He has elaborate stories of why he can\'t send money any other way or contact you other than via email. He works for New Zealand Oil & Gas Company offshore as a rigger mechanic or some such similar story! Please don\'t trust this scammer......

Purports to be working on a rig in New Zealand. Asked for Paypal details to purchase an item I am selling. Alarm bells rang and I received a similar email to one reported here.
Keep an eye out for any correspondence from this guy as he apparently asks for money.
I have reported him to Gumtree.
