if you ask me right now how i really feel..honestly..? i feel really STUPID.. and helpless.. BUT, i am back smiling because, i learned something new today.. just that, i learned the hard way. ein... biasa lahh... :P here's how the story goes. i thought of selling my wedding dress, so, i put it up on mudah.com. the next day, i received an email from 'regina' from UK. she was interested.. i felt funny because she asked me to send the dress to nigeria to her son. but then again, it was funnier when i just followed her wants. to cut the story short... i delivered the dress without getting paid, and now i have to pay for the courier of RM492.57 for the shipping to nigeria. read thru... and i am writing this so that you people out there don't do what i did okay...

Hi Regina

I have checked, postage is about RM100. So total is RM650 + RM100 = RM750. Roughly USD240 in total.

Are you still interested?

Hi~ i got the same messages too but with different name!!! i want to read your part 2!!! and why do you need to pay for the courier fee? you already sent the dress to her?

Hi Wallace, I need to pay the courier because I sent the dress already. She said she needed the courier's slip in order for her to transfer the money. I was so naive to believe here.

So, until now, there is no money transfered. I lost my dress and I had to pay the courier. :/
