Scam In freecycle!

Απάτη στο freecycle

New type of scam from our Nigerian friends.
I do not have all details yet, but
the scam goes as follows:
They post a valuable item to give away on freecyle, for example an Iphone 4 or 4S so you contact them cause its an excellent bait. (I mean who in their right mind would give away an working ipad instead of selling it, no matter how old it is)
They tell you that the person who has it was send away as a missionary in Africa (usually Lagos Nigeria) and they ask you to provide your details, (eg Address) to send you the item.

As the communication with the scammer is ongoing, I will post details as I receive them.
