Hello,

         My Name is Mrs Janet Stout and Thanks for your response. I am so sorry for not responding back to your message on time it was due to being busy with work, good to know the (bolt mp3) is still available for sale and still in good condition as it was described on the advert. I want you to know i have a courier company that will come for the pick up of the item, so you don't have to bother your self shipping the item, i will handle the shipping expenses. I am an oceanographer and am presently working on sea due to my status of work, i won't be able to view the goods but i will be okay with pictures if available and i will be happy to purchase it from you, no return or any complain.

      I would like to let you know that I will be making making payment to you through Pay pal because my bank account is linked to my Pay pal account and Pay pal is a secured method of payment for both of us to use.    

     I will like you to send me  your pay pal money request direct to my verified Pay pal email address which is [email protected] so that i can proceed with the payment, and if you don't have an account with Pay Pal, You can easily set up an account with them by going to their official website :www.https://www.paypal.com

     

I will look forward to hear from you soon.

Huh, it used to be that buyers couldn't collect your airsoft toy / bicycle / caravan / house in person because they worked on the oil rigs.  I guess with all this Climate Emergency going on that they've had to become oceanographers now.  Graphing the oceans, like modern day pirates with clipboards and set squares.  Yaaar.

With scams like this, they often start reasonable (though somewhat obvious) and then after a couple of emails and some chatty banter, they slip in the “you'll need to transfer the shiny / whatnot / flipflop ‘before’ I can transfer the funds”. In other cases, they collect said item and then complain that they never received it (hence the in-between courier who sadly can’t provide a receipt) then they get a refund through PP.

This scammer has been active since at least 25 June.  That is when the Mods were first made aware, and banned the new member account here.

Mrs Burn (mother of timothyburn01 presumably) has joined the list of fraudsters.  Be aware of any emails received.
