Person contacted us via email after seeing our car for sale on gumtree. Asked for more details (i.e. pictures of interior) and engaged in conversation about sale. Said they were happy to buy, but was from Darwin and would arrange for car to be transported. Wanted bank details so transaction coudld be finalised. We became suspicious as a) English was a bit off b) seemed far too trusting c) seemed unusual someone would buy a car they hadn't seen. We requested some proof of id, they sent through a WA license which looked photo-shopped. We googled their email and found another report, which was exactly the same, from the same day, on this site.
We immeditately cancelled the transaction with them and adviced ACCC.
