to me

I was about to make the payment from my PayPal account to your account, But I have a little problem with the courier agent, they said they can only schedule the pick up when they receive their money for the freight. They charged $1,850 for the pick up and delivery. But the problem is they only accept direct bank transfers as a form of payment which is to be sent to their Headquarters.
I will add the $1,850 to the amount I'm transferring for your item via PayPal.
I will be most grateful if you can help me make the Money transfer of the freight fee, Please try to get it done immediately when you receive the confirmation email from PayPal.
I will appreciate your help here and thanks for your understanding.
Thank you.

Beware of this scammer people, this was on boatsales.com.au yesterday, i actually made payment, silly me but the Commonwealth bank stopped it once they realised it was a scam, please be aware

He is a scammer. Wanted to buy my caravan with direct deposit. Said he was in WA in the mines and an agent/courier would pick up the trailer. Would not talk on the phone or have a video chat. Now his number seems to be silent, but asks to be emailed on the following email address 77nigelw @ gmail.com

After initial contact via him sending me a text, I replied with email regarding our caravan for sale on caravan camping sales. He replied with email saying he was in WA / mines / remote etc
We didn't get as far as him asking us to pay for freight as I haven't replied to his email.
I was on high alert from the start as I didn't like the tone of his text message (no manners, quite abrupt).
His willingness to purchase site unseen on a 45K camper got more bells ringing.
A quick google search of key words got me here.
Looks like he's been at it for a few years now. Maybe he needs to come up with a new story lol

This guy contacted me this evening through email in regards to our camper trailer, wanted to buy it site unseen, gave the same same story that he works in a mine in WA.
He asked for bpay which I don't have but gave him my banking details. Told him he will not receive the trailer until funds have cleared my account due to too many scammers, not realizing that he is a scammer.
Thank god I did some google searches and founds this site. I went to scam watch.gov.au but I found nothing on there when I typed in his name.

Although did send a WA licence that checked out, either hood fraud or the real Nigel has someone else with his licence details

Just found this page but i've already provided bank details to him, for my car but car still with me. What are the potential issues if he actually deposit money into it? Can he actually cancel/dispute the transaction after he receives the car?

This guy tried to buy a caravan from me listed on caravansalea.com
Sent a “fake” PayPal confirmation but then said he needed to me paid the fright conpany directly first $1850 so he could release the PayPal funds. Like the rest he said he worked in WA and didn’t have a lot reception. Clearly a scam and didnt pay the money. Has sent this emails to the fraud department of PayPal.
I thought it was odd that he wanted to but the caravan without viewing it, asking any questions etc. thanks to everyone for reporting this. Some east google searches made it easier to confirm what I already through. Emailed me from 77nigelw @ gmail.com.
