Once I had my handbag sale on Gumtree in last month, a person who called Samantha gave me a txt message that she would like to buy my bandbag, then asked me to reply her BY EMAIL.
( Why i couldn't reply you on txt message? Why didn't you reply me on Gumtree directly if you would have a interest? )
She mentioned that she would like to buy my handbag FOR HER KID WHO WAS GETTING MARRIED VERY SOON, THEN SUGGESTED ME TO SEND THE ITEM TO HER VIA AUSPOST, and created the Paypal account for being ready to receive her money transferred.
( Without being negotiable to accept the price I mentioned before? )
Then, I asked her to have a transaction by face to face because i soon mentioned in the post on Gumtree and it was easy and safe for me to finish the transaction. Moreover, i was a backpacker from Hong Kong to Australia for working holiday! Nevertheless, she ignored what i said and asked me to post the handbag to :

Murray Smith
Chuan Mei daxue dingfuzhuang Chaoyang District, Beijing, Beijing, 100024 P.R. China
( WTF? )

At the same time, i received the email from service@paypal.com.au. It told me that Samantha Smith was a Verified Buyer to sent me the money with Paypal with payment details, then asked me to get the SHIPMENT TRACKING NUMBER replying by email. After that, I did nothing but to check all the details on Paypal and give Paypal a call, unfortunately i couldn't search anything on it to prove that was true.
I replied nothing to Samantha and the email from so-called "service@paypal.com.au" , did you know why?
1) As i tried to reply, i saw the receiver " serviced@paypal.com 2) I received nothing on my Paypal account.
3) If she is a Australian, why did I need to have my handbag a post to China?
4) Why I couldn't give her a txt back once i received a message?

Not long later on, when she didn't receive any reply from me, she tried to keep contact me :
1) " Hey xxx, what is going on? I have read from you. "
2) " Hey xxx, Kindly reply me, what the hell is going on? "
3) " Hello did you just scammed me? "

Fucking Samantha, it's not your real name. However, what you said doesn't make sense with your bull-shit grammar for sure.

Remarks :
( Txt ) - That time I thought to myself.
