Please reproduce the full email (with your own details removed) and the header if possible.

And yes, it looks like a scam.

it looks like the beginnings of a fake check scam. But there is no incriminating evidence so far.

Please post other details, such as the email headers (removing your own info first), we can give you more details after you give details.

Welcome to Scamwarners modaboda,

Yes, it is a scam. There are clues in the messages he sent you. Please sell your ring face to face with a buyer in a public place with cash.

This scam can be used by sending a fake check, flashed bank account transfers or fake Paypal payments.

Please contacta moferatorstor if you have a question or information about this post.



Please do not tell the scammer he is posted here.


Please remember the fallen. https://www.odmp.org/
