The story gets deeper...
The guy mailed me a 160gb Seagate Sata drive w\ a holographic sticker w\ asian writing on it. Absolutely not the hard drive I sent him.
I didn't pay attention to the package when I was opening it, or the packing slip that my wife had to sign to accept it. Upon further inspection, it was sent from China... The guy listed his Miami address on the From field.. IDK how they let him do that. I calculated out the shipping cost (340+ chinese yen!!! ) and it looks like he paid around $30-35 to ship it to me.
I emailed him back and he's trying to tell me that he bought the hard drive for relatives in china. So, the only benefit of doubt I can give him is if he's the one in china... and he's having stuff sent to relatives in miami and they stole the hard drive.
otherwise, it's just a scam where they're ordering stuff off amazon, shipping to china, and scamming / attempting to scam people.
