i was contacted via text message about my 1970 XW Ford Falcon Ute on www.gumtree.com.au

phone was displayed as : ricrawf. Hi there, what is the final price for your car on gumtree and is the RWC valid? Kindly reply NOW by email only to eltmur2@gmail.com cos I am very keen. Elton

I emailed my reply and got this.

Hi again, thank you for getting back, I agree to buy at your price and i am keen myself. How I wish i could come for inspection but i\'m currently deployed and will be away for quite a number of weeks,precisely 9weeks according to the programme.

Here is the deal, I know you can\'t possibly wait for 9weeks but I will make full payment to you and once your payment clears, I will arrange for a shipper to contact you and pick it up from you. This is the best way I can handle this professionally cos I am keen like I said earlier.

Due to this inability to bring cash physically, the best way to pay for me would be through PayPal which is safer for you and I plus i will cover the paypal transfer fees. Kindly send me a paypal payment invoice or create an account at www.paypal.com.au if you dont have one.

I can also make the payment directly to your bank account through paypal if you insist on bank deposit, My paypal account is attached to my bank account so this is not a problem. I know their are lots of time wasters on internet business but this is real cos I will make a concrete pick up arrangement with my transport person who will be coming over for pick up once you receive full payment into your PayPal account.

I hope we have a deal? Have a nice day and please, Just few more clear photos will be appreciated as well.

I\'d like to know certain things too;
Are you the first owner?
What is your reason for selling?
I\'m sorry, just want to be sure about the sale before i proceed


Luckily i hate Paypal for big purchases and ran his email address on this site. This story also matches another on here titled: Ford Falcon XR6 Ute. advert was also on gumtree.com.au

So you can imagine what my following email would be like.
Follow Ups/Extra Information. Most recent is listed first.
