This person used my ad on Gumtree Australia to contact me first via sms then email they offered to purchase my car and pay via pay pal, they said I would receive email verifying deposit, I checked my pay pal account and no deposit had been made, they said check your email spam folder, still I found no email and had already told them the transaction had been cancelled I put their address into google and came up with this site and a few others as well with similar scams involving having the car shipped to Darwin and paying the shipping company etc, to much crap to go into here just delete the email and get on with your day
