If you received this disturbing email from Kristin Justice, justicekristin77@yahoo.com, please delete it and don't email this person! It's a scam.

Urgent reply needed I'm seriously interested in buying this your item

Hi, I am interested in this item you have for sale. What's your final asking price, I am willing to pay the full asking price..unfortunately I am a full time pornographer working on a shoot at the moment so I would need to send a special agent to collect this item. Do you accept paypal? Please send me your PayPal details and I will send full payment.

Just don't email her anymore and emails us first, if in doubt. Thanks!

I bet the scammer who composed that - which might not be that Kristin person - meant to put "photographer working on a shoot" lol.

I usually assume anyone who needs to send a pick up agent is not a real transaction. I keep my business simple. Follow the site instructions to make a purchase.  Simple. (Although I work F/T so bending over backwards to run my shop is not as high in my priorities as it may be for others.)

Thanks for the warning though!

Ha ha... Yes, they probably meant "Photographer" and not "Pornographer". Too funny!  Roll Eyes

Good news is that this last scam email pushed us to improve our algorithm for catching scam emails. Hopefully, it will be harder for them to get through in the future. We are testing these updates now and should release them this weekend or early next week.
