they contacted me with the same spiel as others. they would deposit money into my paypal acct and I would pay the "shipper" for the item I was selling. I was an idiot not to google this. I hope to alert others so the same thing doesn't happen to them. I talked to paypal and they said it was very common. anytime the words western union or money gram is mentioned - RUN!

I was selling furniture on Craigslist and got an email from John, claiming to be a guy who works out on the sea. And he was moving into his new house, and wanted me to help coordinate everything for him.
He said that he sent the money via PayPal. PayPal normally notifies me.
He told me to check my "spam" folders. And low and behold, a very NON-OFFICIAL LOOKING PAYPAL EMAIL was there.
Then my husband and brother sent me THIS link. Of course it was a scam, but...sad.

Say they want to by your furniture and say they have sent the money plus additional funds to give to moving company to deliver items. They don't actually send the money but try to get you to send money to the moving company - this is a scam. Thank God we figured it out before sending the money.
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.
