Overpayment Scam
Gumtree scammer 
David Green
Email Address:
As already reported, I also received a text message first from "David Green" asking me to not text but email him after posting my ads on Gumtree (furniture). Low and behold, the same email received as previously reported. Working '...with New Zealand Oil and Gas (NZOG)...' etc. I opened a brand new online bank account (with no money in it) and gave my BPAY details. He then emailed back stating courier will '...charge $950' and that they only accept Moneygram money transfers. He then offered to pay me that additional amount if I could help him out to then go to a SevenEleven to transfer the $950 on his behalf.
I've emailed him back and stated that I'm aware of his scam and that I will report him. Needless to say, he hasn't responded.

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.
