Today the bidding on my mobile phone ended. The buyer states she is from Canada even though the advert stated that I only ship to UK, she e-mailed me wanting me to send the item to her boyfriend in Nigeria.
This is a total scam her e-mail is as below:
Thanks,i am happy to win your auction.i want you to know that i am buying this item as a surprise gift to my boyfriend KEHINDE OLANREWAJU ,who his currently in africa nigeria for an industrial research as a gift of my heartso kindly get back with an invoice of postage cost. which i have contacted royalmail and it should be up to 12 to 15 pounds,but i am adding 20 pounds to the item amount becos i want it ship on a sign for delivery.his address,address,P.O BOX 55458 IKEJA,LAGOS NIGERIA .pls send the invoive as soon as possible as i will make the paymnet as soon as i get the invoice, never worry as your money is secure. Am ready to pay you within 24hrs because i had log on paypal and i clicked send money and it asked me to filled a blank and type of currency i want to send and i choose pounds or is that not your choice? I copied your mail address in there and am very sure you will receive payment confirmation before today runs out or atleast tommorrow, because i want the item posted first thing tomorrow morning,thanx
As you can see there is a little bit of emotional blackmail wanting the item sent ASAP, my wifes friend lost out on her mobile with this scam, she was trusting sent it to Nigeria and never got the payment.
The above buyer is listed as a.kelly111 so beware.
