I advertised a second hand car.

Here's Emily's version over about 6 emails.

Interested in car for my son....I am overseas so will pay by paypal...(When asked)Here are some made up details for new registered keeper(Made up but localish to me)....I will arrange courier.....I am at sea, don't have credit card and cannot pay courier.....can i transfer more into you paypal account and you arrange the courier....I am sending the car to Norther Ireland....

I replied once more with a the URL of a top google search result for 'gumtree car buyer scam' (or similar) signed off with 'For that reason, i'm out' (typed in Banbatynian Scotish accent).
