I work with AWE New Zealand Pty Ltd and we are presently offshore in New Zealand Taranaki Basin on kapo project. We do not have access to phone at the moment,its 15days off and 15days on,which is why I contacted you with internet messaging facility. Where is it located at the moment?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 the courier that will handle the pick-up and delivery it in NT.

I have had the same as above . I won't bore you with the details but this is part of his last message : I will proceed with the payment as promised, so can you assure me i will not be disappointed? And also I need to inform you about this as i just received an email from my pick agent headquarters Russia ...Am most sure i did not include that in my previous email,And they said they won't come for the pick up unless i pay the agent commission fee first in order to be able to schedule a pick up time.I am Operating officer as my position on here.I am so busy and cannot pay the agent fees from here as they Requested that i need to pay them with Money Gram...
So what i will do here is that i will send the payment in the total amount of $5,400.00 AUD. So once you receive the funds,you will deduct the promised amount for the good which is $4,400.00 AUD and the remaining $950.00 AUD will be send down to my agent By Money-gram.the extra $50 is main for the Money Gram charges .. Money Gram shop can be locate at the 7-ELEVEN Store or check with www.moneygram.com.au by search location , and You can also get back to me with your full Address to help you locate the nearest Money Gram store close to you..
Goes by the name of Reza Farhady (I'm assuming he stole this guys drivers licence as he sent it to me when I requested details for the transfer papers). I also received a suspiciously similar email from 'Aussie Cat' (dedicatedaussiecat1325@gmail.com). Goes by the name 'Lou'? Anyway I've ended contact with both.

I understand mate but please note that i have tried all my possible best to make it live into your bank account in order for you to complete the Payment on your end but later got an email from PayPal that it there protocol with term and condition which has to be taking before any activities could take place so please don't think am trying to pull any game or wanted to rip you as here non to let you fall victims of wrong transaction .. But all am trying here is to let you understand how PayPal work by transferring funds from account to another and secured.. I will implore you to find all means to borrow money around and make this last Payment , immediately this is done just email PayPal with the details needed to verify since it would take them some minute to do that and accredit you then you payback whoever you might borrow money from.. This is all better than you leave no choice and lose such a money while am buying away.. Thank

I put a car add on Gumtree and on the same day I got the below text "My husband like to know if your car still for sale? if yes email him on razafarhady001@gmail.com with final price thanks" The message came from "GMX" instead of an actual phone number. I didn't go any further as it seemed too scam like.

A pretty obvious scam. He sent me an sms at 5.30 am my time on a Sunday morning which is too early for local person to be looking at car adverts. Then he didn\'t bargain or ask about condition of the vehicle etc. Nobody does that. I am a professional artist and I get many scam attempts. Usually you can smell them a mile away.

Same as all the other scams reported....working for NZ Oil and Gas...15 days on / 15 days off. Doesn't have phone contact but wants to buy my bike. Was happy with the price and would put the funds into my PayPal account. His agent would collect the goods so they could be couriered to NT. All this happened within a couple of hours of placing the advertisement. As they say...if it sounds too good to be true, it usually is. I have had email contact with this person but the more emails we exchanged, the more suspicious I became so I checked by doing a Google search on the mobile number and found this site. I am now curious as to how the scam works. Do they hack into your email account? I can't imagine that they actually ever manage to get hold of any items because there cars or bike require transfer of rego and ownership prior to completion of the deal.

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 the courier that will handle the pick-up and delivery it in NT. I work with AWE New Zealand Pty Ltd and we are presently offshore in New Zealand Taranaki Basin on kapo project. We do not have access to phone at the moment,its 15days off and 15days on,which is why I contacted you with internet messaging facility.
As regards the payment, I can pay you through direct bank deposit,using ppal instant bank wire transfer service as i have my N.A.B account attached to my ppal account, I will need your bank details.If you are not comfortable with that, you can set up apaypal account proper at www.paypal.com.au and I will make the payment through paypal, this way, all I will need is your paypal email address. Cheers!!
Seemed dodgy so I googled the kapo project and it's a scam- it seemed as though they were giving me way too much info!

