Details of Scam Report
David text me and said was interested in buying my item on Gumtree. Then I emailed him and he wanted to buy it for his son. After a few emails he said that I would receive an email form PayPal informing me that the money is held on my account and I need to go to Money Gram to send it him. PayPal had no recollection if this email or the hold on my account! It is a complete fraud.

Scam Email
Do you expect paypal to release the money for you before you will be able to get the money gram done ? that's not possible mate cos paypal wont release my excess payment to you to make the money gram, you will have to upfront your payment through money gram before paypal release the whole funds for you, all you have to do is to email paypal the Reference number you have from money gram in order for your whole funds to be credit in your account immediately.

I added the £320 they charged for the pick up and £30 for the money gram charges,you will receive the total sum of £370.You'll send £320 to them via money gram today and here is the details needed for the transfer below:
