He texted about a car hoist. Said price was right and he only trusted www.google.checkout.com I had never heard of it so went to computer and used bing and google and sure enough poped rite up with all the google sites immediatly.

Then since it was googled on google i thought it to be safe and signed up using a debit card on a barely used account that rarely has any real cash in it for online purchases only. They (google.checkout) sent a confirmation text then an email verifacation of payment for the hoist and thats were it got funny and the rest of the RED FLAGS WENT UP!

They told me I had to go to a western union office andsend shipping money to Antartic shipping in Virginia to: John Mayes 172 Luckau Lane Petersburg Virginia B4 google.checkout would deposit my cash into my account.

If the DUMB S.O.B read any of my next txts I\'m sure his ears are still burning. He did try to say I was bound by contract with
this bogus company. I told him to F off. called my banks all of them and warned them about all.

I only pray I have no reprecusion from the ruthless BASTARD May he rot in Jail and then in eternal damnation.
