I wanted to sell my iPhone on Junkmail in South Africa. To make a long story short, this person and two other scammers tried to get me to send the phone before they pay me. All three had this in common:
1. The addresses they give are Surelere, Lagos, Nigeria
2. Bad grammar
3. Lots of \'okays\'
4. They usually refer to \'the item\' instead of being specific.
5. They all have \'account managers\' and use a Bank Of America account(fake)
6. They are VERY persistent. They even threatened to sue me if I don\'t ship the phone(I don\'t know what for...)
7. They all want your \'paypal email\'
Follow Ups/Extra Information. Most recent is listed first.

I am interested in buying this stuff for my kid who schools abroad. Regarding payment, i would prefer to pay with PayPal as i feel comfortable using PayPal for online transaction because of safety. It would be very helpful if you could help me ship it over to him. I would have make the process by myself but the fact that I am on a business trip out of the country presently makes it impossible for me to do so. I would add R600 to the money due to the cost of shipping internationally. If this works for you, get back to me with your PayPal email as i can send the funds now
