Here is what he said to me,

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 $3,750 in all.i added $1,000 but $950 will be sent to my agent in China through western union at post office,the extra $50 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.
First name: Weiping
Surname: Liu
