He first contacted me via SMS where no number was listed so I couldn't reply there. There was just an email address which I clicked on and sent an email to.
Googled the email address and found you guys! :)
Cheers,
Khrystene

Here's his reply email to my initial email:

I had an SMS regarding my car and I received exactly the same email about being on a remote mine site of Energy Resources Australia in NT. I was very suspicious and thankfully googled it before going any further and found this website. BEWARE!!!!!
English was very sketchy which set my alarm bells ringing.

Scam Email
From: Andrew J McPherson Sent: Monday, 13 February 2017 9:45 PM To: Good Fella Subject: Re: price - PayPal details Apologies, i just got a mail from my courier now that a commission fee (Pickup Fee) of $1,249 has to be payed in order for them to schedule a date and time of coming for the pickup. But do not worry i will be making the payment of the commission fees with the full amount into your bank account. My private courier service headquarters is in the CHINA and all commission payments made for pickup from anywhere in the world is sent to their head quarters in the China and the only form of payments they accept is MoneyGram Transfer. I would have done it myself but there is no MoneyGram kiosk (SevenEleven Shop) around here, So as soon as you have been notified by PayPal about the full payment. All i am asking you is to help me proceed with the transfer of the commission fees through MoneyGram Transfer after the full payment has been made into your bank account so that my courier can come for the pickup and other necessary things that needs to be done. I will appreciate your help here. I will be making the full payment as soon I read back from you. Regards !! Andrew J

Scam Email
An email was sent to us from Daniel Brent asking to buy our bike. We weren't sure if this was a scam as we live far from the NT and it seemed absurd that anyone would want to courier our scooter to the NT. We are asking for a drivers license etc before we send details of any account. Does anyone have any other info, this page would indicate this is not the first time Daniel has tried this! (see below email from Daniel identical to the one above): Thanks for getting back,i'm pleased with the price and the condition as described on the advert,I work on a remote mine site, Energy Resources of Australia Ltd (ERA) Darwin NT.We do not have access to phone at the moment and that's why I contacted you with internet messaging facility,Does it have any history I should be aware of and why are you selling?
