In response to bikesales.com.au ad recieved the following response:
Great! please consider it sold, i want this for my son who study abroad as he will be coming home shortly, i have read through the advert and i'm totally satisfied with it,sadly i would not be able to come personally to collect it, as i work on a rig as a mechanical engineer, i would have love to call but We do not have access to phone at the moment that's why I contacted you with internet messaging facility. I will be paying you through PayPal or bank Transfer, it depends on which one you prefer if so,get back to me with your PayPal email address or your bsb number and account number so that i can send you the money.I have also contacted my agent who will come for pick up and deliver it to my new house after the whole fund has been cleared into your acct. Await your reply.

Unfortunately being a fairly trusting person forwarded on bank account details for payment.

Same guy just contacted me wanting final price. Luckily I knew it was sus so I googled his email and found this (thanks!). Maybe I should write back and say something like "I guess you won't be able to pick it up as you work on a rig as a mechanical engineer?" :)

User has made multiple attempts to contact me over various periods asking for best and final price to be emailed to his e-mail address. When I txt back no response. I then found his details on this awesome site. very stoked to have seen the details as I can't imagine how bad this could have ended up!
