Remember:

  • DO NOT do business with anyone who offers to send you payment for a higher amount than your selling price with the understanding that you'll send back the balance.

  • Be suspicious of anyone claiming to be acting on behalf of a "client" or another "customer".

  • Be suspicious of anyone claiming to be from Nigeria or West Africa

  • If you agree to accept a check payment, then do not send anything, gear or "change" before the check cleared. And be careful, if you manage to clear a fraudulent check then you may be liable for the damages if the bank finds out later. Make sure your bank authenticates the check.

  • If it sounds to good to be true, then it probably is.

item to my client.And he really likes it and he has agreed to
pay the amount you charge on it.He made me understand that
he wants to pay you with a certified cheque or money order
which is very easy to cash once you pay it into your
account.Also he made perfect arrangement regarding the
shipment of the item at your house because we have a
shipping company that will come for the shipment when yu
recieve the cheque.So i will like you to mail me your the
following information so that he can lodge the payment to
you:
FULL NAME........................
FULL ADDRESS...........................
ZIP CODE......................................
PHONE NUMBER............................
COUNTRY.........................................
Am very sure you are an honest person and like
to deal with you and i want us to act on trustworthy and
honesty.the item is very important to my client because he
want to make use of it in its new film ,So you need not to
worry about the shipping.My shipper will take care of the
shipping when you contact the for the shipping.
My client is ready to offer you $600 so that you will
reserve it for me .I hope you understand all the above
arrangements.If you are okay with it kindly get back to me
withh all the information so that we can proceed.
I will be willing to read from you soon.
