Placed an ad to sell our motor home on rvtrader.com and \"Mr. Bryans\" responded by sending a text message to the number we placed in the ad. Saying he works for SPDR S&P Oil and Gas Exploration offshore in the US Taranaki Basin on the kapo project, he would be unable to come and view the motor home in person but was satisfied with the pictures we had posted on line. His instructions for wire transfer of funds through Pay Pal was almost word-for-word the same as other narratives I have read on your website. If you get an inquiry from ANYONE that references New Zeland oil fields, Taranaki Basin or kapo project do not pursue. It is false! Thanks Scamdex for the public service you do.
