Quite simply went on Autotrader looking for a car. Came up with a Kia Sportage which I am well for a 2011 model the value is around £15000 so to good to be true at £6000. Anyway I still remained interested but contacted the e mail address and said why such a car at such a price. E mail back explaining her move to Cadiz in Spain and no desire to drive the right hand drive car there, so decided to sell it on to a UK resident etc etc etc. I e mailed again to say I might be interested and got another e mail giving ALL vehicle details (so I could check things) and great detail about a safe financial transaction through Google Wallet who would contact me to make arrangements once she received relevant details from me (ie: delivery point, contact number and so on). I DO NOT believe that is how Google would do it. Also look for suspect phrases and bad spelling on the e mail
