I got it from him as well today,

From: Alex Rivera <alexrivera_137@outlook.com>
Date: 3/4/20 11:46 pm (GMT+08:00)

Thanks for getting back to me. I am okay with the price, and 100% optimistic it is in perfect condition.

I want this item as a gift for a relative of mine. We both graduated as students from the same varsity, recently we met during an alumni meeting but for now he has traveled overseas for a very important appointment.

His birthday is around the corner and I want you to deliver it to him via a reliable courier service.

Please respond and let me know if this is possible and I will provide you with details for the delivery.

I anticipate your response,

Alex

Thank you guys for reporting this, I hope more users will see it before doing something wrong.
The Corona situation has brought up waves of scams all over the Internet and it really pays off to have a critical attitude to everything that looks promising. As the saying goes: If it is too good to be true, it probably is.

Still alive this scammer.


Thanks for responding. I want to buy this item for my folk that was transferred to work for the United nations as a relief support instructor in west Africa as a result of the insurgency issue over there. I want you to deliver it via a reliable courier company with 3 to 5 days express service delivery.


My folk's wedding anniversary is coming up and I want to buy the item for my folk as a gift to remind my folk that we haven't forgotten about my folk who is far away from home and won't return anytime soon. Although it might be a used gift, but that doesn't matter, what matters most is the good intent, which is the act of love and generosity towards my folk from the bottom of my heart.

Let me introduce myself, I am a married individual with three lovely children and I am also a very good Christian. I am currently out of my country for an investment summit concerning the export & import of recycled produce and will be spending some time here.

Although, I haven't seen the item, and won't be able to see it as a result of my current location, I trust you and I believe the item is in good condition. Please you can send me pictures of the item for inspection just for me to be sure that I am right and you are trustworthy as I have thought within me.

I want you to do me a good favour by delivering the item with EMS express speedpost service 3 to 5 days delivery

I will pay SGD $200 for the delivery but you can visit the post office and inquire about the cost of delivery via Speedpost.

Below is the info and the address for the delivery;


Receiver: Mr Jones Igie
Address: 7 Tijani Salako Street, Bucknor, Isolo
State: Lagos
Country: Nigeria
Zip code: 23401

Please log on to www.speedpost.com.sg and check the cost of delivery to the destination written above.

Remember, I want it posted with 3 to 5 days express delivery. Kindly reply as soon as possible and let me have the total cost.

How can I get the money through to you? I prefer to pay you via bank to bank transfer because it is convenient, safe and very easy to transfer and receive money for the purchase of goods online, so if this is ok by you then please send me your full bank account information as it is written below;
