I was being scammed by some online con.
This is a bit of what happened...

I had managed to squeeze in a little daytime TV and woke up just in time before night fell upon me. It was only six o’clock, and with the wintery cold was pounding with hopeful vengeance. But I was unscathed, and went back online to se which of the two potential buyers managed to beat the post. Anna did, Anna Diana Solero. At least that is what the email from Amazon said.

But there was another email, a very worrying email. The sender wanted to know the condition of the mobile, but seeing as the mobile had been sold, I opted not to reply. But something was niggling my insides. It was the language. There were probably five sentences, but two of them were almost a verbatim copy of one of the previous emails. So I closed it and opened one of the earlier ones. After reading it carefully for about three minutes, leaving it and returning to re-read it again, my suspicion took the better of me. Fraud!

I wanted confirmation of the mail and so went back to log on to my Amazon sellers account and wrote directly to them telling them of my suspicion. It was getting rather late, so I went up to bed. Curiosity got the better of me and so first thing that Saturday morning I found myself logging onto my Yahoo email account only to be told that the transaction was indeed a genuine one and I should dispatch the said mobile within two business days.
