he offered over the asking price for a sight unseen horse which he referred to as 'the item'. fake pre written email stating to send him my paypal details to arrange payment. the first email asked if 'it' was still for sale. this is a copy of the second email; Thanks for getting back to me on here,i will take it for $5,200 including PayPal surcharges since i am interested in the immediate purchase. I will be paying the PayPal charges from my account and i will be paying directly into your PayPal account without any delay, and i hope you have a paypal account If you have one already, just send me the address to send it to, which is the email address you use for it or you can send me a paypal money request, so once i receive the details i will go ahead with the payment through PayPal and then i will add the shipping fee after you get the payment you now take care of shipping...Get back to me with the details below :
Name: PayPal Email address Cell Phone No.: Total Cost of the item.
