This person contacted me in response to an ad I had placed on Craig's List. He offered to buy my item at the listed cost, but would need assistance having it shipped to him since he was a soldier and was deployed. He sent an email stating he had made the payment and I would be contacted by PayPal. I received several emails that appeared as if they were sent by PayPal; however, throughout the emails, there were several claims that this was a safe way to handle transactions and informed me I could not contact PayPal because they process so many transactions and would not be available to take my call. The emails instructed me to send $1500 via Western Union and once I received confirmation, I was to respond to the email with the confirmation number. At that time (and not before), I would see the payment for the item in my PayPal account. Yeah Right!! I responded to his email telling him I was born one day but it wasn't yesterday!
