  Information
Name:
   Helvis Datford
Email Address:
   helvisdatford@gmail.com
Initially Helvis also sent a text from an address seandgwilso, no return number, or ability to reply to this address. Same details as before with reference to working offshore as a petroleum engineer and will buy for price for price quoted. This didn\'t seem right, not even to barter on the price. Watch this guy he is persistent and has an answer for everything, to buy something unseen, raises alarm bells for me. Thank you to all the other people who have reported this scammer otherwise I could have gone through with it and also lost money.
