A potential buyer was interested in purchasing one of my items on Gumtree late Jan 2020.
Sent this message "Hi, I’m interested, ,.provid your EMAL ,,,for CONTACT
THANK,,,,,,, "

I gave my email and goes by the name of Jacob Lawson and said he worked for New Zealand Oil and Gas (NZOG) and had already organised his own courier to pick up the item. It smelt fishy. It was.

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.
