i've posted an ads to sell my fon.
then, someone approached me thru e-mail and wanna buy my fon
i was kinda eager coz i need a fast cash at the moment.
she was quite convincing ok.
the best part is convincing me with her fake barclays bank personnel...
she almost got me when suddenly she told me to send the fon to nigeria?
she said she lives at USA.
workin at UK
and suddenly she wants to send her son a birthday present at NIGERIA who had a school activities there.
can u even imagine whats available at NIGERIA that makes her son wanna go there?
using my logical thinking, thats quite impossible.
Its not cheap sending a parcel to anywhere ok.
especially using DHL.
i know whats the price coz i had some experienced dealing with them
it takes 400bucks just to send a 0.5kg box to nigeria ok!!!
and FYI, my phone does not costs more than the price for courier.
i loled all the way round and tell her i refuse to sell my phone to her.
but the best part is, she's willing to 'pay' me extra for that.
seriously her offer is quite tempting because the price she want to pay is tripled the amount needed.
but i refuse and try to get her back by saying that she need to send me half the amount of money and after that i will send her the parcel.
i gave her my empty maybank acc but nothing happened.
u know what, certain things are always too good to be truth.
i just ignore her after that.
suddenly, she buzz me on my gtalk.
here's the conversation.
dont be fooled people,
i am acting innocent there...
