As noted below-- received exactly the same emails, and then finally this one with the subject heading Payment Has Been Made...I should have googled \"her\" yesterday!

_______________________________________________________________________________

I had a little problem with the mover they said they can only schedule
the pick up date and time after they receive their money for the pick
up fee via Western Union money transfer in there head office in
Baltimore, MD, So i included $1850 and $150 to the payment i sent to
your paypal account, PayPal will instruct you on how to get the money
sent to my mover.

The payment has been made and the money has been deducted from my
account...Kindly get the shipping fee sent to the name and address
below and send the details to paypal email customer care for your total
funds to be credited. I believe that since payment has been made, the
advert should be taken off the site and please do let me know your free
date and time so that i can give it to my mover to use it to register
the date and time they will be coming for the pick up in your location.

Agent details: Linderal Augustus Arrington,7506 Harford Road, Baltimore, MD, 21234,USA

I hope to read from you soon.

Thanks, scamdex.com and all the others who wrote about this scammer. You saved me a lot of time. "She" emailed me through AutoTrader.com asking if my truck was still for sale. You guys alerted me of yet another scammer trying the PayPal route to free money.

Received two emails from Lisa Lamb wanting to buy my car for her dad for his birthday. The first one was short and wanted to know if it was still available. I won't show the second email I received because it is already on your scam report page. It's the one asking if I can assure her that she will be happy with the car for her day's birthday. Also explaining that she's an oceanographer and can't make phone calls only emails.

Thank you for getting back to me,can you assure me that i will not be disappointed if i buy this Vehicle as a Birthday gift for my Dad? as I'm ready to pay your asking price but not cash in person because I'm an Oceanographer and i am presently on a contract which will end in couple of months,the contract is strictly no call due to the lack of reception on the sea area,but I'm able to access my mail through my laptop and my only quickest payment option is PayPal,its safe fast and secure and i will be responsible for the pay pal transaction charges so you can get your expected amount.If you don't have an account with paypal,its pretty easy to open one,Just log on to www.paypal.com and sign up.I hope we can make the purchase as fast as possible? as my Dad's birthday is fast approaching,am sure he will love this vehicle,his a mechanic and a handy man,so if there is anything that need to be fixed in it just let me know he will handle it. I have a mover that will come for the pick up once payment clears in your account and he will handle the title for me.I look forward to hear from you with the information below.
