I am selling an item and got this, it looks like a scam to me.
Hello,
Thanks for the mail,I am Ok with the item and i will like to inform you that iam goona send you the payment in cash although i wanted to come for the inspection before but i can not make it anymore just because we are not in the same state.....
I will like you to send your contact address and name to me so i can make the payment via BidPay home delivery this service will come to your home and deliver the cash to you.
I will include 50$ for the shipping fee via USPS/EMS to my friend destination so i want you to get to me with your address now so i can make the payment today
Regards
Rossy

Just give all your money to the nearest charity NOW. It's either they get it or someone else does.
