First off I advertised my mattress on Gumtree Sydney, then got the below message.

1st message = (Hello is your furniture still for sale......please advise me on your last price and present condition on my email at(Katejenkins6111@gmail.com)thanks)

I replied and got another message

2nd message = (Thanks for your quick response.Am okay with the price and condition as stated on your AD.So keen to get the item before my arrival, because i will be coming home soon from work.I work in a petroleum project rig offshore company in New Zealand Taranaki Basin kupe project.Would have love to reach you on phone but we do not have access to phone network at the moment,due to heavy storm which affected our phone's network for days,that's why I contacted you with internet messaging facility.Won't be able to come for the inspection due to the nature of my work.Will be paying you through PayPal or transferring the money from my paypal wire bank transfer to your bank account,pls get back to me with your PayPal details or bsb bank details, so i can proceed with the payment into any of the two and contact the courier agent who will come to pick it up and deliver it in my place. Await your response)

I then searched goole for Kate Jenkins and Kupe Basin to see if she is real and found Scamdex with the exact same email.
