Claims to want to purchase my car that was advertised on gumtree. Wants to include $2000 extra for me to organise transport but through his broker as he is on a ship in the middle of the ocean. Uses a fake paypal email that claims he has transferred the money for the car plus $2000 transport costs. Multiple fake paypal emails follow telling me that the funds are waiting for clearance but for me to go ahead and send the $2000 transport cost out of my own funds to his broker because he has transferred the full payment to me I good faith. Total scam
