|+1 sent a txt to my mobile phone, asking if our camper was still for sale|
I was suspicious of the spelling and text itself, so Googled it straight away and saw that Frank had done this before!!! So not responding

Also tried this on me. Is also going under the name JENNA SMART (email@example.com).Says he is marine business man from Hobart. Gave no mobile number but wanted paypal account details. Asks if item is still for sale "Thanks for the prompt response. just to let you know that i am really keen and interested in the purchase.. i am okay with the condition..are you the first and real owner? pls, let me know as i will be making the payment soon..as i am okay with the price..i am a marine Business man from hobart. Kindly get back to me with your paypal email address or better still u can send me a paypal invoice so that i can complete the transaction...pls, kindly get the ad off the internet or mark it as sold.. i am really keen about the purchase..in case u dont have a paypal account, simply log on to www.paypal.com.au you can either attach it to ur bank account or credit card and fund in paypal can be transferred to either account.. i have also arranged a pick up agent that will come for the pick up as soon as the fund clears into your paypal. I will be waiting to hear from u soonest. Thanks" This does not sound like the speech of a marine business man.
