paypal/western union scam 
sara james
Email Address:
I was selling a tonneau cover. I posted it on lejune yard sales and within a couple hours I was approached about purchasing my item through an email. Sara James claimed that she didn\'t have much time because she was an oceanographer. She then said that because of this she couldn\'t come pick it up so she was gonna get it shipped and wanted to pay through PayPal. Not long after I received an email there was a problem with western union so she needed me to send the shipping charges through western union, so she was gonna include the $350.00 for shipping along with the price of the item and that as soon as I emailed the info from western to her that my account would be credited with the money.
