After I got this email below I searched the name and saw how many people reported this person, SO BEWARE!!
I have sent the payment from my account.....and i must say this transaction is OK.
Please note: I'm shipping the item to my receiver in China and here is his address below:
Name: OTTE RUDIGER AKI
Address: ChaoyangQu huang SanMudia 10
Phone Number : 15810576105
I want you to ship the item via Auspost Airmail(Standard International Post),the tracking number starts with "LK",this is because i want the receiver to avoid customs declaration and tax at destination,reason is because its a gift,the receiver is not expecting it or knows whats inside the package,also i want you to help me wrap it with a gift wrapper and then write,specify and declare it as "Gift" get back to me as soon as its sent......also i want you to go through the PayPal notification email so you'll know what next to do so that your account can be credited without delay.
Hope to hear from you soon.
Make sure you send the certificate or receipt with it if you have one.

Scammer contacted me via SMS first saying they cant talk due to the nature of their work, so an email was sent to reply to. Scammer agreed on a price and I sent a link to my PayPal account for the transaction to be made. A conformation email was sent by "supposedly Paypal" and said it would cleared once tracking number on Iteam had been sent.
FIRST EMAIL: 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 (Beijing,China).If you do not have PayPal account, you can do so by going to www.PayPal.com to 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 Airmail(Standard International Post). I would be glad if my request is favorably considered,few more photos will be appreciated as well.

Wrote back and forth for hours pretending to be interested in buying a watch I had for sale. Sent fake Paypal emails which stayed I needed to post item and tracking to then receive payment from buyer as it was international sale and to avoid import tax or some rubbish. Looked up her email on google and found her.
