Request to buy our car (Auto Trader) asked for us to email Pay Pay invoice for payment... did & this the reply:- My name is dan lawrence and I'm really interested in buying this for someone. I will pay you via paypal only as its safe and secured online payment. I won't be able to look at it due to the nature of my work but I'll be responsible for the payment fees and I'll have my private mover pick it up from you once the payment has clear to your account. Please am I the first to contact you about it since you've posted it for sale online?why are you selling it?where would you like to meet my mover for pick up?I can assure you that this deal will be hassle free so do you have a paypal account already for the payment? dan lawrence 11:45 AM (23 minutes ago) to me I have just made the payments now and i expect PayPal to have emailed you by now if you don't get it please check your spam or junk box maybe the mail went there,i sent $9,267.28 in all, To (email@example.com ) i transfer the fund from my PayPal account to your Paypal account , PayPal said they would be holding the funds and it will not be credited into your account because of the excess payments of $900.00 i added meant for pick up and delivery,they said they have emailed you to this effect, you will need to send the $900.00 to my pick up agent Headquarters via Western Union Money transfer,so that PayPal can credit the $9,267.28 into your account as soon as you have emailed the Western Union details to them, i added extra $100.00 to cover the Western Union charges which shouldn't be more than $50.00 but just to be sure i added $100.00 Here is the pick up agent info needed to get the money sent through Western Union Money transfer: Reciver First Name: Basi Reciever Second Name: Bandon City: McDonough State: Georgia Zipcode: 30253 Country: USA
I will need the details of the transfer once you have sent fund . . . 1.The MTCN number 2.Sender's name and address used in sending the money 3.Actual amount sent.
