This is the email received for my car advertised on Gumtree recently;
Thanks for the response,I would have loved to call you directly but due to the nature i work with New Zealand Oil and Gas (NZOG) and we are presently offshore in New Zealand Taranaki Basin on kupe project work, we do not have access to phone at the moment,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 ,He studied Building Design & Architecture. I want it to be the perfect graduation gift for him and am making it a surprise package ,Does it have any history I should be aware of? and why are you selling if you don't mind my asking. I don't mind adding an extra $300.00 for you just to take down the posting..I am already in talks with freighters that will handle the pickup and delivery .I will really appreciate if you can email more info

Due to the nature of my work i am a very busy man working all day, am a (Operating Manager) am presently on-board, i don't have access to my bank account online as am not with my credit card details here but i have my ANZ bank account link up with my PayPal account so I will be paying you through PayPal to your nominated bank account or better still is if you have a PayPal account ,please get back to me with your BSB and account details or PayPal account so i can proceed with the payment and contact the courier agent who will come to pick it up and deliver it in NT for my son .Await your reply

I was excited for the interest, giving only my bank details & offering to pay for RWC & service to the vehicle since it would be a 'gift' for his son.

His reply;

We are good to go now I will transfer the fund into your account soon. Please am trying to sort out with the pick up agent though am having little problem with them now but hope to sort it out soon. i will email you when am done with the payment kindly take off the Ad on the gumtree advert as i will deposit the fund as soon as i am through with the courier agent.What is the selling price?

Here is my son details needed for the paper work.
Luke B. Ramond
31 rocklands drive northern territory 0810,Australia
license number - 16723654
DOB- 29th oct,1992

Then a new email arrived titled 'HOPE I CAN TRUST YOU?'

I need to inform you about this,just received an email from my pick agent headquarter in China...Am sure i did not include that in my previous email,And they said they won't come for the pick up unless i pay the agent commission fee first in order to be able to schedule a pick up time.I am a Operating Manger as my position on the Rig here,.I am so busy and can not pay the agent fees from here as they Requested that i pay them with western union So what i will do here is that i will send the payment in the total amount of $19,200.00 AUD. So once you receive the confirmation of the payment from PayPal,you will deduct the promised amount for the item which is $17,000.00 AUD and the remaining $2,100.00 AUD will be send down to my agent By Western Union.the extra $100 is main for the western union charges. i will need your personal mobile number so that i can try to text you with our company private number as soon as i transfer the fund now.

My reply:

SORRY ALL TOO HARD .... NO SALE

Didn't hear from Ramond again.
