Person picked up my mobile phone number off carsales.com.au from an advertisement i placed. The text was from Jerome asked Is your ad still available for sale? easier to contact me on gtbsky01@gmail.com What the condition and firm price. I responded via email with a lower than listed offer to commence negotiation and got this response.

Thank you for the mail,i am okay with the condition Likewise your
asking price is quite reasonable and affordable considering others
I\'ve seen lately, I\'ll have it for the listed price, please kindly send me your
paypal payment email and name to set up purchase, i will arrange for pick up
after the cleared payment via paypal. Also more pics will be appreciated.

Many Thanks

I thought it was dodgy so googled the name and found this website - Which is great - keep it going
