Scam Email
Thanks for the detailed explanation and I really appreciate your honesty as that is what i really need most as wont be able to come for inspection as am at work ,just want to buy the it as a surprise package for my son to show my appreciation in my absentia and i really believe he will really enjoy it.I would have love to ask for inspection but am making it a %100 surprise package for him and i dont want him to know about it until it delivered. Please confirm your firm price as i dont want misunderstanding in the payment,The fund is ready and available in my account so am ready to transfer the fund as soon as you get back to me with your payment details and pick up could take place after payment clears into your account as i dont have much time over the internet .Thanks. On Thu, Jul 25, 2013 at 11:39 PM, Rob Good Morning Neil. That’s a remarkable job you have. And thank god there is internet down there! So let me understand this – you are purchasing a car you will not see in person, and then ship this to Northern Territory for your Sons graduation present? Car history – I have driven this car from Sydney to Queensland & back again once, primary it was used to run around Sydney from western suburbs to the airport region, then I changed work and drove it to the blue mountains every day. Driving is perfect, recently replaced power steering rack as it was damaged when it snowed here – so its not good for driving on snow. (don\'t think that’s an issue in NT) replaced LPG tank as it was 10 years old and by law had to change it, New tyres purchased last rego. I believe I\'m the Forth owner of the car, purchased from a mobile sales rep who drove it out west NSW. I drive primarily on LPG, but always keep a good 1/4 tank of fuel just in case. I get about 450km atm from gas, but used to get 500\'s – so the service I mentioned will bring it back up. The Front Bumper has some damage from bumps etc. (can send image) Some cosmetic blemishes from car parks, bushes and such, working aircon, power steer, radio, cd, cruise control, horns, airbags, dash – Fuel gauge works both fuel sources, reflecting whatever your using at time. As I live only a few minutes from work, it\'s not really needed, its like owning a race horse and no track. – perfect for jumping on the motor way and scooting up the mountains or whatever or cruising several hundred kms in one go, even suitable for city driving, but to much car for what I need it for (my town council also makes the parking spaces around here tiny) . Wife also recently got learners licence and its too big for her to learn in.. So we want a little car to nip around, zip here zap there. So not selling due to mechanical issues or anything like that. Paypal is setup if you wish to go that way – happy to use this method as it protects everyone. ( INCORRECT - CLEARLY THIS GUY WAS GOING TO SCAM VIA PAYPAL AND COULD HAVE COST ME A FORTUNE!!!) Let me know what you would like to do Kind Regards Rob I From: neil parker Date: Friday, 26 July 2013 8:09 AM To: Rob Subject: Re: Car is available Thanks for the reply and so sorry that i couldn\'t call you due to the nature of my work,I work with AWE New Zealand Pty Ltd and we are presently on rig at the moment,on the west aquarius submersible to be precise.I would have loved to call you directly but due to the nature of my work we do not have access to phone at the moment,its 20days off and 10days on,which is why I contacted you with internet messaging facility and where is it located at the moment. I am buying this for my first son who just graduated ontop of his class at Charles Darwin University in NT ,He studied Building Design & Architecture. I want it to be the perfect graduation gift and a surprise package for him ,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 freighters that will handle the pickup and delivery to my son.I will really appreciate if you can email more info. As regards the payment, I can pay you through direct bank deposit,using paypal 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 and I will make the payment through paypal, this way, all I will need is your paypal email address. Kind Regards, Neil. On Thu, Jul 25, 2013 at 10:37 PM, Rob wrote: Good morning Neil Car was posted for sale yesterday so very much still for sale. There is some wiggle room with the price, as mentioned she is due for service so I would reduce price to accommodate that extra cost. Located in xxxxx for inspection. Fell free to call xxxxxxxx to arrange. Kind regards Rob
