Type of a scam Online Purchase
I was selling my bed on Craigslist when the guy texted me at the above phone number. He insisted that we use paypal for the transaction, yet never told me that we would have to wire money to his movers through paypal. So he said he transferred more money than what we asked for and said in order for us to get our payment we had to transfer the extra to his moving company.
Initially he never told me his name or who he was in our text. We only have the contact information thanks to the paypal email confirmation with the instructions to transfer the remaining money. I’m just glad I made my mom read the email and she totally flagged it as a scam. We knew something wasn’t right when he texted me asking to forward $500 to his movers.
