Hi i was on craigslist selling my ipod and a guy said
hello seller, i want to know is the item for sale and how much are you
asking for it?
Thanks for the fast response actually i was guessing a gift to
buy for my cousin,who is based in West Coast Africa as a wedding
anniversary gift,and while browsing Craigslist, i saw what you have
for sale and found it quite nice as a gift. I am willing to offer $250
for the item, including shipping cost via USPS Post express mail. I
will be paying through PayPal, because its the safest means of online
payment.Kindly get back to me with your PayPal email and full name for
me to make the payment.
Hope to read from you soon
here is the shipping address below
Name: Precious Akukwe
Address:17 Cardoso street
so get the item shipped out and get back to me with the tracking number asap.
and i had believed him cause i hadent really heard of scams so i actually sent the ipod earlier and im going to try and stop it tommorrow.
but he started saying he wants the tracking number which was used to let paypal know and they would give me the money.
here is the first email
Notification of an Instant Payment Received from warren jay ([email protected])
TO: 1 recipient
PayPal Confirmation Email Using Echeck Method (Transaction ID:3W492537HE3468708)
TO: 1 recipient
Dear [email protected],
This mail Confirms that Warren Jay has made and sent to You the Sum of $250.00 (USD) for sure using PayPal . But the fund $250.00 (USD) from Warren Jay PayPal Account Credit card will appear to your ([email protected])"PayPal Account" after the Reference Shipment Information/Tracking Number is Received Or gotten from you. And below is your Confirmation/Transaction ID in which the fund has been made by him.
Your Confirmation/Transaction ID: 3W492537HE3468708
PayPal purchases and Funds made using Instant Transfer or an available balance may take up to 24 hours or more than to be Transferred and to be Credited to the Seller's PayPal Account if Shipment Information is not gotten in time since the Fund has been Approved and Processed.
Well your buyer has made the payment for sure but it goes with the ECheck PayPal payment method and that's why it will not be Credited to your PayPal Account Immediately Until the Shipment Information/Tracking Number Is Received.
And as a Bonafide Client and PayPal Member that uses PayPal for Transactions who is a Verified Account Holder ''He Or She'' needs a Preferential treatment. So in that Case PayPal wishes to Inform you that Her Account has been deducted from the Sum of $250.00 USD which will be Credited to Your Account after when we must have gotten the Shipment Information/Tracking Number from you.
And it could take 2-3 Business Days Or more than before your Account will be Credited if we didn't get the Shipment Information in time from you, So we Strongly advice you to mail out the Merchandise She has paid you for and Send to us the Estimated Number of Days of Arrival of the Shipment so we can Credit Your account Immediately. Send all Shipment Information's to us at:([email protected]) and include all relevant information's, specifically your order number above (Confirmation/Transaction ID).
- AJ Zmudosky
N/B: Endeavor to mail out the Merchandise immediately that your payment has been Confirmed by the PayPal Team and it will reflect in your PayPal Account Recent Activity List if Shipment Information is received from you, and we expect you to send the Shipment Information to us ASAP for verification purpose.
Thank you for using PayPal!
The PayPal Team.

Welcome to Eater, scammerhaterrrrr!
I'm sorry about the circumstances that bring you here.
First off - you're not stupid. People fall for different scams every day. Some of them are Doctors and Lawyers. You say that you had no idea that these scams existed, so what chance did you have when you were contacted by a criminal who has probably had a lot of scamming experience?
Don't give him the tracking number or any other information. I hope that you are able to stop the delivery.
Edited to add:
To help to keep you safe, please remove your name and email address from your post.

Unfortunately the reason they ask for USPS priority mail is that once it leaves the post office it CAN NOT be recalled. UPS and FED EX track the package in many stages along the way and it can be recalled.
USPS does not do this.
I baited one guy once and kept telling him that I was going to send it by Fed Ex. HE was very angry that I was going to send it in that fashion and kept telling me that " he paid for the better shipping "
Stupid moron does not understand thatr Fed EX IS the better shipping
Looks like you may have lost it, BUT try the post office anyway
