Advertised my 4WD Prado on Gumtree, within 1 hour had an SMS from a +44 7624 803803 (+44 is Ireland I believe) with the following text - \"hello, i will like to know the condition and the price 4 d car. send me more pics on jasonpenderson4k@gmail.com.await Jason\". I didnt reply as the add on Gumtree had all the details he was asking for.....

Shortly after I received an Email as follows: \"Hi is you ad still available for sales on gumtree? please reply to my personal email if its still available And Ur ONO reply to my mikebowen338@yahoo.com.au\". I responded advising it was still available to receive the next email as follows:

Thanks a lot for the email. Am buying it for my son who just graduated ontop of his class in Autralia national university (ANU) ,he studied Business Law and Professional Ethics Minor and am so proud of him . I want it as a suprise package to appreciate him towards his achievement and to be delivered before my arrival NT as my family lives in NT.

I work with AWE New Zealand Pty Ltd and we are presently offshore in New Zealand Taranaki Basin on kapo project. We do not have access to phone at the moment,its 15days off and 15days on,which is why I contacted you with internet messaging facility. Where is it located at the moment?Does it have any history I should be aware of? and why are you selling if you don\'t mind my asking.I am already in talks with the courier that will handle the pick-up and delivery it in NT.

As regards the payment, I can pay you through direct bank deposit,using ppal instant bank wire transfer service, I will need your bank details. If you are not comfortable with that, you can set up a paypal account proper at www.paypal.com.au and I will make the payment through paypal, this way, all I will need is your paypal email address.

Thanks and reply asap...

Do they really think we are stupid ....???
