From: Shirley Truman (firstname.lastname@example.org)When told only paypal payments would be accepted, here was the scammer response:
will like to know if you sell your art internationally as your artwork caught my interest and i am willing to purchase some piece therefore do you have the capacity to ship abroad Estonia and accept Credit Card as a form of payment?
I anticipate your swift response with your updated webpage.
From: Shirley Truman [email@example.com]Playing dumb.... also cleverly inserted the website url in the subject line so they could keep track of their "presonalization" of the exchange and not tip the potential victim off too soon that something was not right. Tssk tssk, fake Shirley Truman....

Thank you for the swift response,
I can only pay with giving you my credit card number and expiry because my URL would not allow me to complete any transaction of such online.
I want you to get back to me asap so that we can know how to proceed .
