Looks like an ebay/CL scam. Don´t know what to do with it. I suggest putting them into "Other Types of African Scams" and piling ebay/CL scams there.
There can be no doubt this is a Nigerian criminal who wants goods sent to himself in Nigeria.
But why all the hickhack? Is the PayPal account he uses hacked, hence the reason for a different delivery address?
Would LOVE to know that address...
And avoiding all contact ("phone down") is not to reveal real identity I guess.

["Of course", poster doesn´t react to explain more so we have to figure it all out by ourselves again.] :thinking:

The PayPal account is most likely hijacked.

Yes, lets put it in other types of scams.

Hello, I found this post through a google search of Shirley Mae Atkinson, so I'm sorry that it's a little OT. I am guessing the same people run craigslist scams, because that is where I got that person's name. I got an email from someone name Chris Brunt (Cbrunt7@gmail.com) who said he was interested in the RV I'm selling on Craigslist. After a little back and forth, he says he's going to pay for it through paypal, and then I realize, obviously, he's a scammer and just wasted my time.

But he sent me a fake paypal "payment received" email, saying I received $600 over my asking price, but that I needed to send $500 to this western union agent:

Agent's Info:
Name- SHIRLEY MAE ATKINSON
City- SPRINGFIELD
State- MISSOURI
Zipcode- 65807
Country- USA

I already reported all this to the IC3, but I just thought it was interesting that the same people are scamming everywhere. :\

I had a Wedding Dress on Craiglist for sale and posted my cell phone to have people contact my via phone if interest in the dress.
I recieved the following text from the person about my dress;
this is Megan Watkins i saw the posting of your wedding dress on craiglist and i am interested in buying it so i would like to know the condition and how much is your last asking price.

Well I did post how much I wanted for the dress and the condition of it on Craglist.
My scammer yet sent another text;
I want to purchase your dress soon as possible for my daugther before he Engagement/Wedding ceremony which is fast approching. Whats the dress real size? I will be paying through a Bank Certified check so that you can have cash in hand before shipping the dress...I will wait for your bank to confirm and clear the check before we proceed with the shipment. I will need your name and address to mail the check to you and will be adding extra.
Megan Watkins phone number is
16056446059 I did google the number and found other post where people had text from the same person over a wedding dress.
this the website I found
http://whocallsme.com/Phone-Number.aspx/6056446059" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
and also this site tells infromation too

"Please take a few moments and read my email carefully, I know it is long, but because I received too many emails, I will explain all the details about the car and the transaction.

For pictures and details please visit my site: jeepwra (dot) page (dot) tl
To view the pictures please replace (dot ) with .

At the moment I'm stationed at Hancock Field AGS an US Military AFB in Syracuse, NY. making final preparations before deploying to Iraq with the U.S. Convoy

The car is already at our Military Logistic Department form Fort Belvoir, U.S. Army base near Bethesda, MD, crated and ready to go. The Logistic Department :mrgreen: (military will NOT DO THIS) will deliver the car to your home. Since the car is in a military base, with no access you can not go there and take it, only the Logistics Department can deliver it, because the car is in their custody.

Shipping may take anywhere between 1-2 business days depending on the destination.. All documents you need for ownership, :mrgreen: loog book , manuals and bill of sale will be provided along with the vehicle.
For the payment I would like to use Yahoo as a third party. They will keep your money into a protection account until you get the vehicle and will release it to me after inspection period is over and you agree to keep the car. So, this is not a blind transaction, you can see the car before committing to buy and to eliminate any concerns you will have 3 days to inspect it. If you decide not to keep it Yahoo will refund you the money, no questions asked, and shipping back will be my concern. I think this is more than fair for both of us.

I'll start the official procedure, and Yahoo will contact you about this. If you are interested in buying it just mail me back with:
- Your Full Name - Required by Yahoo (You'll receive important guidelines + instructions from them.)
- Your Shipping Address and Phone Number - Required by the Logistics Department (They will call you with delivery/pickup instructions 1 day ahead so you can communicate what time schedule work best for your to receive the car)

Again I want to point out that because I am going to Iraq this sale is my top priority and I am looking after a fast transaction, with no delays. That is why I decided to lower the price, to avoid wasting time with negotiations and find a buyer as soon as possible.

Thanks, hope to do business with you soon!"
