Cederstam said she received a call from an Australian who claimed that he met “Matheson” through Facebook.I nominate a password and when I’ve seen the goods I tell her brother in law what it is (or email her with it). I even chatted to my husband about it and we agreed that Western Union sounded like they had a good system in place. They have posts about consumer protection and how you should never send money to someone who you don’t know in real life.I very nearly went ahead with this, until I had a moment to stop and think about it.

Now, that’s a bloody good deal as those things usually go for 900€. She tells me she bought the item a few months ago, but now has to travel for work. People round here like cheques, but if I were selling, I’d prefer to be paid in cash. She says she’d prefer a Western Union transfer, which I can do via the post office or online.
