Guy called Dave Edmond emailed regarding an item advertised on Gumtree classifieds in Australia. Wanted me to make a payment via Western Union to a Ronald Roberts, International Logistics Centre, 14 Cowell Street, Chattham, ME5 7BQ. Payment was to cover cost of transporting the item to his home in another state and I would be then be refunded the money which had already been deposited into Paypal. Emails supposedly from Paypal looked mostly legit, but no payment shows in Paypal. Looking at this website confirmed that I was being scammed. Thanks. If it looks suspicious and smells funny, it probably is.
