This was in response to an advertisement I posted on Gumtree to sell a dinning suite. I received two txt messages within minuites of posting the ad. One from Mkw121@outlook.com and the other from alexbennett090@gmail.com.

I responded to Alexbennett saying yes the item was still for sale and received this response straight away to my gmail account.

"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, 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."

Needless to say I have ignored it. I live in Australia and am still trying to find the authority to report this to, but in the mean time will hope others will be warned off!
