Robert Hogan
Email Address:
Robert Hogan wrote asking if vehicle was sold. When advised no, he made an offer of $100 more than the asking price. He asked for the advertisement to be deleted from the web site and he advised that he was a busy person and would not be able to collect the vehicle himself but would organise a courier and he would pay via PayPal. He also asked for extra photos to be sent to him and advised that the courier would organise the signing of transfer papers. I emailed him advising that the vehicle would not be released until cleared funds were in PayPal account and that no transfer papers were required as the vehicle was not registered. He emailed back next day advising the he had transfered an extra $950.00 into the account and that the courier, whose head office was in China, would not collect the vehicle until the extra $950.00 was paid to them via Western Union and would we pay this amount urgently. We also received 2 emails that appeared to be from Pay Pal advising that the funds were in our account. I contacted Pay Pal they advised it was a scam and there were no funds in our account and the emails did not come from them.
This is the name of who the money was to be transfered to:
First Name: James Watkins
Address: No. 8 Xiushui East Road
City: Chongwen District, State: Beijing,
Zip: 100027, Country: China.
Robert Hogan was very polite in all his emails, beware he is a scam. We also received emails from a person named Colin Miller with the same story. BEWARE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
