    Here is a copy of an email conversation I have had with a so called supplier of Apple Ipods from belgium:

    Hello

    Look how this will work (you send us the money Via Western Union and you will put a
    password on the money and in this way we can't pick up the money because we need the
    password but you must promis us that as soon as you get the products you will give
    us the th epassword so we can pick up the money

    Thank you

    Hi Robey,

    If you are prepared to do this basically you mean that you will ship
    payment on delivery?

    Do you mean that it is ok to send the money through once I have received
    the goods?

    If this is the case I would like to order a sample of 5 units of the Mini
    Ipod in Blue if possible.

    Please can you let if this would be ok and I will send you a shipping
    address.

    Thanks

    Anthony

    Yahoo! Mail - You care about security. So do we.



    Just as you think you have found a reliable supplier and a chance to make some sort of money you get let down again.

    What do you guys think?

    Cheers

    Its probably a scam, stay well away. I personaly wouldn't trust any one using weston union unless i had previous experience doing business with them, the poor gramar in the emails you recieved is also a hint.

    if your looking for ipods theres a thread here that might be of intrest to youhttp://thewholesaleforums.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?t=260

    No, don't pay by Western Union and it's a scam. And if they are using Yahoo as an email contact, you should not go ahead and make a purchase.

    Personally, I would not touch them.
