I had an ad on Gumtree to sell a dining table and received a text and email from this person who claimed to be working for New Zealand Oil and Gas (NZOG)wanting to buy my table. They requested my bank details and paypal account details so they could deposit money into my account. Suspecting this was a scam I directed him to go on to ebay and select the 'buy it now' option and pay for it thru my paypal account on ebay. I got no further responses.

Exactly the same wording as previous report. Replying with subject line"'furniture". We had advertised individual items under Gumtree. Did not respond to emails asking how they got our email address as it was not given on the Gumtree
"Please, let me know the furniture you have for sale because i just rent an apartment and i need a lot of furniture in my room so i would want you to email me because am at work now and busy and i would reply to your mail when am done and also do get back to me with your list price? "...........
"Thanks for getting back.I'm interested with all and i am cool with the lot price $1,250 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"
