I got an SMS from \'Annie\' as soon as I posted an advert on Gumtree, asking me to email them. I got the following response, which rang alarm bells in my head. I emailed \'Annie\' and told \'her\' to f*ck off and get a job like the rest of us! Then blocked the arseh*le.

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.

Await your reply.

I too received an email within a couple of hours of placing an add on Gumtree. Exactly the same wording as everyone else has been getting. Something didn't ring true so I googled the company and on their website they warn of scammers via a link so I clicked on the link and found this site and on their advice googled Annie Snels and there she was! Why would someone query the condition of the product when it clearly says 'excellent condition'???? If something doesn't feel right, it probably isnt

I also received an email asking me to give bank details or PayPal invoice for a used wedding dress from still white. She said due to being on a ship and at sea this was the only way of corresponding and shed arrange for a courier. After giving my details she wanted me to add $500 to the invoice and then wanted me to help her with a western transfer for the courier fee - my alarm bells went up as western courier don't deliver dresses and she was ready to purchase something so important so quickly.

am happy to proceed with the payment, however i just got a confirmation mail from the shipping company now that i will need to pay for the freighting fees before they can schedule pre-shipping/ pickup date,they charged $500 aud for the pick up and delivery, but the problem is they only accept western union money transfer as form of payment which is sent to their HQ in the China.
As you are well aware of, due to the nature of my work am away and do not have access to western union, most post offices have western union section,will it be ok with you if I add the $500 aud to the amount I am transferring? and as soon as the money goes through you can help me make the western union transfer of the freighting fees through western union money transfer? You are not obliged to help me, but i will indeed appreciate your help as I am a little incapacitated here.
Cheers.

Then sends me this
Thanks for the understanding ,Please I have just made the payments now and i expected paypal to have emailed you by now,please check your spam/junk folder as I sometimes get paypal notification there,I sent $1,520 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 $600 aud i added meant for pick up and delivery,they said they have emailed you to this effect, you will need to send the $550 aud to the freighting company headquarters via western union money transfer,so that paypal can credit the $1,520 aud into your account as soon as you have emailed the western union details to them, i added extra $50 aud to cover the western union charges which shouldn't be more than $20-30 aud but just to be sure i added $50 aud, Here is the pick up agent info needed to get the money sent through western union money transfer:
Guang Yue,
118 Qiannian Lu,
Chaoyang Be
Beijing ,
Zip Code 100028,
