Responded to boat sales advert on tradeboats.com.au using online SMS message asking to email kharm22@gmail.com to confirm price. Then received followup email reading:
""Thanks for the prompt response...I am ok with the price,due to the nature of my job and location...I will not be able to come for inspection am a very busy type as i work long hours everyday,i have gone through your advertisement and i am satisfied with it...As for the payment..i will be paying you via the fastest and secure way to pay online i.e (PayPal).If you don't have a paypal account, you can easily set up one...log on to www.paypal.com.au and sign up alternatively I can also use the paypal wire transfer method to make the payment into your bank account, I will need your full name, bank account number and the BSB to complete the payment.I have a private courier agent that will come for the pick up after the payment have been made ...so no shipping included.

You can now send me your payment details (Paypal email or bank details) so i can effect payment right away and also include your address in your reply so that my agent can locate you when coming for the pick up.

Await your response.

Thanks
