Tim Anthony using the user name stbuy contacted me yesterday with regards to buying my Kate Spade wallet and wristlet.
Is it still for sale? Email me to email@example.com to schedule meet up or shipment.
Ok...I'll take the wallet...I'm in USA but want to send it to someone
in Malaysia,Pls send me total price including postage & bank to bank
or Paypal is ok for payment....
I want option A,I've made the payment.....Do check your email for the
confirmation mail from Paypal....So kindly ship asap & send the
shipment receipt to Paypal for their verifications so they can process
and credit your account just as the normal procedure & also you can
check your junk mail in case the confirmation mail is there.
Have you shipped? Because i just received a notification from Paypal
about the transfer, Is it true that this is the first time you are
receiving a money transfer from usa your account is not yet
activated ?? I think this is what is delaying them to credit your
account, i'm not happy about this at all, because your account needs
to be activated before you can take the transfer from Paypal ,they has
debited the account activation fees which is 650sg$ from my
account...check your inbox and junk mail for the account activations
email from Paypal.
The 650sg$ is just a form of verification (As said by Paypal) it will
be credited back into your account with the 280sg$, so total you will
get in your account after you have send the 650sg$ to the posb account
provided and send the ibanking receipt to them is 280sg$ + 650sg$...
Pls send me the shipment tracking number as well so i can give to my wife!
I received a spoof email from PayPal with this email add firstname.lastname@example.org with the username as email@example.com saying that the amount has been credited to my account.
However I need to provide the shipping details by 24hrs in order to receive the money.
After replying to that email with the tracking number, I received another mail from Paypal to inform me that I have to credit $650 to this account number as my Paypal account has never received any payment from US, which I find it very odd so I called PayPal customer service and was advised right away to retrieve item back as no amount has been transferred to my account.
Do take note that Paypal would address you via name of account holder not "valued customer". Stay Alert ladies..
This is the email from the fake Paypal

The Paypal Team
He is still active. This time using
This same guy contacted me 2 weeks ago, under the username: 'skybeauty212', and then again last Friday, with a new username: 'stbuy'. Both accounts have since been suspended, but he's been at this for years, so he'll probably just keep creating new accounts on DeluxeMall..... It would be helpful if people could update this thread with his latest username and email address.
This was the private message that he sent me on DeluxeMall:
"Hi! Is it still for sale? Email me to firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule meet up or shipment."
Before I read this thread, I didn't know he was a scammer, so I emailed him, although I did ask why his 'skybeauty212' account got suspended, and he told me that it was because of a copyright of his profile pic. The name attached to his email address was "T A".
In our email correspondence, he told me pretty much the same thing that he told several other members:
"It's ok! Anyway, Let me take the Chloe 'Mary' satchel,Will that be ok
for 1,000sg$? I'm currently overseas but want to send it to someone in
Malaysia,Let me total price including postage & bank to bank or Paypal
is ok for payment....
