Details of Scam Report
The scammer sent me a message via "Gumtree" asking if an item was still for sale - if it was, the message asked to email with confirmation - upon doing so, the email reply I received is as below. The conversation went back and forth about details of paypal email address and it seemed legit, until I received the payment confirmation email from Paypal in my Spam folder - a phishing attempt done fairly well but failed because my spam caught it.

Scam Email
Thanks a lot for the email. Am buying it for my son who just graduated ontop of his class in Autralia national university (ANU) ,he studied Business Law and Professional Ethics Minor and am so proud of him . I want it as a suprise package to appreciate him towards his achievement and to be delivered before my arrival NT as my family lives in NT. I work with AWE New Zealand Pty Ltd and we are presently offshore in New Zealand Taranaki Basin on kapo project. 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. Where is it located at the moment?Does it have any history I should be aware of? and why are you selling if you don't mind my asking.I am already in talks with the courier that will handle the pick-up and delivery it in NT. As regards the payment, I can pay you through direct bank deposit,using ppal instant bank wire transfer service, I will need your bank details. If you are not comfortable with that, you can set up a paypal account proper at I will make the payment through paypal, this way, all I will need is your paypal email address. And again i have sent some of my co-worker to search this for me so you can see this kind of email so deal with me directly Thanks and reply asap.
