He expressed an interest in buying my piano > asked for my PayPal emails so he could \"transfer\" funds sent an email to say he\'d paid the amount PLUS an extra $950 for courier feeds + $100 for Western Union services. He asked for me to pay the courier fee on his behalf because he was \'at sea / on a ship and forgot his credit card so couldn\'t pay online and therefore couldn\'t schedule in a pick up time). I also received a so called \'confirmation email\' from \'PayPal/scammer\' with a fake statement saying that funds were transferred but wouldn\'t be released into my PayPal account until I had provided a Western Union Money Transfer number. Called PayPay to verify and they confirmed with 110% it was a scammer.
