Here's additional info on this scam - once they rip you off for the $1000 courier fee they then try to gain access to your bank account.
I got an email back from the guy about the truck.Â He said he had deposited $7500 into my paypal account, but paypal was holding the money until the fee for the courier was paid. He wanted me to send $1000 to the courier so paypal would release the funds to me.Â He also said that I would get an email from paypal about this and sure enough I got an email from paypal saying that he had deposited this money into my account and they couldn't release it to me until the courier was paid.Â I phoned paypal and asked them about this and they assured me they didn't send me any email and my account was indeed closed with a zero balance in it. Â Today I got an email from CIBC that says I have to verify my online account, just click this linkÂ to sign in to my account. Â I phoned CIBC and they said the email wasn't from them and they asked me to forward it to their fraud department which I did.Â

Got a story of being offshore, but Daniel said he was from Quebec and he would be having the truck couriered there. After setting up a PayPal account, he then said he didn't have his credit card on the ship he was working on and could we use Western Transfer to send $960 to his courier in China.
