Received a message on my mobile early yesterday morning asking me for a firm price on the car I was selling and could I email him. He replied saying he was on a rig on the Aquarius submersible and couldn\'t look at the car but wanted as much information about it as possible as he was purchasing it for his son as a gift for his graduation and wanted it to be a surprise for him. After sending him another email about the car he replied saying he was ready to purchase and if I didn\'t want to give him bank details I could send my email address for receiving the payment through PayPal. I started to think things weren\'t right so that\'s when I googled Aguarius submersible and found nearly identical reports from other people. I sent another email last night asking some questions etc and said that we would prefer a cheque for payment. He hasn\'t replied.
I am reporting this scam so other people become aware, be very careful.
