Contacted me via email stating she was interested in my rings. She was persistent about having me set up a PayPal account. As the time I was selling was very expensive, i google her name and saw this page. All her emails seem to be the same:

Thanks for your reply and am glad to know that it is still available for sale.However i have few questions on the item you are selling.

1,I would like to know the reason why you are selling it?
2,Do you have the original box for it?
3,what is the present condition of the item and is it ok to be a gift?
4,Do you mind if i pay you through paypal though i would be willing to add an extra dollars to cover

the shipping because am not local at the moment i am out of town on a rig offshore and i would like to purchase this item as a gift for someone very special to me at overseas.If you do not have a PayPal account, you can do so by going to and set up your account it is free,easy and guarantees transaction safety.Once you send me your paypal email account, I will send you the payment for your item as well as $90 to cover shipping via Auspost Express Mail Service.
I would be glad if my request is favorably considered,few more photos will be appreciated as well.

In the end, after a whole lot of persistent messages, i googled her email and found this page. Wasn't that surprised.
