Hi there...pls help me....
i'm been conned by scam email where i deal with this website named which advertised a car to be sold with a reasonable price. then i put my email address for the owner of the car to contact me. a few days later, on September 8th 2011, i received a first email form the car owner (Who lived in Spain) telling me that she wants to sell the car (which is registered in Malaysia) since in Spain it is left steeringweel and the fees are very high for this kind of vehicle. i deal with her for a few days and she ask me to give her the details of myself in order to proceed with the shipping processes. The car price is RM101,00 and she ask me to bank in 10% of the car price via MoneyGram for the shipping process to be started. Once she sent me the document about the shipping company (, i transfred RM10000 via money gram and a few days later she ask another 15% of the car price which is RM15000 telling that the car has been arrived at Shanghai Pudong International Airport but the China Customs dont allowed them to proceed the shipment without the 25% (10% + 15%) of the car price payment being paid. since that the shipment is almost half way to be deliver to malaysia, i transfered another RM15000 via MoneyGram. and until now, after all the money trasnfered i didnt receive the car.
