So I sent an e-mail to this address saying what I am selling and how much etc and about 24-36 hours later recieved this reply
\"Am okay with the price of the item.I will like the shipping to be handle by Post Office so i will add up the shipping cost,also I will be doing the payment Paypal money transfer. do send me your PayPal Email ID with Name or send me paypal money request.
To proceed with the payment for the item.
So i wait to read from you soon.
So then I replied again asking for him to send the money and for a postal address and received this... \"Ok.. i will proceed with the payment.\" Then waited for a couple of days before receiving a couple of odd looking emails from Paypal which after a brief phone call to paypal customer service told me that the emails were fake.
Then as I was still on the phone I received this message
Am happy to inform you that i have made the payment so i will like to know if you have receive any confirmation email from them if not i will like you to check your mail,i will like you to help me get the item shipped as a gift to West Africa i have include the shipping cost in the payment so that i can cover the S&H amount,So i will like you to proceed the shipment to my son address:
Address:# 50 Lafenwa Street
with POST OFFICE and as soon as the shipment as been done, i will like you to get me notify by sending me the tracking number.
I was only asking for Â£60 to include p+p but one of the two fake Paypal e-mails said a payment of Â£90.00 had been paid
