I had a very swift response to my advert for my home for sale. I responded with the script underneath this response from the so called Barry Craig as I felt it may be a scam... my intial contact to him was short..... it is under his response which has been cut and pasted here.




Hi thanks for mailing back,am ok with the price and the condition,am
buying it for my vacation,because i\'ll be coming soon from our rig as
am a petroleum project engineer on a rig offshore,i won\'t be able to come for
the inspection due to the nature of my work,i would have love to call
in person but we have call restriction due to bad weather condition our satellite server has been down.
i will be paying you through PayPal,pls get back to me with your
PayPal details so i can proceed with the payment and contact the
courier agent who will come to pick it up and deliver it in my place.
Await your reply.
Barry Craig
