I was offering to sell sofas and chairs for £750 and recieved a text asking me what would be the lowest I would accept, I replied that the amount was the lowest and he replied that he was happy with the price and needed my PayPal details to send the payment to me. It was his information regarding himself that had me suspicious as he was, according to him , on an oil rig as a petroleum engineer and would get an agent to pick it up for him as he was soon to be on vacation. I had remembered reading of a scam in the past that rang a bell and sent him an email back saying I had changed my mind nd I think he was a scammer, needless to say he did not reply!
