He is still using the same name contact details today Nov 1st 2013. Trying to buy my car as a gift for his son using agents to collect it. western union transfer to usa needed 1st etc etc
PAYMENT MADE


I just want to inform you that i have just completed the payment and i
hope you must have been notified in your paypal email about the
payment i made through PayPal, you can check your (inbox,junk or spam) for
confirmation of payment, I have just make the payment of £1,600,i have
decided to add the amount of £300 which i paid through paypal, So
please i will like you to help me wire the sum of £250 to my agent via
western union so he can be able to come for the pick up and also
paypal said they won't release the funds until they get the western
union information from you due to the fact that i emailed them about
the excess payment i made.i will need you to send the £250 to my pick
up agent Headquarters where they normally confirm any commission
payment to via western union money transfer(this can be done from the
post office, as they usually have a western union agent there), i
added extra £50 to cover the western union charges which shouldn't be
more than £20-35 but just to be sure i added £50, Here is my pick up
agent Headquarter info needed to get the money sent through western
union money transfer:

Derek Matthews,
Florence,
South Carolina
29501.
United States.

I will need the details of the transfer once you have sent fund so i
can forward to paypal . . .
1.The MTCN number that is the 10 digits number on the Western Union receipt
2.Sender's name and address used in sending the money
3.Actual amount sent.

Note - The car is going to my son in Wales and since am not
around, i really want my mover to handle the pick up and delivery.
NOTE you then get fake paypal payment requests

Got a message from John Frezie wanting me to email him details.
frezie.john002@gmail.com

I did this and got this reply.

Hello thanks for reply, i am a marine engineer, i am at sea right now.
I am buying this for my son as a surprise gift. However,does it have
any history I should be aware of? and why are you selling if you don't
mind my asking and I will really appreciate if you can email more info
and if possible more photos.  I can  only pay through paypal at the
moment as i don't have access to my bank  account online(i dont have
internet banking with it), but i have it attached to my paypal
account, and this is why i insisted on using paypal to pay,all i will
need is your paypal email address to make the payment, and if you dont
have a paypal account yet, you can set one  it cant take you less than
3mins to do that, i will be expecting your paypal email so l can pay
and your phone number.  I have a pick up agent that will come for the
pick up after payment has been sorted,  l will be waiting for your
reply asap

TOTAL SCAMMER! Luckily I have common sense so didn't fall for his ridiculous story!!

I got this message from the same guy

Thanks for the prompt response. I will be very grateful if you can send me a direct link to the ad again as I lost it after my computer restarted. Besides I will like to know more about its condition and possibly have more pictures of it I will be very glad to have more pictures of it. Do as well advise on the least amount you will like to give it away. I will be very glad to conclude this as soon as possible.

Due to the nature of my work, I will not be able to travel out of the United kingdom to come for the inspection. I will however be needing your full contact address so that I can forward it to my shipping agent here in the United Kingdom who will be coming over there for the inspection and shipping.

Thanks again and hope to hear from you soon..


What is he trying to achieve from it.???

John Frezie scamer, theif, lier, etc. I got the message back in Nov of 2011 about being at sea and a marine biologist etc. I see he is still at it. He did live in Florence, S.C, 118 Laur Ln. His wife Tiffany has 25 other names. He also lived in Peachtee, Ga. He, his wife and her family are all convicted felons.  Check them out on" Iowa Courts on line search.com." I also contacted PayPal.  I called the sheriff in Peacrtree, Ga and all I got was a recording to call back.  If you go to google maps and check street view for the address it is an empty lot with a mail box.

Hi this guy Brtyan Gravekauf emailed me regarding purchasing a biycle, thought it was suspicious as the item I was selling was £100 to buy, he then stated exactly the same comments as you have listed below.
Could not collect it, buying it as a surprise, but was adding a further £100 (shipping) to an agent with an Italian address who would be collecting the bicycle, and a  further £25 for insurance and money transaction ((agent based in Nigeria)
I contacted PayPal who emailed  me back stating that the emails I received (numerous) from this guy were phising.
This morning, I received a so called email from the F.B.I. insisting I transfer the money over .
I have again foward this to PayPal

This was from Bryan Gravekauf today so he is still at it.  The first e-mail i did answer and this was his reply:
Thanks for the reply to my question,I will want you to get back to me with some pictures cause I'm buying it as a surprise and I don't want to be disappointed,although I am presently not within reach(on work basis) but I will arrange for it to be picked up by a pick up agent which will be coming for the pickup once  the  payment  is cleared, so I don't think I will be able to come see it myself and due to protocol of my job phone conversation is limited but I will appreciate you send me close up pictures any time when you are less busy as for me to have a better look here and make my decision about buying it. I will also want to inform you that i will be making the payment for it via PayPal which I believe is safe and secured and also the PayPal charges is on me which i will also pay for, so all I need from you now is for you to get back to me with your PayPal email address for me to make the payment once you have gotten back to me with the details about it and also with the pictures as well and. I will want you to please answer this questions;
Are you the first owner of it?
Why are you selling it?
When have you been using it?
How much will you be taking off your price for me?
Hope to read back from you soon....

