After replying to this MSG I recieved a detailed email
- this is the email I recieved ,
Thanks a lot for the email .I am away at sea at the moment,on the west
aquarius submersible to be precise, we do not have access to phone at
the moment,its 15days off and 15days on,which is why I contacted you
with internet messaging facility. What is your last negotiable price?
and where is it located at the moment?
I am buying this for my next holiday, and i want it to be delivered
before my arrival in NT . However,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 freighters that will handle the pick-up and
delivery to my dad.I will really appreciate if you can email more info
and if possible more photos .
As regards the payment, I can pay you through direct bank
deposit,using ppal 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

I currently have a vehicle listed on Cars.com with my cellular number attached to the ad. I received a text message from 347-566-8676 that stated the following:
"Hello, is your Car still available, Please get back to me on email@example.com for the firm price as my phone line is presently scrambled.Regards"
The choice of wording sounded odd to me, so I did a Google search of the part of that message after the email. No surprise that that exact phrase has been posted by other persons who were targets of a Western Union scam.
