After I responded, 2nd email arrived from the rogue email@example.com address as follows:
Thanks for mailing back, I'm ok with the price and the condition, I work with Chevron Oil and Gas Expansion Project and we are presently offshore in Bibiyana Expansion Project. We do not have access to phone at the moment 15days off and 15days on and that's why I contacted you with internet messaging facility. Regarding the payment, i will be paying you through PayPal, please get back to me with your paypal details so i can process the payment or go to www.paypal.com to create a free PayPal account if you do not have PayPal account already. I also think that I can send the money directly from my paypal account to your bank account if you do have paypal account. I have also contacted my courier who will come for pick up and deliver it to my place in Dhaka after the whole fund has been cleared into your acct.
Await your reply
I replied, again, stating that I would prefer not to use Paypal, and would happily accept cash from the courier once he accompanied me to de/re-register the car in the scammer's name. Also remarked that I was surprised he wanted to buy the car without seeing it. Response from scammer as follows:
