Thank you for the mail,i am okay with the little details have read in the advert compare to the others have seen recently and please Does it have any more history I should be aware of and why are you selling if you don\'t mind my asking.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 20days off and 11days on,which is why I contacted you with internet messaging facility.
I am buying it for my first son who just graduated ontop of his class at Charles Darwin University in NT ,He studied Building Design & Architecture. I want it to be the perfect graduation gift and a surprise package for him .Where is it located at the moment and I will really appreciate if you can email more info.
In regards to payment ,all i will need is your bank details or pay pal payment email and name to set up purchase,as i don\'t have access to my bank account online as am not with my credit card details here on our mine site but i have my ANZ bank account linked up with my PayPal account so I will be paying you through PayPal to your nominated bank account .Have been introduce to a reputable shipping company that will handle the delivery after the payment clears to your account.I will really appreciate if you can email more info..
Thanks and 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 $1,250aud 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 okay with you if I add the $1,250aud 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.
PS,I was told that the delivery will take approximately 14days so I will appreciate if you can help me post the rego papers after 12days of pick up as i dont want my son to receive the rego paper before the bike ,He like surprises .

After posting an Ad to sell a car, I was contacted by a 'Chris Williams' (email@example.com) saying he would like to purchase the car for his son 'Luke B. Chris' in the Northern Territory.
He said that he works as an Operations Manager for 'New Zealand Oil and Gas (NZOG)', and was currently on an oil rig too busy to talk on the phone. He planned to organize a courier to pickup the car, who would need to be paid in advance.
He then send a fraudulent email that was crafted to look like a paypal receipt. The header was modified to seem like the sender was 'firstname.lastname@example.org' while it was actually 'email@example.com'.
He then asked for $2000 of the imaginary payment to be sent via MoneyGram to

He try to purchase the car from me,claiming because of his work commitment in New zealand he has no access to the phone so we had contacted via email only. Purchase the vehicle for his son as a present and surprise after his graduation,without have to come of inspection,then he asked me for my bank detail.
Fortunately i have red the Scamdex Scammer Notification Service that how i realized he is a Scammer. i just hope more innocents peoples won't get into his Scam,hopefully one day he will able to rid off him from this world.
Just read what he describe himself when he attempt to scam somebody,he wrote exactly the same text to everyone he try to scam,he had only have to changed his name and different email.
So watch out about someone try to purchase something from you and they are oversea it is most likely 99.9% is a SCAM.
Good luck to everyone.
