We got an e-mail through what looked like PayPal stating the money was on hold until we could provide a receipt that we sent the shipper $950 through Western Union. The shippers name, Tracy Chester, 5105 Kaynorth Rd apt#12, Lansing MI 48911.
I got onto my paypal account and saw no evidence of any pending transactions so I immediately cancled it.

Text messages agreeing to buy a shed I have on Craigslist. Claimed to be a marine biologist making communication difficult and fleeting for the internet etc. Thus, when I asked the texter to call me, they said they could not. Their texts stated that they agreed to my price, and would send me the money via paypal. The texter asked "Do I accept their offer?".
The texter claimed he was going to buy my item for his father. It is a rather large shed that would need a wrecker to move.
I told him I do not sell via text message, nice try.
