|+1 Scam: SAPO Express Airmailto Nigeria and payment by paypal |
I eventually gave her my paypal account and was paid $400 USD for a dress that was advertised at R3500 and the rest was apparently for shipping costs. I received confirmation via paypal, I suspect it was faked.
I was suspicious at how she insisted on SAPO express airmail I went onto SAPO website to research on their fees. SAPO fees were considerably low compared to the extra R2000 that was paid in, i got more suspicious. I tested her by emailing to tell her that I will use DHL instead and she completely objected. This prompted me to do a bit of research on the internet and found this site with many people who had gone through a similar experience as me over the last few weeks
