This person tried to purchase a blackberry from me, said she was in the USA and wanted it as a gift for a friend in Nigeria, I received a mail from ( supposedly ) Bank of America saying that payment has been made and that they would release the funds to my account as soon as I send them proof of shipping details and tracking number.
The address in question where the goods were to be shipped to is
Abiodun Paul
10 Fufu street sabo-oke maraba
Kwara state

the address is legit and checks out on google maps too

below is the email received regarding payment

Bank of America

Dear Mr S L Van der Riet,

This payment has been approved and it is currently pending for shipment details to be received before it will be transferred. You are to send out the item that has been paid for by our client and send the shipment details to us in order for negotiations to be commenced with your bank and finally send the security answer to you which will enable you to receive the fund. If the shipment details is not received, payment will not be received by you.

Failure to send out the item and provide the bank with the shipment details will result to a complaint filed to your Bank against you as a suspected fraudulent seller. We\'ve been call to notice that some sellers after receiving payment, they do not send out the item (Goods/Service) paid for, and when this occurs, customers come to hold the bank responsible and not the seller.

When the shipment details are received from you, we will start the verification process. Contacts will be made to the agency that the shipment was done. Some sellers provide fake shipment details. If it turns out that the shipment details are false, this automatically means you are a scammer and will be reported to the Authorities to take immediate action against you.
