Picked up off of BOOKOO while trying to sell my truck.
Red flag 1: extremely broken English in a manner consistent with middle eastern/southeastern asian mannerisms.
Red Flag 2: CANNOT PICK UP IN PERSON, wants to use a cargo shipping company called " Speedway Cargo Services" (A quick google reveals it is a real company, but based in Qatar. Not Southern California, though he insists its a "local shipping company in the state")
Red Flag 3: He wants to do this NOW. He was insistent I give him my paypal information so he could transfer me the money (which was actually more than my asking price) right that second.
He claims to work at the Hamburg Oil Field, in northern Alberta, Canada. He claims to be out of cell coverage, and has satellite internet, but too slow for internet calling or video calling,

A person attempting to buy a car via bookoo in Germany, then sends fraudulent emails from PayPal stating that money has been added to my PayPal account (with a multitude of mistakes in English), then asks to send the pick up agent $900 via Western Union because he can't do it himself. Gives details of the agent as: Christopher Sesay 119 Park Hill Avenue Staten Island New York
