Scammer Information Details of Scam Report
I received a text message from the number above in ref to my ad on gumtree selling a sit on lawnmower, from a Dave Dass - I was told he was out of the country but could Is end a paypal invoice and he would pay and the mower would be collected asap (suspicious immediately as English was not great)he was chatty and friendly so beware. I sent an invoice from my Paypal account - within a few hours I received a spam mail from a supposed PayPal account saying that payment had been made but with an extra Â£300, at the same time I r4ceived an email from email@example.com
I have made the payment but i have a problem here, i just got an email from my transport company that they won't come for the pick up unless i pay the transport fee first, and there is no way i could do that because am out of the country at the moment and i can't access western union here. I have decided to add the amount which is Â£300 while i paid through paypal which has not been deducted from my account but pending in your account. So please i will like you to help me transfer/wire the said Â£300 to the company via western union so they can be able to come for the pick up and also paypal said they won't release the funds until they get the western union information from you to confirm that the Â£300 has been sent due to the fact that i emailed them about the exess payment i made. The money will be sent to company's agents head office address in MALAYSIA but they will be coming from Wales. Here is the details which the money will be sent to:
Name: Noralezah Binti Razak
Address: B-5-7 Pucak Anthenium avenue
Zipe code: 68000
I was also told by paypal that a confirmation email has been sent to firstname.lastname@example.org pls check all your mail folders i..e junk/spam to confirm my payment as it sometimes jumps in there.
