asking price is quite reasonable and affordable considering others

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

SCAM ON GUMTREE.
First I received this: "What's the present condition and final price of your listed ad ?? Your fast response is anticipated Thanks."
I replied giving details of how my listed ad isn't a specific item, and that you have to discuss your specifications for us to make it, I then received this:
"Thank you for the mail,i am okay with the condition Likewise your asking price is quite reasonable and affordable considering others I've seen lately, I'll have it for the listed price,please kindly send me 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 i will arrange for pick up and delivery by my freight agent after the cleared payment to your account. Many Thanks"
I knew it was fake for two reasons, one they didn't even acknowledge what I wrote in reply. Two they asked to pay in Paypal, and for it to be arranged through their freight agent.
Now with Paypal you need to understand it benefits the buyer more than the seller, so SELLERS BEWARE. Usually you would provide a receipt of delivery and/or proof that you dropped it off yourself to the person. If you don't have this the buyer can submit a request through paypal to call back the funds since they didn't receive their item.
Paypal will subtract the amount from the sellers account and send it back to the buyer. Therefore the buyer has both your item and the money back.
Additionally never go through the buyers freighting agent since they can say they never received an item to ship. Always go through your national/regional postage service OR your own government authorized one.
Stay save guys.

I just placed ad advertisement on Ebay for a Grand piano last night. This morning I received a note from Patricia Kampton wanting to buy my grand. It was interesting as she wanted it right away. I offered for her to come and view it as it is rather expensive and a grand but she was ready to pay the money into my account. So I googled her name out and saw it on this site. Funnily enuf her message text was the same. Lucky I was tempted to give her my account number but stopped to double check.
