  Information
Name:
   Amber/Denise
Email Address:
   denise87@outlook.com.au
Initially sent an email to Denise, but Amber responded. She gave me that cock \'n\' bull story as per below to which I responded and said that I\'m interested, but I checked Amazon at the same time. I then wrote another email stating that I would prefer a face-to-face trade and am willing to drive to wherever within Sydney. Within the hour, I received 2 emails from \"Amazon\" (fake) that requested me to do a Western Union transfer. I know for a fact that money sent via Western Union cannot be traced and I would NEVER EVER send it via Western Union (once the addressee has collected the money, the money is gone and can never be traced or refunded as they are all cash transactions). Based on that, I did a thorough search for any clues on in the emails, knowing full well it is a scam by then. I clicked on the \"Contact Us\" link and my gmail popped up (which is unusual for the way my computer is set up) and the email address: checkout-buyer-protection-inc@msgserver.com came up. I did a broad Google search and this website came up, confirming it all to be a scam.
In my anger, I screen grabbed the scam page and sent it back to them with a rather heated note. I am lucky I didn\'t get scammed, but I could well have been. Thankfully I\'m a step ahead and I hope this report will help others be that step ahead too!!

Watch out for these emails please:
checkout-buyer-protection-inc@msgserver.com
denise87@outlook.com.au
