|+1 Car sales scam |
I received a message asking for the final price of my car and could I reply by email.
Fortunately my daughter did more investigating and found out that it was a scam.
Once I emailed back saying that I would not hand over the car to an agent and that I needed cash the email suddenly stopped.

I was selling my car on Gumtree. This "prospective" buyer sent a text and redirected me to email. Said he was a remote area worker from Darwin and couldn't view the car but would send an agent to pick it up. He even sent me a copy of his drivers license (stolen) to suck me in to thinking he was an Aussie. Then he asked ME to send HIM money to a chinese address for the agents fee. I was wondering if the guy on the license (Peter Wayne Carmichael) knew someone had stolen his ID, so I tracked him down on facebook and sent him a message. I also sent the Chinaman a message that I can't repeat on here.
