Re: Ricardo Scam

Just wanted to confirm another similar case. The flow is following.
Scammer sends you a pm on Ricardo with a gmail address with request to provide the buy-now price for your item. When you do so, he writes back with some shitty texts, like:
- Wie lange haben Sie es gehört?
- Was ist Ihre tatsächliche Preis
- Ich liebe ein Schnäppchen

when you reply again answering that, he writes that he want to buy item really fast and asks you for your paypal account.

At this moment I have stopped as I ve realised that it is a scam. He send me one more message saying that he is extremly keen on to have the item and have own transportation company/courier(!) what was extremly funny in my case, as the item I was selling was kind of hand-made art which is does not weight at all. Just to point that it was not an iphone or camera or any of those stuff-types.
So I believe it has to be kind of bot.
