Here's the Scam - Basically They "Overpay" the shipping company! Then you Pay.
Thanks for the details provided, I was just about to make the payment
when i got a email from the freight agent that they will not come for
the pick up until I pay the pick up and delivery cost via Western
Union Money Transfer. The shipping cost they charged me is $550 which
I will not be able to provide due to my job. Now, I will have to add
it to the payment, I will send to you via PayPal and after you
receive the payment notification from paypal.you will help me to send
the shiping cost to the freight agent via Western Union Money Transfer
which is their payment method. I will also include an additional $100
for the Western Union charges.
I'll let you know once I made the payment.
The Fake PayPal Payment comes in a email afterwards.

this guy use email address Collins Williams ; Thanks for your swift response to my buying inquiry,your asking price is quite reasonable and affordable considering others I've seen lately, I'll take it. I would have loved to come check it out my self but I'm currently in camp as military (SERE) instructor for new recruits. I however squeezed out time to check this posting as all personal dealings are highly restricted here, that's why I'm arranging for a pick up. I'm buying the item for my Brother in Law, as I've promised him early this year. I really want it to be a big surprise to him so I wouldn't want him to know anything about it until it gets delivered to him. I'm sure he will be more than glad to receive it . I don't have access to my bank account online as I don't have internet banking. I'm going to arrange for a pickup with a freight company so you got nothing to worry about. However, I'll like to complete the payment part through PayPal for the safety of both of us. In addition, I'll need your name, the pickup address or location and please include your PayPal email address for the payment. If you don't have PayPal account It's very easy and secured...just visit www.PayPal.com and click on signup, after that you will need to send me the name and email address you have used to registered with PayPal so I can make the payment ASAP. Regards.
