Country of Scam:
United Kingdom (GB)
This lady claimed she wanted to buy my boat for £40,00.
It was advertised on BoatsandOutboards.co.uk
She did not need to see it just my bank details to transfer advanced payment.
Next she sent me her passport photo and asked for my address and phone number.
I searched her name in google and came to this site and ceased communication with her.

I paste her emails below to help others.

Kindly get back to me with your last asking price. I will like to buy as soon as possible,I would have preferred to come and see the Boat but I cannot make trip abroad now because of work(I am a drilling engineer off the Baltic coast) but I am certain we can make our arrangement through email and after I send my full advance payment to you for the Boat, I can send a carrier who will collect the Boat from your location and deliver it to me.

I proposed to the carrier to bring cash for me and pay you on the spot but the carrier has a policy of not meddling in purchase and payment for goods, their only service is to pick up the purchased package after it has been paid for, So we have to fix the payment situation ourselves.

I can make payment for the Boat to your bank account via EU cross-border bank transfer, because it allows same day payment to countries within Europe union, to send this international transfer, I will need the name of the owner of the account, Account number, IBAN , swift code. And Once you have received my payment, we will discuss with the carrier on the best time to come and receive the Boat at your location. He will also come with all necessary identification and document to complete the unsubscribe of the Boat and also with power of attorney.

If you agree to my terms, please provide the information you send payment.

It appears this scam has taken a slightly different twist from purchasing a boat. Received a text on behalf of a niece requesting information on a rental vacancy. Then received an email from from Lyu Yumeng indicating they were a chef currently working in Norway and would soon be moving and required a place to stay. Work schedule prevented telephone contact, so all communication would have to be via email. Indicated they would be willing to pre pay 6 months rent and the rent would be paid by the employer and requested full address details so that arrangements could begin to be made to confirm their cost to move personal properties via carrier.

She is still at it sent me the identical letter wanting to buy my boat without seeing it. Then suddenly I need to pay £850 by money gram copy of the email instructions below. I also was sent a copy of her passport
Peter, You will have to go to the nearest Money gram outlet or Post office close to your location with the cash covering the transport company fee of (£850.00) + Money gram transfer charges of (£80), request for for money gram transfer form at the money gram outlet fill in the sender's part on your name and address while you will have to fill the receiver's part on the transport company details which is as follows:
Name: Patrick Ward Address: Via Bologna 25 City: ROME Country: Italy Postal code: 00125
Tender the cash and the receipt the cashier and after a successful transfer you will be issue a receipt of transfer which you will have to follow to the Bank( Nordea Bank) by replying to the confirmation mail. You will have to scan the transfer money gram receipt and forward it to Nordea Bank and wait for few minutes while your total fund will be credited to your account, as it will only take few minutes for verification to take place.
Regards.
Lyu.

Asked to send details of my boat for sale to Lyu from an Italian number by text. Very keen to buy and produced lots of good looking forged documents and eventually asked to make a payment "to enable funds to be released".
