Payment will be made to you via Bank Certified Check prior to you sending the products, so let me know if the means of payment is accepted, as i do not operate credit card or Paypal and i am a deaf woman,looking forward to read from you hopefully soon and i will also tell my family and friends about you, if you treat me well....Below are the list of products I want to order and my full name and contact address if needed to calculate shipment cost

You can do this by going to Walmart. I’ve never had anyone order this way so I am a bit skeptical doing so. I would love to help you if possible, however I am not sure that I feel comfortable giving my address out to someone I haven’t met and haven’t done business with before. Can you tell me what bank you would be sending the payment from? How soon do you need the products? Once I place the order, it takes between 7-10 days for it to be shipped to me and then I would ship the products to you. I will tell you this up front, I will not order the products until I know that the check you send me goes through with no problem. That way I can make sure that I am not out of the cost for the products if something happens and it doesn’t go through. I am not in anyway saying that you are planning on sending me a fraudulent check, however, I do have to act as if this is a scam, only because I have been scammed in the past. If you are ok with everything that I have said, then we can move forward and I will get you the amount of what it will cost for the products you requested. Please let me know so I can move quickly on this. Thanks, Sandra

There are many to choose from and because I don’t know what your daughter looks like, I cannot help you choose those colors without a picture in natural lighting so I can see what color for foundation and concealer. I also need to know what color pallet for eye shadow, color for lip-gloss, lip stain and eyeliner and brow liner pencil. As of right now, I totaled everything up and the total without shipping is $560.00. What I can do for you is after you send me the check and it clears the bank, I can have the products shipped directly to you instead of it coming to my house then me shipping it to you. Let me know if this works for you and also the requested info I need to proceed with the order. Thanks, Sandra

If you are not comfortable with working with me and purchasing my order, you can let me know, so i can look for an alternative. Just so you know, i'm not trying to scam you here. You will be sending the products as soon as you have the money in your account Light precision Brow Liner Scarlett foundation and concealer Palette 3 shy upper Lip stain Posh Lip Liner Ladylike Lucrative lip Liner White striped Bag What are the details to be written on the check?

You can send the check to: I GAVE HER MY ADDRESS I haven't received anything back from her, however after researching and copying this email and pasting it in Google, I found almost the exact same email, with a little different wording and a different email address. I am not sure what the point of going through all of this was to begin with, because I made it very clear that I would not be sending the product until after payment has cleared my account, so when she/he emailed me back that, that was ok, I didn't think honestly that it was a scam....until I didn't hear anything back after my last email. I don't know if he/she is planning on robbing me since I did give her my address to send the "Certified Bank Check", but if that is the case, he/she will be in for a rude awakening as my husband is a retired Police Officer.
