I responded to the email and was sent the following:
Great! please consider it sold and cancel every other appointment regarding it,i am buying it for my son who is moving to a new house and i am read to pay your full asking price, i have read through the advert and i'm totally satisfied with it and i will be glad if you can get back to me with some pics if available,sadly i won't be able to come for the inspection and pick up due to my disabilities,i loss my hearing and being on a wheelchair but I have a courier agent that will help me to pick it up at your preferred location.
Regarding the payment i can only pay via PayPal at the moment and I will be responsible for all the PayPal fee/charges on this transaction kindly get back to me with your PayPal email and the pick up location so that i can inform the courier agent about it now?
Awaiting your reply soon...

person demands you to email them back instantly and contacts off a Sheffield number, with strange words such as 'consider the item sold' and 'awaiting your reply soon' they personally cannot come and pick it up but soon want your paypal details, because that's their only payment method apparently. Michelle Tony is the pseudonym name and in this instance they are wheelchair bound although in other complaints from other users, they are business persons in New Zealand !

Texted from 971 512 6550 on a car ad. Told me to email friend who is interested @ firstname.lastname@example.org. Looked up the email and number and apparently this is not a new trick
