Details of Scam Report
It would appear that Helvis Datford has changed his/her name now to Kim Lucas. I received a txt this morning in regard to my car I have advertised on Gumtree. I got a txt almost straight away saying 'Is your ad still availabke for sale, easier to contact me on kimlucas2013@yahoo.com what's the condition and firm price'. I emailed more information back to Kim and received this email back 'Thanks for mailing back,am ok with the price and the condition,am buying it for my vacation,because i'll be coming soon from our rig as am a petroleum engineer on a rig offshore,i won't be able to come for the inspection due to the nature of my work,i would have love to call in person but our satellite server has been down which restrict our calls.i will be paying you through PayPal,pls get back to me with your PayPal details so i can proceed with the payment and contact the courier agent who will come to pick it up and deliver it in my place.I would appreciate if you email me with more pictures (if available) too since i won't be be able to see this in person,what's the PayPal email to send funds to in order for me to pay you ASAP,And if you don't have a paypal account, it is very easy to set up, go to www.paypal.com.au and get it set up or you send me your BSB and account number so i can pay you from my paypal merchant account'. I asked for more information and they sent through their address: 24 Kurrajong Crescent, Nightcliff Northern Territory and their Drivers License-051532752. Lucky I googled the address and found this website before communicating any further!
