I am a first time seller on the internet. Received a sms on my mobile regarding interest in buying my IPad. As a first time seller, it excites me when there is a buyer who wants to buy the product I am selling. Response to the e-mail address given in the sms. The e-mail reply was found in my mail box spam folder 2 days later. Everything in the e-mail seems convincing except for the country which the product was supposed to be sent - Africa. Having read a lot of scams coming from Africa including the famous Nigerian scam on inheriting will etc, I became suspicious and checked the net about people posing as oceanographer. Based as posting in this website, I should deduced this as a fake and forgo about selling to the buyer.
