I have advertised a vehicle in the online quokka and received an email almost identical to those listed in their scammers section. I played along and the reply was \"my pick up agent head quarters is in the (Bangkok Thailand) and all commission pmnts made for pick up to their head quarters in Thailand, and the only form of payments they accept is western union money transferso i will include the $500 they charged me for the pick up (1st class treatment) so all i need from you is your permission to include the said amount to the payment i will send through paypal.After i have made the payments and it has been confirmed\" I had to wire the money through western union immediately. I said to confirm make contact via telephone and I havent had a reply since.
