had an item for sale on GUNTREE for £500. Offered to pay over the asking price to include carriage for her courier at a total of £880. Not able to speak to us on the phone as she had severe deafness!! Told us she would deposit money straight into our account and for us to liase with the courier on cost, times and dates for pick up, via WESTERN UNION Luckily we knew that all she needed to make a payment to us was our email account via paypal. Emails then stopped. Also mentioned that the item was to be couriered to CHINA?
