Camper advertised on Gum Tree, received a text message asking if item was still for sale. I clicked on to email link & received this response: Hi,
Thanks for mailing back,I'm ok with the price and the condition,I work as a Hydrographic Surveyor,I am currently on the sea,we do not have access to phone at the moment,it's 15days off and 15days on and that's why I contacted you with internet messaging facility. Please ignore any other request from other buyers regarding this sale as I am highly interested.I don't mind adding an extra $500 for a quick sale for you to be sure I am interested in the immediate purchase.
Regarding the payment,I will be paying you through PayPal,please get back to me with your paypal details so i can process the payment,you can alternatively send your bsb and acct number if you have no PayPal acct.I have also contacted my courier who will come for pick up and deliver it to my place in Darwin after the whole fund has been cleared into your acct.I will like you to re-confirm the price by stating it in your return e-mail for verification.
Await your reply.

Scam Email
My car was advertised at carsales.com.au and I received a text message from Solomona. I am just wondering how scammers are able to use our telephone system in a way that we cannot reply to their messages. Just like an Optus Message Alert. This must be a big network of hackers and scammers. Please be aware.

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.

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.
