  Information
Name:
   David Mark
I advertised selling a car on car sales and gum tree and reveived a text message asking the lowest price but mumber was non returnable and asked to reply to his email address provided. Replied by email to get the following reply. All sounded suspicious and after googling his job location and coming across this site, it made me realise its all a scam.

Thanks for alot for getting back i really appreciate , My name is David and am working at sea at the moment,on the west aquarius submersible to be precise.I would have loved to call you directly but due to the nature of my work we do not have access to phone at the moment,its 20days off and 10days on,which is why I contacted you with internet messaging facility.

I am buying this for my first son who just graduated ontop of his class at Charles Darwin University in NT ,He studied Building Design & Architecture. I want it to be the perfect graduation gift for him and am making it a surprise package ,Does it have any history I should be aware of? and why are you selling if you don\'t mind my asking.I am already in talks with freighters that will handle the pickup and delivery .I will really appreciate if you can email more info and pictures .

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 atwww.paypal.com.au and I will make the payment through paypal, this way, all I will need is your paypal email address.
