Scammer email posted Tue Sep 14 08:56:46 2010
Subject: Hi
Date: Tuesday 14 September 2010
From: Katrina 

 I contacted you because I need a person who can sell my items on eBay. I just 
got my hands on many laptops from a store that entered in bankrupt. The 
laptops are brand new, never used, they are all sealed in their original box 
with all the accessories and producer warranty. I had a pretty big discount 
due to the fact that I purchased a lot of them and I want to sell them at a 
higher price in order to obtain a good profit.

 I have 25 laptops for sale:
 - 8 Apple Macbook Pro 17inch with i7 (2010 model)
 - 8 Apple Macbook Pro 15inch with i7 (2010 model)
 - 9 Dell Alienware M17x with i7 (2010 model)

 I don't have time to create an eBay account and manage the listings, respond 
to potential buyers etc, and due to the fact that I will have 0 feedback and 
low prices on my items, people won't trust buying from me and I don't have 
that much experience with eBay. All you have to do is to list 3 laptops each 
day on eBay. I will send you the descriptions and pictures for each laptop. 
You only have to copy my listing an insert it on eBay (copy/paste). After the 
listing ends you will have to send me the winning bidder's addres and I will 
send the laptop to him/her in 24 hours max. and I will provide you the 
tracking number of the item so you can give it to the buyer. After the buyer 
gets the laptop I am offering him 7 days to inspect the laptop. If it is as 
described in the auction and you get positive feedback you will have to send 
me the money(From the price you will take your share along with the fees that 
you paid to list the item). If you are interested I can offer you $150 for 
each laptop sold + the fees to eBay and PayPal.

 Are you willing to start right now? I am waiting for a fast reply from you 
and I will send you all the details you need to start working.
 Thank you very much!
