West aquarius submersible

SMS message re car advertised. Wanted final price by email. ( james.laughton231@gmail.com) This was at 7.45am.
Received another SMS at 10.51am from same mobile number, but this time from someone called ELeanor Pacey. She wanted to buy the car, needed info on log books and service history, and final price.
Wanted info sent to her email address ( elpacey@yahoo.com.au )

The ph # used was +61 428 465117.

When I got home from work, I check my emails and found 1 from James Laughton explaining he worked on the West Aquarius submersible, so had to do direct bank transfer, or pay pal account. This was supposedly to be a gift for his son in Darwin on graduation from university. He said he was pricing shipping the car and enquired about car history and why I was selling. The email grammar suggested English is a second language for this person.

I thought it sus to buy car unseen, so checked here. Same MO, same names etc.
