 Scammer
  Information
Name:
   Patrick Gan
Email Address:
    patrick22gan@gmail.com
I advertised my car for sale on carsales.com
Was texted by \'Patrick\' who requested email contact as he was in a remote location. After email contact he stated he was buying the vehicle as a surprise for his son who was at Charles Sturt University in the Northern Territory. After requesting more information about the vehicle he stated he would buy it and pay for freight charges. I then received an email from PayPal (fake) stating that the money including the freight charges are waiting and I had to firstly pay the freight charges to a freight company in China.
He obviously has produced a fake paypal site. The details of the \'President\'on the paypal site are incorrect.
