Posted an ad on Gumtree to sell my car and within minutes received a inquiry by SMS. I replied to the email address given and again within minutes received the following:
Am buying it for my lovely Son who just graduated on top of his class in Australia national university (ANU) ,he studied Business Law and Professional Ethics Minor and am so proud of him . I want it as a surprise package to appreciate him towards his achievement and to be delivered before my arrival NT as my family lives in NT.
I work with AWE New Zealand Pty Ltd and we are presently offshore in New Zealand Taranaki Basin on kapo project. We do not have access to receive calls at the moment,its 15 days off and 15 days on,which is why I contacted you with internet messaging facility. Where is it located at the moment?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 the courier that will handle the pick-up and delivery it in NT.
As regards the payment, I can pay you through direct bank deposit,using Paypal instant bank wire transfer service, I will need your bank details. If you are not comfortable with that, you can set up a Paypal 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.
And again i have sent some of my co-worker to search this for me so you can see this kind of email so deal with me directly
Thanks and reply asap.
