Placed a truck for sale on Kijiji, this guy responses that he wants to buy it for his parenting in Ont. Will give us asking plus $800 if we hold it for him. He can \"only pay\" through paypal, and will transfer the money plus pay for the fee. Then we are told that the driving company he is using has to receive $800 via Western Union or Money Gram, and he can\'t make that arrangement so he will add that to the money transfer too. I contacted paypal and they do not hold funds waiting for their competition\'s money transfer number (MTN) before they will release your cash. This set of crooks can be very aggressive and threatening so please be careful.
