Try reporting it to paypal, there is a cancel transaction feature.But definitely a scam. What better than to use an old lady than some nigerian on the phone..lol.
Also reporting her to the local police or even FBI might help.

Funny story, my late uncle got an email from one of those Nigerian scammers trying to buy a laptop he had on ebay. My uncle was wise to every scam going so played along, received a fake money order from the nigerian, who of corse wanted him to ship the item right away to Europe cause he was in dire need of it..lol

Heres the good part...

So my uncle actually spent some of his own money to ship a laptop box to the address...Only the box was filled with a Phonebook and piles of dog poop from his 100lb Rotweiler!!! Hahahahahah, worht the $40 IMHO to mess with one of them douchebags..Wish I could have seen their face when they opened it.

Default Another scammer I had this morning

A guy named William Santa responded to my ad, a $900 Race Mate polished billet and chrome alternator/water pump. Big money when new.
This is mint, installed and removed never spun or had water run through it.
The guy doesn’t argue or chisel me after I send him tons of pictures.
say he’ll take it.
Here’s the fishy part.
He will Mail me a check for $2945 further requesting to hold it till it clears then send him back 2 grand, I keep the $900 and additionally I keep $45 more dollars for my trouble.
Sounds very creepy.
