I received the following text message:
'Hi seller is the item posted on gumtree still for sale? kindly get back to me with my mail (email@example.com)'
After I replied via email to say my vehicle was still for sale I received this reply:
'Thanks for the response, I would have loved to call you directly but due to the nature of my work we do not have access to phone at the moment, which is why I contacted you with Internet message facility.
I am buying this for my first son who just graduated on top of his class at Charles Darwin University in NT, he studied Building Design and Arcitecture. I want it to be the perfect graduation gift for him and am making it a surprise package. Does it have any history I should be aware of? and why are you selling if you don't mind my asking. I don't mind adding an extra $200 for you to just take down the posting..I am already in talks with freighters that will handle the pickup and delivery. I will really appreciate if you can email more info
Due to the nature of my work i am a very busy man working all day,am a sailor am presently on-board, i don't have access to my bank account online as am not with my credit card details here but i have my ANZ bank account link up with my PayPal so I will be paying you through PayOal to your nominated bank account or better still is if you have a PayPal account , please get back to me with your BSB and account details or PayPal account so I can proceed with the payment and contact the courier agent who will come to pick it up and deliver it in NT for my son . Await your reply'
The text came as if it was already a contact in my phone under the name grick, asking me to reply by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. The reply I received from him seemed odd, so I googled his name and found him already reported on this site as a scammer so I thought I would also report his contact to me.
