I just sent the money. A total of $1,800 will be credited into your account. The receipt I got for the payment says a confirmation will be sent to your email to finish transaction. Please make sure you check both your bulk and inbox folder since most of your earlier messages landed in my bulk folder. It was really nice dealing with a person like you. Please include any paper work or appraisal or the receipt along with the parcel if it is available. The postal address is the same as my paypal verified address which is

I sold my ring on ebay and the fraud/scammer acted as PayPal and made a fake email address. The email address is: support@contactpaypalservice.com. HOWEVER, the name (e.g. John) appears as: service@paypal.com.au. Tricky peoople who don't really look (like me). He told me to send him the ring and confirmed that he had "paid" via Paypal.
He instructed me to send it to:

SCAMMER TOOK MY RING VALUED AT $4200 AND MADE ME PAY POSTAGE FOR $200. Never heard from him again. Is there anyway we can report the address to officials in China???!
