Quoting Mrs. Reynolds:" Yeh basically HE sent you the email pretending to be from paypal saying he paid you, and that you wont ... [snip!] ... that you wont get the money until you ship it, so you ship him a free phone. Email him back and tell him to go smurf himself lol"
i'd told him we wouldn't ship it until we got paid so when it said that they wanted the tracking number before the payment was released it struck me as odd. he'd asked us to take the ad off CL too which i told DH we wouldn't do until the phone was no longer in our possession.
i'm just glad I'M the one who was dealing with the payment end of the transaction and not DH; he may have actually sent it without having the payment received and then we'd not only be out shipping fees but also not have the phone! once we hear back from the fraud department (if in fact is IS fraudulent) i'm changing the listing on CL (and also changing everything that went along with it)
