Hello
Great reading from you. I'm a serious buyer with genuine interest Kindly consider my offer of $36,000 in order to outbid the offers you might receive or have received. I am a marine engineer on a rig offshore and am currently in the middle of the Southern Ocean. Am buying this as a surprise gift for my Dad.

To start with, I can only make the payment via paypal because it's very safe,fast and secure for both of us. In case you don't have a paypal account I'll advice you to register for one at www.paypal.com. I won't be available to come for inspection due to my present location because I'll still be on the ship for the next 1 Month. I have a private pick-up agent that will contact you in-order to handle the pick-up at any location of your choice once the payment is completed.

I'll like you to tell me more about the present mechanical condition of the vehicle, how often do you service it, the car history, have you ever experience any mechanical problem with this vehicle?

I'll be the one to handle the payment via paypal because the pick up agent doesn't deal with cash payment on behalf of their customers. Your quick response is greatly appreciated so that we can proceed with this transaction a.s.a.p. I will keep checking my email every 15 minutes for your message.

Best Regards,

I am sure the same guy wanted to buy my Kimberley Karavan, just wanted the details of what engine it had in it before closing the deal.

I think his sister is the nice lady in Nigeria that wants to send me a gazilllion US dollars her late husband left for her to invest. Don't tell anyone, we have to keep the deal a secret!

Bonz,
I think 48 carrots is a fair price for an old clunker. At least you are dealing in veggies and not fruits.

I will raise you 1/2 a carrot and may the best diamond win. I now my rocks fella.

Thanks All. My latest offer is $40.000 but he can only use PayPal. It is upsetting to think that his Father will miss out on the big surprise. As was said Delete Delete Delete.....

Hi Guys,
This guy wanted to buy my caravan for his dad as a surprise as well.
Watch out if you have answered his email they can get info from your account.
My add was hacked and the price dropped to a very cheap price with a re direction on my email to their email so any responses i got from the add went to the scammer. Hoping to suck in some buyer thinking he was getting a great deal.
Trading post were very good about it and chased it up but can't catch them
I wish my sons were so generous.
If they put all their efforts into actually working instead of scamming they would make a good living.
As said above delete delete delete

It's just not fair.
I work on a deep sea oil platform, and have been trying to buy 4x4's, caravans, motorbikes and ancillary gear from Ebay and Carsales for my family as gifts, and no-one will sell them to me.
What am I doing wrong?
I have a Paypal account.
I may have to report this to the Anti-discrimination Board.
We poor sea platform workers are being unjustly classed as crooks.
I'll get there someday, or die wanting to.

Bushmarx.

I would never discriminate against Oil Platform Workers. Just bring your Oil Platform up into Sydney Harbour and I will meet you off Pier One. but it will be Cash Only. I really need the cash so that I can surprise my Father with some cash for his Birthday. He is an old Sea Dog and wants to buy a boat. As a keen photographer he want to photograph some Deep Sea Oil Platforms. I am prepaided to cover your out of pocket expanses
