The same information saying she was at sea, agent would pick up etc

"Jane Litoris" responded to a Carsales advertisement. She left a message on my mobile sent from "Jane". There was no phone number or email address attached to the name so I'm not sure how that was achieved. The message read: "Hi,Is your vehicle still available for sale? pls kindly email me to my mail (janelitoris(AT)gmail.com). if you still have it
I did respond via my gmail account, and after some correspondence established that Jane was "at sea" and keen to purchase the car. She emailed to me, "Will it be ok if i pass authority to my pick up agent to handle all necessary signatory on my behalf?"
Then she emailed that she needed to pay a freight company via Western Union (to deliver the car), asking if she could sent that money ($1,200) additionally to the car price for me to pay directly. At this point my suspicions hardened. The next correspondence sealed it: she declared she had transferred the car money (she had not) and asked that I pay the freight to an address in China as per the emails below. Here is the address: Name: Wenjun Li Address:32 Tian Yao Road City:Qingpu State: Shanghai Zip: 201700 Country:China
