Well, I was advertising of my room for rent, this girl emailed me the other day. She said she is a Chinese doctor 26yo working on a cruise boat.
She wants to pay 3 months rent and Bond in advance as well as her shipping fee for her belongings by Paypal as she couldnt make a payment to ship her stuff for a shipping company so she asked me to pay from Australia instead of her. Probably she was planning to refund all the money from Paypal after I sent the shipping money to China.
