Had advertised a truck on trucksales.com and this guy emails saying he is interested etc etc...He wants to go ahead with purchase and asks for paypal email address to make payment. Email supposedly from paypal comes through saying the amount of the truck is now with paypal and the amount for the shipping of the truck is extra and needs to be paid via Western Union and the monies will be released to the seller!....I checked paypal account no such monies are there and no confirmation from paypal. Paypal confirms these emails are all fraud and scam!....The shipping company they claim they want to use is in the UK and is : Ronald Roberts, International Logistics Centre, 14, Cowell street,ME5 7BQ Chattham. London, United Kingdom. BEWARE!!!!!!!
