Default A Guy tried to scam me today

He wanted me to send $900 pick up charge to a western union address and get a MTCN number before the money would be sent to my Pay pal account I smelled a rat and told him to get lost

Default Scammers are bad on this site

[email protected] (Robert)
[email protected] (Bruce)
Both sent almost the exact message today. I'm not sure they are even members.
Knew both were scammers from the get go. Bruce, I handled that with an invoice link on PayPal. No response. Sent a note cancelling when the Robert scammer sent a message wanting me to cancel anything in process. Lol. I'm still messing with this one right now because he sent this:

I wish to inform you that i would be adding an extra $900 to the money am transferring into your PayPal account, which is for the charged pick up fee for the pick up company to register the (Bike)for pick up, so you'll help me send it to my pick up company via Money Gram after the payment confirmation...OK?

Here's my reply:
Just use your Paypal account to send the extra money to me. You just enter my email address and it will be here but don't forget to pay for the bike first.


Thanks everyone for posting on scammer email addys & names!
