Scam Emails

What do scam emails look like?

EXAMPLE 1.

"Thanks for your swift reply. I am interested in immediate purchase of this item and due to the nature of my work and being oversea, phone calls making and visiting of website are not convenient for me but i squeezed out time to check this advert and sent you an email regarding it. If you are willing to sell this item as soon as possible, I will be using PayPal to make the payment which is safer for me. Therefore, in order to complete this transaction, you just need to get back to me with your Registered PayPal Name and Registered PayPal Email Address and total cost so that I can make the payment asap, if you don't have an account with Paypal, i can make the payment directly to your bank account from my paypal account provided you send me your bank details (bank account number, BSB and Bank account name). The pick up will be arranged with you by Paypal right after the payment has been finalized, the pick up will be done at your own desired location. I will be happy if you can remove the adverts off gumtree in order to show your commitment that you are willing to sell to me alone. Hope to read back from you."

EXAMPLE 2.

"Hello mate, It sounds good to know that it is still available for sale. I did go through your advert and I am satisfied with it. I am okay with the asking price and would love to go ahead with the deal right away because this meets my perfect search for time being now. I am contacting you via email, I am on duty and coming to your residence for inspection won't be possible, so you have to assure me that its in condition described. You may now consider me a favorite buyer and if possible withdraw the posting from the site immediately so that I can be rest assured that it is all mine . I don't mind adding an extra $300.00 for you just to take down the posting. Like I said earlier, I'm very busy with my job as I currently work as Marine official, so I will be paying you online via my PayPal account which is attached to my bank account because it is the only form of payment that I have access to right now and also because of its good security nature. If you are interested in selling it please provide me with the following information: 1)Your full name 2) Paypal email address, 3)Address for pick up 4)Your personal mobile # Kindly get back to me with your paypal email address or better still you can send me a paypal invoice so that i can complete the transaction. In case you don't have a paypal account, simply log on to www.paypal.com.au you can either attach it to your bank account or credit card and fund in paypal can be transferred to either accounts. What is your final asking price ? . I will be waiting to hear from you soon NB.. pls get the ad off the internet or mark it as sold as i am really keen about the purchase and i will be willing to pay any price offer from you. what is ur best price offer? Best regards"
