Received a text message from \"Chris\" hours after listing my car for sale on Gumtree.com.au.

Text read:
\"Mate,is your Car still available,Please get back to me on cris.patrick23@gmail.com for the firm price as my phone line is presently scrambled.
Regards\"

After replying via email asking him to inspect the car before negotiating price I received this:

\"Thanks a lot for the email .I am away at sea at the moment,on the west aquarius submersible to be precise, 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. What is your last negotiable price? and where is it located at the moment?

I am buying this for my next holiday, and i want it to be delivered before my arrival in NT . However,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 freighters that will handle the pick-up and delivery to my dad.I will really appreciate if you can email more info and if possible more photos .
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 apaypal account proper at www.paypal.com.au and I will make the payment through paypal, this way, all I will need is your paypal email address.
Cheers!!\"
