Scammer Information Details of Scam Report
Identical to other scam reported ... Got an email from John Kokai shortly after listing a car on autotrader. Wanted to buy it for his dad as a birthday present - would pay full price - was an oceanographer and didn't have a phone. Allegedly paypaled me the full asking price - But... in order to get my money, I had to moneygram the "mover" Ken Linville in Redmond, OR $1830 plus $170 for the moneygram fee = $2,000.

I just received the very same type of email with the same name and story. I just wanted to confirm that this scammer is still out there. Beware people who are selling their car on autotrader.
