Hello there,

A friend of mine had a reply to a gumtree ad she recently placed and it all looks very fishy, almost certainly a scam. I'd love to take this guy for a ride and see what can be done... Email comms as follows.. (I've added stars around my friends name/email and replaced all names/addresses with x. should be easy enough to follow though)

Does this look familiar then?


Thanks

I should probably tell you more about the job...... This job is flexible so you can do it wherever you are provided that there is a post office in the area. In addition to that, I don't mind you doing all of the tasks during your spare time outside of work or school.. I wish I could meet up with you to talk about this job in person but i am currently away on for a Orphanages pedestrian construction. I am in Africa so there will be no interview.I am senior civil engr I will prepay you in advance to do my shopping and have my mails/packages forwarded to your address.If you will be unable to stay at home to get the mails, I can have them shipped to a post office near you and then you can pick them up at your convenience. All errands will be in your city/town so It is not a must that you have a car for the job, you can go places by bus or taxi. When you get my mails/packages; you are required to mail them to where I want them mailed to. You won't have to put money out of your pocket, all you have to do is have packages shipped to your house and do my shopping. You are allowed to open the packages to reveal the content. The content of the packages will be business and personal mails. All expenses and taxes will be covered by me.. You will work between 15 and 20hrs a month. How much will you charge per month? I will pay 500GBP per month. That is not a bad offer is it? I need your service because I am constantly out of
town... I am senior civil engr. I will return to UK in September so this process will be on going till then.... If you don't mind, I will meet up with you when I return and then we can talk about the possibility of making this long term. Well, let me know if you are able to handle the position. Thanks for your time.I will have the mails sent to the post office however, the money to do my errands must be mailed directly to you. I will email you the list and pictures of what to shop for when I am ready. No heavy packages is involved! You can do the shopping at stores. You will be shopping for household items, Electronics and
clothings. I will provide you my UPS account number for Shipping. All you have to do is provide my account number to UPS and shipping charges will be applied into the account. I will provide clear set of instructions for each task I need done as well the funds to cover them. If I were to mail you money to do my errands plus upfront payment for your service, how should your name appear on the money? Where should I mail it to?Your phone number.

As DarthHerring said, it is definitely a scam. The check will be fraudulent, the UPS account probably stolen, etc.

A few key points:

What the heck is that? Yet, he claims to be from the UK? The English is horrible. Yes, he's in Africa. The language is typical of an African scammer.

Also notice that some of the content is in there twice? That's a bad copy/paste job.

Please do bait this scammer if you're interested. Look in the Scambaiting help forum for tons of information on getting started.
