I was selling my car this person offered to buy it. He wanted my pal account email address then told me he deposited the money into my paypal then sent a email stating that he need me to deposit money into his western union account for a courier to pick up the car and take to his premises. I then had a email from Paypal saying the funds had been deposited but I then had to deposit cash into western union before it would be release into my account. I told the guy to get lost. I have all the emails if you want them let me know thanks

Buying used car, PayPal scam
Thanks for the response,I would have loved to call you directly but due to the nature i work with TNT Engery Service Limited and we are presently offshore in New project work, we do not have access to phone at the moment,which is why I contacted you with internet messaging facility.
I am buying this for my first son who just graduated on top of his class at Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia ,He studied Building Design & Architecture. I want it to be the perfect graduation gift for him and am making it a surprise package ,Does it have any history I should be aware of? and why are you selling if you don't mind my asking. I don't mind adding an extra $200.00 for you just to take down the posting..I am already in talks with freighters that will handle the pickup and delivery .I will really appreciate if you can email more info
Due to the nature of my work i am a very busy person working all day, am a (Operating Manager) am presently on-board, i don't have access to my bank account online as am not with my credit card details here but i have my bank account link up with my PayPal account so I will be paying you through PayPal.But If you don't have a PayPal account you can easily set up one just log on to (www.paypal.com) and sign up as its very easy. Kindly get back to me with your PayPal name and email so i can proceed with the payment immediately and contact the courier agent who will come to pick it up and deliver it in Nova Scotia for my son .Await your reply .
Regards
