He changed the deal in the email. He wanted to trade 5x the amount. "If it's too good to be true, it probably is."
He told me that he's not a "geek" so he wouldn't even know how to scam me. When I hear promises like that before a trade even begins I just walk away. I have a lot of experience in dealing with payment fraud. I've heard those promises before.
There is a chance he's not a scammer and I am just being overly cautious. In any event; I am not interested.
