A day after placing my caravan for sale on Ebay and Gumtree, I received an sms from Brian Daniel wanting to buy the caravan and asking for our best price. I sent an email to him and he accepted straight away asking for my Paypal details or bank deposit details. He said he didn\'t need to view the caravan and would arrange for a courier agent to pick it up. It was at that stage I became suspicious as it all seemed too easy! I then went on the internet and found a similar scam in which the wording of his email was almost identical to what he had sent me. I have not replied to his email yet as I wanted to let him think I don\'t suspect him. I am reporting this as a warning to others as I believe if I send details of Paypal etc. he will then send a fake Paypal reply saying he has paid, then he will probably ask for money to be wired to pay for shipping costs which he will say that he will reimburse. Of course this will not happen as he will have already taken what he wants from my account.
