This scammer inquires on a car and then requests wants payment details etc. My correspondence reads the same as other scam reports where he claims to have sent excess funds to cover freight then further claims that Paypal wont release monies as there is a mismatch between the purchase price and remittance amount. Desmond then asks for the \"extra funds\" to be sent straight to the freight company to so that Paypal can release the funds to the buyer. Usually Western union in China haha didn\'t know they did domestic car freight in Australia. Looks like china is investing in Australian freight infrastructure now.
