Same as other reports. Would only correspond via email, which was the first red flag, spelling and grammar was all over the shop (not necessarily a red flag but something that I’m cautious of), and was silly enough to rattle off some story about shipping the phone to a Cousin as he is working off shore as an Oceanographer. I hope no one else gets bothered by this guy!

I'm well pleased with all you've stated and regards to the price it sounds okay as well,I am happy to proceed with the purchase...i want it sent to my cousin as a surprise birthday gift through Australian Post as I won't be able to come for check up due to the nature of my work,I'm an oceanographer presently working off shore at the moment. I have tried calling but the network so bad for weeks now so I will be glad if you can get back to me with some more pictures if available.Regarding the payment i will be paying you through PayPal as i have linked it up with my bank account so you can get back to me with your PayPal email so i can secure the sales,Alternatively you can get back to me with your account name,bsb number and account number if you don't have a PayPal account so my merchant PayPal account can transfer to any of both account without delay.

hanks for getting back, I am interested and am okay with the price $380. Actually i am buying it for my cousins as a surprise graduation gifts and i will be responsible for the shipping charges via AUSPOST EMS to her address so that would not be a problem,which means i will pay $100 for the delivery charges because am posting it to USA. I would have love to call in person but we have call restriction due to bad weather condition our satellite server has been down. I will be paying you through PayPal or transferring the money from my PayPal wire bank transfer to your bank account. Please get back to me with your PayPal details or you can alternatively send your bsb account name and number if you have no PayPal account, so i can proceed with the payment into account and i will be responsible for the shipping charges via AUSPOST EMS to her address in USA .
Await your reply. Cheers
Asked to have a phone call Actually, I just got a job with Falcon Oil & Gas Ltd. Beetaloo Basin, Northern Territory. We do not have access to phone at the moment, which is why I contacted you with internet messaging facility.

Replied to Gumtree ad soon after it was posted asking to respond via email. Similar to other reports, had a long story about sending iPhone overseas as a gift. Seemed dodgy, so searched the name and arrived here. Received an identical text message from "elena" as the spoofed phone number, asking to reply to the email: emilyfarrell954@gmail.com about an hour later

Contacted me with a long complex story to send phone to USA as a gift to a cousin. Sent me a driving license photo without any prompting. I suspect this is a stolen identity - there is a real Simone Ragni on Facebook and it doesn't look like a scammer's page. Attempted to pay me using "Paypal" when I specifically told him not to. Then told me to check my spam folder. The email is listed as coming from Service@Paypal.com.au but is actually from payment_onlineverify@consultant.com.
