Trying to get my bank account and paypal details for my car, yet never viewed it and didn't seem to ask many questions. Only contacted by email as he made out he was working where there was no phone reception. Also I am based in Melbourne, told me he was based in NT. Why would any person buy a car they have not seen or viewed, not spoken to the person on the phone, also average standard car that is available all over Australia. Also freight costs would be very expensive. Alarm bells starting going off very early then I went on google and read scam reports. STAY AWAY!!! I don't know what is wrong with some people :(
