I was scammed by a certain Aurora Requena.  

He/She had replied to the announcement with 
which I am looking for an ASI 294MM offering it to me at a great price.  

We exchanged a lot of messages and she tells me that she no longer has PayPal for a variety of reasons. I express perplexity, but among other things she also comes to tell me that having been on Astromart for 10 years and having a reputation, she certainly would not have ruined it for a few hundred buks. In fact, I go to her profile and find, in addition to active announcements of thousands bucks each one, also various feedbacks, albeit old, and various messages on the forum; I also asked her for some pics of the camera and she even sent me an email. 
All this reassured me.  

So, after many exchanges of messages, I decide to believe in her honesty by proposing, as a form of protection, to pay half at the beginning and half once the package arrives. Everything happened on Friday and so a few minutes ago, after the weekend, I go to check messages but, not seeing any shipping update I clicked on her profile, but this no longer exists.  

I am writing all this to invite you to pay attention even from profiles belonging to apparently 'safe' people.  

I'm speechless... 

I had made some screenshots of her profile that I attach together with some messages of our conversation.
