Merran responded to an ad on Gumtree for a car sale, he urged the sale to go through Paypal, in the end I set up a separate bank account and gave it to hime, the car was on sale for $4,550.00, he replied that he would send $5,550.00 and for me to pay a freight service $900.00 through Western Union he said there was an extra $100.00 to cover the cost of Western Union, thing is I had to send the $900.00 to the freight service, Smith Garry in Kuala Lumpur so that Western Union would then issue me details of the transaction & then I could claim the money from Paypal
