Went to sell my car on kijiji. He replied to the ad telling me that he liked the price and could I take more photo\'s and he would send me money via paypal. I did all this for him.. being very happy that I feel I just sold my car. He than emailed me with this; Before i make the payment,there is something i need you to be aware of,i just received an email from the shipping company that will be in charge of the pick up.They are saying

i need to pay them their fees which is $1200 before they proceed with coming for it and

the only form of payment that they accept is WU Money Transfer.Where i am,the nearest

union office is 8hrs where i am overseas,I dont know if it will be ok,if i include this agent\'s fees in the payment i will be sending you now,so on receipt of the total funds,you will remove the additional funds of $1200 and help me send it at your local WU office.Let me know if this is ok and i will proceed with the payment.


I can not believe there is a guy out there doing this. I hope that he has not taken too many people.
