He says he has sent payment thru paypal and all you need to do is send the pick up agent\'s fee thru any western union store or outlet\'s near you and email the money transfer control number to paypal for confirmation and the money will be credited into your account and it will go straight into your bank account.

You will receive notification from paypal that they have been notified by him to schedule the release of payment. However, he has the money on hold and it has not been deposited into your paypal account. As soon as you send him the agents fee (mine was $800) he will release your payment into your account.

We asked him to please withdraw his pick up agent fee from the paypal account and schedule pick up arrangements on his own. When money has been released into our account, then we will talk about pick up arrangements. Did not hear from him again for a few days until he sent a message saying, \"Please get back to me as I have a lot to discuss with you\"
