I have a VW Golf on the Donedeal for sale, I\'ve got a SMS from \"janrth724\" : IS your donedeal car advert still available for sale? Kindly send me a swift response to ( as am interested in buying. Thanks, Christy

I sent an email for her (available and can view) and I got back an auto email:
Hello Good evening,

you owned it? I do not want much bargain as I want you to give me your
best price which you are willing to let it go because I am sure there
would be many people who are interested with a good prices that is why
I need your best price.Also, I want to know when last was it serviced?
Was it for personal transportation or for rental purpose as I want to
know how often you have used it and any condition like minor fault on
it which you have not posted on the advert site. P.S: Do not forget to
write me back the best price you are willing to let it go as I want to
buy it now.

Thanks, Christina.

Then I sent a couple of details, and get an answer again:


Thanks for your swift response as I\'m quite satisfied with the condition as am Okay with the price of XXXX EUR using PayPal and about the delivery have already contacted a shipper coming for the collection of it once payment has been confirmed by PayPal... I will not be able to view it due to my nature of work as am a full time worker. A shipping company will be coming for the pickup after payment has been made and will sign all papers on my behalf which is needed for the Purchase.

PayPal is an online banking solution that has the ability to transfer fund in a fast and secure manner which you are to attach your Bank Account to it so funds can be credited to your Bank Account directly. It is fast because funds are transferred in real time, and secure because all of your banking and personal details are not exposed. When transacting using PayPal, all you have to provide is your PayPal details instead of your bank details. After your money has been sent, PayPal will verify the transaction and immediately credit it to your Bank account and you can already start playing. Paying with your bank-account is safe as your bank-details will not be shared with the receiver.If you do not have an account with PayPal, visit and register with them. When you are done with the registration send me the email used for the registration with PayPal so i can pay in.

Then I turned to worried, because it looks too easy sell and very unnuteral and went on the Internet, and found on your webside her- his email address as a SCAMMER!
