Classified Ads Scam
| Untitled Classified Ads Scam on Paypal (paypal.com), ref:1775 |
he texted me from a number i didn\'t know but it came up as \"DavEd\" saying \"I would like to know the present condition and firm price for your listing. easier to contact me on: email@example.com\"
and he then emailed me when i told him the condition of the bike, saying
\"Hi thanks for the mail, am ok with the price and the condition, am buying it for my holiday, because i\'ll be coming soon from our rig as am a marine biologist working offshore, i won\'t be able to come for the inspection due to the nature of my work, i would have love to call in person but we have limited access to calls due to bad weather condition. i will be paying you through PayPal, pls get back to me with your PayPal details so i can proceed with the payment and contact the courier agent who will come to pick it up and deliver it to my place prior my arrival. Await your reply.\"
this was similar wording as the last person who tried to scam me when i sold my previous bike - don\'t fall for it!
