  Information
Name:
   Solomona Ulu
Email Address:

This Solomona messaged me and asked to email my reply to an add I had listed on Gumtree. Unsuspecting me emailed him and advised that the item was still for sale. He explained that he was working for New Zealand Oil and Gas and he was working offshore in New Zealand. He works 15 days on and 15 days off. He explained that I could not reply by message because he was in a remote area.. He replied quickly advising that he was happy with price and condition and asked me for PayPal details or Bank Account and he will pay into the account and that he had been in contact with his courier who was going to collect and return to his home in Darwin.

I gave him my paypal details and feeling funny I googled New Zealand Oil and Gas and up came all these scam details. I have contacted PayPal and advised them of the scam and replied to him advising no PayPal account that works and to arrange Cash on Delivery.
