The scam is to pretend you are buying an RV, but you're a Marine overseas and cannot pay for the shipping charges. He then asks the seller to pay the shipping fees up front via WesternUnion to release the Paypal payment. here's the western union info:
Name : Juan O. Cepeda
> Address: 2629 Ivy Street,Houston
> Texas. USA. 77026
and the fraudulent Paypal "customer support" email: email@example.com
paypal paypal.com westernunion western union account payment customer buy sell fund firstname.lastname@example.org craigslist
Posted an item on craigslist and Steve replied and stated that he was working out of an AFB and could not meet in person. Said would pay via a Paypal acct and that we should set one up if we did not have one. Did a search on email and came up with this scam page. Avoid contact with this person.

Contacted through craigslist wanting to buy our vehicle, but he was serving in the service in Shahbaz air force base. He wanted us to set up a paypal account & provide him with our address so he can figure out how much shipping will cost. Conversations just started, so I'm sure more will come. Thanks to this site.

Wants to buy your product and asks you to send money to the shipping company in advance through Western Union. Then of course your money is gone and he never intended to buy anything.
Sent Money to Auto shipping inc. Maggie Watson in Lauderdale Lakes Fl. All the names are probably false.
