He claimed to want to buy my car I had up for sale on autotrader.ca. Is a live person as he responded directly to questions, but also kept to a script:
"Thanks for getting back to me on this.I'm seriously interested in this posted AD and i will really love to purchase it right away. Kindly put off the ad right away and consider me as your favorite buyer.I'm buying it for my holiday,i am marine engineer and am on a ship right now,i won't be able to come for the inspection due to my work basis...,I will need this following details so i can proceed with the payment right away."
"How I wish to come and view it and pay cash on pick up but i am marine engineer and am on a ship right now,..I can only make payment through this form of payment{PayPal} because i dont have access to my bank account online or any other form of payment as i dont have internet banking my bank a/c is attached to to my PayPal account, i will need you to give me your PayPal email address so i can make the payments asap and pls if you dont have PayPal account yet, it is very easy to set up, go to www.paypal.com and get it set up.I will need you to provide me with the following information to facilitate the Payment...Your(PayPal email).With the issue of my details,transferring the name of ownership and signing of all paperwork will be done by the pick up agent so you don't have to worry about that."

I suspected a scam, and found this similar scripted scam. No loss.
