I emailed him back and received the usual email:
Thanks for mailing back.I am away at sea at the moment,i work with New Zealand Oil and Gas (NZOG) and we are presently offshore in New Zealand Taranaki Basin on kapo project.We do not have access to phone at the moment,its 15days off and 15days on,which is why I contacted you with internet messaging facility. I am buying this for my for my holiday, and i want it to be delivered before my arrival in NT . However,does it have any history I should be aware of? and why are you selling if you don\'t mind my asking and I will really appreciate if you can email more info and if possible more photos.
I am already in talks with the courier that will handle the pick-up and delivery to my family . As regards the payment, I can pay you through direct bank deposit,using ppal instant bank wire transfer service, I will need your bank details.If you are not comfortable with that, you can set up a paypal account proper at www.paypal.com.au and I will make the payment through paypal, this way, all I will need is your paypal email address,so i can proceed with the payment and contact the courier agent who will come to pick it up and deliver it in my place.
I thought it a bit weird about the holiday in the NT, etc. Decided to look up Taranaki Basin on Kap Project and found all these scam listings.
