He is fine with that. and want me to give him my account number and address so he can transfer me and he said he will call him delivery man to come pick up the sofa. The next moment he send me this {Hello,
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 $400 USD for pick up and
delivery, and payments for pick up made through them is made to their
corporate international headquarters which is in China and the
payments is made Via Western Union, i will add the $400 USD to the
money i will send through paypal to your Bank Account 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 Head
Quarter in the China through Western Union, this can be done at any
store around you or post office,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.} but at first i didnt know that its was a scam i wanted to help him with that. but lucky i got no enough cash can't transfer to him. Next he ask me to check my email { Hello,
I have just completed the payment and i expected PayPal to have
notified you to this effect.check your mail folders (inbox,spam and
junk mail on your email) i sent $880.00 USD in all.i added $450 USD
but $400 USD will be sent to my agent in China through Western
Union,the extra $50 is to cover the Money transfer fee.PayPal said
they will not release the fund until you email them the transfer
details for verification,and also to enable my pick up agent to come
for pick up and inspection. Here is the agent's details where the
money will be sent.

I received the following text:
"I'm interested in renting your room/appt listed on kijiji so send me more details and address directly to my email (openlearningltd@gmail.com) Pls email only"
It sounded like a scam and sure enough the email address was listed as a scam. No further correspondence or action taken.
