Requesting bank details for paypal payment to purchase boat advertised on Gumtree - sight unseen - same as previous story, as a present for his son - also told he is a marine engineer (didn't give employer name) but just told 20 days on 10 days off - saying he has to contact his agent to pick up the boat once it is paid - total crap - watch out for this guy - how can he still use this email address if he is trying to scam people is what I want to know??
Tipoff to this was the fact that he was happy to pay without seeing the item - no one does that! Too keen to use Western Union or find a way to get your banking details - never use Western Union!
