Got a text saying:
Hello, I will like to only email me the firm asking price to firstname.lastname@example.org and condition of your vehicle.
Emailed some details (stupidly) and got the following response:
Thanks for your response. I saw your add and I am really interested in the purchase of your Vehicle and i believe you must have buyer\'s interested in the purchase . I am the tool pusher on the west Aquarius semi-submersible,contact via phone would have been the easiest means to talk to you, but we are out of cell phone range and the satellite phone is playing up, email is the best means of contact for me at the moment and i hope you can accommodate me on this?
Firstly I will like to know few things about this sales? What is the reason for selling it? when last was it serviced as well. Am ok with the price and the condition, but work does not permit me to come for the inspection (very busy and currently out of town) and i would have asked my courier agent to come and help me pay in cash,but due to the terms and condition of there services they don\'t help in paying on behalf of someone for security reasons. I will be paying you through PayPal the safe and easy way to pay online.. Kindly get back to me with your PayPal details(name and email address) so i can proceed with the payment immediately, but If you don\'t have a PayPal account you can easily set up one just log on to (www.paypal.com.au) and sign up as its very easy..
Once I googled the name of this ridiculous ship/submarine whatever, discovered that many people have had the same issue!
