I posted my vehicle for sale on Gumtree. I received a text saying Kenny Scott was interested and I was to email him. I did. It turns out he was interested and wanted the car for his Son. He said he could not collect the car and his Agent in China would collect it. he said he would pay via Paypal and add $2100 plus $100 to the sale price as i would need to pay Chi-Li in China via Western Union first (out of my own pocket) before the balance for the vehicle would be released.

I received a response from this person, shortly after posting an ad to sell my car on Gumtree. He claims to work for the Australian Defence force and wants to purchasers the car for his son. He is prepared to pay an extra $300 if I remove the ad. I sent an invoice from PayPal now he has sent some convoluted nonsense about an agent in China and then requested my personal number.bank
