Hi, I am getting back to you regarding the Samsung GALAXY S3 from Craigslist

My name is Anna and I am now in Vancouver, BC, Canada.
I work for Samsung and I have 20 Galaxy S3’s. I was offered a discount but only for 20 phones.
All of them are unlocked and brand new.
Let me know if you want one.

Thanks,
Anna

Hi,

I was checking for a way to make the exchange from here to you in the US and I came across this option, which is a very good way to make this exchange.
It’s provide by a company called Interparcel and it will help us with this transaction.
They seem designed specifically for internet transactions, they handle both the payment and delivery part of this transaction. They seem pretty nice and trustworthy and they provide a service that we can use for our exchange.
The link below is from Interparcel website and it explains their procedure. Please check the link and the procedure and let me know if you agree to the terms.

With this procedure Interparcel will deliver the Galaxy S3 to you, receive your payment and I will receive the payment for the Galaxy S3 only after you instruct them to do so.
I will pay the shipping.
Let me know if we can proceed.

Thanks.
