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.

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.

You advised that you\'ll organise your own courier pick up. I\'m very happy to ship it to you also, up to you. Shipping cost shouldn\'t be more that $20-30 with aust post tracking. If you want to organise own courier the pick up can be from Chirnside Park 3116 or Melbourne CBD 3000.

I will request that courier either signs proof of pick up or provided a tracking method.

Payment of the account is your agreement to the terms of purchase as per Gumtree advert.

Thanks for the understanding ,Please I have just made the payments now and i expected paypal to have emailed you by now,please check your spam/junk folder as I sometimes get paypal notification there,I sent $1,200 aud in all, paypal said they would be holding the funds and it won\'t be credited into your account because of the excess payments of $550 aud i added meant for pick up and delivery,they said they have emailed you to this effect, you will need to send the $500 aud to the freighting company headquarters via western union money transfer,so that paypal can credit the $1,200 aud into your account as soon as you have emailed the western union details to them, i added extra $50 aud to cover the western union charges which shouldn\'t be more than $20-30 aud but just to be sure i added $50 aud, Here is the pick up agent info needed to get the money sent through western union money transfer:

Yuyan Liang,
118 Qiannian Lu,
Chaoyang Be
Beijing ,
Zip Code 100028,
China .


I believe that since payment has been made, the advert should be taken off the site and please do let me know the location\'s address including your free date and time so that i can give it to my mover to use it to register the date and time they will be coming for the pick up in your location. I will be waiting to read from you as soon as you get it done


Cheers!

I\'ll send your money as soon as they hit my account. Otherwise the dress is pretty much for sale to the first person that \"actually\" pays.
You haven\'t paid me.
Please contact me if you are still interested and once you do.

Sorry I meant paypal.
My paypal account has no record of a payment.
You\'ll need to check this at your end and talk to paypal at your end.
As a seller I can only see what\'s on my account. if there is nothing there you\'ve made no payment.
Or give me your bank statement and I\'ll forward it to the right authorities to investigate here.
Also, I have another two buyers now.
So the dress will sell by tomorrow. I can only really offer the dress to the first buyer that actually puts money into my paypal. Or cash.

Finally, you are welcome to contact police and gumtree you dickhead. They have been forwarded all your comms. I just wanted to see how far you\'d go.
A copy of all these comms is online reported under scammers also if you\'d like to provide them with a record.
You have also been reported with eBay and PayPal as attempting identity fraud.
And pretty much china fraud investigations. Also India, I assume an Indian is writing these comms judging from the language syntax.
Lol!!!

Received SMS last night 3/7/2014 from Annie re a wedding dress I'd just put up for sale on gumtree wanting to know if still for sale and a contact email annelllson118@gmail.com. Emailed her to say yes and she responded with exact same email as reported by others she has tried to scam. I was suspicious last night so goggled her name and found she has tried it before. I then sent her a message telling her I'd checked her out and she was a scammer. This morning 4/7/2014 I received another SMS asking if dress was still for sale but didn't reply.
This is the email she sent me and it was sent by Annie Snels.
