1st email was
Firstly, Could you please get back to me with the details of the items you have for sale on gumtree, i might be willing to buy the lot.
which was weird as i had posted details... then the 2nd response was as others had reported
Thanks for your swift reply. I am interested in the lot and I would have loved to come for viewing and inspection but i am currently overseas at the moment and i want this item picked up before i get back. Due to my inability to make a bank deposit, I would be paying via PayPal which is safer for me. Kindly send me a paypal payment invoice or create an account at www.paypal.com.au if you dont have one. Iwill make a concrete pick up arrangement with my transport agent who will be coming over for pick up once you receive full payment into your PayPal account and if you have agreed to sell to me, kindly remove the listing on gumtree
Have a nice day.
Which was weird as i still hadnt settled on a price .... so she then said
I am going with the asking price....
Cool thanks, the price is ok with me and we have a deal, i will be expecting the invoice asap...
At which i point i googled her email address and see it posted here already , and have since become wiser about pay pal scams.
