  Information
Name:
   Mattew R Davies
Email Address:
   mattrodee@gmail.com
Placed ad for my car on Gumtree.
Guy gets in touch wanting to purchase car.
Says its for his son at local university.
Wants to pay straight away via paypal, will organise pickup and delivery as he works away.
sent paypal money request to him and name is different to emails. a 'Korede Olusodo' not a Mattew R Davies.
So googled his email. Scamdex to the rescue. Numerous reports of the same scam.
Cancel the request.
He emails saying he has paid but the courier needs payment now. Tells me he has paid me an extra £350 to sort this out. Had to send money to Western Union or something.
Told him i don't believe this was an actual sale and had nothing since.

SCAM.
