Someone sees your comment on the Tauranga Rental Properties & Flatmates page and msgs you via FB saying their friend is keen to rent the room you have available and yet the person msging you has no FB profile picture and only one friend (alarm bells). You msg "Katherine Ann Weir" back and ask for this friends full name. You email "Rebecca Mayo" at rebmay12345@gmail.com telling her about the room you have available (alarm bells again) and this is the reply:
Hi,

ALARM BELLS RINGING... The "New Zealand Oil and Gas (NZOG) and we are presently offshore in New Zealand Taranaki Basin on kapo project " thing was cut and pasted from previous email so I checked into the NZOG and was lead straight to this page - thank goodness!
These scamming assholes make me so mad-----its the old story "if it sounds too good to be true, it probably isn't" ----my email reply was: Hi Rebecca or whoever you are?

This is a scam and I will passing on your email address to the NZ Police. You have also been emailing a NZ Government address and I will also be passing on your information to our investigators to follow up.
(hope this puts the shits up them) but I doubt it.

I'm posting this here in case anybody else receives an email from this address: georgeeddiegreen@gmail.com The name "Valerie Elizabeth" whose profile picture was yellow tulips and had no friends on facebook messaged me saying this:
"A friend is willing to rent the place you have for rent and his not on Facebook,kindly email him at georgeeddiegreen@gmail.com or better still send your email address for him to contact you."
They were responding to an advertisement I had placed on a CLOSED facebook group advertising my room for subletting, I purposely only advertise on closed facebook groups to attempt to avoid these people but alas here we are.
I reported the email to google as phishing and blocked their email and reported their facebook account and messages there also. I'm sure they can easily create more fake accounts but hopefully this helps someone! If anything it made me laugh as I would never fall for an email like that especially when he miraculously decided to rent my room within 5 minutes of me sending details and pictures!!
