This a reply from Diana to personal scam tales
1. Yes. I was scammed online. But I didn’t lose any money in the process. When I was selling a vehicle on Kijiji. A man contacted me with an offer. Then I counter offered him because it was a was much lower than the price I was asking. In return, he sent me a higher offer, a lot higher than the last and I should send the money to him well that raised the red flag for me. This time it had a strange looking Paypal attachment along with the email. I was very leery of this I thought it looked suspicious and I contacted PayPal, Well the email with the Paypal attachment was a fake and I immediately canceled the transaction and then contacted Paypal about this suspicious activity. Pay pal told me they had knowledge of the scammer and He had been at it for a while.
