Betreff: ** SECURITY MEASURES AND COMPANY POLICY NOTIFICATION **


Dear ******,

We have received a message about your non cooperation, recalcitrance or possible doubt about the remittance of your funds after you complete the shipping payment instruction given.

This transaction case has been filed and sent to the higher authorities but before we take further steps through our legal bodies. We want you to know that PayPal is not a small company. We are all over the world, we are PayPal international. We have our credibility and name to protect and that is the more reason why we take security measures in every transaction through our company.

Secondly, we want you to know that each and every organizations/companies have their own unbreakable policies and all monetary/payment enterprises do not work the same way therefore we cannot change our security policies in your case.

We know you did not enter into any mutual agreement to send the shipping funds upfront but you also have to consider that this instructions to have the shipping funds sent was advised by PayPal, not your buyer and this is a security precaution to have a safe and smooth transaction as the transaction cannot be canceled nor the funds retractable.

We want you to know that we have our international standard and reputation, that's why we have ourselves a large number of customers and we are only here to offer them the best security service so that their mind can be at ease that their money is being safely handled. You are also one of our numerous customers and your membership on our community is of great value to us, that is why we will serve you with our very best security strategies so that you will have a good recommendation about our company though it might seems annoying and extorting at first but at the end of the transaction,you will be happy for your safe delivery of your total fund into your account.

We are sorry if our security measures and legal action processes are too much of a hassle for you but we want you to know that this all is done to protect you and your buyer from dubious activities on the PayPal system as we have had some experience with some bad customers in the past albeit they have already been punished for trying to play fraudulent on our other customers. So this is why we do take legal steps after 24hours of non-response to our notifications from our customers. We hope you can also understand that the safety of your money will be our priority.

We stated in our last message to you that your funds are safe with us so you do not have to worry about any risk whatsoever because you will receive your funds in your account approximately 1-2hours after you email us the western union details. You are our customer and you have to abide by our rules and regulations, you are not in the position to instruct us on how to run our policy nor change our security measures. We want you to understand that the shipping fees we requested of you through western union was demanded for by the shipping firm because that is the shipping company's business method of accepting payments and without payment to the shipping company, there will never be any shipment of the merchandise and that will make the whole transaction void. Moreover as we already stated earlier, It was not the opinion of your buyer nor the shipping firm that PayPal should take security precautions but this procedure is a strong security measure taken by PayPal in handling this kind of transactions and it cannot be altered as we have had bad experiences with dubious buyer's and sellers in the past.

You have 100% guarantee from us that your money is safe and will be credited into your account as soon as we receive the western union details for the shipping fee.

Once again, according to our policies stated in the payment confirmation receipts issued to you, we have the rights to start up all legal actions according to PayPal's policy after 24hours of non positive response from you so we do hope you make it timely.

We need you to complete our instructions as a honest and legitimate seller by sending the shipping funds requested so kindly get onto that as soon as you can but if you still think this is some fraudulent attempt, then we will have to take legal steps against you and you'd confirm for yourself when you are contacted by the law officers.

We are truly sorry for any inconveniences caused and we hope to read from you as soon as possible.

Thank you for using PayPal,

Betreff: PAYMENT HAS BEEN MADE FOR======

I just completed the payment with paypal just now and i hope you will have
been notified that i issue out the payment already as i got a deduction
message here also. I made the total of $700 and $350 for the shipping fee
pick up and the western union charges. So kindly forward the sum of $300 to
the shipping company via western union as i hope they should have contacted
you also and email paypal once transfer is done with the information
required as they said they won't release the funds until they get the
western union information from you due to the fact that i emailed them
about the excess payment i made. I will need you to send the $300 to the
pick up shipping company Headquarters where they normally confirm any
commission payment to via western union money transfer
Here is the pick up shipping company info needed to get the money sent
through western union money transfer

First Name: Elambaarathi
Last Name: Viswakevu
LG2 Menara Mbf, Jalan Sultan
City: Selangor
State: Kuala Lumpur,
Zip Code: 50250
Country: Malaysia.

Please kindly email the necessary details to paypal :the mtcn which you
will be given at the western union after the $300 has been sent.You should
send the money soon so that the agent can schedule time and you would know
when the Pick Up would commence, make sure you're home. I advice you to
check both your inbox or junk/spam folder for the payment confirmation
message..The shipper would be coming around to your area to have the
merchandise picked up once you have sent the shipping fee to them, as i
need you to let me know what time you want them to come and where (your
address & phone # you can be reached on)

I will be waiting to hear from you once the money has been sent to my
shipper.
Thanks.

