So I emailed him not thinking anything was off..
" I want to know few things about this,like, 1. Whatâ€™s the condition ? 2. Why are you selling ? 3. what year is it serviced last.4.How long have you owned it? Email me back with your PayPal email and also your Full name, PayPal fee will be my responsibility and i will take it for $1300 including the PayPal surcharges..Pick Up will be arranged by me.I will be waiting to read from you.
I responded with answers to his questions except I said I don't have PayPal. I knew something was off.
He responded with;
"Sound great its is in a good condition. I feel comfortable this way as I am a very simple person and understanding. Not that i dont like to pay you through the way you want but I insisted on paypal because i don't have access to my bank account online as i don't have internet banking and i can't go to the bank due to the nature of my job, but i can pay from my paypal account, as i have my bank a/c attached to it, i will need you to give me your paypal email address so i can make the payments asap for the item and pls if you don't have paypal account yet, it is very easy to set up, go to www.paypal.com and get it set up after you have set it up i will only need the e-mail address you use for registration with paypal so as to put the money through. I hope you understand me and I will be glad if you sell this to me and get a PayPal Account Set up so i can make payment straight away into it , Thanks so much and I will be waiting to hear back
ITS OBVIOUSLY TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE!!!! STAY AWAY!!!
