Hi,Thanks for getting back to me,i will let youknow that i'mgetting this item for my pastors son,ho when for a missionary trip in west africa,but i'm notmaround to post the item myself,so i would offer you 60pounds topost for me,via royalmail signed for,i will be paying tthrough pay pal online auctions,so please if accepted get back to me with you pay pal full name and mail address so i can forward you the payment as soon as possible,ok
Hope to read from you soon,
Susan.

What do you think of it? I did a quick reply saying this....

Sorry, I will not accept this. I will only post within the UK so you can either buy the phone from me through paypal and I'd post it to your UK Address or you can come and arrange a time to come collect the phone from me yourself. If you cannot do either of these then i'm afraid I wont accept.

Mark

fair enough?

TBH mate I don't see why you even have to mention it on here, or even bothered to reply to to the query. We've all had them. As soon as Africa is mentioned that's the end of the conversation.

I wanted to see what someone thought about it, if they're willing to pay through Paypal it's a diffrent type of scam or so it seems, Well if it doesnt matter so much to you why post in here? this is misc section remember.

Self promotion? You need to calm down I dont advertise anything on here to promote myself at all. I gave an example of what someone has replied to me about. i edited them out none the less so dont go accusing me of something I have not done.

I am sure someone else posted something similar a few weeks back, they had an almost identical reply to their ad. Obviously its the current scam.

yeah seems so, I've had alot replies about this sort of stuff even through selling an item on Amazon! It's very sad that they think the only way they can earn money is to scam people. It's not on.

brought up the same? you have no clue who this person is. she could be the most richest person in africa and still be trying to get other peoples money. Some people get a kick out of it. If you had a counsious you wouldnt, by looks of it you dont.

Having a conscience means I know it would be wrong but I would still steal to feed my family, if I had no other means to feed them. Thankfully I have the means to feed my family without affecting my conscience.
