Email Address:
anaofxico@gmail.com
Country of Scam:
Australia (AU)
Posted ad on Gumtree to sell a ring, and they contacted with a text that asked me to send an email as the 'nature of their work' meant they couldn't make calls. Strange interactions from there, some of which below. Money never received in PayPal account, they must hope that someone will be fooled by emails from 'PayPal' saying they have received money that they haven't received!

Some of their emails:
Thanks for your reply and am glad to know that it is still available for sale.However i have few questions on the item you are selling.

1,I would like to know the reason why you are selling it?
2,Do you have the original box for it?
3,what is the present condition of the item and is it ok to be a gift?
4,Do you mind if i pay you through paypal though i would be willing to add an extra dollars to cover

the shipping because am not local at the moment i am out of town on a rig offshore and i would like to purchase this item as a gift for someone very special to me at overseas (Beijing,China).If you do not have PayPal account, you can do so by going to www.PayPal.com to set up your account it is free,easy and guarantees transaction safety.Once you send me your paypal email account, I will send you the payment for your item as well as $90 to cover shipping via Auspost Airmail(Standard International Post).
I would be glad if my request is favorably considered,few more photos will be appreciated as well.
Thanks
Hello,
I have sent the payment from my account.....and i must say this transaction is OK.
Please note: I'm shipping the item to my receiver in China and here is his address below:

Name: OTTE RUDIGER AKI
Address: ChaoyangQu huang SanMudia 10
State: BEIJING
City: BEIJING
Country: CHINA
Zip code:100123
Phone Number : 15810576105

I want you to ship the item via Auspost Airmail(Standard International Post),the tracking number starts with "LK",this is because i want the receiver to avoid customs declaration and tax at destination,reason is because its a gift,the receiver is not expecting it or knows whats inside the package,also i want you to help me wrap it with a gift wrapper and then write,specify and declare it as "Gift" get back to me as soon as its sent......also i want you to go through the PayPal notification email so you'll know what next to do so that your account can be credited without delay.
Hope to hear from you soon.
Regards
N.B.
Make sure you send the certificate or receipt with it if you have one.

i just get notification email from paypal that the money was deducted and notification email was sent to you,i will advise that you check your inbox and you junk folder for the notification email from paypal so you can read it and know what you need to do before your account can be credited.

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.
