This person contacted me to purchase something I had on this another site for sale. Told me he owned a shipping company and would not have to worry about the shipping. I kept questioning him about how he was going to pay. He finally said he was going to send a check for $1500 (for a $85 item) and I was to take my money and send the money onto his shipping company. Beware of this type of scam.

charly_dvd@yahoo.com is the person to be aware of :lol: :D

This is a very common scam tactic. It's nothing new. Nonetheless, not everyone is aware of this, so a cordial heads up is definately in order. Thanks for the warning.
