He asked me more pictures of the car (Inside, engine...) and also at what date was done the last service.
I tried to reply by text but it didn\'t work so i replied by email.

Walker, George Michael
Email Address:
Selling car on gum tree, received message asking for last service date, more interior photo's and email address. I couldn't reply to the message, so emailed photos and asking price. Received email back confirming they would like to buy and wanted bank details. They wouldn't advise any further contact details just wanted bank details to make payment. Upon further request sent me a WA drivers license with the name George Michael Walker on it and the worst photo shop job ever. Emailed back to cancel sale. Emails I sent had a time date 9hours (central African time) after I sent them, he claimed he was in NZ which is 2 hours before my local time. Read email conversation below, I spelt out why I didn't want to buy anymore and his final response.

Scam Email
ME: Once again thankyou for your time and enjoy your morning. HIM: -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Date: Thu, 12 Jun 2014 11:22:33 +0100 Subject: Re: 2007 Hilux From: It is foolish of you to jump into these conclusions because non of these does not have anything to do with me. Good Luck with your sale and thanks for wasting my time. ME: On Thu, Jun 12, 2014 at 11:17 AM, Walker Unfortunately I will have to renege on the sale on the basis of the following: - upon review of your email times you are receiving my emails 9 hours after I send them. - upon review of the world timezones NZ is in front of melbourne by 2hrs - upon further review of world time zones, 9 hours behind melbourne is Central African Republic. - if you were a real aussie bloke you would not be replying to emails with your last name it would be GEORGE by your license. -you certainly aint a miner, more office boy looking but we all know that\'s what you really don\'t look like. -your eagerness for payment of a large amount of money just as simple as that is ridiculous much the same as trying to get ones bank details - you are too trusting for ones liking This all points to the fact it is a scam so I thank you kindly for your time and effort but no longer interested. Enjoy your morning. HIM: -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Date: Thu, 12 Jun 2014 10:31:22 +0100 Subject: Re: 2007 Hilux From: I need your trust on this transaction and I have since attached my licence for your reference, please send me your bank details and i will send the payment to you in full. Kind Regards, Walker. ME: On Thu, Jun 12, 2014 at 10:13 AM, I am happy to provide bank info but please understand my reluctance to provide these at this moment without any other information from yourself other then a first name and email address, can you provide any detailed information to proceed with the sale. I respect your position in regards to phone communication so happy for email communication. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Date: Thu, 12 Jun 2014 09:57:46 +0100 HIM: Subject: Re: 2007 Hilux From: Change of ownership will be sorted when the courier comes over to meet with you as they have all my information as well as a copy of my licence and my signature needed for the form. As you are aware of my location, i work in the mine and it\'s located on the outskirt of town the Phone network is around here is very poor, if you try to call me now it will tell you it\'s not available and this is why i suggest everything can be communicated through email. Looking forward to your response. Please send your bank details and i will make the payment to your account. Walker. ME: On Thu, Jun 12, 2014 at 9:54 AM, Can you please provide your name and contact details for paperwork. Do you have a phone number I can contact you on to provide bank details? HIM: -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Date: Thu, 12 Jun 2014 08:49:52 +0100 Subject: Re: 2007 Hilux From: I will give you the benefit by trusting all information you have provided about the car. I\'m aware of your location and I have arranged with the transport company and they will be coming after the car has been paid for to load it on a truck and transport it to Darwin. Please send your bank details and i will facilitate the payment. ME: Sent at 4:45pm 12 Jun my local time. On Thu, Jun 12, 2014 at 7:45 AM, HI Walker, Happy to make the sale. Can assure you that the vehicle has never been in any crashes, the car has been well looked after and can provide full service reports from my mechanic as well as the service book. I assure you will not be disappointed and there are no issues with the vehicle. I\'m happy to remove the add from gumtree if a deposit can be made. Happy to take $1000 deposit and arrange remaining payment when you are back in Australia. Please confirm you are happy with this arrangement and how you would like to make the deposit. Can I ask when you are due to move back to Australia? HIM: -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Date: Thu, 12 Jun 2014 03:12:02 +0100 Subject: Re: 2007 Hilux From: I\'m happy to offer you $31,000 for the car, I work in NZ but i\'m moving back home and I need the car once i\'m back to Darwin hence me reason for buying. I want you to give me your assurance that the car has not been in any crash, everything runs well though you need to understand that i do not have anyone to view the car for me. So i ask you take the ad off gumtree because i\'m ready to make payment for the car. Walker. ME: On Thu, Jun 12, 2014 at 2:56 AM, Vehicle was last serviced 21/1/2014 at 177,000. Asking price is $31,000.
