wanted to buy my furniture form Gumtree offered more money than I had on it. so suspicious. asked for bank acc or paypal to pay .than they would have a courier pick it up from me when the funds clear. I didn't go any further with the sale as I looked up the company and it came up with scam.

I was advertising some furniture on gumtree.com.au and received an sms from Stella (no phone number)
"Hello, is your furniture gown still for sale? advice on ur firm price with condition and email on email@example.com for quick response" which, due to the spelling and wording made me suspicious.
I then responded to the email with details of my items and received the email that was identical to the previously reported one. I then checked to see if it was a scam and found this page.
Thanks for getting back.I\'m cool with the price likewise the condition as described on the advert...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 the moment and that\'s why I contacted you with internet messaging facility.Regarding the payment,i will be paying you through PayPal linked up with my westpac bank account.Kindly get back to me with your paypal details so i can process the payment,you can alternatively send your bsb account name and number if you have no PayPal account. You do not have to bother yourself about the shipping.I\'ll instruct a Shipping Co Agent to come for pick up at your door,when you must have gotten your cash at hand...I will wait for the paypal payment to clear in your account before we proceed with the pickup,once payment has cleared in your account and money is made available,then after i will contact you on how the shipping agent will schedule the pick up time with you and deliver it to my place in Darwin after the whole fund has been cleared into your account Thanks
