When he emailed me to say he had made payment he said PayPal was holding the funds until I had paid the $800 to his freight agent in china via Western Union.
It was then that I googled his email address as the emails in my junk folder, supposedly from PayPal, had a few grammatical errors. When I googled his email address I found this site among others.
Be ware of this person!
