"Send me the list again so that i can choose , you don't need to worry about the shipping, my shipping agent will coming be to pick the paintball at your place after you send the remaining balance to there director.
Kindly get back to me ,thanks and God bless."

That was the last email I got from her, asking what she wanted. And where I need to ship it too.

That's the other shoe of the scam being dropped. I've seen reports of this with other online sales deals.

For some fun you could send her back an email decrying the scammers that are out there these days and that for your own protection you'll have to process the money orders and hold the funds until you're sure the money orders clear the originating bank. Tell them 6 to 8 weeks just to be sure for BOTH your protections. Then watch how fast they loose intrest in your sale.

Keep the emails for quite a while. Someone may want to look at the IP addresses. Most likely they've been redirected all over but it couldn't hurt to hold them for now.

Yea didn't this happen to someone else on here with money orders... I am pretty sure someone on MCB got scammed out of quite a fair amount of money is a very similar fashion.

Simple solution, go to Home Depot and pick up a bag of quickcrete. Blend in Talfuchre's suggestion and mail it postage due. That way they will have to pay postage on 80 lbs of sh*t.

Chances are paintballguns are a non-no in China as they really aren't into civil liberties per say. Walmart does have stores in China, but I doubt if the sell money orders. Even if they do, I'm sure Walmart has an automated system that keeps screwups down to a minimun. I sold some items to a guy in Hongkong via Ebay, but he payed by Paypal including the extra shipping to EMS mail it there. In this case my suggestion in the previous post still stands, mail her 80lbs of turds, postage due.
