Really strange insisting on pay pal when told we don't have account with pay pal and asked her to transfer the money directly into company account then received email from her that it had been paid into pay pal any way then receiving receiving email from "PayPal " or " someone claiming to be" confirming payment and would not release money until Western Union had been paid ($950 + costs) and confirmation to them.
