I offered a vehicle for sale on Gumtree last night. This morning I received a text message:
Leesha likes to know if your listed car is still on for sale? If so kindly get back to her on lgeorgeastrid@gmail.com with the final price.
I emailed advising the vehicle was still for sale and the final price is $17,500.
Shortly afterwards I received an email as follows:
Thank you for the mail, I'm interested in buying this and i will be paying you the asking price so consider it sold,i will like you to be honest with me because i will not be available to come for inspects due to nature of my work, Honestly i am buying this for my son, but the issue is I'm a NAVY Vets and i just got deployed which starts tomorrow and am leaving any moment from now.It's strictly no call due to the lack of reception on the sea area. But I'm able to access email any time as will make use of computers.

I want it to be the perfect gift for him and am making it a surprise package as well ,Does it have any history I should be aware of? and why are you selling it if you don't mind my asking. I don't mind adding an extra $300.00 for you just to take down the posting..I am already in talks with freighters that will handle the pickup and delivery .I will really appreciate if you can email more info

Due to the nature of my work i am a very busy woman working all days as am a (Navy Veteran) am presently on-board, 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 link up with my PayPal account so I will be paying you through the Account to your nominated bank account so please kindly get back to me with your bank account details.i.e Account Name, Account Number and BSB Number or better still if you have a PayPal account so i can proceed with the payment and contact the courier agent who will come to pick it up and deliver it in NT for my son .Await your reply.
