His plan is to send you a fake Paypal payment using a free email provider. The email will look real but it is not from Paypal.

The fake Paypal email will tell you that you have to pay his mover, shipper or agent via Moneygram or Western Union before your fake money is released.

He is attempting to steal your money. No one will ever come to pick up the vehicle.

Paypal would never hold your money. Alway log into Paypal directly with any links to check your balance. This same scam works with fake checks.

Sell your vehicle face to face. Please keep your messages within Craigslist mail system. Scammer hate when you do this. Please do not provide buyers your text number or private email address.

Please contacta moferatorstor if you have a question or information about this post.

Please do not tell the scammer he is posted here.

Please remember the fallen.

Thanks for the advise. Fortunately I did not lose a penny! However someone else might. I have the cell number that he used to contact me. Would it help to post it? I have all his messages saved, and the wording is almost verbatum as to what I have seen posted here. Any help I can provide, let me know!

The grammar is off and the story just did not make any sense, so I goggled him and found he has sent similar messages to others. Thank you everyone for exposing these scammers
