1) Phishing contact made
2) Guy from Somalia places order via untraceable Skype phonecall
3) He says he wants to pre-pay by credit card
4) He tells you his "courier" will make pickup but must be paid COD - asks you to add a few hundred to the credit card charge and give cash to courier
5) Confederate shows up and collects the food and money
6) Visa hits you with a chargeback a few weeks later because the card was stolen
7) You are out the cost of the food, plus the cash
