I saw a deal for a LED TV for $560 that seemed almost too good to be true. I looked the company up and they seemed legitimate, so I pursued the deal. I received this email:

I followed these instructions and sent the money. I received another email saying that I would receive the package in 2 days. It wasn't until I tried to track the package and I saw no update to the tracking status that I realized I got completely screwed. This was a total ripoff and now I'm out $560. Turns out a lot of people have been nailed by this.

    Hi,

    The MacBook Pro is still available, but I'm currently in London, United Kingdom. Because of the financial crisis, I lost my job in United States and I had to come back to my family.
    I don't need the laptop anymore so I tried to sell it locally, but with no luck. I was offered silly money for the laptop because of issues like - it is a US version or the warranty doesn't work here or that it has a US keyboard format. That's why I'm trying my luck in the US.
    I hope you are still interested. The laptop was bought brand new from Best Buy a 10 weeks ago. I have attached some pics with it to this email.
    About the laptop I can say it is 10 weeks old and it is in good shape, no scratches, no dents as you can see from the pics I've sent. Included in the $580 price is everything the laptop came with when it was new, including the original manuals and warranty papers. The warranty is fully transferable to the new owner.
    The laptop is here with me in UK.
    I tried to be as thorough as I could with the presentation so you can have all the info if you decide to go ahead and buy it.
    Please get back to me and let me know if you like the laptop if you're really interested in buying it.

    Thanks,
    Bianca

    Bianca, thank you very much for getting back to me so quickly. This is a very very good deal!

    Do you have an idea how much it will cost for a US delivery, Savannah, GA?

    I am curious if there maybe an option of 1/2 this week on Wed. and the rest next Wed.?

    If this is not an option, I will certainly explore other means before end of this week, and let you know for sure.

    Thank you,
    Aaron Danker

    Hi Aaron,

    Well, I found a way to sell the laptop that will be safe for both of us. It's a worldwide delivery company called TNT. They have a service that will allow you to test the laptop before I receive my payment.
    Please go to the TNT website below and read their procedure so we can be on the same page:

    http://shiptnt.uk.com/express.london.depot.overseas.transactions.html

    I will pay the TNT shipping fee.
    If you agree to their terms please send me your name and address and I will start the delivery procedure.

    Thanks,
    Bianca

    Hi,

    The MacBook Air is still available, but I'm currently in London, United Kingdom. Because of the financial crisis, I lost my job in United States and I had to move at my sister in London.

    I hope you are still interested. The laptop was bought brand new from Apple a 3 months ago. I have attached some pics with it to this email.
    About the laptop I can say it is 3 months old and it is in good shape, no scratches, no dents as you can see from the pics I've sent.
