My dealings with \'Frank James\' is similar to the others who have posted of him, just with a different e-mail address. He text messaged me asking for a last price on an item I was selling on Gumtree and asked for me to reply by e-mail (mobile number was not visible so I couldn\'t reply to his text message). I e-mailed him notifying that I was not able to give a last price as I would prefer he comes to look at my item for sale before doing so. I received this reply:

\'Thanks for the swift response and do as well advise on the least amount you will like to give it away as i am buying this for Dad and due to the nature of my job and location...i will not be able to come for inspection,am a very busy type as i work long hours everyday,i have gone through your advertisement and i am satisfied with it.

As for the payment..i can only pay via the fastest and secure way to pay online(PayPal) here.

I have a private courier agent that will come for the pick up after the payment have been made ...so no shipping included and With the issue of my details,transferring the name of ownership and signing of all paperwork will be done by the courier services company agent so you don\'t have to worry about that.

You can now send me your PayPal email so i can pay in right away and also include your address in your reply.If you don\'t have a paypal account, you can easily set up one...log on to www.paypal.com.au and sign up its very easy... i would have loved to talk to you on phone but i work mainly offshore, our phone is down on the rig right now due to bad weather, that was why i sent you a text, i even wonder how my message deliver to your phone but for now we can only communicate through the same mailing channel.await your reply asap\'

The payment has been made successfully and the money has not been credited into your account. We are waiting for you to send the 795.00 CAD to the pick up agent headquarters through Western Union Transfer before we can release the money into your account and this is due to the large increase in the rate of the online scams recorded last year (2012). We have changed some of our rules and policy to make sure our clients (Customers) are safe from scam, PayPal in conjunction with the FBI has invented certain preventive measure to ensure the safety of both our sellers and buyers in any transaction made through PayPal. 1. Once a payment is made, a confirmation Email will be sent to the seller that the payment has been made to state the transaction details which has been sent to you. Also a confirmation is sent to the buyer that the money has been deducted from his or her account. So once you get this mail, you should send the money to the shipper immediately to the address that was given to you by PayPal and send the Western Union Information to Us. Once the Western Union Information gets to us, Your account will be credited instantly. But on no condition should the Western Union Information be given to the buyer unless the seller\'s account is credited and likewise will the seller\'s account be credited until we get the Western Union Information. 2. Once a payment is made and it has been approved by PayPal, such transaction is Sealed (because both customers must have come to a conclusion before payment is made by the sender) so therefore neither the sender or receiver can cancel this transaction or ask for the return to the sender\'s account. Also, this is where we generate our income, because the more transaction made through PayPal, the more we generate our Income. 3. Failure to abide by these laid down safety measures by PayPal may lead to invitation to an interrogation with the F.B.I . So can you see we are very considerate about the safety of both sender and receiver. **PLEASE NOTE** This PayPal® payment has been deducted from the buyer\'s account and has been \"APPROVED\"but will not be credited to your account until you send the Western Union Information to us or email us through this mail payment.screening@accountant.com and our customer care service will attend to you.
