    Ok and I answered it that he would have to use BIN and that the money order would have to be in USD ...ok now this is the second letter I got from him after I responded!


    Hello,
    Thanks for the mail,i just want to tell you that is my client responsibility to take care of the shiping of the item but is not in UK that why he say that is going to add extra funds on the CHECK and once you cash it you will help him to wire it to the shipping that will come for the pick up of the item at your house.So i will like to ask you if i can trust you over this excess fund on the CHECK. can you wire the money the same day you receive the CHECK. ? So if you can do this pls get back to me with your info like Name,Address with your phone number.Your answer to this will give me a directive to instruct my client to issue out your payment asap.I will be awaiting your reply now.
    Regards

    I've gotten these before & reported them to ebay. Basically, they're trying to get your address & phone number so they can try hacking into your ebay & paypal accounts. Report whoever sent this to you...is my advice.

    "I would like YOU to send me your name and address and phone number FIRST and then send your check!" hehehehe

    Hahaha, I got one kinda close a while ago! They said they wanted one of my items for a wedding gift for a friend. They offered to send me extra money in the check or money order and wanted me to put "cash" inside the vase they purchased and then wanted me to send it out of the country to the people who were on their honeymoon. They offered to send me like 50 bucks extra for my trouble, and then wanted me to send them what ever change was left over in the shipping they sent me to be sent back to them through pay pal. I was thinking about it, but it almost seemed like they were starting to harrass me to get me to do it. I reported them and the next thing I know they were no longer a registered user any more.
