"I want to buy your house..." HUH??? Scam?

(1/3) > >>

Lawn Dart:
Ok, now this is wierd - the wife just got home and checked the mail.  We got a letter from a couple down in Yucaipa saying "We want to buy your house.  Please call us at XXX-XXX-XXXX".  This letter is legitimately hand written (no computer letter) and the postmark is local.

Is there some kind of new scam going on out there that I'm not aware of???  

I will call them, hey, it might be legit and my wife and I have thought about moving.  Just wierd...

Anyone seen this before?  Possible scam?

My grandfather bought many of his houses by walking to the door and asking if they were interested in selling.  I don't think he ever wrote a letter though.

Last I checked it was illegal to put mail into a mailbox that wasn't processed by the post office. :)

It was postmarked legally and sent from San Diego...

Heck call them back (from a phone booth) and ask them about the deal, just do not tell them where you live. Heck it may be real but I doubt it. And do not give them any details about you or your house, heck string them along just for fun.
