Dear seller,
I am Dr Philip Smith,i am interested in the immediate purchase of your item.I will offer you US$400.00 including shipping fee via USPS global exress mail to Africa because it is needed urgently for my coulegue son birthday that will comence there i would have loved to recieve the shipment here and later send to him but due to my kind
of job,i travel alot and that is why i need you to send straight to him.
I will be making payment right away,i shall also be paying this total amount via(United State Postal Servece Money Order) and so i will want to complete the transaction in a very timely manner and shipped out immediately after you are been notify of the payment Approval.All i need is your valid details such as:Name,Adress,City, State,
zip-code and country to make the payment as soon as possible
Hope to hear from you soon


Who would even fall for this? You can buy a new Ipod for $200. "Philip Smith" from Africa, sureeee you are Philip. How the hell is he going to scam me anyway? How can I f*ck with him?

Regards,
Dr smith....

He will try to get you to cancel the auction and do an Off EBay transaction. He will send a fake postal money order, or try to get you to ship before payment is received.

Makes sense, but who sends an item before they have cash in hand or before the cash the MO. I hate these people

Are you going to send this guy your real name and address? Sounds like a good way to meet the governor!
