Contacted me \"SMS\" requesting a little more info on vehicle--but only via e-mail as he \"can\'t read SMS\" replies. Here is the message he sent---very familiar to everyone else. Notice the incorrect grammar (I\'ll vs. I\'d; convinience vs convenience; etc.)
Hello ,

Great reading from you. I am interested in the immediate purchase. I will take it for the price you\'ve mentioned and I will gladly cover PayPal charges from my end.

I can only make the payment via paypal because it\'s very safe and secure for both of us. In case you don\'t have a paypal account I\'ll advice you to register for one at www.paypal.com. I have a private pick-up agent that will contact you in-order to handle the pick-up at any location of your choice once the payment is completed.

Question: I\'ll like you to tell me more about the present mechanical condition, how often do you service it, mechanical history, have you ever experience any mechanical problem with it before and why are you selling it?

Do you have a linkedin id?
Look forward to reading from you at your earliest convinience.

Best Regards,
