He was on the edge, but the free shipping sealed the deal I'm sure.
Thanks for sharing Justin.

Been getting emails from "him" as well.
Anytime someone asks me for my "final price", and then willingly adds an additional $50.00 to it for no apparent reason, all signs point to "Scam".

Yeah he contacted me about purchasing an animal today wanting to use the exact same payment "method". Obvious Scammer set-up, but this is good information for those not familiar with payment scams like this. Definitely a scammer.

He tried with me too. Got him to send a check, sent 2750 for a 1200 dollar snake. Now he's assured me, without doubt, that the check cleared and would I please send him his extra 1500 back. I told him to come here and I'll give him the cash...along with his birthday present!

Then, just this morning, he sent me a new email, asking if the animal is still available, and that he would send me an extra 50 if I took the listing down and saved it for him - just like his first email. He's probably in Nigeria, judging by certain flags I see in his communications. But he doe's have a US cell number, which is unusual for these crooks to expose. Sure wish he'd come here to collect his money!

It is a text mail subscriber, just tried to call it. 765 722 2819
It's a dead end for sure, just wish the authorities would do something about these crooks

Just had to deal with scammer today! Asking for final price and willing to add $50 for holding animals.

He says he'll add 50, but with me he added 1500, hoping I'd send him the money when his fake check bounced. It appeared to be a bank check, but
it's a fraud.
