Scammer Information Details of Scam Report
I advertised a vehicle for sale on Gumtree, was texted immediatly and then emailed. Here follows the correspondence -
I really appreciate your quick response and indeed very motivated to purchase from you, I am the tool pusher on the west Aquarius semi-submersible,contact via phone would have been the easiest means to talk to you, but we are out of cell phone range and the satellite phone is playing up, email is the best means of contact for me at the moment and i hope you can accommodate me on this? Firstly I will like to know few things about this sales? What is the reason for selling it? when last was it serviced as well. Am ok with the price and the condition, but work does not permit me to come for the inspection (very busy and currently out of town) and i would have asked my courier agent to come and help me pay in cash,but due to the terms and condition of there services they don't help in paying on behalf of someone for security reasons.. I will be paying you through PayPal the safe and easy way to pay online.. Kindly get back to me with your PayPal details(name and email address) so i can proceed with the payment immediately, but If you don't have a PayPal account you can easily set up one just log on to (www.paypal.com) and sign up as its very easy. But I can as well use the paypal wire transfer method to make the payment into your bank account, I will need your name, bank account number and the BSB.
Note:Please provide your address in your reply so that my shipping agent can locate you when coming for the pick up also will sign the transfer papers and deliver it in my place.I will also like you to remove the Advert online and consider me as your favorite buyer
