Was scammed today just the same way by

tracyb974 has sent you a message:

RE: Beautiful dress 

Hi,
Let me know if the dress is still available for sale…reply to (briantracey974 AT yahoo.co.uk) for quick sale.
Cheers.

then we agreed to paypal and i sent an invoice 

then I got this 

Hello Liz,
Sorry for the late in update. I just want you know that i have made the payments out to you and PayPal emailed me confirming this…So please check your PayPal email address at ([email protected]) for the PayPal payment confirmation mail. PayPal said that they would be holding the money i sent because of the excess payments that i made which was the money for pick up of the item, I will need you to proceed and Wire the excess which is $300 to my pick up agent to enable them make a booking for the picked up of the item.Remember that you are going to wire the agent fee to them via western union Money transfer as that is there method of payment.
 
So please do send the $300 through western union money transfer and use the remaining change of $50 as western union charges.You can easily Walk to the local post office or any Western union outlet around you.After you have sent the money please get back to me asap with the western union details, the MTCN number which you will be given by WESTERN UNION after you have sent the money as well as the sender’s name and address so i can forward it back to PayPal for your money to be put through or you can email it to PayPal directly,that is alright as well.
Here is my pick up agent’s info that you will need to send the money to through western union money transfer:
 
Mathew Perez 
201 plot bs 
Akpakpa,Cotonou,00229.
Benin.
 
I will need the address where the dress will be picked up,as my pick up agent will contact you to book a pick up time and date after they have received payment but they will have to book a time that is convenient for you.I will be glad you send the money out to the agent information above as you promised to do this afternoon and get back to me with the western union details towards fast accreditation of your account with ($950.00) today.
Regards,
Tracey.
 
PLEASE BEWARE
