I posted my car on drive.com.au and within hours got a text message from an AUS number asking me if the car was still available and for me to email him at barryrichies345@gmail.com.

After a few almost normal emails and him saying he works at sea and is a busy man, he said he wanted to purchase the car and have it shipped to the NT as a graduation present for his son who just graduated from Charles Darwin University. I swapped a few emails and he said he was arranging payment (I provided my BSB and Acc\'t number but will check w/ my bank tomorrow), so it all seemed good. Then he said there was an issue with the freight company who he was hiring to move the car, and he asked if he paid the extra $1250 AUD to my account if I could pay them via western union. It was really strange because he said their HQ was in China, which caught me off guard as I quickly googled freight companies and there\'s no reason he\'d have to pay via Western Union or that their HQ would be in China.
