Details of Scam Report
Only just today I have had the exact same experience. Same emails out Inked below, except he was a petroleum engineer, on a rig, having trouble calling etc etc. asking for Paypal details. Unfortunately I gave him my email address for PayPal, but then found this site. So I have closed all accounts with them now. Be ware, whoever this is they are very convincing, and sound legit. Below is a transcript of my discussions with this person;

As stated, I was stung $100 by having to re advertise the car because someone said they'd buy it. I'm happy to 'hold' it, and not accept any further offers until the funds arrive in the paypal account, but I can't afford to keep re-advertising. Sorry... But certainly happy to hold for the moment.
Best regards, Xxxxxxx

As it is Saturday, and Monday is a public holiday, I wont be able to start the ball rolling until at least Tuesday, with roadworthy certificate, then paperwork into main roads by Wednesday or Thursday, so pickup might need to be Friday or even early next week.
When I see the funds cleared, then I will proceed. Sorry for the weariness of this transaction, but I have already been stung by another 'email' approach regarding this car. 
Talk soon,
Best regards, Xxxxxxx

PayPal sorted, but I noticed in setting it up a couple of things;
* PayPal will only accept payments to an account of $12,000 at a time, so this means 2 x payments of $12,000, then a payment of $4,500 would need to be made. Total $28,500.
* My paypal account details are simply an email address. So the account is;       Xxxxxxx@xxxxxx
Once all funds are cleared by Paypal in full, I will then begin to submit all paper work to Main Road and get the Roadworthy done. It will need someone (if not you) someone you know ( not a courier) to sign the documents over to ie rego, etc. how do you see this working?
Best regards, Xxxxxx
