Default europe

I have an offer to purchase an alienware tricked out laptop from europe. At first i yelled scam but then they said the invioce would arrive at my house with the computer thereby putting me at no risk. How is this possible?

Wait they said you would recieve the laptop. They probably are trying to scam you somehow. Dont pay them any money. If you get it for free good.

well i was looking at laptops on ebay and i noticed that an alienware computer wasn't getting bids. so i emailed her and she said that she is selling systems for $700 out of europe. I strait up sent her an email calling her a scammer, but in her reply she chuckled and said that the bill would arrive in the mail with the system which means that i dont have to pay a cent until i examine the system. What do yall think about this. Im going to give it a try and if it works ill let you know promptly.
