The same thing happened to me but with a different person.
Her name was Mary Stephany, email address
firstname.lastname@example.org. She had macaws for sale in a yahoo
ad. I asked about them and got this response:
"Could you send us your home address so we can send them to
our shipping agents, we accept western union money transfer.
get back to us and the name will be sent to you."
So I said NO I have a friend who lives in the same town as
you so I need your address so she can go pay for and get the
bird for me.
Her answer was "No I busy person. no time to visit see bird
you send money to me and I send bird."
LOL Like I am that dumb but how many people fall for this I
wonder? What a shame.
If a macaw or cockatoo is for sale for $250. or $300. Look
out it may be a scam.
