Details of Scam Report
This guy wanted to buy a bike I had honestly listed on Gumtree, however once a payment advise had been sent using PayPal he responded by saying a further $950 had been added so that his transport agency could be paid, he wanted me to transfer the money to his shipping agent in Hong Kong via Western Union, I received bogus emails from PayPal stating this. These low life's need to be caught and prosecuted.
