  Information
Name:
   She goes by Stacy Singer or Stacy _____
Email Address:

She claims that she is an oceanist and that she is not in town but needs to buy things for her father. She says she can only pay through paypal but then asks you to pay her delivery guy in advance for her (sometimes through Western Union). She also claims she has no online banking and she doesn\'t have her credit cards with her...imagine that. She goes by multiple names. I think she changes her last name to your first name if you don\'t fall for her scam the first time.

She tried to ensnare me too. I was advertizing an expensive vintage guitar for sale and she said she was without credit cards and could only pay by PayPal. Later she said she would have a "pickup agent" come and get the guitar. I got three e-mails from what purported to be via PayPal informing me that they were holding my funds until I sent her agent $900. ! I then logged into my PayPal account and found no such activity had occurred.
Below is what she sent me:
I have made the payment and i expect paypal to have emailed by now,check your PayPal email address both inbox,junk and spam if you have been messaged yet,i sent $3,000.00 USD in all, paypal said they would be holding the funds because of the excess payments of $900 added meant for pick up of the posting and due to the fact that i emailed them about the excess payment i made, until they get the western union information from you, i will need you to send $900 to my pick up agent via western union money transfer, i also add $100 western union charges., here is the pick up agent info,
