Esp with the Florida registration number on the tube.........you have to wonder who hands over the money when it's this obvious, but also, this has to be traceable........probably to Nigeria.

I've approached a few before "selling" from here and Shetland - they just go hide when you ask. Also lots of people buying puppies online from "Orkney" then calling the airport to ask if they've been shipped yet - and then finding that they've been scammed too.

Ebay are pretty good at taking they off as soon as I report.

Mind you I do know of one palm tree in Orkney.
