Scammer offered to purchase an item I have for sale at $800, explained they work for an oil rig in New Zealand and that they work 5 days off, 25 days on. I said to them to pay through PayID and 'she' said she doesn't have it. She said she's from Australia, so she'd know only the person getting the money needs to have PAYID. Said they'd send a courier with a big truck over (did not give my address out) to pick up the sale items lol

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.
