to me, bcc: me

Why delay....i have make the payment for the item and i have been
waiting for you to send me the shipment number so that i can mail
bank about the shipment number for you to have your money credited
into your account and i think if i did not hear back from you within
next 24hrs i will have to contact bank about scam... that you are
trying to rip me off because the payment for the item has been forward
to bank but you have to make the shipment for the item and send the
shipment number to bank for verification and as soon as the shipment
number is verified you will have your money credited into your account
with immediate effect i want to let you know that i have reported you to international police kindly go and ship out the item within 24hours otherwise you will be arrested for scam and fraud n the internet ok... Here is the shipping address

i hope that you can help me with an ordinary person w/o money thats why i am selling my item.
