Richard Johnson
Email Address:

Country of Scam:
United States (US)
Placed an advertisement in GUMTREE to sell a DeWalt Radial Arm Saw and was contacted almost immediately by "Richard" Asked for banking details which I provided (BSB and Bank Account Number) only to receive ongoing emails advising that payment had been made.
Then received a bogus "PayPal" notification advising that I should transfer $950.00 to "Eva southerland" after which I would receive the $950 and my asking price.
Had a look on your SCAMWATCH web page and lo and behold the wording of "Richards" opening email was almost word identical to the letters posted on your webpage relating to the KAPO New Zealand offshore oil and gas postings.

Thanks to those who already posted on this forum. I put a boat for sale on gumtree, got a reply almost immediately, then exchanged email addresses and received the email below. Googled his email address which linked me to this page.
Yes Thanks a lot for the email. I work with Flagship Marine and we are presently offshore in New Zealand. 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 are you located at the moment?
I am buying it 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 phone usage and calling are very restricted. I have also contacted a courier agent who will meet you for pick-up and delivery after payment has been cleared. Regarding the payment, please get back to me with your final asking price, I can transfer money through secure online bank transfer, you can alternatively send your BSB and account number, payment can also go through PayPal, if you don't have, you can set up at www.paypal.com
Kindly get back to me with the following questions below: Account number Account name BSB number.
1) Are you the Owner? 2) Pick up Location? 3)what is The final Price send me your paypal email

Exactly the same as gumtree user in Tasmania has detailed. I’m selling a boat on gumtree, he made an offer within 7 minutes of it being advertised. He then asked for my email address and I received a word-for-word email as detailed in the report from Tasmania, that is, he is off shore of NZ blah blah blah and could I please send all my bank account details.

I also advertised a boat on Gumtree and got a reply straight away. I got the I am at sea and cant call crap and telling me he would organize a courier to collect it I just needed to provide my bank details or Paypal details. I questioned the fact he was in New Zealand and I am In Tasmania and got a reply straight away simply asking me to reply with my bank details. Checked here and bingo.

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.
