| Tractor saleRamond answered a classified ad we had with \"Farms and Farm Machinery\" for a tractor we had for sale . He sent a text message providing his email address for price and further details on the tractor. He emailed back wanting our Paypal or bank details to transfer the money and he would arrange to have the tractor transported to Darwin by his own courier. His next email claimed he would deposit the cost of transport along with the money for the tractor in our account and asked that we arrange to transfer the money for the courier by Western Union to China - the supposed head office for his courier. We offered to arrange for a local courier as we were a little suspicious but he replied by saying he used the courier previously and also wanted the tractor checked out before removal to Darwin. He also asked that we take the ad for the tractor off the website. This led us to do a search for his name and came up with previous scams. We will contact our bank tomorrow to make sure he hasn\'t attempted anything untoward there |
