Well they are still out there scamming. I got a message from Daniel Gibson this morning. Totally identical to the other messages to other people except that we are selling a boat. Do not send money to this crook. Very glad I checked him out.

I'm curious to know how the scam works. Does PayPal not guarantee payment!

We had an issue with Pay Mate (similar crowd) in our on-line store, some twot in the UK paid with his Visa card, get this, 3 months later turns out they/he/she used a stolen card and Pay Mate took the money back :( still considering the on-line sales, is it worth the risk!

how i wish to come and testdrive this car but not possible as i'm currently away from the country. I'm a marine engineer who's on a ship right now in Bahamas. I'll be paying via PayPal and i'm more than happy to pay the PayPal transfer charges too. Due to the distance as i'm in Bahamas presently, i'll arrange the pick-up of the car with a Private Courier Service as soon as you get your payment, I need you to provide the following details so that i can proceed with the Payment.

Your PayPal e-Mail Address :
Final Price :

After i make the payment and you get the funds the Courier Service will come and pick up the car at your home at your convenient time also the courier will help me sign the required papers.

Have a nice day

yea i got exactly the same message lol, total scam

I got a similar email for a harley davidson part I was advertising, it was only worth $300. These guys must have some sort of software setup that searches for a particuliar word or words, and automatically emails that listing. His email said he had a friend picking it up, so I told him "don't bother with Paypal, get your friend to pay me on pickup" . that was the last I heard from him.

How do you know it was a 'him' Deborah, it might have been a 'her'. Could you tell by the font that they used in the e-mail or what !

There are lots of shady 'hers' out there too you know.
