faster is to instruct him to procure a cashiers
check and mail it to you on the name,address and telephone
number you want on the check and you know it takes
24hrs for a cashiers check to clear in the U.S.But i
would want to know if i can trust you to send my
balance to me via MONEY GRAMS INTERNATIONAL MONEY TRANSFER in PARIS FRANCE after the money must have cleared in your bank to enable
me prepay the shipping company here so that they can
instruct their office in the U.S to come and pick

I'm stringing it along and waiting for my fake check to come -- can't wait to take a picture of it along with a certain gesture to post in a reply message! Don't these guys realize the fraud warnings are posted everywhere?