Alright Mate,

I am interested in buying your item. I wish i could come for viewing and inspection as am currently out of the country at the moment and i want it picked up before my arrival, though i will be back in couple of weeks. I would like to pay you using paypal due to my inability to make a bank deposit which is safer for me. Kindly send me a paypal payment invoice or create an account with paypal on http://www.paypal.com.au if you dont have one. I will make a solid pick up arrangement with the shipping company who will be coming over for pick up once you receive full payment into your paypal account. Have a nice day. Few more photos will be appreciated as well.

I used to get wound up by scam mails, so I took up scam baiting and now I irritate them as much as I can, but that takes up your time and, if you don't have any. it's not an option.

I'd reply that only a fool would pretend that Pay Pay uses Western Union to make payments and to suggest otherwise is idiocy that makes you doubt he is old enough to use a computer without parental supervision, and if he contacts you again, you'll pass on the information about his Malaysian accomplice to the police in Malaysia who are only to keen to receive the details of criminals operating within their jurisdiction.

Often it's a mistake to bother to reply to scammers but the Malaysian authorities are particularly tough on scammers and he may not want to risk provoking you in to carrying out your threat.

Hy TerranceBoyce THX for your response! Yeah I have a family and a real life otherwise I would love to
give those *##***$%& a hard time...PLUS on the other hand I did accidently give out my address :-(
and who knows what these criminal *###***§$% are up to??? Thats why I am not considering to report them to the Malaysian authorities. I just hope the scam Mails stop soon I am like blocking every day!
#160350 by TerranceBoyce Wed Apr 03, 2013 7:24 am
I wasn't suggesting that you really report them Seagerlin, but just make the threat.

Scammers like to annoy and irritate people they target, but it's a mistake to react to it. You can either ignore them, and they will eventually go away or, if you want to try to make them stop, don't get in to a 'flame war' but be calm, cool and make it clear that threats are childish and don't concern you at all and, give them something to worry about.

I don't promise it will work, but scammers only want money from you any way they can get it, and as long as they're getting to you, they won't let go.

#160665 by Dotti Thu Apr 04, 2013 11:49 pm
Names, addresses, and personal information he gave you will be fake. The address may be real, but he certainly won't live there.

The most he will do is send you the fake paypal email, and then try to send you a few threatening emails when you don't send money. Ignore him and move on.

My only option rightnow will be paypal. because I prefer to use paypal for most onlinetransactions, You can easily get money in your paypal and transfer itinto your bank account let me know and keep me posted asap.

I've also had mike Morris or [email protected] email me in regards to prices of furniture it seemed to good to be true.

I sent him an invoice today via PayPal then he mentioned about the whole shipping and how he would have to pay me extra to pay it by western union.

Then it all seemed a little to suss. I just said the items
We're with my elderly motherly and that she could not get to a western union branch and that he would have to pay at a branch and that I've done this at branches overseas. Waiting to get a reply now haha.

What I'm confused about is does he actually make a payment or not via PayPal ?
#161234 by b_karv Mon Apr 08, 2013 10:21 am
Got something similar just today except he used the alisas Nathan Swales, got to hand it to him he knows how to pick daper english names. He wanted me to pay to a western account under the same name:

Name: Elambaarathi Viswakevu
Address: Jalan Tun Ismail 1
City: Kuantan
State: Kuala Lumpur
Zip Code: 25200
Country: Malaysia

I ended up sending the following:
MY EMAIL
Dear Elambaarathi Viswakevu,

It was agreed that the transport payment will be made once the funds are cleared, this is now not the case. Also paypal confirmed your email is a fake transaction, where I now suspect fraudelent actitivity. As of yet I have not receieved any funds in my paypal account hence I have cancelled the invoice/payment request sent to you due to the fraud actitivity. Any further harrassment made by you, now having your full contact details I will report you to the Malaysian authorities to investigate you for your fraudelent actitivities. Thank you for wasting my time, hope you have a nice life adding no value to society.

Regards,
XX

HIS RESPONSE
Are you insane .....what the hell are you talking about after deduction has take place in my acct and you're trying to tell me is fake....you must be suck....


Haven't responded back and not going too, hopefully that's the last I hear from him. It seems he uses the same last name but changes his first name (possibly a brother), I read one poor guy paid $6K to him for insurance for a boat, so I consider myself lucky although he wasted my time.

