if in some way this isn't a ripoff, I'm sorry. but unless you're an idiot, you'll at least ask for pictures with some sort of proof (a piece of paper saying "today's date is xxx"). This kind of stuff will tell you right away if the item is legitimate or not. If they can't take a simply piece of paper with something you've asked them to write, then you should stop negotiations immediately.
I still have the product
My name is Sandra Cooper and I am now in London UK
I hope you are still interested and we can make the deal happen right away.
Obviously we need a safe way to complete this deal that will allow us to make sure we receive what we are after.
I have found a way for us to complete the deal fast (3 days) and easy.
The solution is a worldwide delivery company called TNT. TNT is similar
to Fedex, DHL or UPS and they will provide assistance in hadling the
payment and delivery of the product
With this procedure I will only receive the payment for the product
after you will receive it and see that it is just like I said it is.
