Dave Dass
Email Address:
I received a text message from the number above in ref to my ad on gumtree selling a sit on lawnmower, from a Dave Dass - I was told he was out of the country but could Is end a paypal invoice and he would pay and the mower would be collected asap (suspicious immediately as English was not great)he was chatty and friendly so beware. I sent an invoice from my Paypal account - within a few hours I received a spam mail from a supposed PayPal account saying that payment had been made but with an extra £300, at the same time I r4ceived an email from
as follows:

I have made the payment but i have a problem here, i just got an email from my transport company that they won't come for the pick up unless i pay the transport fee first, and there is no way i could do that because am out of the country at the moment and i can't access western union here. I have decided to add the amount which is £300 while i paid through paypal which has not been deducted from my account but pending in your account. So please i will like you to help me transfer/wire the said £300 to the company via western union so they can be able to come for the pick up and also paypal said they won't release the funds until they get the western union information from you to confirm that the £300 has been sent due to the fact that i emailed them about the exess payment i made. The money will be sent to company's agents head office address in MALAYSIA but they will be coming from Wales. Here is the details which the money will be sent to:

Name: Noralezah Binti Razak
Address: B-5-7 Pucak Anthenium avenue
State:Kuala Lumpur
Zipe code: 68000
Country: Malaysia

I was also told by paypal that a confirmation email has been sent to pls check all your mail folders i..e junk/spam to confirm my payment as it sometimes jumps in there.

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.
