I had a vauxhall royale for sale on gumtree belfast and next morning i received a text message form a man calling himself stephen rehman saying he is interested in my car and asking me to reply to his email i did this and he requested more pics of car and stated that if he was happy he would pay the money into my paypal account all 4000 of it. He stated that he worked on an oil rig as an engineer and was soon getting of on holiday. I sent more pics and he was very happy and asked for my paypal details to make the payment saying also he would arrange for a courier to collect the car. I sent him the details but received a reply that he tried severval times to make the payment but was unsuccessful so could i send him my bank account details. Well i thought to myself straight away does this nut job think we boys from belfast came up the canal in a bubble my wife doesn\'t even know my bank account details so there was no way i was going to send them to some bastard probably from south africa just for him to scam me. So folks if it sounds to good to be true it usually is be aware and stick to my rule give nobody your bank account details not even your wife lol
