bahahaha wow that is almost identical wording to my email! youd think they could come up with something more original! Thanks so much for googling that!
I guess I sound dense asking the original question but I want to clarify I DID actually think it was a scam but I just didnt know of what benefit it would be to them to use paypal to pay as I considered that a reliable source of payment, I didnt even think of them advising me of a "fake payment"...thanks so much everyone
they are mostly in Nigeria and don't know much English tongue
