This is the email he sent me after I received a text from him wanting to know details of the car for sale.

Hi mate,thanks for the reply.I have read the ad and it\'s okay by me.My work does not permit me to come for the inspection (very busy and currently out of town).Would have loved to call but our base right now is bad so we can get along via e-mail. I will be paying you through PayPal,please get back to me with your PayPal name and email so i can proceed with the payment immediately and if you don\'t have one it\'s very easy to set up visit (www.paypal.com.au).I will also like you to remove the Advert online and consider me as your favourite buyer.

Note:Please provide your address in your reply so that my shipping agent can locate you when coming for the pick up.

Thanks
