    iPhowned 5...Scamming the Scammer

    So I had one of my iPhone 5 listed for sale on CraigsList after picking it up on the 21st and got contacted buy a guy named Jason Cole who wanted to buy it...well just read the following conversation to find out the rest.

    If you want the cliff notes version then read here...

    Guy contacts me to buy iphone.
    States he is in MA, wants me to ship to Nigeria
    I tell him I will only ship in US
    He gives me another address
    We agree to $1300
    Buyer sends fake "paypal" payment to my email address
    Buyer states that the new way he paid releases money once tracking is given
    I decided to make a iPhone to send him
    Click here to see the phone that was sent

    ***UPDATE***
    I will be sending another phone to this guy in Nigeria soon. Debating on a "estimated value" so he will get hit with a huge import tax. Will play around with this guy this coming week and see what I can get
