Details of Scam Report
I had a car advertised for sale on gumtree. Micheal contacted me asking to buy the car and he would pay shipping from Victoria Australia to the norther territory. After agreeing on the price, including an extra amount If I agreed to remove the ad, he said he had spoken to his freight company and would be paying extra via PayPal for me to forward on to the freight company via western union because he works on a ship at sea. He said he wanted the car for his son who has just graduated uni.
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!
