put my car up for sale on gumtree, 10 minutes later get a txt saying
"Sent from: QPCXMM hi mate, is your car still for sales? pls advise on your firm price and get back to me through my email (email@example.com)"

"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 o not have access to phone at the moment, its 20 days off and 10 days 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 on top 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 me asking. I am already in talks with freighters that will handle the pick up 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.
