I placed an advert to sell my car on carsales.com.au and was contacted by this person wanting to purchase my car without inspection etc. copies of emails below for reference. Thank God I googled their name before sending any info! (and thanks to scamdex and the person who reported this earlier . . . )
NB Carsales.com.au has a feature where you can have your mobile no protected from people seeing it; I guess this is why - I'd recommend you spend the extra $15 and pay for that protection; I certainly will be next time.
SMS received from a "Roslyn":
"I will like to know if your car is still available,get back to me on (rgaffney200@gmail.com) for easier contact.I'm keen to buy it."
I then sent an email back to the email address:
"Roslyn, The car is still for sale. Please call me to discuss if you are interested, or provide a number and I can call you. Thanks, [my details]"
I then received this:
"Thanks a lot for the email. I'm away at sea at the moment, and we are presently offshore in New Zealand on project. We do not have access to phone at the moment, it's 15days off and 15days on,which is why I contacted you with internet messaging facility. Where is it located at the moment? I will like you to get back to me with the present condition,how many owners has the car had?how many kilometres has it done?has it ever been in a crash?Has it been kept in a garage?Does the car has Roadworthy Certificate? and i want it delivered before my arrival.I won't be able to come for the inspection due to the nature of my work and i would have called but our calling is restricted.Regarding the payment, pls get back to me with your final asking price and your bsb and acct number so i can process the payment,you can alternatively send your PayPal email.,. I have also contacted my courier who will come for pick up after the whole fund has been cleared into your acct. Please dont bother to reply back if you are not okay with my payment method. Regards "
I then sent him extensive information about the vehicle, but no additional personal info (thank God!), and received this back 10 minutes later: "Hi, I appreciate your honesty with the detailed explanation with regards to your words on the car status,am really satisfied and i also appreciate your honesty about the condition of the car as that is what i really need most as wont be able to come for inspection as am on-board. I'm so keen to purchase,kindly send me details for payment so i can proceed as my pick up agent will ring you for pick up after you confirm to me you got the funds cleared into your account. Thanks"
