Straight up copy and pasted:

ok so as an ENGLISH....MAJOR...I was really studying this woman's word positioning. It didn't seem right....
Though there are people out there who do not understand proper grammar....the way she typed was just a little...odd...failure to capitalize my name again and ....idk..something was fishy.


So I called Paypal after finding out that "paypal" emailed me and said that I have to send the package as they hold the money to avoid scams and what not....they provided me with a confirmation number and everything...I'm like....hold on...
I've received money through paypal a couple of times....this doesn't seem right....

so here is the email i sent to ANNA.
hopefully she responds:
