Initially I received a text within a few hours of listing my SUV on Gumtree, asking me to contact them at an email address with best price I could do for the vehicle.

They replied..
\"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,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.

I advised I had Paypal and would also need some ID.

They replied with..

\"Alright thanks for your response,you can get back to me with your bank details or paypal email address 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.

Something didn\'t seem right, they were too eager, they asked for no further details about the slight cosmetic marks and spelling, grammar and method of typing seemed artificial.

I then did a search on the email address and found Scamdex.. Thank you to everyone else for posting up info, hopefully they, and now I have helped others.
