I just wanted to make others aware to be careful. I put my car that I'm selling on a cars online website on Saturday. We have used it before and had no issues. On Monday I had a message to contact an interested buyer so we liaised by email, negotiated a price and she said she would pay into my pay pal account. She asked if she could pay the amount for transporting the vehicle on top of the buying price and I pay it into a Western Union account via Australia post for her because she didn't have access to a branch. I thought ok that sounds reasonable. So then I get emails from pay pal saying she has transfered the money to my pay pal account but I need to pay the transport cost into the Western Union account before the funds will actually be released to my account. I could tell the person wasn't english by her wording. I thought it odd that the transport company was an international transport company thinking i needed to protect myself in case the car was being transported out of the country and involved in illegal goings on or such. Anyway I paid the transport fee and then called Pay Pal to advise them so they would release my money to be told that I had been scammed, they advised I would probably get harrassing emails. I had a brief panic attack and called Western Union who advised the recipient hadn't collected the money yet so the transaction was stopped and I then went back to the post office and got a refund. Thank god! I was none the wiser as the emails from pay pal seemed legit. I then started getting emails from fraudulent pay pal saying I needed to make deposit of the $1,500 within 24hrs to avoid legal action. I have closed down my pay pal account and my bank account that was linked to it. I then had to re open a new bank account and change bank details with our pay rolls etc. What a pain in the bum. You just don't think these things will happen to you. Apparently there's been lot's going around re this sort of thing but I hadn't heard of it.
