I am advertising a car for sale. I recieved an SMS asking me to contact be email.
The email that he sent said
\"Thanks for mailing back,am ok with the price and the condition.I\'m at sea at the moment as petroleum engineer on a rig offshore,i won\'t be able to come for the inspection due to the nature of my work and i would have called but our calling is restricted.Regarding the payment,i will be paying you through PayPal,pls get back to me with your paypal details so i can process the payment,you can alternatively send your bsb and acct number if you have no paypal acct.I have also contacted my courier who will come for pick up after the whole fund has been cleared into your acct.
Await your reply.\"

Before I realised that it was too good to be true, I sent him Paypal invoices rather than provide details and they came back with the name of \"Wesley Selvage\" as the recipient of the invoices.
