I Placed an advertisement to sell my caravan on the website using Quokka.
I got a EMail from a person in Darwin who wanted to buy my caravan. He told me that he would place the money for the caravan plus transport cost of $2500 into my Paypal account. A Day later I got an E:Mail from a fake PayPal site
(onlineequiries@gmail2cosultant.com) asking me to send a money order of $2500 via Western Union to somebody in England in order for the money for the caravan to be deposited into my Paypal account.

By the way I realised it was a scam as soon as he asked me to send the money order. I did not pay that amount and stopped all communications with that person
