Details of Scam Report
This person contacted me through gumtree where i posted my car sell information that he would like to purchase the vehicle to his son as graduation but since he is currently not in Australia and work in New Zealand Oil and Gas (NZOG) andpresently offshore in New Zealand Taranaki Basin. He asked for upfront payment to arrange his agent to make further arrangement. I googled his name and found similar info has been sent to other buyers.
