Thanks for the message, I must tell you I intend to give my wife a
surprise with the purchase of the piece. Also If you'd like to know,
I'm relocating to Seattle, Washington usa soon but am a bit pressed for time
and our wedding anniversary is fast approaching. So I'm trying to
gather some good stuff to make this event a surprise one. I am buying both
i have solved these puzzle and expectation 110 ,000 inr each of
220,000 inr as a
gifts to her.I'm okay with the price, I think it's worth it anyway, so
I'll make payment to you via wire transfer, As regarding shipping, i
will include the shipping cost of item to you .

I would have come to purchase the piece myself but, at the moment, am
on training voyage to the North Atlantic Ocean (I'm an ocean engineer)
with new hires who are fresh school graduates and won't be back
for another couple of weeks.

PS: In the meantime, kindly get back to me with your address, bank
name , account holder name ,account number and iban /swift code plus
shipping cost to Seattle, Washington, Usa , so I can wire the funds to your
account right away.

Regards , Edward .

Hope you are good. Thanks for the details which I've noted down, My
wife handles the family credit card/bank issues, and in order not to
leave any clue to her for the surprise, I've contacted a client of
mine to issue out a check which will include my shipping agent fees to
you, But courtesy demand i must first appeal to your self interest
and ask for your help in remitting the overage (after deducting your
fee for the piece) to the shipping agent as soon as the check clears.

I would have handled this much differently if I'd been at
home but am a bit pressed for time as our anniversary is fast
approaching and do not have access to a lot of cash over here to
expedite this transaction.... trying to kill two birds with a stone.
kindly deduct any IRS tax incurred on the overage before giving the
balance the shipping agent. they are not sending any bill or hold you
responsible for the payment of my shipping contract with them. I am
really sorry for the mixup and will appreciate if you get back to me
asap to know if i can entrust you
with this transaction.

Many thanks and talk to you soon,

The Scammer wants to send check

Make no mistake, the cheque will be counterfeit and any attempt to obtain funds from it may hold you liable to attempted, or accomplice to fraud. At best you can expect your bank to recoup the full amount when the cheque is returned to you Unpaid.
