You msg "Katherine Ann Weir" back and ask for this friends full name. You email "Rebecca Mayo" at rebmay12345@gmail.com telling her about the room you have available (alarm bells again) and this is the reply:

(you are still a bit suspect but email her back again with a rental agreement and pictures of property requesting more of her details and that she sign the form before you will provide your bank details for rent/bond)
This is the next email:

ALARM BELLS RINGING... The "New Zealand Oil and Gas (NZOG) and we are presently offshore in New Zealand Taranaki Basin on kapo project " thing was cut and pasted from previous email so I checked into the NZOG and was lead straight to this page - thank goodness!
These scamming assholes make me so mad-----its the old story "if it sounds too good to be true, it probably isn't" ----my email reply was: Hi Rebecca or whoever you are?

This is a scam and I will passing on your email address to the NZ Police. You have also been emailing a NZ Government address and I will also be passing on your information to our investigators to follow up.
(hope this puts the shits up them) but I doubt it.

Thanks a lot for the email. I am away at sea at the moment,i work with New Zealand Oil and Gas (NZOG) and we are presently offshore in New Zealand Taranaki Basin on kapo project. We do not have access to phone at the moment,its 5days off and 25days on,which is why I contacted you with internet messaging facility. Where is it located at the moment? I am buying it for my for my holiday and i want it delivered before my arrival.I won't be able to come for the inspection due to the nature of my work and i would have called but our calling is restricted.Regarding the payment,pls get back to me with your final asking price and 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 after the whole fund has been cleared into your acct.
Regards Tuesday, 05 June 2018, 07:39PM +10:00 from Janet Nicolas janicholas1013@gmail.com:
Thanks for the payment details and am happy to proceed with the payment, however i got a confirmation mail from the shipping agent now that i will need to pay for the freighting fees before they can schedule pre-shipping/ pickup date,they charged $950 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. I need a credit card to personally take care of that but I didn't bring it along as I am currently on duty and had thought there would be no need for bringing it along. As you are well aware of, due to the nature of my work am away and do not have access to western union, will it be ok with you if I add the $950 to the amount I am transferring? and you can help me make the western union transfer of the freighting fees through western union transfer? You are not obliged to help me, but i will indeed appreciate your help as I am a little incapacitated here.
Thanks
Tuesday, 05 June 2018, 08:26PM +10:00 from Janet Nicolas janicholas1013@gmail.com:
I have just made the payments into your account now and i expect PayPal to have emailed by now if not you can check your jelovea2003@hotmail.com Spam or Junk folder for the Payment Confirmation email, i sent $1,580 in all, i added $1,000 meant for pick up and delivery and the western union fee also, so you will need to send $950 to the pick up agent Headquarters via western union transfer, PayPal said they have emailed you to this effect, i added extra $50 to cover the western union charges which shouldn't be more than $50, so $1,580 will be credit to your account. Here is the pick up agent info needed to get the money sent through Western union transfer: PS: If you didn't receive the payment receipt in your email? kindly check your email Spam/Junk folder because that was where i found the copy of my receipt. Name: LI LIU Address:Dongfeng Nanlunanshili jujia 16 City:Beijing State:Beijing Postal Code:100016 Country:China I will need the details of the transfer once you have sent funds and you can also make the transfer online via westernunion.com.au.
Thanks The fund is currently on hold with PayPal on their database that's why it's not showing up in your account, you are to send the mtcn of the transfer details across to PayPal for verification and as soon as its verify and confirmed, the funds will be released into your account immediately because right now the money has already been deducted from my account and can't be reversed back since the transaction has been authorized.
Thanks

I'm posting this here in case anybody else receives an email from this address: georgeeddiegreen@gmail.com The name "Valerie Elizabeth" whose profile picture was yellow tulips and had no friends on facebook messaged me saying this:
"A friend is willing to rent the place you have for rent and his not on Facebook,kindly email him at georgeeddiegreen@gmail.com or better still send your email address for him to contact you."
They were responding to an advertisement I had placed on a CLOSED facebook group advertising my room for subletting, I purposely only advertise on closed facebook groups to attempt to avoid these people but alas here we are.
I reported the email to google as phishing and blocked their email and reported their facebook account and messages there also. I'm sure they can easily create more fake accounts but hopefully this helps someone! If anything it made me laugh as I would never fall for an email like that especially when he miraculously decided to rent my room within 5 minutes of me sending details and pictures!!
