Scammer Information
Details of Scam Report
I am a first time seller on the internet. Received a sms on my mobile regarding interest in buying my IPad. As a first time seller, it excites me when there is a buyer who wants to buy the product I am selling. Response to the e-mail address given in the sms. The e-mail reply was found in my mail box spam folder 2 days later. Everything in the e-mail seems convincing except for the country which the product was supposed to be sent - Africa. Having read a lot of scams coming from Africa including the famous Nigerian scam on inheriting will etc, I became suspicious and checked the net about people posing as oceanographer. Based as posting in this website, I should deduced this as a fake and forgo about selling to the buyer.

Rohana Syd To Me Jan 17 at 11:47 AM Thanks for the prompt reply. My name is Rohana S. Morris from Singapore, presently I\'m at sea as I am an Oceanographer ( I work on South Pacific Ocean in east of New Zealand). I will offer you $580 for it so as to remove the item from Gumtree as soon as possible because am buying it for my SON that will be starting a Computer science course in Africa Next week. I want the item posted via SPEEDPOST EMS fast Delivery and I hope the package will get to him in good condition. Moreover I would have prefer to send you a cheque but simply because I want you to ship the item as soon as possible as this is urgent, I will be paying through PAYPAL because I have a verified account with paypal and I will also add the shipping fee to the payment as for you to receive your full payment. I hope this will not be too much hassle for you so kindly get back to me at your earliest convenience Mrs Rohana S. Morris  Hide message history On Fri, Jan 17, 2014 at 10:06 AM, Raymond Lai wrote: Hi, yes the tablet is still on sale. The best I can give is 550.
