Replied to an add, presenting himself as a throat cancer sufferer. Pretended to be complete a payment by paypal, then tried to get me to transfer £100 from the sum he apparently had already transferred to his agent (support person?) to pick up the item I was selling.

Since you’re here …
we have a small favour to ask. More people are visting Scamdex and Scamalot than ever but advertising revenues are falling fast and we have no 'product' to sell. And unlike many informational websites, we haven’t put up a paywall or membership barrier – we want to keep our site as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Scamdex/Scamalot websites takes a lot of time, money and hard work to keep running. We do this because we hate to see our fellow humans getting scammed out of their hard-earned money by low-lives.
