I’m selling my classic and a scammer replied. The old ‘I’m at sea, I’ll pay you with PayPal and I’ll send a shipper over” trick. I was wondering if I can counterscam.

Anyone have any idea how I can take (some of) his money without risking anything myself?

Here’s his email:

Thanks for the response Does it need anything to be replace or repair? if theirs please specify,what is your last price? I will arrange for a private shipper to come over for picking it up down to my place after payment has been received. I will be making the payment through PayPal as paypal is very safe and secured for transactions online, advice soon as I’m at sea at the moment as a marine engineer and due to the nature of my work, phone calls making and visiting of website are restricted but i squeezed out time to check this advert and send you an text regarding it, I would appreciate if you email me with more pictures (if available) too,since i won’t be be able to see this in person, if you don’t have paypal account you can sign up paypal account at www.paypal.de. I will need the following details below to send funds to in order for me to pay you ASAP.
