Thanks a lot for the email. Am buying it for my son who just graduated ontop of his class in Autralia national university (ANU) ,he studied Business Law and Professional Ethics Minor and am so proud of him . I want it as a suprise package to appreciate him towards his achievement and to be delivered before my arrival NT as my family lives in NT.
I work with AWE New Zealand Pty Ltd and we are presently offshore in New Zealand Taranaki Basin on kapo project. We do not have access to phone at the moment,its 15days off and 15days on,which is why I contacted you with internet messaging facility. Where is it located at the moment?Does it have any history I should be aware of? and why are you selling if you don't mind my asking.I am already in talks with the courier that will handle the pick-up and delivery it in NT.
As regards the payment, I can pay you through direct bank deposit,using ppal instant bank wire transfer service, I will need your bank details. If you are not comfortable with that, you can set up a paypal account proper at www.paypal.com.auand I will make the payment through paypal, this way, all I will need is your paypal email address.
And again i have sent some of my co-worker to search this for me so you can see this kind of email so deal with me directly
Thanks and reply asap.

Scan started as a text with no ph number, just asking if item was still for sale, came thro at 3.30am which rang alarm bells anyway. Below is my reply and his. I then copied the link to this site and asked him to follow it for payment advise, that was the best bit!! Almost got me, as I was sure Paypal was safe, lucky I looked into it more.
It sounds good to know that it is still available for sale. I did go through your advert and I am satisfied with it. I am okay with it and would love to go ahead with the deal right away because this meets my perfect search for time being now. I am contacting you via email, I am on duty and coming to your residence for inspection won't be possible, so you have to assure me that its in condition described. You may now consider me a favorite buyer and if possible withdraw the posting from the site immediately so that I can be rest assured that it is all mine . I don't mind adding an extra $200.00 for you just to take down the posting.
Like I said earlier, 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 account so I will be paying you through PayPal 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. Await your reply .
