I am selling a car on Auto Trader i received an email just saying "Still Available?" I replied saying it was and would they like to view it. I then got the following reply:
"Thanks for the response,i am very satisfied with your advert,i will like you to get back to me with is present condition and your final price,i will be requesting this transaction should be done via PayPal,so the PayPal charges is on me,kindly send me your PayPal email or send me money request,you can alternatively send me your bank account information if you have no PayPal account,so that i can proceed with the payment asap as am very busy at work and do not have much time around me.Make sure you get back to me asap,so that we can arrange for pick up as i will like the pick up to hold at your residence location,so no shipping.

This seems to be a standard response as I have seen another case on here with the same response.
