    scammer - seems that there is a pattern in the emails etc. Courier company doesnt exist and the wording of the email rang bells

    Hello mate, it's Holland, thank you for your response, I'm fine with it on the advert, exactly what I am looking for, is there anything I should be aware of?I work with Falcon Oil & Gas Ltd. Beetaloo Basin, Northern Territory, Australia and the reception is terrible. We do not have access to phones at the moment, which is why I contacted you with an internet messaging facility. I am already in talks with the courier that will handle the pick-up and delivery.
    As regards the payment, I can pay you through direct bank deposit (EFT), using PayPal instant bank wire transfer service, linked up with my ANZ bank account, I will need your bank details and I will make the payment through PayPal facility to your bank account, all I will need is your acct number, BSB number, acct name and your final asking price.
    With the issue of my details, transferring the name of ownership will be done by the freight agent so you don’t have to worry about that.Awaiting your reply.

    Exactly same e-mail, luckily something didn’t feel right. Couldn’t find transport company, let alone his FB. Then put the name into safari & what do you know, his name came on the website.
