Selling a table on gumtree and received this message by email from Janet Nicolas

Thanks a lot for the email. I work with Flagship Marine and we are presently offshore in New Zealand. 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 are you 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 phone usage and calling are very restricted. I have also contacted a courier agent who will meet you for pick-up and delivery after payment has been cleared. Regarding the payment, please get back to me with your final asking price, I can transfer money through secure online bank transfer, you can alternatively send your BSB and account number, payment can also go through PayPal, if you don't have, you can set up via

Kindly get back to me with the following questions below:
Account number
Account name
BSB number.

1) Are you the Owner?
2) Pick up Location?
3) What is The final Price?


Then I got this email re delivery

Thanks for the payment details and am happy to proceed with the payment, however i got a confirmation mail from the shipping agent now that i will need to pay for the freighting fees before they can schedule pre-shipping/ pickup date,they charged $250 for the pick up and delivery, but the problem is they only accept Bitcoin and ITunes card as form of payment which the card pin is to be sent to their HQ.

As you are well aware of, due to the nature of my work am away and do not have access to purchase an ITunes card here, will it be okay with you if I add the $250 to the amount I am transferring? and you can help purchase the iTunes card? You are not obliged to help me, but i will indeed appreciate your help as I am a little incapacitated here.

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.
