I received an email from this person wanting to buy an item from me.Claimed it was for his son as a gift. he worked as a petroleum engineer offshore and can only transfer money through paypal. He voluntered to pay for fees I would be hit for by paypal. That was a red flag to my wife. I then googled his name & found other emails exactly like he sent me. What a relief to me. Emails seemed fishy to me...his spelling and grammer. He never seemed to understand what i was selling. This back and forth went on for maybe 5-6 days. Really glad i googled his name.
