Hi People
I received this email below while trying to sell my bike in the quokka. The first thing that was weird was he asked for the final price for my car when it is a motorbike advertised. Then the reply (below) was similar to one that my sister got selling her car. So I hope this helps someone out.

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.
Philip
