I had a similar scam attempt from a listing on bikeexchange.com.au i rec\'d a txt from a dodgy mobile number. Txt said they were overseas but wanted to buy my bike without seeing it!
On both occassions the scam has arrived early after initial advertising

Same the others, a txt from a name, rebecca, not a number and the same response
Alright Mate, Thanks for your swift reply. I am interested in the gaming desktop and toshiba laptop and I would have loved to come for viewing and inspection but i am currently overseas at the moment and i want this item picked up before i get back. Due to my inability to make a bank deposit, I would be paying via PayPal which is safer for me. Kindly send me a paypal payment invoice or create an account at www.paypal.com.au if you dont have one. I will make a concrete pick up arrangement with my transport agent who will be coming over for pick up once you receive full payment into your PayPal account and if you have agreed to sell to me, kindly remove the listing on gumtree Have a nice day. Cheers
