Sale of couch
 Scammer
  Information
Name:
   Rose Judith
Email Address:
   rosejudith1@hotmail.com
Offered couch for sale on gumtree. Rose Judith replied she would purchase it, asking questions about condition etc. that was already stated in the ad. Advised she would organise shipper to pick up as she couldn\'t do it personally. Shipper was from Nigeria!
Here are the three emails from her and \'PayPal\' and the shipping company. A common thread is they all require payment, verification/ authorisation through Western Union money order.

I just want to inform you that i have just completed the payment and i hope you must have been notified in your email about the payment i made through PayPal, you can check your e-mail box or junk folder for confirmation of payment, I have just made the payment of $410, i have decided to add the amount of $300 which i paid through PayPal , So please i will like you to help me wire the sum of $250 to my pickup agent via western union so he can be able to come for the pick up and also PayPal said they won\'t release the funds until they get the western union information from you due to the fact that i emailed them about the excess payment i made.i will need you to send the $250 to my pick up agent Headquarters where they normally confirm any commission payment to via western union money transfer( this can be done online at (www.westernunion.com.au) as they usually have a western union agent there), i added extra $50 to cover the western union charges which shouldn\'t be more that $20-$30 but just to be sure i added $50,and that is why i sent $410 Here is my pick up agent
