I recieved this by email from an interest in my items off of Shpock selling site

The price is a good buy for me... please remove the advert and consider it sold as i am paying your full asking price i have done thorough check on the advert and i'm fine with it,sadly i would not be able to come personally to view or collect it due to house bound went through throat cancer surgery and couldn't talk more but will be ok soon but i have an agent that would help me to pick it up at your preferred location after you have received your money and i'll pay you via PayPal and pick up will start after you have cash your money ..if that is ok with you.
Where is the pick up location so that i can inform the agent about it now and send me your registered paypal email and name,so i can make arrangements for payment. I can also transfer from my paypal to your bank account. Kindly get back to me with your Sort code, Account number and Account name .

I replied and said I could contact PayPal to enquire she wanted 3 items but for security reasons would only transfer the final payment once I had paid £200 pounds to the courier account who would be picking the items up.

I could get in contact with PayPal every link I tapped on just took me to a random Enquiry email Address which I did use but got no reply from.

I decided to google her email address as there was 2 different ones from Shpock and this seemed weird, as one was coming up undeliverable too?
Then this information pinged up, thank god!
I am not going ahead with this obviously and am so grateful for these sort of information sites for these types of individual’s not to get away with this anymore OMG! It infuriates me that they are scamming so many poor unfortunate people out there every day it’s not on.

Since you’re here …
we have a small favour to ask. More people are visting Scamdex and Scamalot than ever but advertising revenues are falling fast and we have no 'product' to sell. And unlike many informational websites, we haven’t put up a paywall or membership barrier – we want to keep our site as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Scamdex/Scamalot websites takes a lot of time, money and hard work to keep running. We do this because we hate to see our fellow humans getting scammed out of their hard-earned money by low-lives.
