Said they wanted to purchase an dining setting from me on Gumtree and pay on PayPal as they are working offshore for New Zealand oil and gas. Once payment cleared they would arrange for a courier to pick up item to deliver to Darwin which is over 3500km away. Seemed like freight cost would way exceed the cost of the dining setting.

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.
