Definitely shady!!! Somebody else will buy your dress, don’t worry.

 

I’m always skeptical of people when their english is SO BAD i can barely make out what they are saying. They sound like a robot, not a normal, regular girl out to buy a used wedding dress!!! 

Paypal is always THE way to go

I used to get sketchy emails all the time when I advertized tutoring on craigslist. They were just like that, wanting to send me checks and have me pay the "difference" The english was always bad and the kids were always "in your area of living for 4 or 5 weeks" or something like that. Very wierd! I always wondered if i just took the check and didn’t pay the difference…

No, they are laundering money.  This is a way for them to get drug money (or other illegal monies) clean.  Anytime you receive an e-mail in broken english asking you to do a monetary transaction, decline.  You are opening yourself up to a crazy bad world…
