John Maddox
Email Address:
He contacted me regarding a car for sale that I had posted on Kijiji, stating \"Interested in your ad,Is there anything else to add?\"

When I responded with some more information about the car he replied \"just wanted to make sure nothing has been left out Happy to purchase at your asking price and do you have a PayPal account,as i will be paying the with PayPal and have pick up done from your location as i am away at the moment.In the meantime,can you send me more pictures?

Thinking it was a bit odd that he did not ask to view the car before he purchased it, I did a search of his name & email address & found this website.
