I know lots of people have seen this before, but I hadn't experienced an attempted outright scam before (aside from phishing emails, etc.)
I put a lens for my Bronica GS-1 up for sale in a couple places around the web and got a typical response asking about shipping and expressing interest. We settled on the total and I told him I'd ship FedEx with signature confirmation and Paypal only.
The next day I got an email from "Paypal" saying the payment had been made and it was in escrow until the lens has been shipped. Obvious scam. I also got a separate email from him saying the payment has been sent and gave me his home address in Georgia.
I'm halfway tempted to ship him one of my baby's used diapers or something
It's just frustrating that people go this low. It's not a high priced item or anything. Bah.. [forestgump] that's all I have to say about that [/forestgump]
