@ahelsel1025:  

I’d say scam.  The grammar is terrible, and there’ve been a lot of scams with those kinds of “delivery services.”

@yumiyumi:  It sounds incredibly fishy to me.  The simple fact that ‘she’ feels it necessary to list her entire family’s military history seems off (never mind the grammar).

oh, yes, it’s a scam.  i had something similar when i was selling some expensive jewellery.  they were in the navy, at sea and they were buying it for someone else.  they wanted to pay with paypal and they wanted it delivered asap.   i got a whole back story which was completely unnecessary.  thank goodness it sounded fishy and i asked for cash.  they tried the scam again with another large ticket item that i was selling.

i looked into it.  what they do is give paypal a bad credit card number and paypal doesn’t catch it right away.   the payment is denied but you have already sent the item.  paypal claws the payment back from the seller.  the seller is then out of the money and the item.

It’s a scam, google one or two of the sentences, it comes up.  They contacted me too.  Also, I had to find out you weren’t buying my dress through your other posts.  Pretty rude – just saying.  I think an email would have been courteous.

Scam.  Those I’m-out-of-the-country/courier-service things are always a scam.
