I received the following email in response to a number of adds I had placed -

Alright Mate,

I am interested in buying your item. I wish i could come for viewing and inspection as am currently out of the country at the moment and i want it picked up before my arrival, though i will be back in couple of weeks. I would like to pay you using paypal due to my inability to make a bank deposit which is safer for me. Kindly send me a paypal payment invoice or create an account with paypal on www.paypal.com.au if you dont have one. I will make a solid pick up arrangement with the shipping company who will be coming over for pick up once you receive full payment into your paypal account. Have a nice day. Few more photos will be appreciated as well.

Jim

I questioned which item \'Jim was interested in and got -

i want all your available item for sale

By this time I was suspicious so did a google search on the name/email address and found this site.
Thankfully, it hasn\'t impacted my items but when you are trying to sell something, you can be easily taken in.
