Receieved the following email in response to my ad for a truck for sale:hello , i would like to know its present condition and price. I responded with my price (that was listed in the ad) and the condition. I received the following email response:Hi thanks for mailing back,am ok with the price and the condition,am buying it for my vacation,because i'll be coming soon from our rig as am a petroleum project engineer on a rig offshore,i won't be able to come for the inspection due to the nature of my work,i would have love to call in person but we have call restriction due to bad weather condition our satellite server has been down.i will be paying you through PayPal,please get back to me with your PayPal details so i can proceed with the payment and contact the courier agent who will come to pick it up and deliver it in my place.
Await your reply.
I was very suspicious. Copied and pasted his email to google and did a search and found this and other websites warning of this scam where they will basically reply to you with a fake PayPal email and try to get your personal information or bank account. Bastards!
