Toronto Parcels Please

1. Person made a Craigslist ad for a "Factory Unlocked "Samsung Galaxy NOTE-II" New in box ! - $210". In the picture provided it is the titanium grey version with T-Mobile on the screen and an American-style power adapter. An inconsistency is the model number listed (GT-N7100 is for the international version, not the T-mobile version). The contact information was [email protected]

2. Received an email from Diane Harvey with the following message:
Hi, I am getting back to you regarding the Samsung GALAXY Note II from Craigslist

My name is Diane and I am now in Toronto.
Please take a look at the pictures attached to this email.
The phone is brand new, it works with any GSM carrier and comes with warranty.
I tried to be as thorough as I could with the presentation so you can have all the info if you decide to go ahead and buy it.
Let me know.

Thanks,
Diane

In the email there were photos included of a WHITE galaxy note 2, with a different film on the screen, and a UK-style power adapter.

3. After sending an email explaining my skepticism, I received this reply:

The phone is white. I'm selling it because I've received it from work and I don't need it.
I have found a company called Parcels Please that will deliver the phone to you in the US and allow you to check the phone before I receive the payment. You will be in control of your money and I will be in control of my phone.
I will use 5 day delivery and I will take care of the shipping fee.
Please have a look at their procedure and we will go from there.

Thanks.

This appears to be a common reply, and used the Parcels Please company that has been reported for scams before. Additionally, the McAfee, Verisign and other affiliated links are not functional.

I was skeptical from the beginning and never gave this person any money.
