Hi,
I have just put my car up on car guide for sale.

I got a response from a bloke who says he wants it and will use Paypal.

He wants my Paypal details.

He claims to work off sure on a rig and wants the car for his holiday?

It sure didn't look right to me.

Many thanks

Yep I will just ignore him.

All started from an SMS message requesting details of the car. Should have guessed it then as the details are available under car guide. Got me at a weak moment while I was out on a bush walk.

I emailed him the details then got the paypal reply.

I have not provided paypal details and said I would prefer to exchange a bank cheque when the car is picked up. After all there is paper work to be completed by the seller and buyer when selling a car.

Hopefully will not hear from him or should I say IT again.

If so who do I report this to or is it a waste of time.

Rich
