Greg Crisell Car Purchase Scam
 Scammer
  Information
Name:
   Greg Crisell
Email Address:
   gregcrisell1970@gmail.com
E-mail to purchase one of my car\'s on autotrader. Received initial text on telephone. When I requested for him to identify what car he wanted to buy (I have two on Autotrader) told me to send him an e-mail. Once I did I got the following response:

\"Thanks a lot for the email. Am buying it for my son who just graduated
ontop of his class in National University in California, he studied
Business Law and Professional Ethics Minor and am so proud of him . I
want it as a surprise package to appreciate him towards his
achievement and to be delivered before my arrival Wyoming as my family
lives in Wyoming .

I work with SPDR S&P Oil & Gas Exploration & Production ETF and we are
presently offshore in US Taranaki Basin on kapo project. We do not
have access to phone at the moment,its 15days off and 15days on,which
is why I contacted you with internet messaging facility. Where is it
located at the moment?Does it have any history I should be aware of?
and why are you selling if you don\'t mind my asking.I am already in
talks with the courier that will handle the pick-up and delivery it in
Wyoming.

As regards the payment, I can pay you through direct bank
deposit,using ppal instant bank wire transfer service, I will need
your bank details.If you are not comfortable with that, you can set up
a paypal account proper at www.paypal.com and I will make the payment
through paypal, this way, all I will need is your paypal email
address.

Cheers!!\"

Notice that he didn\'t answer my question about which car he wanted to buy AND that the text of this e-mail was exact to the ones listed here. I obviously didn\'t proceed any further with this individual.
