Comments => Hello, I just want to know if your merchandise is still available for sale. Kindly let me know for the payment to be issued to you soonest. get back to me asap,
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.

I got one from this same person. He is not a skydiver, and the type of wording he uses is the same as many other scammers. I even asked him where he jumps, and he avoided the question, and responded with a stupid response about his client in the States paying me with a cashiers check. Here's the e-mail thread.........
Kindly let me know your best offer, so we could move on from there, for me to instruct my Client in the States to issue and mail a Certified Cashiers Check to you in your name. Have a nice evening :),
Best Regards, Keiko
