Listed my car for sale. Get late nite text from number above which shows as Florida number and I\'m in Manitoba Canada. Says he will pay me $700 over my asking price!! I emailed back and pointed out that I am in CANADA. He replies with lengthy email about \"car is for my brother\" email copy is here:
Hi  Mate
                   just thinking you might have had some buyer\'s interested in buying your Vehicle and i think the best way to outbid them is by offering you additional 700 to your asking price on the ad,  Well am actually purchasing it for my Brother at home to have something to move around with when am not available but i won\'t be available to come for the inspection my self due to where i am presently . I do have a pick-up agent that will be contacting you on where and when the pick-up will take place after have completed the payment my self .

If you don\'t mind can you please tell me a little bit more about the present mechanical condition,how often you do the servicing and the history ? I will be waiting for your response then if we come to an agreement i will proceed with the payment immediately.

David
