Car sale scam 
Email Address: []
I had a car for sale, Joel emailed me asking for my best price, and told me he would take the vehicle and to take it off the website and that he was arranging for the vehicle to be shipped to NT. He then said that he had transferred the money to BPAY for me and he said he needed me to help him with paying the shipping for the vehicle through a Chinese company that would only accept payment through western union which can be done at a post office; he couldn\'t get to a post office so wanted me to pay the $1800 to the company and when I provided the reciepts to BPAY they would pay me my asking price.
As I had a similar \"scam\" the week before, I told him he was being ripped off and the other company was only charging $1200 shipping. I told him no, and didn\'t hear from him again.
