made out he was interested in buying a motorcycle that was advertised on gumtree. Wanted to buy it without even viewing it, then wanted bank account details and tried to ask for assistance in paying for a courier from the WA to Darwin stating he will add it onto the amount he will place into bank account. $900 extra. I asked him to send a photo of his license, he then asked me to send one of mine first. If he had nothing to hide why ask for mine and reply like that.

Thanks for getting back,I'm fine with the price likewise the condition as described on the advert,exactly what am looking for,I work on a remote mine site, Energy Resources of Australia Ltd (ERA) Darwin,NT and the reception is terrible. We do not have access to phone at the moment,which is why I contacted you with internet messaging facility. Where is it located at the moment?Does it have any history I should be aware of? and why are you selling if you don't mind my asking.I am already in talks with the courier that will handle the pick-up and delivery. SMS As regards the payment, I can pay you $1,350 through PayPal OR direct bank deposit (EFT),using PayPal instant bank wire transfer service, I will need your bank details and I will make the payment through PayPal facility to your bank account,all I will need is your PayPal email address OR account number,BSB number and account name. With the issue of my details,transferring the name of ownership and signing of all paperwork will be done by the freight agent so you don't have to worry about that. I have limited time on the computer,your quick response will be appreciated. Thanks.... Await your reply
