I had advertised a car on CarsGuide.com.au

Received a reply from Jamie Scott requesting the final asking price.

I replied stating the price and current condition of the car.

Within minutes there was a reply saying that's fine and requested that I send him my PayPal details or BSB Acc number for tfer of the money. The email also stated that once the payment was complete, he would arrange a courier to come and collect the car.

This all sounded too good to be true so I checked the New Zealand Oil and Gas company website (which he referenced) and discovered this is an existing scam.
