Untitled Auction/eBay Scam on Paypal (paypal.com), #16989Email Attached
 Scammer
  Information
Name:
   Declan Brouder
Email Address:
   brouder.declan1@yahoo.com
Declan Brouder claimed he wished to purchase a samsung galaxy tablet with the game flappy bird on it . We proceeded to email back and fourth and agreed on a price of €500. Over the next few days \"Declan Brouder\" claimed he made a payment of €500 to my paypal account and I received numerous emails which appeared to be from paypal. In order for the money to be released into my account I was told I would have to send on the shipping details of the package. Following this, I received more emails from these people claiming to be from paypal saying that \"Declan Brouder\'s\" account had been over debited by €350. I was expected to refund this money myself and through western union and once I forwarded the details of this transaction they would release the total sum of €950 to my paypal account. Please be aware that I have learned this is not the first time this person or people have tried to scam other people out of a wide variety of products!
