However once he selected a strand from the ones I sent him pictures of, he said he could not pay through normal channels, and instead wanted my bank account info for a bank transfer. On top of that, he wanted to send someone to my house to pick up the package instead of using USPS, FedEx, etc. so his wife wouldn't be suspicious.
This was a rather obvious ploy to get my bank account info and also to possibly case my house for a robbery.
He is using the name Donald Parker and says he lives in Illinois. He did not answer any of my questions about what sites his wife was surfing, or the type of beads she looked at. He also said the links I provided to my Etsy items did not work.
I feel this was an attempted identity / bank account theft and wanted to alert the bead community.
