Details of Scam Report
I advertised my car for sale on Was texted by 'Patrick' who requested email contact as he was in a remote location. After email contact he stated he was buying the vehicle as a surprise for his son who was at Charles Sturt University in the Northern Territory. After requesting more information about the vehicle he stated he would buy it and pay for freight charges. I then received an email from PayPal (fake) stating that the money including the freight charges are waiting and I had to firstly pay the freight charges to a freight company in China. He obviously has produced a fake paypal site. The details of the 'President'on the paypal site are incorrect.

Scam Email
Source of email: Thank you for the mail, am okay with the little details have read in the advert compare to the others have seen recently ,Pleas does it have any more history I should be aware of. I work with New Zealand Oil and Gas (NZOG) and we are presently on a mine site, 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. I am buying this for my first son who just graduated on-top of his class at Charles Darwin University in NT and I want it to be a surprise graduation gift for him. I will really appreciate if you can email more info in regards to the condition. Regarding the payment i don\'t have access to my bank account online as am not with my credit card details here on our mine site but i have my ANZ bank account linked up with my PayPal account so I will be paying you through PayPal to your nominated bank account or better still if you have a PayPal account .
