Dear xxx

The PayPal authority is using this opportunity to inform you that the amount of $700.00 AUD has been included to the $1,900.00 AUD that will be credited into your bank account. The total amount of $2,600.00 AUD is now in our database waiting to be credited into your bank account. This is to inform you that we received an email from the shipping agent that the previous shipping fee will not be enough to cover the insurance to pick up the Jarrah Table & 5 chairs, the buyer has now made an additional payment of $700.00 AUD. Get back to us with the transfer details as soon as you send the $700.00 AUD so that we can credit your bank account immediately. In order for you to receive the $2,600.00 AUD you have to comply by the rules and regulations that govern PayPal authority by sending the $700.00 AUD via Western Union Money Transfer and send us the required information so that we can credit your account.

This is a scam. PayPal does not hold money waiting for money to be sent by Western Union or something to be shipped.

Thanks for posting this. We are selling a pianola and Mr Buckly emailed me that he wants it and it is needed overseas. A few alarm bells started to ring for me and I did a google search on his email address, so glad I did now. Thanks heaps, you have saved me a lot of hassle. :-)
