Supposedly wanted to buy an outboard advertised online, sent fake emails pretending to be a bank referring to a payment for item as well as courier and emails asking me to pay money to a courier before I receive payment in the bank.
Follow Ups/Extra Information. Most recent is listed first.
This person responded to a Gumtree listing for our caravan and wanted to buy it based only on the photos. Also he/she has a courier lined up ready to collect the caravan and deliver it to Riverton. Can't use a phone as he/she has hearing difficulties. Won't be back home until Xmas.

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.
