We are selling our car on gum tree within a few minutes we had a reply from Chris smith, 1st email replys weren\'t working we\'re he used a diffrent email, then we recieved another saying sorry I\'m working on the west aquarius so no phone connection up here. We emailed pics and info and he was all for buying it. He had a freighter organized to pick it up and take to the N.T where he was going to be holidaying. Then came the problems where the freighters didn\'t except certain money orders and because he worked away he couldn\'t get to the post office so he asked if he could put the freighting cost on top of the money he owed me taking it to $3000. Just be careful when we starting getting weary we checked on the Internet and up popped all these same problems by the same person! :(
