Car sale scam
 Scammer
  Information
Name:
   Toby Johnson
Email Address:
   crldwrds1@gmail.com
Responded to a car for sale ad by 12 digit cell phone number TXT giving the email address crldwrds1@gmail.com.
Asked for firm price, made an offer and then wanted bank details but would not provide a normal phone number. Eventually got the number 0889110673 which rang but was cut-off.
The ad was placed on CarsGuide.com.au.
Wanted me to pay a courier agent via Western Union (which he could have done himself).
