He sent me several e-mail to buy my car, first texting me than e-mailing. This is one of them:

Thanks for the info. I\'m very much interested and I want you to know that you don\'t have to surf around looking for buyers because you\'ve just found one. This is a gift for my Dad in Idaho, I hope you understand my eagerness to complete this transaction a.s.a.p...?

I am away at sea at the moment, I work as an Oceanographer and I am presently offshore in New Zealand Taranaki Basin on kapo project. Once I make the paypal payment and is transferred into your account, the agent will contact you in-order to handle the pickup from your location and he will also be of assistance concerning the change of ownership by presenting all the information\'s/documents needed to complete the change of ownership.

This transaction is based on HUGE amount of trust and I expect to see this from your end as it is on mine.
