I am trying to sell a car thru Autotrader, received a text then the following email
from tomgriffith@gmail.com / 936-874-9331:
-------
I am glad to inform you that the payment has been made to your PayPal account and you must have received the payment confirmation from PayPal by now. Kindly remove the ads and check your PayPal email address inbox or spam folder for the payment receipt. I had a little problem with the mover they said they can only schedule the pick up date and time after they receive their money for the pick up fee via Money Gram in there head office in Baltimore, Maryland. So l included $1,460.00 USD that they charge for the pick up and $140 for the Money Gram charges. Making total payment of $10,300.00 USD PayPal will instruct you on how to get the money sent to my mover. The payment has been made and the money has been deducted from my account. Kindly get the shipping fee sent to the name and address below and send the details to PayPal email customer care for your total funds to be credited. I believe that since payment has been made, the advert should be taken off the site and please do let me know the best time so that I can give it to my mover for them to schedule the date and time they will be coming for the pick up in your location.
