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 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.

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 or RIA 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 or RIA, will it be ok with you if I add the $950 to the amount I am transferring? and you can help me make the transfer of the freighting fees through western union or Ria transfer? You are not obliged to help me, but i will indeed appreciate your help as I am a little incapacitated here.

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.
