PayPal Scam

  • Monetary Loss: $0
Mr. Thomas insisted on purchasing tires I had for sale, paying through Pay Pal. The price was $1500. He said he would wire extra money for a shipping and delivery charge. I received multiple texts saying the transaction would appear in my email before my pay pal. The email I received insisted on grounds of FBI protection that I would have to withdraw the $700 delivery fee myself before receiving the $2,300 he had sent. Pay pal does not reflect. I received multiple emails from the "FBI" saying I was being reported for spam.
