Robert claimed to work as a tool pusher for west aquarius semi submersible and couldnt personally view but once payment for the caravan went through he would send someone to pick it up only his courier required a 1550 fee which he couldnt pay due to not working near a post office. He said he would add the fee to the total and transfer via pay pal only catch pay pal wont release the money until the 1550 is paid to courier. Money had to be transferred via a west union money transfer. Called pay pal they dont deal with western money transfers and told us its a scam and to put it on a scam watch site to alert others. From what ive read here this guy is isuing different names but the same story.

"Almost?" I had a PC for sale and Robert C. McKenzie emailed me and seemed interested. I became suspicious with his eagerness as he didn't take much of my information about the PC technicalities too seriously. Googling his email addy I found the same email cited on Scamdex with associated name Robert. To see what he would do next I said I would use my courier but he rejected this. I requested payment by bank cheque and he only did Paypal or Bank wire transfer?
