Helvis buys a caravan

Lad: Helvis Datford

Baiter: Stuart xxxx





Background:

My father advertised his caravan for sale in the local press recently and was somewhat suspicious of this reply he received.

Thankfully he contacted me before replying further.


Time for a little bit of fun I thought…

First email my father received:

Thanks for mailing back,am ok with the price and the condition.I'm at sea at the moment as petroleum engineer on a rig offshore,i won't be able to come for the inspection due to the nature of my work and i would have called but our calling is restricted.Regarding the payment,i will be paying you through PayPal,pls get back to me with your paypal details so i can process the payment,you can alternatively send your bsb and acct number if you have no paypal acct.I have also contacted my courier who will come for pick up after the whole fund has been cleared into your acct.

(I send him a teaser email to see what his response will be)

hello Helvis thankyou for you offer you did not say what van you wish to buy is it 24ft or 28ft? i think it best if you come have a look first before pay because if things go wrong i cannot do refund. If all is ok then you can do the payment because i do not like to rush things at my age.
Thankyou Stuart

Hi that is ok, but you need to let me know about witch van you want. Also when can your man come for inspection. Thankyou Stuart

i'm talking about the 24ft,i would have come to see it in person but due to the nature of my work.my courier will come for the inspection and also do the signing of the paper work.Get back to me with your payment details so that i can proceed with the payment asap as i will like it delivered to my place before my arrival.
thanks.




(I send our friend a fake bank account – he’s not going to check anyway)

Hi again. That is wonderful news to me! I must tell you that the 24ft is poorer condition than the 26ft hence the reason for the price being $15000 less. I have no paypal but my bank is bsb 066040 ac 16700212 name Stuart Xxxx. Please tell me the type of tow hitch your courier has so that i can fit the correct one to the van. Many happy thought Stuart.

Ok mate,i will let you know when the payment has been made and also contact my pick up agent to get prepared for the collection and arrangement.

Quote:
Wed, Oct 10, 2012
I was just about to pay when i had this problem with the pick up, my pick up agent says i will need to pay for the pick up before they can schedule a pick up time, they charged me $1500 for pick up and delivery and payments for pick up made through them is made to their corporate international headquarters in the united kingdom and the payments is made through western union money transfer, i will add the $1500 to the money i will send as soon as i have made the payments,i will need you to help me send the money to my pick up agent HQ in the UK through western union money transfer, this can be done from any post office,there is always western union money transfer section in most post offices,i would have done it myself but as i am at sea and didnt bring my credit card aboard,.I will appreciate your help here and thanks for your understanding.

Await your reply.


<He sends me a dummy email purporting to be from paypal, not a bad job either and it looks like he has looked up the BSB I gave him as being from Commonwealth bank to make it look more genuine, pity the account number is fake.>

Hi Helvis

you must be misunderstanding me the price for the van was $38000 for the 24ft or $53000 for the 26ft. I will go to the bank tomorrow and check my account with the manager. You will have to put in the extra 23000 before I can let your driver take the van. Can you tell me the sort of tow hitch your driver has because if he has the wrong one he will not be able to tow the van. I need to know this most importantly I may have to weld a new one - at no extra cost to you of course.
Thankyou Stuart


Quote:
Wed, Oct 10, 2012
how much am i adding now?please get back asap so that i can proceed with the additional payment.


Quote:
Thu, Oct 11, 2012
Hi Helvas You need to be adding $23000 less the money for courier so It should be $21400 to complete sale. I will be needing a copy of you driver lisence or passport to take to licensing to do transfer. You need to tell me what sort of hitch your courier has - treg, QR, hyland, poly block or other type. This is most important to me. Thankyou Stuart


Quote:
Thu, Oct 11, 2012
i have just made the additional payment and i expected paypal to have gotten back to you,all you need do is get to post office with $1500 cash,fill out the form and hand it over to the person in charge,MTCN will be on the receipt issued to you after sending the money so you will need to send the details to paypal by replying to any of their mails and your acct will be credited shortly after doing that.


Quote:
Thu, Oct 11, 2012
Hello Helvis I have just been to see the bank in town but when I spoke to the manager he says no payment is in my account yet. I said it is very important and because I am a good customer he said he will call me when it comes in. You still haven't told me what sort of hitch we need. Is it treg qr hyland poly block or something else. You must tell me quick so I can change it, it sometimes takes me over a day to do this so it must be done before the courier driver comes. Stuart

Quote:
Thu, Oct 11, 2012
sorry,you are new to this,all you need do now is get to post office with $1500 cash and transfer to my agent and send the details to paypal for verification so that they can release the pending payment into your account as the money was placed on hold and will only be credited into your account as soon as you email them the western union details of the excess fund meant for the pick up.i expected paypal to have emailed you to this effect.get it all done at the post office and get back so that we can finalize everything.


Quote:
Thu, Oct 11, 2012

Hello Helvis I am sorry i did not really understand why i have to do it this way. it is hard to get to the post office these days since it burnt down 2 months ago so we have to go to the next town 100 miles away witch is why I am using the email these days and to tell the truth it is easier. You still have not tell me what sort of hitch to use, so how can you courier tow van away with wrong hitch. and i will need address to post courier money to when I go to hingerford Thankyou Stuart


Quote:
Thu, Oct 11, 2012
you try and get the hitch that you know that will be convenient to tow the van and all other arrangement would have been made and my agent will also come and iron things out with you what hitch and how it's going to be towed,so get to post office tomorrow and get the money sent so that the pending payment will be released and credited into your bank account and we can finalize everything asap.


Quote:
Fri, Oct 12, 2012
i am still waiting to read from you regarding the details you are given at western union after transferring the $1500 to my agent.kindly get the details sent to paypal so that the whole fund will be credited to your account and we can arrange time for pick up.


