Could be fradulent… usually when they offer to pay you more than what you’re asking it is… but I’m not an expert!

That sounds fishy to me…  The whole part about paying MORE than the asking price is what sticks out as red flag.

I say fraud,  I got 1700 dollars stolen from me through paypal a few months ago.  I would be careful and I would say don’t do it.

2. Wants you to send it to NIGERIA!!!

3. Is willing to pay MORE- classic scammer trick

Scam. Any emails involving Nigeria are scams. I remember when the Nigerian government wanted to give me a million dollars…

Oh also, the email is in broken English. Clearly not someone actually FROM the U.S. abroad on business. And who writes an email about buying a used wedding dress while abroad and “in the middle” of an important meeting? This is total BS. Tell this “buyer” that the dress has already been sold and ignore any other emails you get.
