Once you reply they tell you they are working off shore for NZ Oil and Gas in nz and that will transfer the funds by paypal to your account. They ask for either your paypal acc details or bank details. Then when you send your details they ask you to take the add off and let anyone who rings that it is sold and they will organise their transport when the funds have been transferred

replied to an add in Gumtree for my boat, asked for my banking details to transfer funds. Seemed funny that she wanted to buy the boat and have it couriered to Darwin where I imagine there are a lot of small boats for sale. The cost of transporting my boat to Darwin would be more than the boat is worth.
