[DML] Strange Offers of DeLoreans via fax and email

Hi James,

I had a brief e-mail exchange with "jncyjncy(at)yahoo.com" last night (British time). The messages were not terribly clear, although they were extremely short and direct. The contact appeared to be offering me a floor carpet piece. I can only assume that this guy (who ultimately would not disclose a name) saw my "Parts Wanted" ad on the DMCNews website and contacted me directly. 

What immediately struck me as unusual for a private sale or a used part sale was the very specific price he was asking. He asked would I be willing to pay $154.71 for the item, which is pretty much exactly what a NOS carpet piece would cost from yourselves at DMCH if my memory serves me correctly. 

I asked him to e-mail me photos of the item (to see if he was genuine) but heard nothing back. At this point I would agree: approach with caution. 

On a related note though, if anyone really DOES have the light grey passenger side floor and sill carpet suitable for an October '81 car, please drop me a line at philpeters(at)postmaster.co.uk
