Same scam as alredy reported on your website. Asks to buy a car advertised on CARSALES .com. Says he is on an oil rig but will buy the car and have it transported to Darwin States he will transfer the money for the car and then comes up with the following email:

was just about to make the payment now when i had a little problem with the freighting arrangement, the freighters said i will need to pay for the freighting fees before they can schedule pre-shipping/ pickup date,they charged $1,650aud for the pick up and delivery, but the problem is they only accept western union money transfer as form of payment which is sent to their HQ in the China. I have tried to see if I could get the money sent to them through western union's website but unfortunately I would be needing to use a credit or debit card which I didn't bring here.

As you are well aware of, I am away on-board and do not have access to western union, most post offices have western union section,will it be OK with you if I add the $1,650aud the amount I am transferring? and as soon as the money goes through you can help me make the western union transfer of the freighting fees through western union money transfer? You are not obliged to help me, but i will indeed appreciate your help as I am a little incapacitated here.
Regards,
Bahjat

Don't know what the next bit will be but after seeing your previous report I wont bother to find out.
