...selling the usual laptop on the London forum, and in one of them the recipient is a seemingly ordinary American woman from Iron Hills, Michigan. I've searched her through Pipl and found her Facebook page, and she seems absolutely nothing out of the ordinary. It's not a fake FB page, 300-odd friends, works as a cleaner at a motel, etc.

It is definitely a scam, the fake PayPal emails have arrived and such, and I have been in contact with a Mr. H3nry M1ke who wants me to ship the item to the Michigan address.

Is it literally a case of "it can take anyone to be a scammer" or is she somehow innocent in all of this?

I'm assuming the IP resolves to Michigan as well so its not a highjacked account. It's possible she thinks she's doing a work from home job buying items on Craigslist and she's an innocent victim. Probably best to do the typical protocal and PM the info to a mod.

The email is just a Gmail account, however this is in the name of M1ke H3nry, not the lady in question. I'll forward the information to a mod. Thanks bravo. Smile
