"I was just about to pay when i had this problem with the pick up, my pick up agent says i will need to pay for the pick up before they can schedule a pick up time, they charged me Â£300 for pick up and delivery, and payments for pick up made through them is made to their corporate international headquarters which is in the China and the payments is made through western union money transfer, i will add the Â£300 to the money i will send through PayPal as soon as i have made the payments, i will email you and let you know and please i will need you to help me send the money to my pick up agent Hq in the China through western union money transfer, this can be done from any Western Union Outlet ,there is always western union money transfer section outlet around you (you can also do it online as well at www.westernunion.com)...,i would have done it myself but as i am at sea and didn't bring my credit card aboard, i am a little incapacitated. I will appreciate your help here."
I automatically said no to doing this, telling him not to contact me again, I then didn't hear anything from him but reported him to Gumtree.
