First was the following text; \"Sent from Paul, Hi jst come across ur ad posted on Gumtree and was so very interested to buy. Pls email me paulbenson888@gmail.com with ur willing price ASAP.


Then the email: Thanks for getting back to me,The price of what am buying as advertised is okay by me by offering $100 to hold it and make sure it sold to me alone.. I will strongly like to make an outright purchase of this immediately due to your Integrity as stated in your ad which shown that your a real seller,I really love the condition of what amb buying but please for further assurance that this real just email me some pictures of it asap.. I may sound rude,but please understand that
i have to be caution of what am buying as well due to untruthful seller here.. I would have come down myself for the inspection and make the transaction done in person but due to the nature of my work I couldn\'t..i\'ll like to know the following:

(1) How long have you had it?

(2) I will like to know the reason why you are selling it..

(3) Hope i\'ll enjoy it?

(4) What are the major problem of it?

Note that i\'ll be responsible for shipping and handling. I have decided to use the program \"Buyer and Seller Protection\" offered by PayPal Inc in order to make the transaction done fast cos it take 2-3 days business. Do bear with me and get back to me on time with your PayPal account name and email or easily send an invoice to this same email am using to communicate with you as its the same thing with my PayPal also. I want only legit transactions!If you are not aware of how they operate you should know that they will give both of us proper protection and also if you don\'t have an account yet you can simply set up one via www.paypal.com.au [1] after payment is confirmed to you
by PayPal, you\'ll receive a confirmation stated that someone has sent you money,that means if you use this your email address to set up the PayPal account as well.. As soon as payment is confirmed by PayPal my mover would come down for the inspection and shipping handling,please
provide me your full name,Visible home address(street,city,postcode,state) and your PayPal name and email address so that I can start making the payment. as soon as i can.

Thanks and reply asap.

Then the second email:I am originally from Adelaide but right now am very busy at my new job off shore 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,due to bad mobile network.It the more reason why I contacted you with internet messaging facility.There is no way i can come for a personal inspection and pickup after purchase , due to the nature of my job.Have thought of a courier pickup agent who will be coming on my behalf after payment is been made.
