Scammer Information
NameMichelle Tony    

Details of Scam Report
I was selling an item, created a PayPal invoice & was then told by the buyer (see their email details) that I needed to purchase a moneygram, send it to a company in France, so that the item could be shipped. My original invoice was for £255, but their email claimed that £615 had been paid to PayPal and was being kept 'on hold' until I sent the extra money in the moneygram - then the funds would be released. This is exactly the same as another scam on your site - the scammers even used the same transaction number.
