This is another classified ripoff. This is the one that says shipper will only accept Western Union payments and asked me to send $600 and then I would be paid cost of my bike and shipping. Then you start getting emails supposedly from paypal, that are really from
another scammer named They say everything is fine and the money is in her acct and will be sent over to your PP acct as soon as they get confirmation that the money has been sent by western union. The money is sent to Michael in Las Vegas. It can be picked up at any western U office throughout the world. Several were noted to have been picked up in Nigeria.They are very thorough and they beat me out of $600.
