Got an offer to buy my couch on Gumtree. Buyer was eager and wanted bank details and was willing to buy without seeing the goods. Also concocted a BS story about working on an oil rig and having to send his agents to pick up the goods.

I search the below email and found it has already reported. I recieved these emails. Almost identical to the other one already listed. it read...

I replied and then received this.
"I was just about to pay when i had this problem with the pick up, my pick up agent says i will need to pay for the pick up before they can schedule a pick up time, they charged me $750 for pick up and delivery and payments for pick up made through them is made to their corporate international headquarters in China and the payments is made through western union money transfer, i will add the $750 to the money i will send as soon as i have made the payments,i will need you to help me send the money to my pick up agent HQ in China through western union money transfer, this can be done from any post office,there is always western union money transfer section in most post offices or you can get it done online via www.westernunion.com,i would have done it myself but as i am at sea and didn't bring my credit card aboard,.I will appreciate your help here."
I replied to clarify but suspected a scam.
