I advertised my caravan for sale on gumtree.com.au.

http://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/bardon/caravan/-sunshine-viscount-supreme-1975/1069913375

Steve texted me, asking me to directly email him back because he was interested in the caravan. I tried to call back, but the number does not exist. I sent him an email detailing the caravan further, then he sent me an email back.

These were his words in the email he then sent to me:

"Thanks for mailing back,am ok with the price and the condition,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,its 15days off and 15days on and that's why I contacted you with internet messaging facility.Regarding the payment,i will be paying you through PayPal,please get back to me with your paypal details so i can process the payment,you can alternatively send your bsb and acct 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."
