Exactly the same as other reports. I didn't follow up as I thought the first email was weird, so I Googled the email address and came up with the scams.

I was contacted via a text on my phone asking if my furniture was still for sale and to email the final price to michelletony@outlook.com

I received the same reply as others:

Cheers for the prompt responses! please consider it sold and cancel every other appointment regarding it, I am buying it for my son who is moving to a new house and I am read to pay your full asking price, I have read through the advert and I'm totally satisfied with it and I will be glad if you can get back to me with some pics if available, sadly I won't be able to come for the inspection and pick up due to my disabilities, I loss my hearing and being on a wheelchair but I have a courier agent that will help me to pick it up at your preferred location.
Regarding the payment I can only pay via PayPal at the moment and I will be responsible for all the PayPal fee/charges on this transaction kindly get back to me with your PayPal email and the pick up location so that I can inform the courier agent about it now?
Awaiting your reply soon...
