I was selling a recliner chair for $1200 and this is the response after they sent the first email saying they were interested.
"I'm happy to read back from you and very keen to buy right now. I will not be able to meet you for inspection and collection because I moved to Riverton, but I have a personal representative courier agent that will meet you for collection after payment has been made, the courier agent will also handle and sort all paper work or registration if needed on this purchase when they meet you for collection.

I cannot take calls or make one due to my ear ailment I barely hear clear and I squeezed out time to search for the advert because I want the courier agent to deliver it to my new house in Riverton before my arrival. I am presently in my daughter's house, she just has a baby and I will be back to Riverton in December. I am ready to make the payment now so get back to me with the details below :

Account number:
BSB:
Name:
Final price:

That is all I need in order to make the payment through a secure online bank transfer from my bank to yours. I will transfer the money to your account and my personal representative courier agent will meet you for the collection and deliver it to my new house in Riverton after you confirmed the payment.

Thanks."

Since you’re here …
we have a small favour to ask. More people are visting Scamdex and Scamalot than ever but advertising revenues are falling fast and we have no 'product' to sell. And unlike many informational websites, we haven’t put up a paywall or membership barrier – we want to keep our site as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Scamdex/Scamalot websites takes a lot of time, money and hard work to keep running. We do this because we hate to see our fellow humans getting scammed out of their hard-earned money by low-lives.
