I advertised my vehicle for sale and received a sms from Ramond asking me to deal with him via ramondjak@gmail.com . After emailing I was advised he was working for New Zealand oil & gas and was unable to negotiate other than email. He requested my personal banking details for cash deposit. He has fallen off the radar now !!
