After this person saw my ads at Gumtree, she texted me "Your furntiture is still up available for Sale? your last asking price and tell me the condition, email me at" I did email her. Then her reply was "Thanks for getting back.i would like you to get back to me with the list of the item you have with the price likewise the condition as described on the advert...i work with New Zealand Oil and Gas (NZOG) and we are presently offshore in New Zealand Taranaki Basin on kupe project.We do not have access to phone at the moment and that's why I contacted you with internet messaging facility.Regarding the payment,i will be paying you through PayPal linked up with my westpac bank account.Kindly get back to me with your paypal details so i can process the payment,you can alternatively send your bsb account name and number if you have no PayPal account.
