I put my boat up on Boat Sales and he responded with the following dialoge. I went back to him after two emails and told him I thought it was a scam. Be careful. See following details:
Thanks for getting back,i'm cool with the price likewise the condition as described on the advert,i work with New Zealand Oil and Gas (NZOG) and we are presently offshore in New Zealand Taranaki Basin on kupe project.We do not have access to phone at the moment and that's why I contacted you with internet messaging facility.Regarding the payment,i will be paying you through PayPal linked up with my westpac bank account,please get back to me with your paypal details so i can process the payment,you can alternatively send your bsb acct name and number if you have no PayPal acct.I have also contacted my courier who will come for pick up and deliver it to my place in Darwin after the whole fund has been cleared into your acct. i would have called or come to see it in person but due to the nature of my work.my courier will come for the collection after the whole fund is cleared into your account and also do the signing of the necessary paper work if at all there is.Get back to me with your bsb,account name and number so that i can proceed with the payment asap as i will like it delivered to my place before my arrival in couple of days
Email left me to be a little careful and I ended the conversation by letting the scammer know I would not want to proceed as I believed he was a scammer. I then checked on this site and viola here it is.

Exactly as described. Offered to buy my car and then said he needed to send $950 to shipping agent in China via Western Union. I said OK but only after all the funds appeared in my account. Not surprisingly, his emails stopped!
Original contact made via SMS. Sender given as: WebSMS, sent 22 Aug 2015 7:18pm. Reply was not possible - I thought this was because it was sent by carsales.com.au but now think that he used a 3rd part SMS service to avoid using official channels.
