Selling my car on gumtree and was surprised to get interest in it within the first hour (suss#1)with a text msg saying:
is ur car for sale? Whats the lowest price and condition of it, get back to me through my email address (lisapatrick90@gmail.com). (Suss#2)

So emailed back saying yeah its for sale and gave more details and offered to email more photos and that i didnt want to drop price.. Thought the reply was a bit suss but was too concerned about selling my car.. Reply was:
Thanks for mailing back,am ok with the price and the condition,i work with New Zealand Oil and Gas (NZOG) and we are presently offshore in New Zealand Taranaki Basin on kupe project.We do not have access to phone at the moment as its 15days off and 15days on and that\'s why I contacted you with internet messaging facility.Regarding the payment,i will be paying you through PayPal because i don\'t have access to my bank account online as am not with my credit card details here but i have my ANZ bank account link up with my PayPal account so I will be paying you through PayPal to your nominated bank account or better still is if you have a PayPal account,please get back to me with your BSB and account details or PayPal account so i can proceed with the payment.I have also contacted my courier who will come for pick up and deliver it to my place in Darwin after the whole fund has been cleared into your acct. (suss#3)

I replied explaining how to proceed with the selling/purchasing of the car and tbh it was a big headache because it was going from Brisbane to darwin and was sure she wasn\'t going to buy it or want to go through the headache of processing it.. And to my surprise got this email back:
Alright thanks for your response,you can get back to me with your bank details so i can make the payment asap, and once the money is cleared into your bank account my agent will be coming with all necessary document and will also sign the paper works on my behalf. (Suss#4)

Which was 4x too much suss for me and googled \"lisa patrick nzog\" and came up with all this scammer and avoid warnings. The end, didnt go further. Thank eff for google <3 might invest in google now!!
