| Aquarius Submersible Carsguide scam |
Advertised my car on www.carsguide.com.au (posted 25/11/12)
Initially received a phone SMS providing email address to contact yesterday 26/11/12
I responded with an email, saying car still for sale & in good working condition.
Email response as follows:
Thanks for the response, It\'s really appreciated. I would have loved to call but due to bad weather our SAT phone is currently scrambled as I\'m presently on the west Aquarius submersible to be precise. Please can i know the full condition of the Car and how much are you willing to let it go for as am buying it for my Son as a gift for his graduation. He lives at Perth. I would be more than appreciate if you could be open minded with me and let me know why you are selling the Car and it\'s working conditions.
Do you have any more pictures i can view? And mind you, I won\'t be able to come inspect it due to the nature of my profession and that\'s why I\'m asking all this questions and I\'m sorry if I\'m asking too much which i wouldn\'t want you to think otherwise about but to be honest and sincere with you, I\'m interested in purchasing it and i can pay right now.
I\'m in talks with the freighters that will handle the pickup and delivery. In regards to the payment, It would be sent to you via the fastest and safest online payment \"PayPal\" so i will need you to send me your PayPal email address so i can effect the payment, As i have my bank a/c attached to my PayPal account. Shipment or pickup would be made after payment has been sent, received and sorted out.
PS: In case you don\'t have a PayPal account,It\'s reliable fast,secure and easy to use PayPal, All you need to do is to log on to visit www.paypal.com.au to set up an account. All you need to forward to me is the email used to set up the account so i can make the payment and get the funds across to you immediately. Please get back to me so that we can arrange for pick up as i will like the Car to be picked by a pickup agent. I wait to hear from you soonest.
I emailed back with more information and they asked for my bank details, what bank I was with, and to email them my paypal email address.. thank fully i googled Aquarius Submersible and found the same letter was sent to another man on the same day. Be careful don\'t get sucked in like I almost did..
