I recently advertised a Toyota Prado and T Van camper trailer for sale in Gumtree and initially received an SMS message \" Pitt would like to know if your caravan is till for sale if yes get back to him on pitt.ben624@gmail.com with present condition and lowest price

t which I responded

\"Hi,thank you for your enquiry and interest re. the sale of my Toyota Prado, the T Van camper trailer as well as the full range of accessories. I am hoping the sell the entire package as a whole, but may be prepared, under the right circumstances and price, to split the offer.

My T Van meets and in some instances exceeds the specifications of the current TOP model T Van. It is very clean and otherwise in top mechanical condition.

Rather than belabour further points in writing may I suggest you call me on Mobile 0416 104 155 so we can discuss the matter.

I look forward to your call.

and then received the following (below) message. On checking with Google it seems quite obvious that this is an attempted scam and I will discontinue contact.
