Has anyone rec'd an email like this ?
I'm selling my 'Vair through the VV Classifieds, and I get this email
someone claiming I have a buyer in England.
The catch is that I have to pay for the shipping first. Right ! OK,
I send the money ? To a PO box, you say ? Oh, OK. How much ?
Anyway, here is the email I got :
