They contact you asking to buy your free classified bike for sale they tell you they will pay thru Paypal which sounds legit and once you\īve done the deal they say they will send you the money + $550 to pay for their delivery agent whom is supposed to pick up your bike on their behalf then you receive a fake Paypal email saying thay have paid but paypal is holding payment until you pay the $550 to their agent.It\īs all fake paypal does not hold payments.The paypal emails look very real they even have links.The scammers have an england adress and will hound you to pay them.I rang Paypal and was told about the scam.Suggestion don\īt use free classifieds for advertising as they are targeting these classifieds.Anyhow hope this helps someone out there.PS I get more scam mail than spam mail these days it is really annoying I don\īt understand why it\īs so hard to track these guys down.Goodluck guys
