Offered to buy an item I advertised for over $30,000 USD, sight unseen. All I had to do was have a Paypal account and send her the info. Said would have her mover pick it up. I knew right that I did not want to deal with this person for 1 of 2 reasons, possibly both. 1) No one in their right mind would pay that kind of money based on an \"assurance\" from me that the item was in good shape. 2) I would not want to get involved with anyone that crazy if they did want to buy the item. Also, the original respondent to the email was different from her email address. If I receive an email and the address contains \"gmail\", I consider it a scam or fraud. Has been true so far.
