I received word by word almost the same message by this guy. Even though I told him the item was not available. He insisted that he was sending the check via FedEx. I havent receive any checks, but now he said that he did and that he want his money back or he will contact the CIA. I'm completely ignoring him now. Be careful and don't send him any information. He sounds like a big time scammer!
