Details of Scam Report
I made an advertise in gumtree for my car sale. I got a mail saying that she is in out of sea and she is interested to buy my car. But, she asked me to transfer $900 to shipping agent through western union money transfer. Luckily, I made a search in Google and found it is scam mail which I got. Thank god.

Scam Email
Email 1: Thanks a lot for the email. I am away at sea at the moment,i work with New Zealand Oil and Gas (NZOG) and we are presently offshore in New Zealand Taranaki Basin on kapo project. We do not have access to phone at the moment,its 15days off and 15days on,which is why I contacted you with internet messaging facility. Where is it located at the moment? am very satisfied with your advert,i will like you to get back to me with is present condition and i want it delivered before my arrival.I won\'t be able to come for the inspection due to the nature of my work and i would have called but our calling is restricted.Regarding the payment,pls get back to me with your final asking price and your paypal details so i can process the payment,you can alternatively send your bsb and acct number if you have no paypal acct.I have also contacted my courier who will come for pick up after the whole fund has been cleared into your acct. ********************************************************************************************************************************************** Mail 2: Thanks for the understanding ,Please I have just made the payments now and i expected paypal to have emailed by now,please check your spam/junk folder as I sometimes get paypal notification there,I sent $6,000 aud in all, paypal said they would be holding the funds and it won\'t be credited into your account because of the excess payments of $1,000 aud i added meant for pick up and delivery,they said they have emailed you to this effect, you will need to send the $900 aud to the freighting company headquarters via western union money transfer,so that paypal can credit the $6,000 aud into your account as soon as you have emailed the western union details to them, i added extra $100 aud to cover the western union charges which shouldn\'t be more than $60-80 aud but just to be sure i added $100 aud, Here is the pick up agent info needed to get the money sent through western union money transfer: Gunn Lundeby Rodtvetveien 18 B OSLO NORWAY COUNTRY: Norway ZIP CODE: 0955 Cheers!
