I advertised a car on Gumtree with my phone as a contact Ramond Jak contacted me asking to continue communication by e-mail and requesting to pay me by PayPal. My email address gave Jak partial access to my PayPal account where he tried to change my password. Meanwhile in continued communication Jak informed me the money for the car plus $2600 had been paid to Paypal who would not release the money until $2500 was paid by Western Union ($100 was provided for Western Union costs) and I sent PayPay the MTCN code.He claimed he was working for New Zealand Oil and Gas on their Kupe Project in an attemet to give authenticity to his conducting business the way he was doing. He is highly upset I have told him I suspect he is a scammer and claims the money for the car etc has left his account.

Same as above. He wants me to send him money via Western Union to help "free up" funds held by Paypal for his purchase of a motorcycle advertised on Gumtree Australia. Two follow up email allegedly from Paypal popped up in my Junk mail alerting me I had received a Paypal payment (crap of course). I'm telling him I have not received any such emails. I ant to see if he's stupid enough to send them again. I also asked him to ring a number which may help him track down his (non-existent)Paypal payment. The number I gave him was the Senzhen police station, around the corner from the non-existent transport company he claims he has to use to and pay for to transport the vehicle ( once I pay them first) I'm stringing him along, and passing on as much info as I can to bank and paypal investigators. And yes, he says he works on an oil rig off the New Zealand coast and seemingly this means he cannot make payments like normal humans

We treid to sell our car on Gumtree, and were contacted by Ramond Jak. He asked if we wanted to be paid through Paypal or directly into our account. We asked to be paid into our accont, then got an email saying he had paid + car freight costs into out "Paypal"account,however, his transport company needed to be paid $1650 into their Chinese account through western union before the funds would be released by paypal etc. I contacted Paypal and they confirmed it was a scam and there were no funds. I then e-mailed Ramond Jak saying the deal was off, and I was being transferred by work. We have just received an e-mail from the ficticious paypal treatening Legal action if I do not pay the western union money. All his and fake paypal e-mails have been forwarded to Paypal securit.
