    this guy was supposed to buy some furniture from me , so he sent me about 10 emails until we got to getthe transaction on paypal this was his last email to me : ” Am glad to let you know that I have just completed the payment to (nad****@gmail.com), And you should have received a confirmation email from PayPal in regards to the payment.I will advise you to check both your INBOX or SPAM folder for the payment confirmation e-mail, After you received and confirmed the total funds into your PayPal Account, The company that I will be dealing with is (Freightfox) I have dealt with them many times before and found them to be very efficient & Reliable. As you may have noticed I have made an additional payment on top of all the other charges,The sum of 210.00 Eur..This needs to be sent to the courier company which can easily be done through Money gram in your local post office or via Money gram website http://global.moneygram.com, In order to very easy to complete the transaction because they are very easy and fast.This is their requested form of payment when it comes to dealing with international exchanges.Upon receiving the payment they will arrange to pick up within the next 48 hours. They will probably call you and choose the date the pick up will be made.

    Here is The information you need in order to complete the payment via Money gram listed below:

    First Name: Ayodele
    Last Name: Awani
    State: Dublin
    Country: Ireland”
    it made me think twice when he asked me to look into spam folder ……

    The same guy, the same situation! … furniture again …

    Hello,

    Thanks for the Prompt response…..i can see from the picture and post that its in good condition, But i will like you to know that i do not reside in your country so i cant be able to come and view what am buying this is why i asked for the condition and the year you have owned it before we can proceed with the payment…I reside in Ireland but am currently out of Ireland on vacation to United State…… and i am sure the Merchandise is in good condition as you have said. I don’t mind if you can have more photos of the Merchandise that you would like to send to me for review.

    I am willing to pay a total sum of ….. Eur for it and the payment will be done via PayPal if my offer is accepted. For the Paypal sub charge due ( Transfer charges ), I will be responsible for that so you will not be paying any charges to transfer the full fund into your account once its visible on your Paypal Account. Concerning the payment, i will proceed with the payment as soon as possible without any delay once i have the information below……

    Your Name:
    Your PayPal e-Mail Address:
    Contact Phone Number:

    The pick up will not hold until you might have gotten the full fund and it clears into your account so no problem about that.I wait to read from you soonest so we can proceed with the transaction.

    I have an e-mail account with a rather fierce spam filter, and I check periodically to see what nonsense has shown up in my spam box.

    Date: December 31, 2015
    Sender: noreply
    Subject: We need your help. It seem like unusual activity.
    Size: 159 KB

    Hovering over the sender’s name yields:
    noreply

    I haven’t opened the e-mail and do not intend to do so.

    Hope this helps.

    It just happened to me too, I’m from Romania as well, the same guy called “Mark” wanted to buy my old furniture. After a few emails back and fourth I’ve suspected that something is not ok and searched for his email address. Obviously I found all these complains.

    Thanks you all.
