A year and a half ago I was trying to sell a website in an auction. I was happy with the highest bid and about to accept it. It wasn't much but I really needed it. Then, out of nowhere (after the auction ended and I had to make the decision whether or not to accept the highest bid), this japanese man PMs me and offers basically 20x more than that. He told me I deserved to get a lot more for that site. I was like, wait, this is too good to be true right? Everybody just wants to get a good deal. Nothing this good ever graced my sight, let alone actually happened to me. He immediately offered some upfront and told me I'd get the remaining amount next week or so.
It actually happened. I still thank him on occasion just to let him know how much he changed my life more than everybody else combined. Plus, I still remain as an administrator, he pays for the expenses of the site, he's a better web developer than I am and he didn't implement ads. Bear in mind, all of this was handled via e-mails, no photos, insurance, etc. Each of us could have scammed the other, but didn't.