Quote:
Fri, Oct 12, 2012
Dear Helvis I am getting confused yesterday you say go to post office but now western union I never hear of western union around here so I think it is better to just get my bank to do transfer. I have done this before when buying vehicle and it was easy.You still must tell me sort of hitch you driver need. Get him to massage me cause I dont think you understand. Maybe you would prefer to buy my 26ft van cause it is much more modern and has a multifit omni direction hitch. I know it is $15000 more but it is really a lot better and I will be able to do it cheaper for you only extra $10000. Please let me know. Yours Stuart!


Quote:
Fri, Oct 12, 2012
firstly the western union section is also post office as all post offices have the western union facilities,you visit any post office and send the money to my agent and send the MTCN to paypal by replying to the payment notification sent to you earlier so that the pending payment will be released and credited into your account.

Secondly the hitch is not the problem,my agent will figure out the best hitch to be used in towing it since it's their work and you shouldn't be disturbing yourself about that,once the payment has been made,they come around meet you and finalize,i already sent your contact number to them so they will be calling you after making the payment so get to post office and get it all done.
thanks.

Fri, Oct 12, 2012
Hello Helvis, I dont really like the way you are talking to me I know what I am talking about with the tow hitch as I have been dealing with these things for 40 years and would prefer if you could get your driver to contact me so I could set up the right one. I have had this problem before with these young people who call themselves experts and get here with the wrong tow setup. But if you think this is ok then on your head be it, I was only trying to help make a smooth transaction. You will have to send the payment details again because I cant find them anymore. I know they are on the computer somewhere but I cant find it. I will get the money from my safe and give it to my son Stuart jnr to go to higgleford post office because it is too far for me at my age and he likes to go there to see the mud wrestling. Thankyou Stuart

Quote:
Fri, Oct 12, 2012
sorry for sounding like that and i really appreciate your concern.i have told them and they will be contacting you once the payment has gone through and they will sort it out as i already told them the size and fit of the van they are coming to pick.
here is the details where the money will be sent.

Fri, Oct 12, 2012
Hello there helvis

I have given the $1500 to young Stuart to take to the post office in higglesford plus $100 spending money. I will take him about 3 hours to drive there if he doesnt do something stupid. I have lent him my mobile phone so he can get in touch with me if something goes wrong but I said to him go straight to the post office first thing and make payment to Roanld James in the England. Yours Stuart

Hello helvis we had a terrible storm sweep through here last night and they have only just restored our power a few hours ago. I have been frantically trying to telephone Stuart jnr but he is not answering his phone. If you got a meesage from the western union that must mean he is ok right. I am so worried that he has had an accident and is lying hurt somewhere. But he must be ok if western union sent you a message right. He is my only son so I must keep trying to call. Yours Stuart



Quote:
Sat, Oct 13, 2012

Tue, Oct 16, 2012

look at the western union receipt very well,there is 10 digit number there,it is the number the agent will present at western union shop when he want to pick the money up,please double check it and get back to me,it will be at the back o the page you sent to me(the other side).



<attached terms and conditions downloaded from WU site >

Quote:
Tue, Oct 16, 2012
hi helvis I looked on the back of the reciept and there is nothing about 10 digit number. I am sending you a copy and check it yourself. Thanks Stuart



Quote:
Tue, Oct 16, 2012
you will need to call western union and ask for it as there must be a reference number for every payment made through western union money transfer,it the the number that the beneficiary will present at any western union shop to claim the money so call them that the recipient was unable to pick up the money you have sent and get back to me.
thanks.



Quote:
Tue, Oct 16, 2012

hi helvis they said they cannot do it because secure transfer and not give out over phone and recipiant must login to security website they send to recievor of money and that is only way to get code. I think it is stupid way to do money transfer and much easier to use bank like i always do in past. thankyou Stuart


Quote:
Tue, Oct 16, 2012
may be you cancel the money transfer and get to another post office and get it all done as the only form of payment accepted by my freight company to their HQ is western union.



Quote:
Wed, Oct 17, 2012
I thought that a good idea to, but when I ring post office they say I must send Stuart jnr becase he is one who sign form and he must past security test and then must wait 7 days for money refund. I am giving up on westeren union they are no help at all. Stuart


Quote:
Wed, Oct 17, 2012
go with stuart jnr to the post office and tell them to give you the reference number(MTCN) so that the recipient can pick up the money,i think that is better instead of waiting for another 7days for the refund or what do you think?


Wed, Oct 17, 2012
yes you are probably right I will speak to Stuart when he gets back from work and see when he is able to go to the post office but it is too far for me. Stuart

Wed, Oct 17, 2012
Hello helvis I have spoken to Stuart and explained the situation to him. he needs to speak with his boss to see if he can finish work early. he is angry that he has to drive to higglesford again because it takes 3 hours but i told him he must do it so we can close this deal with you. Stuart

Wed, Oct 17, 2012
sounds good mate,tell him to do just that or he should go to another post office to make the transfer so he will be given the MTCN.



Quote:
Sat, Oct 20, 2012

Sat, Oct 20, 2012

hi Helvis I have some bad news. I was checking the van today while I was showing the 26 footer to a buyer. Your van has a broken rear axle which means your courier wont be able to pick it up this week while I fix it, at no charge to you of course! young Stuart phoned today and gave me a code he got from the post office for the union transfer it is 64869351547 sorry anout the delay for the driver but it is best to fix these things before pickup thanks Stuart

Quote:
Mon, Oct 22, 2012

I enjoyed reading this - especially about the tow hitch, which the lad didn't want to talk about at all! A nice waste of his time ... and even more so with your other baits as well.
