What would you do??? Questionable email.

I just got this email....

Hi,

I'm interesting with your Parker Nitefly Mahogany and I want to buy it without bidding.
How much the estimate total cost of the order including FedEx shipping fees to Jakarta, Indonesia?
About the payment, I prefer to use VISA/Mastercard directly to you. You can use your credit card machine or borrow from your partners who have it to process the card payment.
If you agree with me then we can continue our deal.
Please advise and confirm me as soon as possible and I'll provide you with the credit card details to proceed with the payment next.

Regards,
Nurila Andesita

I think Indonesia is an ebay 'dificult' area, one to be very wary of... Some folks put in their ads that they will sell to anywhere in the world BUT that area...

It's a scam. You might as well just send it to them as a gift.

What he's not telling you is that the card he will be using does not belong to him. That's why he doesn't care how much he pays. Cuz he won't be paying for it! For some reason there are tons of stolen CC numbers in Indonesia. You know, like there are all those tragically dead heads of state in Nigeria and their families want you to help them get $43,000,000 (FORTY-THREE MILLION DOLLARS) out of the country...

Nurila Andesita's credit woes

Poor Nurila Andesita:
He seems to be having trouble buying anything - we've been batting emails to and fro about a camera of mine he wants to buy, too. Apparently, he'll only take it if he can use his credit card . . . he suggests I get a friend of mine to clear it for him. Won't use PayPal, bank transfer, cheque, money order, traveller's cheque . . .
