    Here's the invoice for your item.


    • Current status: Payment pending. Purchase protection granted.

    Dear (my ebay name)

    After verifying the trustworthiness of the seller hondapartsunlimited( 21570)
    and the availability of the merchandise for immediate shipping, we have approved your
    transaction and offered you as the buyer, full purchase protection for the amount you
    agreed on with the seller.


    Complete your eBay transaction in 5 easy steps:
    *************************************************
    1-Buyer and seller agree on the transaction terms and a selling price.
    2-Seller contacts eBay with the transaction details. eBay accepts the transaction and offers
    purchase protection to the buyer (if the transaction is declined, no further action is required
    from either the buyer or the seller).
    3-The buyer sends payment. After the payment is cleared, the seller must notify eBay.
    Buyer will send the payment details directly to the seller email address. The seller has three
    business days to send the buyer and eBay the tracking number of the shipment. If no tracking
    number is provided, a full refund is immediately sent to the buyer;
    4-Buyer receives the merchandise and has five days to inspect it. If it is complete and as
    described, the buyer should accept the merchandise. If he refuses the merchandise, the buyer
    must ship the merchandise back to the seller within three business days.
    5-After the inspection period is over, the buyer must contact eBay with the result of the
    inspection. If the buyer refuses the merchandise, the refund will be sent to the buyer after the
    tracking number for the returned shipment is verified.
    •To enjoy the purchase protection, you must send the payment by the insured payment method below.
    Attention: Sending the payment by any other method will void this transaction and your right to refund.
    Details and instructions of this transaction:
    • The following item(s) are protected in this eBay transaction:

    Item name:integra civic LENSO 3 piece 17" wheel wheels rim rims
    Item price:US $250.00 / Amount insured
    Shipping price:Ready to ship / The Item price includes shipping and insurance fees.
    Payment:pending
    Seller's verified payment address:
    Casey Peterson
    43 Bickerton Street
    Liverpool, L17 8UZ
    United Kingdom

    Buyer's shipping address:
    my addy
    Date of verification: Feb-19-2008
    Payment must be sent by: Western Union Money Transfer
    Next step to be taken: The buyer must send the payment to the seller



    • Note: Because the fee to send a Western Union Money Transfer is high, compared
    to other methods of payment, we have arranged with the seller to refund this fee when
    the item is sent to the buyer.

    • Our responsibility is to make every option safe. This seller is verified by our services
    and you can have all the trust in his requests. However, Western Union Money Transfer
    is designed mainly for sending cash to friends and family in need, so telling them you are
    sending the money to an eBay seller will prevent your money transfer to go through and
    you will be unable to complete the transaction.

    • Complete your eBay transaction. Payment instructions:


    Go to one of them and send the payment to the verified name and address of the seller.

    • Once the payment was sent, email the seller the following information:
    1) 10 digit MTCN (Money transfer control number).
    2) Exact sender's name on file with Western Union.
    3) Your street address on file with Western Union.
    4) City and country where you sent the money from.
    5) Amount sent.
    Seller's email address: crdunge@gmail.com


    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
    my response, fuck off.

    Western union, watch out for this guys.

    Steve, you missed his entire point.

    He was clearly in correspondence with this person for three weeks to reverse the funny on the scam artist.

    Common sense says he picked up on the discrepancy between the addresses and ran with the routine.

    i got at least 6 or seven when i posted items on Craigslist. Those are easy to spot. They always have the same story. Cashiers check payment and they will send someone up to pick up the item.blah blah blah.

    I tell them to send me pics of their naked wives or daughters......and their pic with id next to them and social number. i never get a response. huh, I wonder if it was the naked pics request.

    last one I got was about 3 weeks ago, I knew it was a scam from the start from the obvious sense of "its too good to be true" so I played with him for a good week, told him I had shipped the money from my paypal credit account....ahhh how much that guy entertained me....
