    Please be alert when selling things online! This person tried to scam my friend. Please note the following red flags,

    1. He is apparently an offshore worker, so out of the country and prefers contact via email,

    2. He wants the item as a ‘surprise’ for his cousin and

    3. He will send a ‘pick up agent’ to collect the item. There are examples of this exact scam online, he didn’t even bother to change the wording…

    Thanks for posting. This is a classic scam that came in many forms. Usually centers around a money transfer of some sort. Usually the trick is in the money transfer as it is fake. Check out this story
