I have a car for sale on allclassifieds.com.au.
When I first posted the ad, and each time I make a change to it, I get a contact from someone (well, apparently five different people) and who claim to be: a) a ship’s engineer, b) working on an oil rig (2), c) out of the country due to employment (2).
Each agree to my asking price without seeing the car, each insist payment be made via PayPal, and each will send an agent to pick up the car.
What is this about?
ps At the risk of having 500 such contacts, I won’t identify the ad.