Just received the next email in this chain (see previous post) wording as follows......


Realize that your money is in pending the said amount has also been debited from my PayPal account and the only way to get this transaction completed is to get the shipping fee paid while you email PayPal with the transfer details for the fund to hit your account with immediate effect and more so i do believe that they are doing this just to protect both the buyer and the seller from scam and i see no reason why you can't comply or abide by the new law or rule once there is a proof of payment and a confirmation from PayPal.

This all i have to tell you, but you should know that it will cost me another charges to recall this money back into my PayPal account.

Await swift mail.


My reply was swift! ........

I see that is interesting.  I am sorry you will incur charges to get the payment back from PayPal. But I no longer wish to proceed with this sale, since you last contacted me a local buyer has offered my 4,000 euros cash without any need to involve an agent or make payments for shipping.  I hope they do not charge you too much to get your money back.  If they do not charge you I hope the local law enforcement agencies do. Now stop SCAMMING you low life!

Hey, i am glad i have researched this. i have posted a free ad for a drum kit online. i had an email from Bryan Gravenkuaf <bryangrav1@gmail.com> and after some conversation he had mentioned:

"Mark Williams

castelvolturno [ce]

Among the emailing back and forth, one read as follows:

Thanks for the reply to my question,I will want you to get back to me with some pictures cause I'm buying it as a surprise and I don't want to be disappointed,although I am presently not within reach(on work basis) but I will arrange for it to be picked up by a pick up agent which will be coming for the pickup once  the  payment  is cleared, so I don't think I will be able to come see it myself and due to protocol of my job phone conversation is limited but I will appreciate you send me close up pictures any time when you are less busy as for me to have a better look here and make my decision about buying it.

I will want you to please answer this questions;

Followed by:

Hello, I have made the payment so I expect that you should have gotten an email from PayPal as confirmation of payment, and I will suggest you check your PayPal email in-box or spam box for their emails. I want you to know that I added an extra fee of £100 to the total payment which I need you to help send to the agent coming for pick up and it needs to be sent via money gram as that's the only way they can get it. I am sorry I should have informed you but I got the urgent message from the pick up agent moments ago that they will need the funds before they can come for pick up at your location. I have notified PayPal of the procedures so there will be no problem. I also added £30 the money gram charges. Do kindly help me to send the added agent fee to my pick up agent and get back to me if there's anything you need to know.
Below is the pick up agent information..

to me
Thanks for sending me more information about the car. It was really of immense help.  I am glad to know that the car is of a good mechanical condition and has not had any accident in the past. Your sincerity is something I see very necessary to appreciate. Thanks a lot.

I have actually tried to get this car here earlier from here but most of the ones I got either have one huge mechanical fault or the other and some have even had accidents in the past while some are extremely exorbitant.My decision to try and get one from Australia is basically because the car makes conforms with the United Kingdom's as they are also right hand drives..

I am actually trying to get this car for my wife who will be adding a year to her age in about 3 weeks as this has always been a fan of this car.  So I think its worth paying whatever the shipping charges will be just to put a laughter on her face. As to the price, I will offer you $20,000 AUD So if you deem the offer good enough, I will be very glad to make the payment asap through my PayPal account as I am currently offshore and I won't definitely be able to make it to my bank to make bank wires across to you.

As to shipping, you need not worry yourself about how the car will get to me here in the United Kingdom as I will contact a shipping company here who will handle that. I will however be needing your contact address to be able to get the shipping quote from the shipping company.

Do get back to me asap with your PayPal Email and Full name so that I can remit the payment asap but If you don't have a paypal account, you can easily set up one...log on to www.paypal.com.au and sign up. its very easy.I await your reply asap.
Thanks,

Cheers


This is my response for those that could use a laugh...

Hi Taylor,

I have noticed your email come up on a scam list.
Thank you for your offer however i would like to actually receive money for my car and not get scammed.
Please kindly stop wasting precious oxygen do us all a favour find a rope, a tree and have a nice jump
