Second; 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 $950 for pick up and delivery and payments for pick up made through them is made to their corporate international headquarters in the China and the payments is made through western union money transfer, i will add the $950 to the money i will send as soon as i have made the payments,i will need you to help me send the money to my pick up agent HQ in the China through western union money transfer, this can be done from any post office,there is always western union money transfer section in most post offices,i would have done it myself but as i am at sea and didnt bring my credit card aboard,.I will appreciate your help here and thanks for your understanding
Third; 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) i sent $14,388 in all.i added $1,050 but $950 will be sent to my agent in China through western union at post office,the extra $100 is to cover the western union fee. Paypal said they will not release the fund until you email them the western union 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.
Name: YU SHENG Address: 23 First world plaza, Hong Li Road, Tian District, Shenzhen China.
Please get the necessary details sent to Paypal (Money Transfer Control Number)MTCN and senders name and address used to send the $950 so that they can release the whole fund into your account.Please get back to me once done.
The red flag was the Western Union, plus the cars in south east Queensland, and figured $950 from here to there, no go.
Lots of emails later, and the wife calling Paypal, plus googlng his name, led me to this site, Many Many thanks guys, awesome site.
Name and shame this apparent person. Cheers Peter
