I did a google search for the name 'John Maddox' and I now know this is a scam from the previous messages posted here. Thanks!

Sees a car advert and sends you an email saying will buy at asking price send some pictures. Then asks for your PAYPAL account details. As I saw this scam already posted on this site I haven't stopped communicating with him.

He reads an advert for a car sale. He writes a very brief email like so "Very much interested in your ad,anything else to add?". You answer that it is a good car then he asks for your lowest price and offers to pay you through PayPal and send someone to collect the car as he lives on a rig offshore and he is buying the car for his father. He asks for your address and PayPal details. I then told him I need his name, his UK address and a landline number I can contact. He then said he lives and works in Spain to which I said a Rig in Spain???? doesnt make sense to me and he never answered back. Beware.
