This guy offered to buy our motorcycle on Kijiji through PayPal. Claimed he was a marine engineer, needed us to help him with shipping through western Union. We would have to front $700 to Western Union for shipping and once we scanned and emailed receipt to PayPal, we would receive $$ from them. The emails also appeared to come from PayPal. Waste of my time!!! Good thing that there are forums!!
