State: Osun state. Zip Code: 234036. Country: Nigeria I found a a threads about the same scammer: Thread I then told him the only reason he was asking me to ship to Nigeria was because PayPal doesn't insure their and neither does USPS, I asked him for a different address here is my address below 54 Stirling Road, Talbot Woods, Bournemouth, DorsetEngland, BH3 7JH. am not at home now because away on official business and the package will not be received by anyone,that why i want to pls ship the phone directly to my son in Africa,i'll pay the cost of the shipping along with the cost of the phone.ok,pls get back to me as soon as possible,chris I told him he was a well-known scammer across the web what do you mean by that,my son school in a university there called OAU (OBAFEMI AWOLOWO UNIVERSITY) so would you call me a scammer,if you knew that you weren't selling from the start,i thought you were a serious but it seem you are not.so pls stop this act of yours and get serious...chris I decided to stop emailing him there because I had had enough fun for one day Just thought I would share the story, and warn anyone who does not know already: do not ship to Africa!
