Tried to buy my car, below are details of the emails received

Thanks a lot for the email. I\'m away at sea at the moment,i work with New Zealand Oil and Gas (NZOG) and we are presently offshore in New Zealand Taranaki Basin on kapo project. We do not have access to phone at the moment,its 15days off and 15days on,which is why I contacted you with internet messaging facility. Where is it located at the moment?

I\'m very satisfied with your advert,i will like you to get back to me with her present condition and i want it delivered before my arrival.I won\'t be able to come for the inspection due to the nature of my work and i would have called but our calling is restricted.Regarding the payment, pls get back to me with your final asking price and your PayPal details so i can process the payment,you can alternatively send your sort code and acct number if you have no PayPal acct. I have also contacted my courier who will come for pick up after the whole fund has been cleared into your acct.
