He sent a fraudulent payment via paypal (not really from paypal at all) saying to make $300 AUD transfer payment through Western Union for auto shipping and then funds would be released into my paypal account. I had a feeling this was a scam from the outset but as I was desperately trying to sell a wedding dress for my friend who needed the money I was hoping it was legit. Luckily I contact paypal by phone and they confirmed the paypal emails I had received were not from them.
