This person stated he was working on a west aquarius semi-submersible and wanted to send payment via paypal without even looking at my vehicle for sale. He sounded very real and asked me to take down my kijiji advert so he could be the favourite buyer. He emailed me and said the transfer was done and paypal was going to send me a confirmation.
Lo and behold an email from paypal saying because they had previous bad experience I must send some money to the agent picking up the car via western union to some guy in china. Once and only after I sent the money the funds would be transferred to my paypal account.

Yeaa right buddy who do you think I am.

Please please be careful with these types of emails as they try and swindle you any way possible.
Don\'t release any personal information ever even if it looks legit.
