Hi,

Thank you for your response...My name is Adam James,I am currently out of town at the moment. I am buying the wheels for my dad and the asking price sounds good to me.I can only pay through PayPal only. So kindly get back to me with your PayPal invoice or PayPal email address,phone number and your name.... so I can proceed with the payment and after I have made the payment, I have a pick up agent that will come around for pick up of the item from your location.

Hope to read from you with the requested payment details asap....

Cheers,
James.

Looks like this asshole is trying his luck again - ***Danny miles ***dmiles33412@yahoo.com***
Dont let this twat reel you in!
Have also recieved a few fake paypal emails trying to back all this bullshit up, dont be fooled, report it to paypal and this sites admin.

Good morning Martin,

How was your night ??I just want you to know that the money has already been deducted from my account....

Please get back to me ASAP.

Cheers.
Danny.


I just want you to know that i have made the payment out via PayPal,and you will be to notify about the payment by PayPal... please check your PayPal email address at (****************) for the PayPal payment confirmation email. PayPal said that they would be holding the money i sent because of the excess payments that i made which was the money for pick up of the item,I will need you to proceed and Wire the excess which is £300 to my pick up agent to enable them make a booking for the picked up of the item.Remember that you are going to wire the agent fee to them via Western Union transfer as that is there method of payment.

So please do send the £300 through western union transfer and use remaining £50 as western union charges to send the pick up agent fee out Ok.You can easily Walk to the local post office or any western union outlet around you.After you have sent the money please get back to me asap with the western union details which you will be given by WESTERN UNION after you have sent the money as well as the sender's name and address so i can forward it back to PayPal for your money to be put through or you can email it to PayPal directly,that is alright as well.

Here is my pick up agent's info that you will need to send the money to through Western Union transfer:

Mary Rogerson
SW Lakehurst Dr,
Port Saint Lucie,Florida 34983
USA.

I will need the address where the wheels will be picked up,as my pick up agent will contact you to book a pick up time and date after they have received payment but they will have to book a time that is convenient for you.I will be glad you send the money out to the agent information above and get back to me with the western union details towards smooth and fast accreditation of your funds with (£850 pounds) into your PayPal personal account today.

Cheers,
Danny.


Hi Danny,

If you can send the money through paypal thats great, a transfer is fine because if I send an invoice I'll be stung for the charges.
My paypal email is **************

When I recieve payment I'll update the advert as sold and when you know a date/time for collection I will be able to give you a pick up address.

Many Thanks


Hi Martin,
Thank you for your response...My name is Danny Miles,I am currently out of town at the moment. I am buying the wheels for my son and the price is fine with me.I can only pay through PayPal as I don't have access to my bank account online/internet banking, but I have my bank account attached to my PayPal account and this is why I insisted on paying you through PayPal. So please get back to me with your PayPal invoice or PayPal email address,phone number and your name.... so I can proceed with the payment and after I have made the payment, I have a pick up agent that will come around for pick up of the item from your location.

Hope to read from you with the requesting payment details asap...

Thank You,
Danny.

Thank you for your response, I am an oceanographer and I am currently on sea at the moment. I am buying the wheels as a surprise gift for my son because his birthday is close. He won't know anything about them until they get delivered to him on his birthday. I can only pay through PayPal as I don't have access to my bank account online/internet banking, but I have my bank account attached to my PayPal account and this is why I insisted on paying you through PayPal. So please kindly open an account at http://www.paypal.com if you don't have one and get back to me with your PayPal email address and phone number so I can proceed with the payment and after I have made the payment, I have a pick up agent that will come around for verification and to pick it up.
Thank You, Regards
