Avoid any deals with purchaser Melvin Shearer or any arrangement that involves receiving a money order for an amount in excess of the item you are selling and instructions where you have to forward the excess to a shipper in Benin yourself through Western Union. It is a scam and you could be on the hook if you cash a fraudulant money order through an ATM machine.

Thanks for your advice. I have been in contact with Melvin Shearer and the same scenario has happened. He wants me to cash a money order and forward the rest to a shipper via money gram. He says he is in paris at the moment. I will back out of this deal. Thanks again for the heads up.
