Details of Scam Report
PayPal scam using bogus links designed to scam credit card details for paypal or get you to send monies to a fake courier company via western union after a bogus screen shot of monies from PayPal has been sent

Scam Email
Contacted me via email in regards to an ad I had on gumtree asking me how what the lowest price I would take for the item. I had a number of items listed on gumtree so I replied with a complete list. They then replied with they wanted all the items which was a bit weird however they worked long hours etc and was not able to come and inspect the items. They said they woulda via paypal and have a private courier come and collect the items. They also supplied a bogus PayPal link. After a search of the email on google I discovered this scam via PayPal using a bogus link and a snapshot showing funds had been transferred or asking to transfer monies to western union for payment to the courier company, AVOID

Thank you for the mail,i am okay with the condition Likewise your asking price is quite reasonable and affordable considering others I've seen lately,Am buying it for my SON who has just graduated from Charles Darwin University NT. I'll have it for the listed price,please kindly send me your BANK details or pay pal payment email to set up purchase,as i don't have access to my bank account online as am not with my credit card details here on our mine site but i have my ANZ bank account linked up with my PayPal account so I will be paying you through PayPal to your nominated bank account.i would have love to call in person but we have strict no phone policy due to bad weather condition and i won't be able to come for the inspection due to the nature of my work 4weeks on 1week off,i will arrange for pick up and delivery by my pickup agent after the cleared payment to your account. Many Thanks
