hi i got this reply to trying to sell my motorbike also i got a fake paypal confirmation email looks very real.of course i rang paypal and was told they do not hold payments.

hello,
i got your mail just now and PayPal has notify me that they have send the payment confirmation to you so kindly go through the PayPal
payment confirmation so that you can see that immediately you get back to PayPal with the western union information that they require from you they will get your account credited immediately....so kindly go to the nearest western union office for this so that PayPal can verify the details and then get your account credited immediately


billhouck1988@gmail.com this is another fraudsters.here is one of the many emails.
Hello ,
Thanks for the mail, i am buying this for my Son,i am a petroleum
engineer currently on a rig offshore i really want this to be a
surprise gift for my Son so i wont let him know anything about this
until it gets delivered to him , i am sure he will be more than happy
with it.I can only pay with PayPal here, i will need you to give me
your PayPal email address so i can make the payments asap and please
if you don't have PayPal account yet, it is very easy to set up, go to
http://www.paypal.com and get it set up , after you have set it up i will
only need the e-mail address you use for registration with PayPal so
as to put the money through.tell me more about the advert price is
okay note well: Pick up agent will come for the pick up as soon as i
have made the payments, i would have loved to talk to you on phone
but i am a petroleum engineer I work mainly offshore, our phone is
down on the rig right now due to bad weather, we can only communicate
with our base for now.
Thank
