    Tonight he sent me this email:

    Okay am willing to add an extra $50 for you to reserve it in my favor.. And I'll be mailing a cashier check for the payment, and once the bank posts the fund, which shouldn't take more than a day, I'll arrange for the shipping. Let me have your name and address so that I can arrange for the payment

    "...reserve it in my favor..."

    Seems to be a recurring expression among non-English as First Language scamsters.

    That ranks up there with W5's referring to folks as 'mate'
