Name:

Email Address:

Runs scam on carsales.com.au
First email, he says he is short on hearing so cannot call or use the telephone. He communicates by email. He asks for more photos of the car.
He says he wants to purchase the car and agrees with the asking price. And then he says "do you have a PayPal account,as i will be paying the with PayPal and have pick up done from your location as i am away at the moment."
Next email he says "do you know how to send a PayPal payment request,if so,please send one to this email,so I can proceed with payment".
I believe this is a scam as no one in right mind will purchase a car for many tens of thousands of dollars just from photos. Also the bullshit about Paypal payment request etc.
