Will show interest in purchasing item/items
Asks for name, phone number and email address.
She will stop responding to emails for a week and will come up with an excuse and will proceed to offer an additional $50 for holding the item for "her".
I was a fool to believe "her" and today I received a check from "her" of $1500. She asked that I deducted the money she was gonna pay for the items plus the additional 50$. With the money that was left she asked to send it via money gram to someone else by the name of "John Hart". After letting her know that I deposited the check to my account she texted me indicating that she need my help and politely asked what I could help her with and she asked that I send her $500. After letting her know I didn't have that type of money, she never responded to my texts msgs.

Am happy you are selling to me. I got your details and have forwarded it to my secretary, payment has been issued out to you and sent to you via USPS it will deliver to you this week, I will email you with the tracking number for confirmation as soon as I am provided with it. I will also like to let you know that the shipping funds will be included with your item payment due to i might not be around when the payment arrives to you because am going to TEXAS to see my mother inlaw, once the payment arrives. You will go ahead and have the check cash or deposited into your account and once it clears then you deduct the money for your item with additional $50 for holding it for me, then you will have the rest of the money send to my shipper which i will get back to you with information for that later. then I will contact my shipper to get ready to come over for pick up immediately. LET ME KNOW IF I CAN TRUST YOU in this transaction.
Note : You are not responsible for shipping as soon as you have the check and have it cashed my shipper will be coming over for pick up.
Hope to hear back from you soon and thanks for your understanding
