Same as previously advised scam on this website,

I was contacted on June 2-3, 2013. Turns out they got a little greedy though because I was contacted by someone using three different emails and names, all on the same phone number. Emails were: and in addition to the John Warwick email as above.

I almost fell for it. I did supply banking details but my bank assures me they can\'t do anything with that. Turns out if a car buyer isn\'t haggling the price or even referencing it, then it is too good to be true. I had been so excited to sell the car I hadn\'t stopped to question the ridiculous grammar and turn of phrase. Also, there isn\'t a mine site in the country that doesn\'t have phones or internet available to staff, so don\'t fall for that one.

The following is the email sent to me with regards to a car we were selling on the Carsales site. I thought it sounded a little too good to be true, and some of his info didn't stack up, so I did some investigating to check out his claims. Below is the initial email he sent to me..............
Thanks for the reply and so sorry that i couldn't call you due to the nature of my work,I work with AWE New Zealand Pty Ltd and we are presently on rig at the moment,on the west aquarius submersible to be precise.I would have loved to call you directly but due to the nature of my work we do not have access to phone at the moment,its 20days off and 10days on,which is why I contacted you with internet messaging facility and where is it located at the moment.
I am buying this for my first son who just graduated ontop of his class at Charles Darwin University in NT ,He studied Building Design & Architecture. I want it to be the perfect graduation gift and a surprise package for him ,Does it have any history I should be aware of? and why are you selling if you don't mind my asking.I am already in talks with freighters that will handle the pickup and delivery to my son.I will really appreciate if you can email more info.
As regards the payment, I can pay you through direct bank deposit,using paypal instant bank wire transfer service, I will need your bank details.If you are not comfortable with that, you can set up a paypal account proper and I will make the payment through paypal, this way, all I will need is your paypal email address.
Kind Regards, Patrick.

Since you’re here …
we have a small favour to ask. More people are visting Scamdex and Scamalot than ever but advertising revenues are falling fast and we have no 'product' to sell. And unlike many informational websites, we haven’t put up a paywall or membership barrier – we want to keep our site as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Scamdex/Scamalot websites takes a lot of time, money and hard work to keep running. We do this because we hate to see our fellow humans getting scammed out of their hard-earned money by low-lives.
