would appreciate if you email me with more pictures (if available) too
since i won\'t be be able to see this in person,what\'s the PayPal email
to send funds to in order for me to pay you ASAP,And if you don\'t have
a paypal account, it is very easy to set up, go to www.paypal.com.au
and get it set up or you send me your BSB and account number so i can

Beware, claimed to be interested. Extremely broken English essay email replies. Claimed to have an agent pickup the car and then transfer payment. Sketch from the getgo, number hidden from text, refused to call. Claimed to be apart of the mining company of Australia based in Darwin. Stay safe

Posing as keen motor bike buyer, was going to pay cash straight up, but later needed me to send $1750 to his courier in China as he left his CC at home (was away work into on rig off shore). He would then given me the $1705 on top of the $5K for bike. Grammar and whole email was wrong when you read it all back - broken English and way too long. Too much information not reliant.
Hunt him down.
