thanks so much for your response. I am so keen about the transaction and i am not ready for drama\'s so i hope you are also in for the goody. I am sure you will have received lots of offer but am offering you $7100 so i hope that beats other offers that you have got. I would have loved to call you concerning this transaction and view it first but i am an Army Officer and am currently in the BASE right now so its really going to be a bit hard to make or receive calls right now but am sure we can run the transaction successfully through here and i am cool with the little i have known about it. I will make a concrete pick up arrangement with my pick agent who will be coming over for pick up after you have received full payment into your account. Am making the payment through PayPal or straight into your bank account from my Paypal account, so get back to me with your Paypal email or bank details where you will like the funds to be credited and i can get the funds sent asap. thanks.

This person sent a text to my husband regarding his Kijiji add, and told him to reply back to his personal mail address. This is all the email correspondence as of right now. We googled his name shortly after his first email and got this site that alerted us to his scam. My husbands name and email are deleted for privacy. We are in Saskatchewan.

PayPal serves as an electronic alternative to traditional paper methods such as checks and money orders. Once you have created a paypal account, it must be linked to your credit card or your bank account so that the payment you have received into your paypal account can go into your credit card or your bank account. Once I have transferred the payment into your paypal account, you will be notified by paypal immediately that you have received a payment from me. Once the payment is sitting in your paypal account, it will be automatically transferred into your bank account . Hope you have a clear picture of how paypal operate now?

Here are my dealings that transpired this morning;
From: Tom Dawood [mailto:tom_dawood123@live.com] Sent: Saturday, July 20, 2013 12:10 PM To: Ron Jordan Subject: Payment Completed
I have just completed the payment now and i expect PayPal to have emailed you by now,check your PayPal email for PayPal confirmation email in this folders spam/junk and inbox, i sent $10,500 in all, i have decided to add the amount of $1,000 which i paid through PayPal, So you can now wire the sum of $950 to my agent's Headquarters in China via western union where they confirm all commission payment so that they can be able to schedule a suitable pick up date and time immediately. As said earlier in my previous mail,the western union transfer can be done at the post office as their is a western union section in all post office and can also be done via the internet(www.westernunion.com).I added extra $50 to cover the western union charges which shouldn't be more that $35-45 but just to be sure i added $50. Here is my pick up agent Headquarter info needed to get the money sent through western union money transfer: First Name: JINZHI Last Name : WANG Address:10 Wanjing Road City: fengtai Beijjng State: Beijing Zip Code: 100029 Country: China. ________________________________________ From: ronjordan@sasktel.net To: tom_dawood123@live.com Subject: RE: Courier Issues Date: Sat, 20 Jul 2013 12:08:18 -0600 Sorry to hear you have problems with your agent, I will deliver it for the additional 950. Provide me the address please.
From: Tom Dawood [mailto:tom_dawood123@live.com] Sent: Saturday, July 20, 2013 11:52 AM To: Ron Jordan Subject: Courier Issues
Pls do me this Big Favor: I was just about to make the payment when i had this little problem with my Agent coming for the Pickup,I got an email from him...he said he won't come for the pick up unless i pay him the agent commission fee first in order to be able to schedule suitable pick up date and time and my pick up agent Headquarters is in China and all commission payments made for pick up from anywhere in the world is sent to their Headquarters in China and the only form of payments they accept is western union money transfer and i tried to pay online now(www.westernunion.com) but it requires a credit card to make the transfer online which i don't have access to and there is no post office on sea.(there is usually a western union section in most post offices). So now i will include the $950 they charged to pick it up and take it home(1st class treatment)to your payments i will send through PayPal. After receiving the confirmation email from PayPal after i have made the payments and the money clears, i will need you to help me send the $950 to my pick up agent through western union money transfer.The western union money transfer can be made at a post office or online at www.westernunion.com.I will be making the payments shortly and will email you as soon as am done.Hope you understand??? ________________________________________ From: ronjordan@sasktel.net To: tom_dawood123@live.com Subject: RE: Rinker Captiva Date: Sat, 20 Jul 2013 11:50:06 -0600 Once the payment clears, I’ll remove the add.

I purchased the boat 3 years ago at Minnetonka Marine in Minnesota. It is in spectacular condition, absolutely no tears, or scratches in the upholstery, the interior is pristine, the exterior is in great condition with 2 or 3 very minor chips in the hull. It is currently at Collingwood Estates at Last Mountain Lake. It is 20’ 10" in length, 8’ 06" Beam, 20 degree deadrise, 3,120 lbs Fuel Capacity 42 U.S. gals. I wax it every time it comes out of the water. I am reasonably firm on the price, probably have 23K invested in it, but may be willing to move a few hundred dollars if you are serious. Let me know if you are interested.
Regards,
Ron Jordan
