Thanks for getting back to me, I'm from United State of America and really interested in buying the Item so am satisfied with the price and the conditions, I wont be able to come and inspect the goods due to my work right now my private courier will be coming for the pickup which is Parcel 2go Shipping Company.

I'm requesting this transaction to be done via PayPal, i will be responsible for all the PayPal charges on this transaction and if you don't have an account with PayPal, its pretty easy to register safe and secured to open one. Just log on to http://www.paypal.com and get your account easily with your email address Ok.

So here is the details needed from you below:

Name:
PayPal Email address:
Home Address:
Cell Phone No:
Amount:

Many Thanks.


This Scammer will arrange to send you an Invoice or notification -- Make no mistake, the document will be fake !
If you are reading this because you have received such an invoice or notification, kindly forward it to the address in my signature line and I will report the details to the appropriate authorities.

Please do not tell scammers that they are listed here - it will take them seconds to change their fake details and their new details will not be listed for any future victims to find.

Received the following SMS from number : 087 240 6545. This is one of those multi use multi tenant SMS numbers...

SMS Reads:

"Hello do you still have your instrument ,if yes please kindly get back to me on my e-mail:- [email protected]"

Definitely a scammer!

I am in South Africa.

Modus operandi:

They send you a forged PayPal email (from a gmail address, impersonating PayPal) informing that the funds have been paid into your PayPal account. (Of course this is bullshit) and they will usually include the "courier fee" that you need to pay to the supposed courier that will be collecting your item.

Then after that shortly you will get another fake email from the "courier" telling you to pay the shipping amount (usually a few hundred $) into a e-wallet or something that is not traceable. This is how they make money from victims... After the money has been paid, they just disappear and you have been scammed.

They also use WhatsApp using international numbers.

So NEVER deal with international buyers. It's not worth the risk...
ALWAYS pay attention to the email account the sender of the email is using and VERIFY.

If you have a PayPal account, if the money does not reflect in your account, its not there, no such thing about "it's still clearing" or that kind of bullshit.

Stay safe everyone!
