We had a motorhome for sale. Was followed up with an identical scam from the same guy who told us he worked for NZO&G. Message was identical to the one in which he says it's a birthday present for his father. Got suspicious when we had to pay the courier for him through Western Union. We even received fake PayPal messages. Be very weary of this one!
