dealings with Sheila Dedrick??

She (he) sent me email on item I had posted on here, wants to buy it for friend in Europe, will send me a Travelers Cheque on Bank of America.
Of course it will not be shipped until BA clears the cheque. Anyone else had any dealings with this person? "old Bill"

Sounds like a take-off on the scam that has been running for several years.
It IS a scam...

I had the same experience. The scammer declared that he/she was a Christian, and American citizen and trustworthy. ... you betcha..
The clinching tip off was that everything had be be done in a hurry.
I responded to the person demanding that all payment MUST be done via Western Union. All of a sudden there was no hurry and no "Sheila".

I went along with the scam just to get the travllers cheque for framing, with no intention sending anything. hope I don't get myself into a bind doing this.
check for 3500 dollars for item only worth 250.00
