Hi thanks for reply, i am a marine engineer, i am at sea right now. I
am buying this for my son as a surprise gift. I can Â only pay through
paypal at the moment as i don\'t have access to my bank account online(i
dont have internet banking with it), but i have it attached to my
paypal account, and this is why i insisted on using paypal to pay,all
i will need is your paypal email address to make the payment, and if
you dont have a paypal account yet, you can set one Â it cant take you
less than 3mins to do that, i will be expecting your paypal email so l
can pay. Â I have a pick up agent that will come for the pick up after
payment has been sorted, Â l will be waiting for your reply asap..
I then proceeded to tell him I wasn\'t comfortable giving him my PayPal details & that I would only accept cash cheque or eft and didnt he want to view the car first to where he replied:
I have read about it on the listing already before making inquiry and
am satisfied with the condition so that\'s not a problem.. I can only
pay in directly to your PayPal due to my present location and the
payment will be fully made and cleared in your account before my agent
to come there for the pickup.. You can send me a payment invoice to
this email(firstname.lastname@example.org) and get back to me with your
registered email with PayPal so i can pay in
This website has really helped as I assumed he was a scam but googling it confirmed it. I want others to know about it & make sure they potentially don\'t get caught up in the trap !
