Scam Email
I'm very happy to read back from you. I'm currently at my son's place here in Exmouth-WA for his wedding ceremony coming soon. also I will not be able to meet you for inspection and collection because I will be here spending my leave with the new family till February 2020, but I have a personal representative agent that will meet you for collection after payment has been made. I cannot take calls or make one due to my ear barotrauma from my last air flight, I barely hear clear and my email is the best channel for me to communicate. I want the agent to deliver it to my new house in Exmouth-WA before my arrival. I am ready to make the payment so get back to me with the details below : Account number. BSB. Name. Final price: Are you the Owner? Pick up Location? That is all I need in order to make the payment through a secure online bank transfer from my bank to yours. I will transfer the money to your account and my personal representative courier agent will meet you for the collection and deliver it to my new house in Exmouth-WA after you confirmed the payment. Please consider my payment method because I cannot travel around with cash, risky and I cannot visit you due to the distance. Best Regards.

I posted something on Gum Tree and received a response within minutes. When I replied with an email address I got a quick response which I have also posted. there were a lot of reasons listed why he couldn't come to look at what we were selling or why he couldn't come and get it from me, and he was asking for my details to make payment. Red flags immediately went up as soon as I read the message. I have since responded and blocked his contact.

they are at it again - same spiel as described - but they like to have the courier costs paid by you despite pick up only - pretty stupid request playing on your sympathy that he transferred amounts via Westpac which is held there and will only be released if you pay those funds first. Waste of time to deal with those type of idiots - they should get a real job instead

Scam Email
As per bank email which is similar to yours after I get the money transfer I was told that you will have to upfront the fee that I add to your money send and send them Bank transfer receipt details before they can release the funds into your account and the total amount of $1,800.00 including the pick up fee has been deducted from my account and i don't have access to it anymore so what you just have to do now is just go to your internet banking to transfer the $800.00 send from your own personal money to the agent address given to you earlier and send the Bank transfer receipt details to Bank customer care that send you the payment notification email and they will release the total amount of $1,800.00 AUD from hold into your account which have been deducted from my account already instantly ok i will look forward to read from you as soon as you are through with it ok thanks for understanding

Same deal have a car for sale on Gumtree as well as other places, got an email from Amir via Gumtree asking for my email address within an hour of posting the ad (Buyer-c8wkrt1vh4912@users.gumtree.com.au). After I reply with my email address this is followed immediately by an email from the good Geoff Facer and the spiel listed below:
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 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, please get back to me with your final asking price and your paypal email address so i can process the payment,due to paypal charges you can alternatively send your BSB and account number if you don't have paypal account, you can set up at www.paypal.com I have also contacted my courier who will come for pick up after the whole fund has been cleared into your account.
Kindly get back to me with the following questions below: Account number Account name BSB number.

He lost interest when I told him I wasn't interested in being paid via Paypal for such a large amount (over $10k)
