I posted a few of the baskets on the facebook marketplace. I had someone inquire about buying one and I sent him more information and this is what I got back. I don't think so buddy!! He e-mailed me from [email protected]

thanks for your reply.i want you to give me the list of all the items you have for sale including their prices may be i will like to buy more of it.i agree to pay the amount you want as final asking price of the item.i am purchasing this item for my boss.my mode of payment is Cashier Check.my boss will include my commission and the shipping fees in your payment.that means the amount on the payment will be more than the item fees.then you must deduct your fees and send back the rest fund.do not worry your self about the shipment.i do have a private shipping company that will come and pick up the item at your address the next day you get the payment.email me the full name and address to send out the Check Payment.let me know if you understand that the amounst that will be on the payment will be more than your item fees.i want you to close the advert right away.i will add extra $20 in your payment for doing that.let me know if you agree to deduct your fees and send back the left fund as my commission/shipping. make sure you email me the final asking price you want for the item in your reply. Anyway below are the questions i have for you.

1)Is the item in good condition?

2)Can you make sure you get the Cashier Check cash at your bank in one business day and send the left fund the same day?

3)Do you agree to deduct your item fees and send back the left fund as my commission and shipping fees the day you get the payment?

4)Do you understand that the shipping company will come and pick the item at your address the next day you receive the payment?

Avon reps get things like that often. I used to get people saying they wanted , like, 30 skin care items (at $32 each) and 50 oils and could I ship to them and they'll send me money direct.

IDIOTS out there for sure!
