Guy sent me message saying he wanted to buy my 4X4 that was advertised on Gumtree. Without even looking at the car wanted to purchase buy taking my, and he put these in BOLD, bank details or paypal infomation and that he would arrange for the car to be shipped. He excuse for not being able to pay in person was quote "i don't have access to my bank account online as am not with my credit card details here but i have my ANZ bank account linked up with my PayPal account so I will be paying you through PayPal to your nominated bank account" Thankyou Scamdex for listing this guy up, Total Scam!
