Default Beware of Scammer

I have been in contact with a [email protected]. He has a fony Pay Pal scam set up. He contacts you with no question about your product wires you the money right away and then he wants you to send $950 dollars western union to london. The Pay Pal sends you an e-mail assuring the money is there and will be credited to your account. He is asking you to send it to a Bradley Allan 33 Copperfield St. London UK. Dont be like me and send the $950 and never hear from him again. I gurantee there is no difference in his Pay Pal and the actual one.

Aww man.... I feel bad for you. That is a lot of money too. This is an old scam as the previous poster said. Any chance of recourse at all? I am very sorry.

Those scammers tried that on me...I knew what was going on... and I played him on and on and on...Then I said to him that I dont send any money till i have green money in my hand. These people are slick. So you've got to really be on your toes.
