As soon as people start throwing life details around as excuses for not checking emails, or not addressing details, Spidey is right. They have time to tell you where to western union the money though... and text mail is a free phone app you can use to talk on a cell you don't have a plan for. As long as you are in a free network. People who can't afford a cell phone can't afford a row boat, let alone a Cig.

Looks like I was wrong and my trust in all things American is misplaced.

Looks like he has a lot on his hands at the moment so the reply is a bit confused. Try to get some more info but as others said, trust your guts. You would feel the whole time that there is something fishy...

Yep, looks like Mikeshore and Daveshore might be the same, considering they are both using Wal-Mart and Moneygram to scam. You have the account # from the other thread, I'd seriously be calling WalMart/Woodforest Bank/MoneyGram (all owned by WalMart) and opening an investigation.

It is a little bit of a problem for me because living in another time zone and so.. I think my phone bill would be a lot more than those 275$.

I can justify this money on attenting the class of basic internet frauds
