Scammer messaged me by phone, asking me to send an email. Offered to buy ring for best price I would accept. They offered to add $200 postage - more than necessary. They said they wanted me to post it to China to her daughter in Beijing. Said to note that it was a "return to owner" item to avoid China tax.
They sent me a fake email from paypal stating that I had received an instant payment and that when I send the item, I had to scan the receipt and when paypal received the tracking details they would credit my account.
I was suspicious from the start as the speech in the correspondence was improper and they were too willing to pay extra for the postage. So glad I found out for sure it was a scam. And why send the package to China? Even working people can collect packages in the post.
