Scammer Information Details of Scam Report
Received an sms reply to my gumtree boat for sale advertisement wanting to know the items condition and final price.
I replied, good condition, price is firm. Then got this email:
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.
I got an identical one about the same time from Peter at email@example.com

Exactly the same email was sent claiming she worked on the mines, I then paid her 2100 for all these fees she claimed had to be paid before the money was cleared to my account, threatening me with legal action if I did not pay, the money was picked up in china from an address in Beijing. Virtually untraceable and not any hope of getting my money back from this person
