spider. I have to say I was tempted to do business with him until I saw that he was banned. He's so eager on his emails too, just to good to be true.
