Trying to sell daughters car and they sent information of email address to her father (who has the car) I was the one who did further follow up (Mum) and sadly after I had sent details of bsb and account number, did further googling of information supplied, and now here we are. Seems this address/licence number/date of birth are used frequently for this scam.

I live at:36 koolpinyah crescent tiwi northern territory 0810,Australia but presently am at work at our minning field and will be coming for my holiday soon,thats why i want it to be delivered prior my arrival.
I've never sold a car this way before so am cautious... You would like to pay for the car and have someone else pick it up for you without seeing it?