Hi all,
I lodged a complaint with the ACCC. Here's the link - https://www.scamwatch.gov.au/content/ma ... type=Other

I also got similar emails requesting money to be transfered through western union.

By the way he's also given me his number. Yes his number!! I even got a chance to speak to him!!
Yep, I asked him why the email on PayPal is ...@accountant.com.

The dude acted like he didn't know about it. He said he didn't know it was that email. He'll be forwarding me his 'shipping company' details. He's got a Philipino/Chinese accent. Told me he's working at sea.

Here's his number +91 96-50-296415. Apparently if you search his email
And number on google it'll appear as mostly scam reports.

Have fun calling him.
#162280 by tomorrowwland Sat Apr 13, 2013 1:56 am
I don't know if this has anything to do with the paypal scam, but this is to do with gum tree. I posted an ad on gumtree for a few commercial fridges etc. and I got a text to my phone from someone asking me to email them as they are interested. So I emailed this person telling them to come for an inspection and to negotiate prices and this was the first response I got:

Thanks for the mail....I am very keen. How i wish i could come for viewing and inspection as am currently overseas at the moment and i want it picked up before i get back. Due to my inability to make a bank deposit, I would be paying via PayPal which is safer for me or bank transfer as well safe. Kindly send me a paypal payment invoice or create an account at www.paypal.com if you dont have one or your bank details for me to make payment. I will make a concrete pick up arrangement with my transport agent who will be coming over for pick up once you receive full payment into your PayPal account. Have a nice day.

Cheers and pls inform other buyers you sold it as am ready to purchase it right away....Nathan


At first I thought it was a bit strange that he was willing to just purchase the equipment without inspection first, but I replied anyway simply giving him an email to which he can send paypal funds to. And I got this response next, titled "About To Make Payment":

I will be sending funds ASAP.Like i said before,i have someone (a shipping company to be precise) who will handle the pick up and paypal is organizing them as i cant be able to come for the pick up myself so i handed over this transaction to paypal and they have the address where it will be delivered to. I will be adding their charges to the total amount i will be paying you,the pick up agent head quarters is in the Malaysia and all commission payments made for pick up, from anywhere in the world is sent to their head quarters in the Malaysia and the only form of payments they accept is western union money transfer i would need you to help me transfer their charges to my shippers via western union once you get my payment confirmation.

Thanks


That's when the alarm bells went off. I'd heard to western union scams before so I replied again, saying that I will not be sending any money to third parties and that I'd only deal with him. And he sent an email titled "Payment Sent":

Hello....I just want to inform you that i have just completed the payment and i hope you must have been notified in your email about the payment i made through PayPal, you can check your INBOX/SPAM e-mail for confirmation of payment, I have just make the payment of $4,200...I have decided to add the amount of $700 which i paid through paypal, So please i will like you to help me wire the sum of $600 to my agent via western union so he can be able to come for the pick up and also paypal said they won't release the funds until they get the western union information from you due to the fact that i emailed them about the excess payment i made.i will need you to send the $600 to my pick up agent Headquarters where they normally confirm any commission payment to via western union money transfer(this can be done from the post office,or online at www.westernunion.com) as they usually have a western union agent there) , i added extra $100 to cover the western union charges which shouldn't be more that $50-70 but just to be sure i added $100, Here is my pick up agent Headquarter info needed to get the money sent through western union money transfer

To me, this whole thing was just a load of bullshit. After that second email, I did not think for a second any of this was legit. But hey, smart people can fall for scams too so here's a warning for you all not to send money to this guy.

Hello xxx,
I was just about to make the payment when i had this little problem with my travel agent,i just got an email from him that i have to balance him $800 for my daughter flight ticket in Malaysia Airline and the only form of payment they accept is western union money transfer and i tired to pay it online but i will need my credit card which i didn't bring along to the sea,and there is no post office(there is usually a western union section in most post offices) or any western union agent offshore!so i have to ask you to help me with my daughter flight fee.i will be sending two month rent fee,so i will include the $800 balance to the payment i will be making through paypal to your account for her flight ticket,please just try to help me by sending the travel agent fee,i never know this will come up,and Vivian is now planning to arrive on the 18th of April.After i have made the payment and it has been confirmed by paypal,i will need you to help me to send the $800 to my travel agent through western union money transfer,the western union money transfer can be made at any post office near to you or any western union office,there is always a western union agent in most post offices or online at www.westernunion.com. i will be making the payment shortly and i will email you as soon as it has been done.
Thanks
