He inquired about a Motor Cycle I am selling on Gumtree, said he was happy with the asking
price and condition of same. I gave him the details of expected settlement that it had
to be cash or direct deposit before the item would be released. a Day later he came
back at me with Paypal information and how to open up an account with them. I told him
explicitly told him NO DEAL Cash of Dir Dep. There was several emails which I have kept
describing paypal, again I told him absolutely not with Paypal. He then sent me a bogus receipt showing he had paid all the money into the PayPal account and the agents fee had to be paid
first before the balance owing to me. The agents fee was somethign like $904, I
was supposed to send the $904 To some logistics address which I have prior to them realeasing
my asking amount on the bike. It was at this stage I became suspicious and when he sent
a poster of an arrest being made and saying it was from Paypal and describing how I should
get the money to him. I have sinced been to my bank and no money has been taken.The agents name
cited was
Ronald Roberts,
International Logistics Centre,
14, Cowell street,Chattham.
London,
United Kingdom.

Have just realized after I have paid $950 that I have been scammed by this Dave Edmond. I also recieves the PayPal receipts and information saying he has transferred funds to my account. This was in regards to a ring on gumtree and again I stupidly transferred the money to the Ronald Roberts- international logistics center. This guy is a true scam artist and I'm urging you not to fall for it.
