This has been posted before but I wanted to put the word out again. I got an email from Ronniealexis001@yahoo.com ready to buy the vases I had listed immediately. I thought it was a little fishy when he asked for so much information(email, address, phone number, full name), and said he could ONLY pay via paypal. He said he was at sea and this was a gift for his sister, and that once the payment was made he would send someone over to pick the the vases up.
After seaching on pipl.com and facebook and not turning anything up, I googled his email address and found this web site:
Apparently he is one of many who try to pull this. This is the initial email I received:

This same email has been sent to people under different names, but with the same story. The person is at sea and they can only pay via paypal, and when the transaction is supposedly done, they send a fake paypal confirmation page.
