In general terms, any messages like this that are very general and do not specifically mention the items in question usually seem to be fraudulent. Typically seen on craigslist and such.

But then I received this one:
Great ! I still have a complete 2004 Boxster S Engine in excellent
shape and condition, comes with low mileage flywheel, pressure plate
and clutch, complete exhaust system, wire harness. The engine has
never been abused, have the DME print out to show that's it's never
been overreved. Milage on engine 51k, the following is a list of mods
made on the engine -

1. Softronic Tune
2. Cold air intake - KN Filter & Aluminum box to separate from engine heat.
3. Motorsport AOS
4. LN Engineering Deep Sump
5. LN Engineering Cooler Thermostat
6. LN Engineering Spin on Oil Filter - Uses Napa or Advanced AP High
Flow Filters
7. LN Engineering Magnetic Drain Plug
8. LN Engineering IMS Bearing Fix
9. Technolabs Intake Planum
10. IBP underdrive Pulley
11. Headers ( 2" outlet pipe)
12. Cat Delete Intermidiate Pipes (larger diameter - 2")
13. Borla Muffler

Asking $5,000 USD and I will be happy to crate and load the engine
ready for shipping via UPS or FedEx on a 3 - 4 working days delivery
and will accept payment via Bank Transfer only. What's your complete
shipping address?

Many thanks again and regards,


No good, we need to stop this kind of scam
