15 Jun (6 days ago)
I just sent the money. A total of $1,850 will be credited into your account. The receipt I got for the payment says a confirmation will be sent to your email to finish transaction. Please make sure you check all your email folders to make sure you get it and keep me posted ASAP. It was really nice dealing with a person like you. The postal address is the same as my paypal verified address which is

Scammers IP address recorded: 188.8.131.52 Trace of the IP indicated the spammer is located in Nigeria.
Scammer made contact initially via Gumtree, interested in purchasing jewellery for a gift. Said they were happy to may extra $90 for postage, even though no location was mentioned. (They trace your IP address to find out).
They then ask for more images of item to try and lure you in to thinking you have a genuine sale. They ask why you are selling it, etc. They then send you email direct, not via Gumtree, to say payment has been made and require items urgently. Of course, no money appears in Paypal account. You'll also notice email name does not match Outlook account name, and they do not use any name on the actual email. Sender requests item to be shipped to China address, not from where the email originated. Address is: Name: RAJ CLARE. Address: Chuan Mei Daxue State: Beijing City: Beijing, Country: China Zip code:100024 Phone Number: 15801431804

Same Scam as Stephen Mckenzie noted on your site June 2013 this time hes going as Greg Fisher wanting Jewellery to be sent before funds actually deposited into Paypal account a search of details found hes using the same address
Address Chuan Mei daxue dingfuzhuang Chaoyang District,
Details of the "Bite" email as follows and as you can see his grammar is bad even for an Australian who was apparently working on the rigs? ( Why would you send womens jewellery to your male friend as a birthday present in conservative China ?)
Hello, I have sent the payment from my account.....and i must say this transaction is OK.Please take note that im shipping the item to my receiver in China and here is his address below:
Name : Pleart Shawn Address: Chuan Mei daxue dingfuzhuang Chaoyang District, City: Beijing, State: Beijing, Zip code: 100024 Country: P.R. China Phone Number: 18641695795
I want you to ship the item via Auspost Express(tm)-International or REGISTERED MAIL which is only few days to destination so that he can get it as soon as possible,also as i have said earlier that this item is a gift i want you to help me wrap it will a gift wrapper and then write/specify on it "Birthday Gift" I want you to get back to me when the item have been shipped......also i want you to go through the PayPal notification email very well so that you'll know what next to do so that your account can be credited without delay. Hope to hear from you soon. Regards
This was a Gumtree Australia scam I am making this public because I would get one every week I just followed this one out of interest. I usually tell them what I think of them as soon as I get the usual \" What is your best price\" request from them to which I return with \"Which Ad as I have many\" and they come back with \"I take all of them \" ? Not very bright people these scum I told one of them it would be $25,000 for all she came straight back and said ok yes even though I only had $500 worth on gumtree. For this one I listed them for him and he then said he\'d take them all. WHY?
