Just a heads up to everyone. I had a buyer interested in a couple of my things. I have told this person that I will not be selling my items to them. I find it odd that they are going to compensate me an extra 50 bucks??? and everything else seems a little fishy too. There screen name is Olatanwa and here is the reply I received.
Thank for your swift mail...........am very happy to see your mail i just want to inform you am okay with price of the unit which is $45 plus compensation of $50 for not to sale the unit for any body making $50 you don't need to bother your self about the shipping i have my shipper that will come for the pick up in your location and also do you have any other unit for sale so that i can make all the payment together please i want you to mail me direct to my personal email ****** with your full name and the other unit you have for sale so i will be waiting to read for you asap

oh yeah total scam! we had this happen to us at work once… we followed through with having them send the money orderes ( becasue we wante dto see them) we didnt send any objects to them so we didnt get scamed. But a lot of times they send “photocopied” money orders that have the same serial numbers they look legit until you go to cash them

I received another response saying she wanted my full name to send a paypal payment. I have done MANY paypal transactions and I know that you only need an email addy. I mean giving someone my name is not that big of a deal but her reasoning for needing it is boogus for sure!
