He saw the ad for my car on carsales.com.au. He first contacted me by text and told me to email him with details about my car, why I\'m selling etc. After I responded he sent another email saying he wanted to pay ASAP as it\'s for his sons graduation from Charles Darwin University in the NT. As mentioned in other reports for this guy, he made a few spelling errors, plus due to the urgency in his email things just didn\'t add up, so I decided to do a Google search and came across all the other reports people had made on him.

Copy of 2nd email below:
Thank you for the mail,i am okay with the little details have read in the advert compare to the others have seen recently and please Does it have any more history I should be aware of and why are you selling if you don\'t mind my asking.I work with New Zealand Oil and Gas (NZOG) and we are presently offshore in New Zealand Taranaki Basin on kapo project. We do not have access to phone at the moment,its 20days off and 11days on,which is why I contacted you with internet messaging facility.

I want it to be the perfect graduation gift and a surprise package for him .Where is it located at the moment and I will really appreciate if you can email more info.

In regards to payment ,all i will need is your bank details or pay pal payment email and name to set up purchase,as i don\'t have access to my bank account online as am not with my credit card details here on our mine site but i have my ANZ bank account linked up with my PayPal account so I will be paying you through PayPal to your nominated bank account .Have been introduce to a reputable shipping company that will handle the delivery after the payment clears to your account.I will really appreciate if you can email more info..
