I have a wedding dress advertised on Gumtree, also ebay... first I received an SMS from +61477751492
\"Hi, please is your dress advert listing on gumtree still for sale? Contact me on (annelllson118@gmail.com), no text pls\"

I replied with:

\"Yes it\'s still for sale\"

EMAIL 1 Received:
\"Thanks a lot for the email. I am away at sea at the moment,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 15days off and 15days on,which is why I contacted you with internet messaging facility. Where is it located at the moment?

am very satisfied with your advert,i will like you to get back to me with is present condition and i want it delivered before my arrival.I won\'t be able to come for the inspection due to the nature of my work and i would have called but our calling is restricted.Regarding the payment,pls get back to me with your final asking price and your paypal details so i can process the payment,you can alternatively send your bsb and acct number if you have no paypal acct.I have also contacted my courier who will come for pick up after the whole fund has been cleared into your acct.

Await your reply.\"

MY REPLY:
It\'s on EBAY, I suggest for you to buy it there.

EMAIL 2: \"I dont ave account with eBay so kindly get back to me with your final asking price and your PayPal or bank details so i can make the payment asap. Cheers\"

MY REPLY:
I sent a paypal payment request which required registration, already aware of the scam...

FEW hours later EMAIL 3 Received:

\"Thanks for the payment details 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 $500 aud 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 ok with you if I add the $500 aud 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.

Cheers.\"

MY RESPONSE (to see how far this goes):
Sure, I need to wait to get paid, but I\'m happy to do it. If you can send me the Western Union details I\'ll get it sorted for you.

NO response yet... haha

What an asshole!
