Same thing happened to me...but Joe lives in England now, imagine that, LOL!!! And he's moving to Kansas not Texas! :-))) Anything from oversees is almost ALWAYS fraudulent!! Sad to say, but there are a lot of evil people in this world! Honestly, I wish there was a way to catch these people...they should go to jail for this kinda stuff!
