I received the following text:
'I'm interested in your listed car ad, what is your last firm price & its present condition?Kindly E-mail me at (peterclinton90@gmail.com)'

I replied by email that my car was still for sale, and received the following email in reply:

'Thanks for getting back,i'm cool 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 momement 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,please get back to me with your paypal details so I can process the payment,you can alternatively send your bsb acct name and number if you have no PayPal acct.I have also contacted my courier who will come for pick up and deliver it to my place in Darwin after the whole fund has been cleared into your acct.
Await your reply'

Besides this reply being almost identical to a reply I had received about 5 minutes earlier from Matthew Grick, who had been reported as a scammer to this site on numerous occasions, I also found it a bit odd.

Await your reply" Said it would be fine, but needed his photo ID and a person to see the car. Their response: "i would have called or come to see it in person but due to the nature of my work.my courier will come for the collection after the whole fund is cleared into your account and also do the signing of the necessary paper work if at all there is.Get back to me with your bsb,account name and number so that i can proceed with the payment asap as i will like it delivered to my place before my arrival in couple of days and below is my details."
