I received a response from this person, shortly after posting an ad to sell my car on Gumtree. He claims to work for the Australian Defence force and wants to purchasers the car for his son. He is prepared to pay an extra $300 if I remove the ad. I sent an invoice from PayPal now he has sent some convoluted nonsense about an agent in China and then requested my personal number.bank
I About To Make The Payment!! I just want to know more about the item to make sure its in good condition before i proceed with the payment,so can you assure me i will not be disappointed?And also I need to inform you about this as i just received an email from my pick agent from China...Am most sure i did not include that in my previous email,And they said they won't come for the pick up unless i pay the agent commission fee first in order to be able to schedule a pick up time.I am Operating officer as my position on here.I am so busy and can not pay the agent fees from here as they Requested that i need to pay them with Money Gram.So what i will do here is that i will send the payment in the total amount of $19,200.00 AUD. So once you receive the funds,you will deduct the promised amount for the good which is $17,100.00 AUD and the remaining $2.000.00 AUD will be send down to my agent By Money Gram .the extra $100 is main for the Money Gram charges and get back to me with your mobile number to ring you with my private company number once am done with the payment asap.Kindly reply back to me with your private number so i can ring you once i'm done with the payment On Sun, Oct 23, 2016 at 7:38 AM, Kenny Scott
