Advertised a car for sale and receive text to purchase. But had to supply bank details and paypal details. I asked him to call me and he actually rang. Had a fake American accent and claims to be an Australian soldier based where phone does not work due to security. He asked no details aboutvthe car and when I asked him which car, he replied. How many am I selling. I said two, and offered to buy both without even knowing what kind of car it was. Red flag . Obviously a scam, but his initial contact looked like a buyer. He is just looking for bank account numbers to scam.

As above Thanks for the pictures. I asked for that in view of the fact that I might not be present for the inspection due to the nature of what I do. I am with the armed forces and I am presently at the Base conducting some training for new recruits. I would have placed a call to your number initially when I saw the advert but I can only text from here, unclassified calls are not allowed unless I make a request which doesn't get approved immediately but you can text me on 0481492129 if there is an information you wish to share through the phone. I am familiar with a pickup agent company that facilitates pick up's so they will be handling the pick up of the vehicle after when you have the total payment in your account. If there is anything else you think I should have a knowledge about, please don't hesitate to apprise me with the information. Now you can get back to me with your bank details so that I can proceed with the payment and I will be sending the payment from paypal to your bank account as a direct deposit. Looking forward to hearing from you, Thanks.
