I guess these are becoming more and more common. I just thought i would share my experience. So a buyer found my listing on Craigslist -FIRST RED FLAG - he and i talk back and forth through text, and he even went as far as telling me other PAM's he had purchased...

This guy was pretty good... He even called me to confirm my first and last name!

So he seemed real, genuine, etc... Explains to me he lives in Miami but will be at a business convention in NIgeria??? and to send it to an address there. I then tell him i will send an invoice. He says no, he will just send me funds??? Kinda odd right? Ao he sends funds over, and upon first glance looks legit... WELL IT WAS NOT AT ALL. Take a look at the attached pic.

The headline alone is a dead giveaway, as Paypal would never use all caps and "***" in an email header.

Long story short i almost bought it and shipped a watch and would have been out over 7k. Glad i was smart about it however and lesson learned.
