The same as everyone else, wanting to purchase my car which I advertised on Gumtree. Sent the same emails as everyone else recieved about being a marine biologist and unable to view the car, but a courier will pick up and until I decided to google his name had fallen for it. Thank goodness I did not pass on any information but my email and mobile number which are on the ad anyway. The old say if it\'s too good to be true it usually is. On the bright side I now have a pay pal account!! Seriously though apart from wasting my time no one will give away thier goods without recieving money first so what he is trying to achieve I do not know.
