I was selling caravan on gumtree,got email from sarawilliam611@hotmail.com asking what firm price was,I emailed her back with price. I then receive email back. Thanks for mailing back Am ok with price but would be glad if you would state any issues with present condition and service history, I work with New Zealand oil and gas(nzog) and we are presently offshore in New Zealand Taranaki Basin on Kupe project. We do not have access to phone at moment due to bad mobile network and that's why I have contacted you with internet messaging facility regarding the payment.pls get back to me with your paypal details so I can process with payment,or I can pay you through my paypal direct bank deposit,using my paypal instant bank wire transfer service,all I need is your bank details. I have also contacted my courier who will come for pickup after the whole fund has been cleared into your account. Await your reply. I have since looked on scamdex.com and she has same phone number as Sean Galbraith another scammer
