This is a link to another version of this Nigeria / Ebay scam:      http://empegbbs.com/ubbthreads/showflat.php/Cat/0/Number/281186/Main/281141/


E-bay buyer claims that they are from Wisconsin and want to buy a cell phone for their daughter who is attending school in Nigera. This ebay buyer is claiming to be temporarily in  the UK.  They send an email that looks just like an official Pay Pal mail (see below) saying that the fund are on hold until a pay pal consultant confirms that the item has shipped.  The paypal consulant has an email address going to the domain - consultant.com  which you will see is not a valid business that would handle this type of transaction.



         I have made out my payment to you for this item purchase ,So check your mail for the new confirmation mail from paypal i also add and additional payment of $100.00 for the shipment charges and the remaining for the stress of going to send the item,also don't forget to send me the shipment tracking number so that my daughter can know when the item will reach her.

You've got cash!
