Scammer Information Details of Scam Report
I have a 2002 car for sale via carsales.com.au. I was surpriesed to hear from "belinda" by text the dya after I posted the ad. Mind you the ad at that time had no pictures of the car yet becasue I uploaded them the next day yet this person was keen to send me the money without inspecting the car or even seeing how the car looked like. They did ask the right quesitons but the story just sounded odd so I knew it was too good to be true, besides all this effort for a $5000 car? The first email when like...
" Thanks a lot for the email. 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 15 days off and 15 days on,which is why I contacted you with internet messaging facility. Where is it located at the moment?
What's the present condition?final asking price?how many owners has it had?does it need anything to be replace or repair??has it ever been in a crash?When last do you service it? I won't be able to come for the inspection due to the nature of my work and i would have called but our calling is restricted and i want it delivered before my arrival..Regarding the payment, I can pay you through direct bank deposit (EFT),using PayPal instant bank wire transfer service.I will need your Account name,BSB and Account number. If you are not comfortable with that, you can set up a PayPal account properly at www.PayPal.com.au and I will make the payment through PayPal,this way, all I will need is your PayPal email address.. I have also contacted my courier who will come for pick up after the whole fund has been cleared into your acct and deliver it in Northern Territory for me
With the issue of my details,transferring the name of ownership and signing of all paperwork will be done by the pick up agent.If you are not comfortable with that, you can cancel the registration and i will buy Unregistered.
...This is obviously a scam.Stay alert and don;t be duped!!!
