Beware - username jainy021 - Email phishing scam

Beware if receive from a user named jainy021.

User PMs expressing interest in your FS post and asks that you send an email to

Received an email back from "Dan Lee" from the said email who wrote in the email

"Sorry for the late in reply, Thanks for your mail... Buying the watch for my birthday

I am ready to proceed with payment and shipping.

I sent 3 sellers message about the watch, Please is this the thread to your watch"

The link redirects to a TRF looking website but URL shows kontorolex(dot)000webhostapp(dor)com/xxxx

I almost got scammed by this guy too, and it looks like we simultaneously posted threads about him.

How come I don’t get these emails? I’m actually insulted.
