    have him send you the money via paypal 1st. Make sure it goes into your bank before you send it, some scammers will pay you, then have the person ship it, then talk to paypal saying he changed his mind or something, so he gets the product AND his money back. Anyways, it should take 3-4 days before it goes into your bank, then just ship it out.

    If you are really paranoid, you can use an escrow service.

    I completely understand the nature of such good-hearted people as yourself my friend.

    And in light of your integrity and honesty, i would like to take this opportunity to
    let you in on a SUPER real estate deal.
    I was going to offer it to the general public first, but seeing as how you are
    such an honest, caring, civic-minded citizen, it would be a good deed on my part
    to allow you to make me the first offer, kind sir.

    IT JUST SO HAPPENS that I have this bridge for sale in the Arizona desert......

    Cashiers checks are NOT always good. Brian Wong got one that wasn't any good and a guy on SSM got screwed out of 10k from one.

    Well FFciv, seeing as how you intuitively (sp?) figured out i was speaking Spanish in my last post.....

    ....... i would like to offer you and your equally intelligent co-hort (the guy who keeps on getting scammed) the opportunity of a lifetime.
    Im starting this new clothing line in which each piece of clothing is made ENTIRELY from the world's finest threads available....

    The one quality that makes this fabric so wonderfull, is that stupid people cannot see it.  Only true intelligent persons such as yourself will be able to see just how spectacular and wonderfull the clothes look like.

    to the average simpleton, it will look like you are wearing nothing at all....
