Identical to others reported with same scammer details...
In response to my ad on carsales.com.au - I received a WebSMS straight away after the ad going public... almost immediately after listing....
The text asked whether the car is still for sale and my firm price.
It also asked to respond via e-mail only.
I received an e-mail back (as below) asking for my paypal or bank details.
The message had the feel of a scam...
Searched name on google and found two other scamdex.com warnings.
The email is identical to the tip-off listed on 23 October,2015, a total cut and paste.
carsguide.com.au explain the scam...
One example of a common scam targeted at car sellers is a buyer who offers to purchase (without inspecting) the vehicle and offers to pay via PayPal. Due to them being interstate or overseas, they claim they will organise and pay for a freight company to pick up the vehicle. They will then claim an issue with paying the freight company so instead offer to pay you more and ask you to pay the freight cost into a western union account. The buyer then sends fake PayPal receipts to the seller (you) showing the extra funds. The seller is scammed after they have paid the funds into the account and then find out that the original payment into PayPal was faked.
Thanks for getting back,i'm cool with the price 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,please get back to me with your paypal details so i can process the payment,you can alternatively send your bsb acct name and number if you have no PayPal acct.I have also contacted my courier who will come for pick up and deliver it to my place in Darwin after the whole fund has been cleared into your acct.
