I posted a vintage Canon AE1 camera on Craigslist.  A woman named "Rose Mary" responded and said she wanted to purchase the camera for her daughter (b-day) who works for the Emergency child Trust Fund(U..N.O) in Africa.  Her email was written like it was a little old lady, it was very convincing and heartfelt.  She said she would pay full price +$100 for shipping straight to her daughter in Africa. I almost wrote her back to say she could have the camera for free since her daughter was doing such a great thing in Africa, but immediately I received an email from Merchant Express Money Order saying payment was ready to be shipped to my doorstep as soon as I sent them the shipping/tracking information from the US postal service.  The email from Merchant Express said the Confirmation information had to be sent to them immediately (TODAY) to get my money order the next day.  It was all way to fast. So I was going to call this Merchant Express but there wasn't any numbers on the email.  Only an email address:  merchantexpressorder@mail2network.com.  The email looked very legit. Well done but the picture for the company was 'x' out.  Strange.

I tried to look up the company on the Internet but couldn't really pin down which one it was.  In my efforts to find the company I came across the article on 'Ripoff Report' on another person who had the same thing happen and I stopped the transaction.

Thankyou!  You saved me some bucks and a nice camera.
