+1 James Curtis car purchase
 Scammer
  Information
Name:
   James Curtis
Email Address:
   rydekyde@fastmail.com
Advertised a car for sale and receive text to purchase. But had to supply bank details and paypal details. I asked him to call me and he actually rang. Had a fake American accent and claims to be an Australian soldier based where phone does not work due to security. He asked no details aboutvthe car and when I asked him which car, he replied. How many am I selling. I said two, and offered to buy both without even knowing what kind of car it was. Red flag . Obviously a scam, but his initial contact looked like a buyer. He is just looking for bank account numbers to scam.