Offered to buy our camper trailer but then said:
"Thanks a lot for the email, i really appreciate your response , I am away at sea at the moment, I work with AWE New Zealand Pty Ltd and we are presently offshore in New Zealand Taranaki Basin on kapo project.We do not have access to phone calls at the moment,its 15days off and 15days on,which is why I contacted you with internet messaging facility. I am buying this for my for my father and i want it to be delivered to him in NT before his coming birthday. However,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 the courier that will handle the pick-up and delivery to my family . As regards the payment, I can pay you through direct bank deposit,using ppal instant bank wire transfer service, I will need your bank details.If you are not comfortable with that, you can set up apaypal account proper at www.paypal.com.au and I will make the payment through paypal, this way, all I will need is your paypal email address. Cheers!!"
After we replied with our paypal address, we got...
"Thanks for the detailed explanation ,am satisfied with your firm asking price and I really appreciate your honesty as that is what i really need most as wont be able to come for inspection as am at work ,just want to buy the it as a surprise package for my father to show appreciation.I would have love to ask for inspection but am making it a %100 surprise package for him and i dont want him to know about it until it delivered. However i just got a mail from the shipping company now that i will need to pay for the freighting fees before they can schedule pre-shipping/ pickup date,they charged $1,350aud for the pick up and delivery, but the problem is they only accept western union money transfer as form of payment which is sent to their HQ in the UK.
As you are well aware of, I am away at sea and do not have access to western union, most post offices have western union section,will it be ok with you if I add the $1,350aud to the amount I am transferring? and as soon as the money goes through you can help me make the western union transfer of the freighting fees through western union money transfer? You are not obliged to help me, but i will indeed appreciate your help as I am a little incapacitated here. Cheers."
We started to get suspicious so checked out the kapo Project and ended up here! Scam avoided. Thank you!

after a few more emails back and forth the scammer wanted me to transfer money via western union for the pick up/ delivery charges. also referred to me by another name which alerted me to more possibility of a scam.

Thanks for the detailed explanation ,am satisfied with your firm asking price and I really appreciate your honesty as that is what i really need most as wont be able to come for inspection as am at work ,just want to buy the it as a surprise package for my son to show my appreciation in my absentia and i really believe he will really enjoy it. I would have love to ask for inspection but am making it a %100 surprise package for him and i dont want him to know about it until it delivered. Happy to inform you that i have now upgraded my paypal account to business merchant account so i can transfer the fund into your nominated account from my paypal account . Please advise me of the details so i can make the transfer ASAP and after have sorted out with the payment i have a private courier that will come for the pick up and make a personal delivery for my son after the payment clears into your account .
Thanks for the details ,Please I just got a mail from the shipping company now that i will need to pay for the freighting fees before they can schedule pre-shipping/ pickup date,they charged $950aud for the pick up and delivery, but the problem is they only accept western union money transfer as form of payment which is sent to their HQ in the UK.
As you are well aware of, I am away at sea and do not have access to western union, most post offices have western union section,will it be ok with you if I add the $950aud to the amount I am transferring? and as soon as the money goes through you can help me make the western union transfer of the freighting fees through western union money transfer? You are not obliged to help me, but i will indeed appreciate your help as I am a little incapacitated here. Cheers.
Thanks for your understanding and I have just made the payments now and i expected paypal to have emailed by now,please check your spam/junk folder as I sometimes get paypal notification there,I sent $3,850aud in all, paypal said they would be holding the funds and it won't be credited into your account because of the excess payments of $1,050aud i added meant for pick up and delivery,they said they have emailed you to this effect, you will need to send the $950aud to the freighting company headquarters via western union money transfer,so that paypal can credit the $3,850aud into your account as soon as you have emailed the western union details to them, i added extra $100aud to cover the western union charges which shouldnt be more that $60-80aud but just to be sure i added $100aud, Here is the pick up agent info needed to get the money sent through western union money transfer:
Natalia Kareen, International Logistic Centre, 71 Holloway Road, Nottingham shire, NG24 4SP, United Kingdom.
Cheers!
