Further to other reports on this name, I was suspicious about this contact (car advertised on several sites including ebay and gumtree) but replied anyway. I can report that the next step is that the alleged buyer wants the car couriered to Darwin and asks you to arrange this on his behalf, saying he will pay you the extra money, in my case $950. You then receive a genuine-looking email claiming to be from Paypal, saying that the money has been debited from the buyer's account but a temporary hold has been placed on it, so that it can't be cleared to your account until you have transferred the "courier" money via Western Union to someone in China. The address given to me was: FIRST NAME HUAN SURNAME XU Address 18 Suhao Building Nanxin Road Nanshan District Shenzhen China
