Scam Email: Cody Morgan

So many things about this scam are what we see all the time. Their questions are meant to throw the potential off thinking they'll use a legitimate means of paying. But as the victim begins to converse with the scammer, the story will migrate back into their "model" - overpaying and asking the difference be sent to the shipper via Western Union (and the "shipper" just turns out to be the scammer at the other end - there is no shipper).

  1. This exact email and name has contacted me as well. Even though I have told him that he will be overpaying by getting the items from Australia rather than locally, he has demanded pricing. I have refused to accept credit card.
